Reviews

"A bold new English translation"-Adam Kirsch, Wall Street Journal
"Greenstein's Job offers the rarest combination of talents: a philologist's determination to hunt down the meaning of every word and a poetic delight in language and making the text sing."-James Kugel
"A masterful translation, new, bold, and often startling, by one of the great masters of this masterpiece of world literature. Greenstein's Job offers authoritative guidance to a book whose profundities and conundrums continue to challenge."-Peter Machinist, Harvard University
"Grounded in deep literary sensitivity and decades of meticulous philological scholarship, Greenstein's translation of Job brings us closer to the sublime text and uncompromising spirit of this great and challenging biblical book than anyone has previously done."-Everett Fox, Clark University
"A singular achievement by one of the foremost Biblical linguists, who deftly renders the rhetorical and verbal genius of 'Job'. The translation speaks to the contemporary ear while retaining the original's sinewy structure."-Michael Fishbane, University of Chicago
"An immense pleasure for the reader, this novel translation recreates the flavor of the ancient Hebrew poetical text in its original setting. It is perhaps the first Job translation to free itself from traditional interpretations and it reflects the author's decades of thorough research."-Emanuel Tov, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
