The Hebrew word eth (את) means divine, and the Hebrew word cepher (ספר) means book, scroll, letter or writing. Hence, the את CEPHER is the “Divine Book”. This complete collection of sacred scripture restores much of what has been removed and/or incorrectly interpreted in the Bible for centuries!
• Sets forth a translation, rather than a substitution of the names of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
• Transliterates over 3,100 other Hebrew names and places without substitution.
• Omitted in other translations, the את has been restored over 10,000 times.
• Includes all of the 74 previously canonized books, plus another 13 books considered to be inspired and/or historically significant such as Chanok (Enoch) & Yovheliym (Jubilees) from the Dead Sea Scrolls, as well as Yashar (Jasher), 2-4 Ezra (Esdras), 1-2 Baruk, and 1-4 Makkabiym (Maccabees) – all published in the chronological order of their writing.
• Corrects the errors (for the first time) in Shiyr HaShiriym (Song of Solomon), Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 14, Zakaryahu (Zechariah) 5, Mattithyahu (Matthew) 23, and corrects several other notorious errors found in virtually all previous English translations.
• Restores the 29th chapter of the Acts of the Apostles chronicling Paul’s journey to Spain.
The Cepher App allows you to easily search the scriptures by keyword, book, chapter or verse and is loaded with extra features, including:
• Note-taking capability with sorting.
• Highlighting available in seven different colors.
• A Lexicon of all the transliterated Hebrew words found in the את CEPHER.
• The Daily Hebrew Prayer.
• Links to our Weekly Torah Portion, Dr. Stephen Pidgeon’s blog, articles and other free downloads available our website.

A true blessing to read
It’s a blessing that the people over at CEPHER publishing work so hard to give us this translation. I understand what others say about the functionality of this app compared to other bible apps; but the message that is delivered within the CEPHER should far surpass any kind personal problems that people have with the functions of the app itself. I’m sure as time goes on, the developers will add updates to address people’s “ease of reading” issues, but we should put our focus into the message being delivered to use and not into how “easily” we can get it delivered to us. Thank you very much, everyone at CEPHER publishing, for all the work you have put into translating and making an app for modern day reading. I hope to save enough one day to purchase a hard copy of the CEPHER, but am very pleased nonetheless with the purchase of your app. Many blessings to you all and I look forward to what you guys will put out in the future. Shalom
App no longer producing text and not accessible
I have been using the app for almost a year, I use Voice Over with the iPhone to read text; the app no longer produces text after selecting a book and chapter; I also sent a email to your company via the contact link on their web site, this is a expensive app, great when it worked! iPhone X *Update: this app still does not let anyone who uses voice over with the iPhone X or the updated iOS to use the app or listen to/read any of the content with in this app. It would be great if you guys actually read the comment section here, this app should be universally accessible to anyone whether they have a disability or not, please, learn what accessibility means and implemented for everyone, we really appreciate it… This is godly…
This is probably due to the changes in the IPhone X. Have you tried to upgrade the IOS.
***Update*** Excellent Resource!!
Initially, I thought the price for this resource was high, but as I have used it for many months, I realize how important and priceless the CEPHER is. I found myself coming back to it alongside other translations and have often preferred it. After regular usage, many of the names are now easier to recall, but the meanings are what heighten the clarification of right many difficult passages.
I purchased a hard copy of the 3rd edition of the CEPHER not long after being introduced to the app. I am quite impressed with it (the paper is amazing by the way), but I quickly saw how much I underestimated this app’s functionality and value. I still use both and have even purchased a hard copy of the lexicon.
The minor issues I had are next to non-existent now, so they are no longer even worth mentioning. I do, however, look forward to the implementation of audio and will gladly update this review to 5 stars upon its implementation.
Thank you CEPHER publishing for your diligence; I am truly appreciative of the work that has gone into this project of recovery.
Brian, we are planning on adding functionality. The big one is audio. When we add this, could change your rating to 5 stars? We will add to the functionality of the Lexicon as well when time permits. We are a very small company.
