Reviews - What do customers think about A Hebrew and English Lexicon of the Old Testament?
A wonderful edition of a classic lexicon Mar 19, 2000
This is a great Hebrew lexicon with detailed entries with references to the other semitic languages such as Aramaic, Arabic, Syriac, and Ethiopic. In fact, it even has a biblical Aramaic lexicon as an appendix.
This Oxford edition is much nicer than the Hendrickson one.
Vital scripture study resource. Don't need to know Hebrew! Oct 21, 1998
Why a lexicon? "In the beginning was the WORD." Word usage is enormously helpful to Biblical understanding. H.W.F. Gesenius (mid 1800's) is acclaimed as the Noah Webster of Old Testament Hebrew lexicons (dictionary). He brings to the Old Testament a wonderful blend of Christian/Jewish background and insight. Be sure to note not only the word you are looking up, but also the words that surround it, for they too often lend very interesting and even uncanny insight (divine providence).
