Actually you cant get one English translation as both the Greek and Hebrew texts must be treated with respect in their own right â€“ and the differences between them should not be harmonized. ï¿½We have two traditions before us â€“ thus we will end up with two English versions.
I would like to see the two English versions in parallel columns.
I don't know of anythng in existence like that.

- James, I think in this case, the translators' note was not adhering to the
technical definition of "family." The various versions of Tobit fall into
essentially two large groups, representing two literary versions of Tobit:
that of Sinaiticus representing the longer OL/NRSV text, and that of
Vaticanus and Alexandrinus representing the shorter Vulgate/RSV text. I
suppose "Sinaiticus family" is, though technically incorrect, colloquially
understood to reflect just that distinction.
