Free Hebrew Bible Download & English Translation

Many times people ask me where to get a free download of the Hebrew Bible with English translation. Depending on your reading preferences, there are many ways to start reading the original text, whether at your desktop computer or on tablets, smartphones and ereading devices.

Free Online Hebrew Bible

One of the quickest ways to start reading the original Hebrew text along with its English translation is to take a look at an online edition in your browser. A very solid and comprehensive edition can be found at, offering five different versions, completely free. You can either read the original Bible text in Hebrew, the parallel Hebrew and English or French edition, Arameic and Tiqqun Qore’im.

This Bible resource is a great way to start reading and learning the original Biblical language. Not only are there audio files for each chapter to check your pronunciation, all editions are also offered as a free download. Just take a look at the homepage under “offline resources” to find the correct download.

Free PDF Hebrew Bible Ebook

While an online or offline edition might be great for quick browsing and research, for those who prefer a more book-like experience (and don’t want to add another block of paper to their library) should consider a download in PDF format.

The Wellesley College Library on for example offers a variety of free editions for download which are scans based on original books.

Biblia Hebraica (1905) [5 books of Moses, Joshua, Judges, Kings I-II]

Hebrew Bible (1882) [Book of Psalms]

Since these books are very old the latin introduction and footnotes will not make much sense to contemporary readers but the original text is authentically represented. These scans are available in a few different download formats from PDF to EBOOK and MOBI for reading on your Kindle, Nook, iPad, etc.

Free Hebrew Bible App

Talking about mobile devices, there also a number of apps to read and study on the go. Not all of them are free, but there are some solid freebie editions available for download, as well.

The Torah Bible Pentateuch for iPad  [5 Books of Moses]

While this app is great for browsing and searching the original Hebrew text, it doesn’t come with a translation. For more in-depth comparative reading with English translation we took a look at the following app and where positively surprised:

Bible Study With Accordance [parallel English-Hebrew, free Hebrew dictionary]

Got an Android phone or tablet? There are a number of apps on the Google Play store available as free download, for example:

      Hi i am a pastor and i just want everyone to know that God is not about religion but about Jesus Christ himself. It Only mentions religion in the Bible Once or twice in the whole book. I know i read the whole bible from cover to Cover. God came to earth as a person from the holy spirit through Mary as a person to show people the powers he Had in healing, love, correctness, and discipline and many more things that we needed in life changing ways. And That is why the word Bible means Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. God bless you all. Pastor Maurice Slaunwhite.

  • Thomas Doboyou

    I am Thomas Doboyou from Liberia, I want to be converted into Judaism. But how can I be converted ? I’m living in a country where this wonderful religion is not found easily.

    • Laura Ann Register

      This might not be of much help, but pray about and ask Yah Weh to show you how and the easiest ans safest way of doing it. I have one question though? Is it Orthodox Judaism you want or Messianc Judaism? The reason why I am asking you this is because there is such a BIG difference between the 2 unfortunately. I will be praying for you my He-chever sheil.(My friend in Hebrew)

      • Thomas Doboyou

        I’m always praying to be a converted Orthodox Jew

  • Laura Ann Register

    There are several easy and free ways to learn Hebrew and how to get the Bibles(Tenach and Brit Chadesh) Old Testament and New Testament. There is a free site called Hebrew 4 Christians and Messianic Bible Society, which I myself have found to be very helpful in learning Hebrew and how to read, write and speak Hebrew as well as how to read the Torah. If this has been of any help to any of you Please let me know, and I will be praying for all of you as well. Also, you can order a book that was written by Zola Levitt on the Hebrew4Christians website that will be of great help.
