Item description for The Englishman's Hebrew Concordance of the Old Testament: Coded with Strong's Concordance Numbers by George V. Wigram & G. V. Wigram...
Overview The Englishman's Hebrew Concordance of the Old Testament gives the reader with no knowledge of Hebrew unprecedented insight into the Hebrew words used by the Old Testament writers. For those who do know Hebrew, Englishman's Hebrew serves as a handy reference for a quick scan of a given Hebrew word's occurrences in the Old Testament. A translation, by nature, is always an interpretation, and the English Bible is no exception. Since no English word carries exactly the same meaning as any one Hebrew word, serious Bible students need to look at the range of occurrences of given Hebrew words, in their biblical contexts, to understand the meaning of the original Hebrew.
This new edition of the standard work "The Englishman's Hebrew Concordance of the Old Testament" is an improved and corrected edition that features a new, larger format. Now coded to "Strong's, " it is invaluable in Bible study for those who do not know Hebrew. A new index of out-of-sequence "Strong's" numbers allows the reader to quickly and easily locate any word by its "Strong's "number. The Hebrew and English indexes have been retained.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Englishman's Hebrew Concordance of Old Testament: Coded with Strong's Concordance Numbers?
Englishman's Hebrew-Greek May 18, 2008
Never received ANY of these books! NONE! Know Excellent!
Post Office cannot find! Bummer!
You can't have one without the other. Jan 21, 2008
To have the Englishman's Hebrew Concordance of the Old Testament without having the Englishman's Greek Concordance of the New Testament would be like having a pepper shaker without its complimentary salt shaker!
Seriously though, I must say this reference book is a necessity for any serious bible scholar. I've given my in-depth opinion on Englishman's counter-part, The Englishman's Greek Concordance of New Testament: Coded with Strong's Concordance Numbers that ought to be just as helpful when considering The Englishman's Hebrew Concordance of the Old Testament.
An Excellent Offering Jan 4, 2008
The reviews had me expecting an inferior quality reference work, but I found it to be perfectly printed and bound. The copy I received was the sixth printing, of April 2006. The scholarship (though finished nearly 175 years ago) is excellent, thorough and easy to use. It is probably the only one of this type that anyone would ever need.
Excellent Reference book Feb 24, 2006
Top notch. Well worth the price. I'm a pastor and I find it an invaluable resource!
one of the most comprehensive concordances out there Dec 10, 2002
For the serious Bible student, this book is an invaluable resource. It is so comprehensive that you probably wouldn't need any other concordances. This book has a few imperfections, though, viz.: 1. the print is relatively small. This is a small problem, though, for many people who can read small print. Not a problem for me. 2. since each entry relies on Strong's numbering, you will need a copy of Strong's concordance, assuming you are like most of us without a prior knowledge of Hebrews. This, too may not be a bad idea; I have Strong's. However, it would have been better to provide a list of Strong's entries in a couple of pages. But for the above, the book deserves five stars. Having said all this, I would still heartily recommend Wigram's Concordance.
