This is a great question, Murray, because I have been looking for just such a book. I have a Hebrew Bible, or at least I can access a Hebrew Bible anytime I want, but no English version to go right along with it. I am going to try to get one. (I already have the RVR 1960/KJV Bilingual Bible -- that's the one with Spanish and English versions side by side).

A bilingual Bible, Spanish and English, that combines the elegance of the Reina Valera 1960 with the poetic beauty of the King James.

The Israel Bible is a bilingual English-Hebrew version of the Hebrew Bible, edited by Rabbi Tuly Weisz and published in June 2018, for the 70th anniversary of the Israeli Declaration of Independence. It contains the full text of the Hebrew Bible along with scholarly introductions to each book of the Bible and various maps, charts, illustrations, and photographs. Weisz says that his bible is the only one "exclusively dedicated to the Land of Israel, the people of Israel and the God of Israel". The commentary, by a team of Orthodox rabbis, draws a strong connection between biblical Israel and the modern State of Israel. The book is aimed at both Jews and Christians. --Wikipedia
