First published over thirty years ago under the title A Student's Vocabulary of Biblical Hebrew, this classic work has been completely revised, updated, and expanded by the author to assist a new generation of students in developing a basic Biblical Hebrew vocabulary. Designed with beginning Hebrew readers in mind, this valuable teaching tool shows which words occur most frequently in the Hebrew Bible and, where possible, arranges those words into meaningful groups according to their roots and cognates. Vocabularies have been kept to a manageable size, extensive cross-references document when words appear frequently with different meanings, and an index allows rapid location of every word encountered.Careful study of this volume will be richly rewarded as students:- quickly learn the most commonly occurring words in the Hebrew Bible,- naturally expand their working vocabulary of related words, and- consistently observe how Hebrew characteristically builds upon verbal roots.As a result, students who master this volume will remember words more easily, consult a lexicon less frequently but more intelligently, and translate the Hebrew Bible at sight more readily and enjoyably.
