To all be blessed!

With unsteady fingers and a gripping fear that I may tread on some toes I write on this topic.

First I would do good to get a interpetation and then focus my comments within those bounds.

In the vast arena of knowledge one can easily make an error in ones interpretation of the actual events that prompted the words that God has spoken, which is the Bible.

Are their oher translations that include and some exclue what is truly a complete revelation of God's purpose.

A discovery of common thread/s in all text I believe in all the world religions may help to solidify the purpose that we must all undertake.

Can we do this without controversy?

Can someone direct me to a exact,excepted interpretation of the Torah spoken to the Israelites from Moses?

Are you asking about the Oral Torah?

Rabbinic tradition holds that the written Torah was transmitted in parallel with the oral tradition. Jews point to texts of the Torah, where many words and concepts are left undefined and many procedures are mentioned without explanation or instructions; the reader is required to seek out the missing details from the oral sources. Many times in the Torah it says that/as you are/were shown on the mountain in reference of how to do a commandment (Exodus 25:40).
