    Abstract:
    For almost 200 years scholars have recognized that most of the Pentateuch can be clearly divided into two separate, but interwoven literary works.. These are the Priestly and non-Priestly traditions, with the Priestly forming a clear and continuous whole and the Non-Priestly the main area of debate. Despite this, there has been no way to simply read these foundational and widely-discussed texts; they have to be deciphered from parallel or interlinear reconstructions. As part of the Pentateuch.digital project, we have created the first open-access version of these texts. The Priestly text is available at the pentateuch.digital website, and we here make available the first of our edition of the Non-Priestly traditions, the Book of Genesis, based on the JPS translation.
