This copy of our Hebrew-English Bible is just intended for those who want to print out the books on their computers for study offline; note that some of these files are huge, and will take a long time to download, not to mention print. You should use the "Print Preview" function of your browser to see if the number of pages and letter size seem right for you (we generally recommend using smaller type than you would want when reading from the screen, unless you have vision problems): On our webmaster's machine, for example, Genesis prints out at 106 pages at the smallest type with 14 verses on the first page; 166 pages at medium type with 9.3 verses; 272 pages at the largest type with only 6 verses.
Prophets - Joshua (247K), Judges (240K), Samuel (579K), Kings (600K), Isaiah (456K), Jeremiah (530K), Ezekiel (481K), Hosea (67K), Joel (27K), Amos (53K), Obadiah (9K), Jonah (18K), Micah (39K), Nahum (17K), Habakkuk (20K), Zephaniah (21K), Haggai (15K), Zechariah (80K), Malachi (23K)
Writings - Chronicles (627K), Psalms (659K), Job (270K), Proverbs (228K), Ruth (33K), Song of Songs (37K), Ecclesiastes (74K), Lamentations (47K), Esther (73K), Daniel (148K), Ezra / Nehemiah (245K)
Here are direct links to recordings in Hebrew on the Israeli Snunit Kodesh site, used with permission from Audio Scriptures International and the United Bible Society, ©1976; they are not chanted with a melody, but are clearly pronounced in Sephardic-style Hebrew.
The files are very large (up to 54MB for an mp3 or 478MB for a zip!), so you really need a DSL, T1, or Cable high-speed Internet connection to use them. It is generally best to download them to disk for repeated playing (to save a file, right click on the link, and choose "Save Target As" to save in a suitable directory of your choice). It is possible to put almost a complete set on a single standard 700MB CD for listening on portable MP3/CD players. Chapter by chapter versions are also available here.
To download a file instead of playing it--in Windows, right-click on the link, choose Save Target As..., choose a suitable folder location, and Save; in MAC systems, hold down Ctrl and click on the link, choose Download Linked File As..., choose a suitable folder location, and Save. Once saved, a file can be played over and over without downloading it again, and it can also be transferred to an mp3 player or burned to a CD to share with others.
