The Torah in English Free

Contains Ads

The word Torah comes from the Hebrew tohráh, which can be translated "address",
"Teaching" or "law"(Proverbs 1: 8; 3: 1; 28: 4).

Many times the word tohráh is used to refer to the first five books of the Bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.The set of these books is also known as the Pentateuch, which means "quintuple volume" in Greek. As it was Moses who wrote the Torah, it is also called "the book of the law of Moses" (Joshua 8:31; Nehemiah 8: 1). Apparently, it was originally a single volume, but then it was divided into five books to make it easier to consult.

Tohráh can also refer to the laws that the Israelites received on specific matters, as "the law [tohráh] of the sin offering", "the law about leprosy" and "the law about the Nazarite" (Leviticus 6:25; 14:57; Numbers 6:13).

Sometimes the word tohráh refers to the direction and teaching given by parents, wise people or God himself (Proverbs 1: 8; 3: 1; 13:14; Isaiah 2: 3).

What the Torah contains:

-The story of God's relationship with humanity from creation to the death of Moses (Genesis 1:27, 28; Deuteronomy 34: 5).

-The rules of the Law of Moses (Exodus 24: 3). This Law contains more than 600 mandates. A very important and well-known one is the shema, the declaration of Jewish faith. A part of the shema says: "You have to love Jehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength" (Deuteronomy 6: 4-9). Jesus said that this was "the greatest commandment of the Law" (Matthew 22: 36-38).
