comment Which 'modern' English translation of the Bible is considered the 'closest' or most accurate translation?
Of all the translations I've come across, The Schocken Bible by Everett Fox is the most interesting one. It tries to not only be super-literal, but also to keep the "feel" and rhythm of the original Hebrew. amazon.com/The-Five-Books-Moses-Deuteronomy/dp/0805211195

comment Was nûn deleted from Psalm 145 in the Masoretic Text?
Support for the interpolation approach is based on the fact that the Nun line is nearly identical to verse 17 (צ). See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psalm_145#The_.22Missing_Verse.22 for details.
