Product Description

Since the publication of the New Testament edition, the BasisBibel has been hailed in the English-speaking world by students and professors of German alike. Each sentence contains no more than sixteen words and no more than one subordinating clause. With its concise sentences, contemporary German, and straightforward explanations of key biblical words and concepts in the margins, it is the perfect German Bible translation for the student of German. It can also be read in a variety of formats, including tablets, computers, and smartphones, and additional background information on the content is available online.

Now that the Hebrew Psalms have been newly translated for the BasisBibel, we are pleased to offer a new edition with the New Testament and the Psalms together. This new translation is notable in that the character of the Hebrew poetry remains recognizable in the German version. The text lines reflect the typical parallel structure of Hebrew poetry and are therefore ideal for both personal and class reading. The consistently rhythmic language and the extensive retention of the unique metaphorical expression of the original text make the reading of this fascinating book of the Bible in German a delight.
