Books of the Old Covenant – The Exalted Name Bible™ Edition (ENB).
Undoubtedly, as you read thru this edition of Scripture, you are going to see many similarities between passages found in either the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible, the New King James Version (NKJV) of the Bible, The New American Standard Bible (NASB or NASV) Versions of the Bible, or any number of other Common Versions of the English Bibles that are in print today.
That fact, however, does not mean that any other version of Scripture has been plagiarized within The Exalted Name Bible™.
Simply stated: Thru careful analysis of the Hebrew wording, coupled with a tremendous amount of detailed word by word searching and investigation, this editor entered into The Exalted Name Bible™ the best interpretation of those words found (to the best of my understanding). In many instances you will see where The Exalted Name Bible™ reads exactly like many editions of those Common Versions of the Bible, but that merely indicates an absolute refusal to add, subtract or change (manipulate) a word or two, only to insure that any particular passage did not mimic something that was already written. If verses within any interpretation are (also) correct, the verse should not need to be changed on a “Just Because” basis!
The Exalted Name Bible™ is not a, “Just Because” piece of work!
The Word of Elohim is not some piece of fiction. Therefore, if any other Bible version is believed to be correct in their interpretation, The ENB™ remained true to that correct interpretation, and provides the absolute cleanest rendition of the inspired Word possible. Similarities between The ENB™and other versions of Scripture will be found.
On the other hand, many thousands of verses throughout the whole of Scripture, as seen within The ENB™, have absolutely NOTHING in common with entries found in those Common Versions of the Bible. In those instances the interpretation provided is the most accurate possible. The last ten years have not been spent copying and pasting passages from existing Common Versions of the Bible.
Finally, let it also be understood that The Exalted Name Bible™ has at least twelve thousand (12,000) extremely significant changes from any Common Version of Scripture. Entry of The Exalted Name, “YEHOWAH”, into this work, and the elimination of the phrase, “The LORD”, is a massive repair to a very old deed. Similarly, entry of the correct name of our Messiah, “YEHOSHUA”, which means: YEHOWAH’S DELIVERER, because He came in His Father’s Name, adds significantly to those repairs. Yet these changes are only two of the restorations made within The Exalted Name Bible™. As you venture through these verses you will see many thousands of names, titles and expressions restored; all with the sole intent of Exalting, Glorifying, Magnifying and Honoring That Name which is to be praised, honored and adored above all other Names.
May you be richly blessed as you witness The Exalted Name of YEHOWAH coming alive in your heart through the shed blood and Witness of His Son, YEHOSHUA the Messiah!
Sincerely and wholeheartedly I submit the Old Covenant to you for His Glory,
Lawrence T. (Larry) Vosen, Ph.D.
