The Hebrew Bible is a term is used to refer to the Tanakh, which consists of Torah, Neviim (Prophets), and Ketuvim (Writings), the canonical collection of Jewish texts. These texts are composed mainly in Biblical Hebrew, with some passages in Biblical Aramaic. The books that constitute the Hebrew Bible developed over roughly a millennium. The oldest texts seem to come from the eleventh or tenth centuries BCE, whilst most of the other texts are somewhat later. They are edited works, being collections of various sources intricately and carefully woven together. These texts are those that have been considered holy within Judaism and have significantly contributed to how Jews understand their history and live Jewishly.
