While Accordance has the Samaritan Pentateuch in Hebrew, it would be nice to have an accompanying English translation. Here's one:

I have this as a User Bible in Accordance already.  Send me a private message with your email address and I will share.  The versification isn't 100% perfect, as it is extremely tricky to match up precisely.  But it works very well overall.

 

The copyright info I have on it states the following (from BibleWorks, where I believe I originally got the text), so I feel free to share.

Since it wasn't clear to me at first, I want to point out that mgvh is referring to two different translations: The Israelite Samaritan Version of the Torah was translated by Benyamim Tsedaka, while the version found in eSword, BibleWorks, Tyndale House's STEP, and perhaps elsewhere is by Aleksandr Sigalov. The latter is done in the style of the KJV to facilitate comparison.

The Israelite Samaritan Version of the Torah was translated by Benyamim Tsedaka

 

Thanks for the correction / clarification jlm.  On that note, I would also be happy to have more translations such as this one above.

I would love to have the one in mgvh’s first post. Note Abegg’s recommendation:

"More than simply a translation, this is a document infused with the unique culture of the Israelite-Samaritans as no other English translation could be. . . Truly an historic piece of literature."
