<Bible, English, King James, According to the documentary hypothesis

According to the documentary hypothesis, the Torah is composed from a number of originally independant sources joined by a redactor. One of these supposed sources is named the "Priestly source", due to the considerable prevelance of material within it that would concern a priest.

There follows the reconstructed text of the Priestly Source, using the King James Translation of the Torah.

Due simply to its size, it has been divided into 4 divisions of approximately similar size, for the purposes of easy downloading. These divisions do not knowingly reflect the content of the text, or the original divisions, in any way.
