I have LITV, YLT, NASB, Transparent Version, The Five Books of Moses by E. Fox and The Hebrew Bible by Robert Alter. None of these are literal enough. I am looking for some translation that has been taken to the absurd level of literalness. I don’t mind if it is just for one chapter or one book, although the complete Hebrew Bible would be ideal. Can someone recommend something more literal than these I have listed? I suppose that what I am looking for is an interlinear type literalness but with English (or Spanish would work just as well) word flow. So that, for example, “מִתַּ֤חַת הַשָּׁמַ֙יִם֙” would be rendered “from under the heavens” rather than “under the heavens.”
KJ3 Literal Translation Jay P Green Sr SGPBooks.com, Inc Very good literal translation that stays as faithful to the grammatical structure as possible. Participle verbs usually have an -ing ending, infinitives usually are structure with a preceding "to". Makes a beginning grammatical evaluation of the original language possible if all you know is English. They also produce an interlinear for both Old and New Testaments.
