What is it?

The Cantillation Marks interactive resource makes it easy for users to identify the breaks in each line of the Hebrew text. In addition to accents marks, the Masoretic Text of the Hebrew Bible includes special marks that separate the major units of each line in the Hebrew Bible. The marks identify disjunctives (separations between words) and conjunctives (the joining of two words). The disjunctive markers divide the line into phrases, signaling what words should be read together and separate.

In short, Cantillation marks group together the Hebrew text, so whether you’re reading the text aloud or to yourself, you’ll see how words and phrases fit together.

How does it work?

Dear John

When I open this tool and typing in “Psalm 1” I get the message:

“Sorry, this tool doesn't yet support poetic marks. Additional information on Hebrew cantillation marks can be found at

 When I try it with a non-poetical book, then appears a sign that indicates that something is working but nothing appears on the screen …

 With greetings from Austria

Thank you Jonathan J Watson,

This looks like a beautiful and useful resource ! But, 

BKMitchell: question now is: Is, it yet possible to search on combinations of accents without specifying what word they fall on. So, for example I wanted to search for every place in the Hebrew Bible where: the accent pattern is Yetiv followed by Pashtat ...

Is that now possible? and if not; Will, it ever be possible?

No matter what I type in the box it does not seem to move from the default screen.

And I'm just about to post the first bug reportSmile But it is much better.

A suggestion:

The bug:

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I can see this, is it the bar view or the box view?

Hello, Jonathan - is there any way to access the "Box" and "Bar" views anymore?

These two erstwhile "perspectives" had allowed us to view the cantillations both vertically and horizontally in order to "see" the significance or weight given in the verse to the words and phrases. With the new version, this "stereo" capability is now gone.

This is a very old post, but I am looking for the same answer.  Have we lost the "bar" view?
