Here is an interesting approach to translation, capturing the experience of the Hebrew language in terms of cadence (rhythm) and sound as read aloud. Repetition, allusion, alliteration, and wordplay. This is a very different approach from most modern translations which seek to translate the text into readily accessible, modern english.
