Institute for Biblical Languages and Translation

Serving Bible Translators, Consultants & Teachers

The goal of the Institute is for sufficient consultants, teachers & mother-tongue translators to be trained in Biblical Hebrew so that Old Testament translation can begin in every language by 2033.

To reach the whole World with the whole Word, we urgently need enough translators and consultants trained in biblical Hebrew.

The Institute for Biblical Languages & Translation (IBLT) is a program of 4.2.20 Foundation. IBLT supports and resources existing Bible translation initiatives as a learning and research center, training mother-tongue translators in biblical Hebrew and native Hebrew speakers as translation consultants.

The Institute is working strategically to accelerate the training process without loss of quality, drawing from both the expertise of premier institutions and programs and the unique context and culture of the Holy Land.
