Covenant Family of YAHUWAH Translation Strategies???

On their original home page (10th paragraph down) this claim is made:
"The Original Scripture E1" is translated from the well known but never accurately translated before into English, Codex Leningradensis, from the amazing Ben Asher text for the Old Testament"

My Questions (also repeated at end of sample):
1. What is known about the Codex Leningradensis and Ben Asher text-- Is it a reliable manuscript?
2. Are their translations from the Codex Leningradensis/Ben Asher accurate?
3. Are there any novel, noteworthy or conspicuous strategies that they employed when translating it?
4. Are there any discernible biases when comparing the original text to the translation?

On their other site, they have a sample of the first two chapters of "Bara Esh YA"

And it reads as follows:

"Bara Esh YA

sign name (sn)- I MoshAH, Genesis
“Bara-Esh-YA” is AbraYA (Ab) - for “The Creator of The Explosion is YA…”

I MoshAH 1

1 The Creator of ‘The Explosion’ is YA* (Bara-Esh-YA, ?? ?? ?). The Creator of mankind is YA. The Son of Man is YA. The Prime Mover is YA. He is Eternal Perfection! (Eth, ? ).*2 He is The Almighty and Loving YA of All Creation! He is Almighty Loving YA Creating “His Nation” (EloAH-YA-Im/Am, ??? ? ?).*3 He created the miraculous energies which formed the ShamaYAim (where all creation listens to and is full in YA, the Obedient-Free Universe, the Heavens) and the miraculous energies which formed the Eartz*4 (Bara ath ShamaYAim ath Eartz - ??? ?? ???? ?? ???). 2 Originally the Eartz was (hayah) non-existent (tohuw) and was only emptiness (bohuw).* Complete Darkness (Choshek) covered the place of “The Deep”(Space).*2 Then His RUWach (Most High Beloved Spirit YAUW) of Almighty Loving YA of All Creation began “A Moving” creating the physical face for creation (panaiyim) and Space itself.*3 3 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation called out,* “Let there be AUWra (an explosive radiance of UW)*2 and there was “The Explosion”*3 of light-energy! 4 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation saw The Explosion of the light-energy* and made it orderly. Almighty Loving YA of All Creation separated the light-energy (matter) of space from the dark-energy (antimatter) of space.*2 5 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation continues to accelerate out The Explosion of light-energy into Space from this first “movement of YA” (YAom). The anti-light/energy (antimatter), He called it into “the darkness” (laila). So there was the darkness but then came His Light. This is the first YAom (movement of YA).* 6 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation began calling out (amer), “Let there be radiations from YA* (raqiYA) in the middle of the energies and let there be divisions between the light-energy fusions of one type from the light-energy fusions of another type (the atoms/molecules formed).”* 7 Out of these various light-energies, Almighty Loving YA of All Creation began forming the nebula, the stars and the galaxies and divided these into orbits of large swirling masses (galaxies) within greater swirling masses (galactic clusters)* and so it was. 8 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation called these “the ShamaYAims” (where all creation listen to YA, sn-Heavens). And there was a Darkness and then came His Light. This is the second YAom.
9 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation called out, “Let smaller coalitions around the burning orbits (stars) be gathered together into one place and let planets come forth,”* and so it became.
10 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation called our planet “Eartz”* and he gathered together a “mist”*2 around it in which he began calling out (creating) “the the first living things.”*3 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation began making upon the Eartz amazing miracles of life.
11 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation called out, “Let the Eartz put forth abundant green life (the creation of photosynthesis resulting in free oxygen)*, then herbs yielding seed,*2 then fruit trees bearing fruit after their
kind,*3 with its seed (DNA) in it to spread across the Eartz and it became so.
12 The Eartz brought forth green life and then herbs yielding seed after their kind and trees bearing fruit, with its seed in it, after their kind and Almighty Loving YA of All Creation saw that it was good.
13 So there was the Darkness and then came The Light. This is the third YAom.
14 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation called out, ”Let there be a radiating light (maour) of YA’s radiation (raqiYA)* shining from space to divide the days and nights which shall be for marking your time (outh); that is for marking your Set Worship Times (Moued- the Sabbath, the Feast Days, Sabbath and Jubilee weeks-III MoshAH/Lev 23, ChanUWk 72), your days and your years.
15 Let it provide this light-energy of the ShamaYAim needed for life on the Eartz. It became so.
16 Likewise, Almighty Loving YA of All Creation made two realms of The Light:
First 1) “The Great-Light Carriers” (Heavenly Armies of the ShamaYAims; KarUWbs, MalakiYA -Angels of YA, Arch-MalakiYA, CherYAbims and SerAHphims) to direct the People of YA (YA Am)!
Secondly 2) He also made “a Counter-Light Carriers” to rule as “The Darkness” (Laila, Shatan, Darkness, his fallen angels, arch-demons and demons). They will be the challengers as contrast to The Great-Light of YA’s Perfect Eternal Love for you!
17 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation set these in the universe to illuminate a great path to The Light of YAHUW (AUWra) for those who seek Him;
18 to create in them The People of YA (YA Am), to over-rule the Counter-Light Adversaries (the Darkness, Shatan, the demons) and to guard The Great-Light (The Word of YAH, The Witness) from being hidden by The Darkness. Almighty Loving YA of All Creation saw that it was good for making “The Family of YA.”
19 So there was The Darkness and then came His Light. This was a fourth YAom (movement of YA).
20 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation called out "Let the waters be filled with swarms of living creatures* and let reptiles* fly above the Eartz in the open expanse of the sky."
21 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation created a great number of large beasts (dinosaurs)* and some of these creatures stalked prey and some lived in the waters.* Each reproduced after their kind and every skin-winged reptile (Pterodactyls, bats, etc) reproduced after its kind. Almighty Loving YA of All Creation saw to it that it was truly marvelous for making sons and daughters of YA!
22 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation blessed them saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters* and the seas*2 and let the reptiles (lizards, skin-winged-birds, dinosaurs, behemoths, etc)*3 multiply over the Eartz."
23 Then there was a Darkness and then came His Light. This was the fifth YAom.
24 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation called out, “Let the Eartz bring forth an abundance of living creatures after their kind, behemoths, swift runners and great herds of animals over the Eartz, each after their kind" (the mammals)* and so it was.
25 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation made the animals* of the Eartz after their kind and the livestock*2 after their kind and everything that moves on the ground after its kind. Almighty Loving YA of All Creation saw that it was truly marvelous!

(5997-5500 years ago in AHden)
26 Almighty Loving YA Creating His People called out (amer),
(The First Five Instructions/Words from YA to all Mankind)
(The First Word)
“Let all mankind (adam) seek to be like their Creator so as to become My Blood-Covenant Family (“DamUW-Ach” ???? ).
(The Second Word)
Let My People be formed by establishing responsible rule over all creatures, over all the seas, over all the animals, over all the skies, over their breeding, over all the land and over everything that moves on the Eartz!"
(The Third Word)
27 Almighty Loving YA Creating His People created mankind to be like Himself; therefore seek to be like Almighty Loving YA of All Creation as young men and young women!
28 Almighty Loving YA Creating His People has blessed you with the potential to be like Him through His QadUWsha (Set Apart, Holy) Word and through His QadUWsha Name: “YAHUWAH!”*
(The Fourth Word)
Again, He commanded them, “Study how to make the land productive. Study how to rightly own it (work for it, finance it, buy it, protect it and retain it). Then take ownership of it and make it productive (make it ‘fruitful’)! Then duplicate this over and over, responsibly ruling the Eartz as you do this.*2
(The Fifth Word)
Take responsibility of both yourself and My Eartz! A) Concerning the Eartz, protect the air, the land, the oceans and seas, the animals, the fresh water, and all living things! Protect every living thing that moves both in the skies above and those upon the Eartz itself!"*3
29 B) Then Almighty Loving YA of All Creation commanded them, “Listen especially to this for yourselves! I have given you every herb yielding seed which is on the surface of the Eartz and every tree which bears fruit yielding seed to eat. This is to be your primary food.
30 Every animal of the Eartz, every bird of the sky, everything that walks on the Eartz and every green herb in which there is strength for your life, all these I have also given to you for food." And so it is.
31 Almighty Loving YA of All Creation saw everything that He had made and study this; it was truly magnificent! And there was a Darkness and then came His Light. This is the sixth YAom (movement of YA).


Bara-Esh-YA (The Creator of ‘The Explosion’ is YA) sn-Genesis

I MoshAH 2

1 And so the creation of the ShamaYAims and the Eartz were finished with all their vast magnificence. 2 In the Sabbath (seventh) “movement of YA” (YAom), Almighty Loving YA of All Creation finished His work of creating and He rested in this Sabbath YAom from all His creating which He had done. 3 Therefore, Almighty Loving YA of All Creation blessed the Sabbath day and made it QadUWsha (set apart by YAHUWAH for salvation)* because He rested in it from His work of creation. 4 The Meaning behind the creation of the powers which created the universe and of the powers which created the Eartz is the purpose of the creation itself. For before the eras that YAHUWAH, Almighty Loving YA of All Creation, began creating the beloved Eartz, He had already created His beloved Heavens (ShamaYAims, a super-physical magnificent eternal realm where all love and worship YAHUWAH). The purpose was to fill these Heavens with a Family like Himself. That is why He created mankind and the Eartz. 5 Now back when no green life (plant photosynthesis) of the field was yet on the Eartz and not even a blade of the grass of the field had sprung up, for YAHUWAH, Almighty YA of All Creation, had not yet released His “Life Power”* on the Eartz. Therefore, neither was there an AHdam (a man of YAH) who knew how to work the lands of YAH. 6 YAHUWAH sent a “water-mist” which went up from the Eartz and thus continuously watered the whole surface of the ground. 7 YAHUWAH Almighty Loving YA of All Creation formed adam (natural man) from the dust of the ‘land of YAH” (adamAH) and then He breathed into his nostrils The RUWach (Spirit of YAHUWAH, the “breath of YAHUW”) of Life and he became an AHdam (a man of YAH)!”
8 YAHUWAH Almighty Loving YA of All Creation planted a garden in the East, in AHden (YAH’s delight) and there he put AHdam, whom he had formed.
9 Out of His ground, YAHUWAH, El YA of All Creation, made every tree to grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. He also placed the ‘Tree of Knowing The Source of Life’ in the middle of the garden and also the ‘Tree of Knowing Evil Over Good (love always contains the freedom of choice).’
10 A river went into AHden to water the garden and from there it joined and became one with four separate rivers.
11 The name of the first is PishUWn. This one flows throughout the whole land of Ku-YA-ELAH (where ‘YA-ELAH’ is called out- Kuwait, YAraq, YAran, ArabiYA, BAHrain, UAE, MitseriYA, LibiYA, TunisiYA, SuDan, NigeriYA, AngolAH).* “It is a type of ‘gold,’
12 and this ‘gold’ of that land is of good quality. It is an oil for fire and it is black like onyx (black gold)!
13 The name of the second river is GiYAHn (sn- Nile), the same river that flows through the whole land of CUWsh (originally all of AfriYAca, MitseriYA, EthiopiYA, SuDAHn, KenYA, UgandAH, ZambiYA, GhanAH, TanzaniYA, MalawiYA, ShonAH, AngolAH even to South AfriYAca).
14 The name of the third river is ChiYAdekel (Life is in YA, Almighty El” sn-Tigris), this is the one which flows through AssyriYA. The fourth river is the EuphrAHz (Blessed are the Beloved of YAH,” sn-Parath, sn-Euphrates).
15 YAHUWAH, Almighty Loving YA of All Creation (Eloah YA Im), took the man of YAH (AHdam) and put him into the garden of AHden to cultivate it.
16 YAHUWAH, Almighty Loving YA of All Creation commanded the man of YAH saying, “Of every ‘Fruit in the garden,’ freely eat,
17 but of The Fruit of Evil Over Good, you shall not eat of it, for in the day that you eat of it, you will spiritually die."
18 YAHUWAH, Almighty Loving YA of All Creation called out, “It is not good that the man of YAH (AHdam) should be alone! Therefore I will make a soulmate who will be a delight to him!"
19 So out of the natural order YAHUWAH, Almighty Loving YA of All Creation molded every animal of the field and every reptile of the sky and brought them to the man of YAH (AHdam), to see what he would “call them.” Whatever the man of YAH called every living creature, that was its name.
20 AHdam gave names to all creatures and to the reptiles of the sky and to every animal of the field (over 100 million species), but for the man of YAH (AHdam), there was not found an ishAH, a soulmate for him.
21 So YAHUWAH, Almighty Loving YA of All Creation caused a deep sleep to fall on the man of YAH and as he slept, he reached “under his ribs into his heart,”* and He molded ishAH (Beloved Woman of YAH) out of AHdam’s heart.*
22 YAHUWAH, Almighty Loving YA of All Creation created ishAH out of His Echad (Spirit, Love, Oneness) from the heart of the man of YAH and brought her to the man of YAH (AHdam).
23 AHdam said, “AHleleUW-YAH (Praise be to YAH)!” She is the missing part of my echad (oneness, completeness)! Truly she is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. She completes me! She will be called ‘IshAH’ because she was taken out of YAish (YA’s Covenant-Man).
24 Therefore AHdam (the Covenant man of YAH), will leave his father’s and his mother’s Covenant-house and will join with his ishAH that they might be ‘echad’ (completely one).
25 They were both transparent*, AHdam and his ishAH, and they were in neither fear nor confusion!"


My Questions:
1. What is known about the Codex Leningradensis and Ben Asher text-- Is it a reliable manuscript?
2. Are their translations from the Codex Leningradensis/Ben Asher accurate?
3. Are there any novel, noteworthy or conspicuous strategies that they employed when translating it?
4. Are there any discernible biases when comparing the original text to the translation?

The Leningradensis is fancy for "The Leningrad Codex" which is simply the oldest manuscript of the Masoretic Text (which itself dates only to the middle ages).

From the intro to the HRV Scriptures:

Between the years 500 and 950 C.E., a group of Rabbinic Jewish traditionalists known
as “Masorites”, standardized the Hebrew text of the Tanak and added written vowels
to the text (ancient Hebrew has no written vowels). This standardization of the text
resulted in a single text, with little or no variant readings from manuscript to
manuscript. There are slight differences between the earliest Masoretic Text
manuscripts. Toward the end of the Masoretic era, the last two Masoretic families
(Ben Asher and Ben Naphtali) finalized two slightly different Masoretic Texts. Most
printed editions today use the Ben Asher text as their source.

So when they refer to the "Ben Asher" text and Codex Leningradensis all it really means is "The Masoretic Text", that is the standard Hebrew text in use today.
I meant:

3. Does the Covenanat Family of Yahuwah use any novel, noteworthy or conspicuous strategies in their own translation?

4. When comparing the Masoretic text to the CFY translation, are there any discernible biases on the part of the CFY?
