Reviews - What do customers think about The Hebrew-English Concordance to the Old Testament?
Serious scholarship for the serious Bible scholar May 11, 2002
An essential tool for the Biblical reader who has some knowledge of Hebrew, but not enough for the all-Hebrew Even-Shoshan Old Testament concordance. As an example of its usefulness, the seven Hebrew words translated "praise" in the King James version can be easily traced individually, and understood thoroughly. The frequency of appearance is clearly marked, in all of its forms, making HEC tremendously valuable as Strong's requires the scholar to do a lot of counting over various forms of the word. Again, an example shows that _hll_ or _halal_ appears 89 times as praise, or praised, or praises, etc. Each of these forms would have to be counted individually in Strong's. The same holds true for the other words for praise, namely, tehilla, yadah, zamar, shabach, todah, and barak.
A previous reviewer has mentioned disdain for the name of God. This is simply not the case. The tretragrammaton, YHWH, has been transmitted over centuries as the LORD because the name of God is SO REVERED. This is a convention of the KJV, RSV, NIV, and any other version of the Bible this reviewer has ever seen.
A very helpful index based on the English of the New International Version of the Bible is included. The citations of verses within the concordance is based on the NIV - users of other translations only need to turn to the passages in their own Bibles to get the exact English word with which they will be most familiar.
The only limitation this reviewer found to Kohlenberger's fine work is that his numbers are not keyed to Strong's.
All in all, this is an essential tool I am pleased to have at my disposal.
Very good. Sep 16, 2000
I enjoyed this very much. It shows you exactly how many times the word appears in the NIV and KJV and how it looks in the original Hebrew/Aramaic. Exhaustive doesn't even begin to describe this book. The only problem with this book is the blatent disregard for the Divine Name, Yahweh, which is just translated as "the LORD." Nevertheless, it is an important part of any Bible reader's library.
I originally thought this was an interlinear, so don't make my mistake.
Beyond Excellent Apr 17, 2000
This book provides a whole new perspective to the Old Testament. It shows the real words of God before they were translated. If you enjoy reading God's word and don't hard reading this book is for your. I highly reccomend for people who have a strong knowledge on the Bible.
