Our Mission

The Institute for Scripture Research (ISR) is an organization registered in South Africa for the purpose of spreading the truth of the Scriptures to the world through its various publications.

Our Vision

Our vision is to faithfully proclaim YHWH and his word throughout the world by means of all our publications. Our primary means though is through the translating, printing and publishing of a literal translation of "The Scriptures" that is as accurate as we can make it.

We have restored the name of the Father and his Messiah while also preserving the Hebraic mind-set of the original writers, to the best of our ability. In so doing we hope that it will shed further light on the understanding of the message of the Scriptures, thereby spiritually enriching the lives of its readers. Such a translation would be subject to on-going revision, as the ISR continues its quest to make it more and more accurate.

To further this end we also offer the public other publications that we believe may be excellent tools in the hands of those who seek for truth (See Publications).

Publications to date include The Scriptures © 1998, 2009 in various formats, (including the 1998 digital edition ©), as well as the well-researched book by Dr. C.J Koster, "Come Out Of Her My People" © 1996, available in various languages.

Hard Cover Edition


The Hard Cover Scriptures is bound in similar Svepa Polyurethane as the Duotone Edition. This new edition of the Hard Cover Scriptures comes packaged in a neat artist designer slipcase, providing additional protection.

Due to popular demand and unforeseen printing delays, we are now offering this Hard Cover Edition of The Scriptures at a significantly reduced price.

The Scriptures, Duotone Editions

We are busy with a reprint of the Duotone edition Scriptures, after selling out due to tremendous popularity. This will be an even larger print-run than when we launched it in 2012.

The reprint stock will be available in the 2nd week of August this year. We apologise for the delay. This will not be a revised edition.

Duotone Edition

Bound in beautiful soft Svepa Polyurethane, with burnished impressions. A choice of two color schemes are on offer.

The material is hard wearing and has a leather look and feel to it. To make it even more attractive, we have packaged it in an artist designer box with transparent window in the form of the ISR logo (scroll). The edges of the publication are in silver, and it comes with three color matching satin book ribbons, which can be tucked in at the Torah, Nevi'im (Prophets) and Ketuvim (Writings).
