Samaritan Pentateuch

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links
The canon or “Bible” of the Samaritans, who revere the Torah as God's revelation to Moses on Mount Sinai and do not regard the rest of the Hebrew Bible as canon. The Samaritans regarded themselves as the true heirs (as versus Judahites) to the Mosaic tradition. Their scripture includes Genesis through Deuteronomy with many variant readings from the Masoretic Text or Hebrew text currently used by scholars. See Bible, Texts and Versions ; Samaria.
