The Hebrew Bible: A Critical Edition

The Hebrew Bible: A Critical Edition (HBCE) is a new critical edition of the Hebrew Bible featuring a critical text and extensive text-critical introduction and commentary. Each book of the Hebrew Bible will be addressed in a separate volume, with a single volume each for the Minor Prophets, the Megillot, and Ezra-Nehemiah. This project represents a departure from the other major textual editions (the Biblia Hebraica Quinta and the Hebrew University Bible), which are diplomatic editions.

N.B. In 2014 the project changed its name from The Oxford Hebrew Bible to The Hebrew Bible: A Critical Edition (HBCE).
