Early Jewish Writings (Peter Kirby)

Peter Kirby’s website Early Jewish Writings provides online translations and short commentary for many texts, including Hebrew Bible/Old Testament texts, other early Jewish texts, Philo, Josephus, and the Talmud.

The online translations are, in the main, older and out-of-copyright (yet still very useful) renditions, and the website provides references for newer translations which are available offline.
