Item description for A Concise Lexicon to the Biblical Languages by Jay Patrick Green, Sr. & Maurice Dr Robinson...
Now for the first time the Bible students will have a lexicon/dictionary with every one of the original 8,674 Hebrew words, and also every one of the 5,624 Greek words of the Scriptures included in it.. For ninety-five out of the hundred times the Bible student, preacher, Bible class teacher, or the host of God's saints who study to show themselves workmen unashamed (2 Tim. 2:15), this quick reference, easy-to-use lexicon is a jewel. You will literally wear it out, using it weekly, if not daily. The words are alphabetical in order. This is important with the Hebrew words in particular. For the most used Hebrew lexicon is the Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew-Aramaic Lexicon. And one must know the root word to look up Hebrew entries in that lexicon, or else they must have a multi-paged index to it. This brief lexicon can even be used instead of the Brown-Driver Briggs Lexicon in most cases when anyone desires a quick reference to the grammatical construction and the meaning of a word. For the fact is, this lexicon is an abbreviated edition of the Brown-Driver Briggs Lexicon, most of the information coming from that great work. Yet this little lexicon contains more information than can be found in B-D-B. Proper names appear in alphabetical order, often with their meanings. Derivation of words is given. More grammatical information is given than is in the larger lexicon. The Greek section also provides coding to Strong's Exhaustive Concordance, and it gives page references to Thayer's Greek-English Lexicon, Arndt-Gingrich Greek-English Lexicon, and, Kittel's Theological Dictionary. The reader will learn to appreciate these quick and easy references by use of the Arabic numbers in numerical order, coupled with the original language. This handy, quick study tool will revolutionize study of the Bible, saving a multitude of hours of study, yet providing comprehensive information not available in any other existing volume. The savings in time alone is enough to recommend this handy little lexicon. The fact that it contains both the Hebrew-Aramaic words and the Greek words in a single easy-to-access volume is a time-saver not to be found in any other book (it appears that no previous book has contained both the 8,674 Hebrew words and the 5,624 Greek words, with their meanings, and other items of information, which the student of either language can use with ease.) Maurice A. Robinson (PhD) is Associate Professor of Greek at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, South Carolina. Jay P. Green, Sr. (1918-) is Translator and Editor of The Interlinear Hebrew-Greek-English Bible and the translator of the Modern King James Version of the Holy Bible, the Teenage Version of the Holy Bible, the Literal translation of the Holy Bible and the KJ3-Literal Translation Bible. He has written numerous books on textual criticism.

More About Jay Patrick Green, Sr. & Maurice Dr Robinson

He went on to produce a large number of translations of the Bible into English, some revised multiple times, including The Interlinear Hebrew-Greek-English Bible, in One-Volume. He once described himself as "the most experienced Bible translator now alive".
He died in Lafayette, Indiana, in 2008.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Concise Lexicon to the Biblical Languages?
A basic lexicon Dec 28, 2007
This book is a very basic lexicon for both Hebrew and Greek. The words are all coded to Strong's Concordance numbers. So this book is good for those who do not know Hebrew and Greek. You can find the Strong's number for a word by using his concordance or by using Green's Interlinear Bible. You can then use that number to look up the underlying Hebrew or Greek word with this lexicon.
The format is to first give Strong's number, then the Hebrew or Greek word, then the basic definition(s), and a couple of verse references where the word is found. The definitions and looking up the verses make for a basic word study and will give you some feel for the meaning or range of meanings for the word. Page numbers for where the word can be found in more detailed lexicons are also given, so more in-depth word study can be pursued.
I bought this book years ago, after getting Green's Interlinear. And the use of these two volumes introduced me to the original languages and how fruitful word studies can be. But this book is just that, a very basic introduction to the original languages. If they inspire you to attain more in-depth lexicons or even to learn Hebrew and Greek, as they did me, then this book is worthwhile.
So I am glad that I got this book when I did. But given how basic it is, it was of little use to me as I worked on my Analytical-Literal Translation of the New Testament: Third Edition (ALT). But for an introduction, it is worthwhile.
Very handy if you know Greek & Hebrew Aug 18, 2007
My Hebrew tutor turned me on to this book. It is really good. It's concise, covers the Greek and Hebrew, and very easy to use. Included are Strongs and BDB codes with page numbers for the larger lexicons. So if a lexicon has a long entry this tool gives you the part of the entry to go to, a nice time saver.
I'm a big fan of BibleWorks 7,0, which has all of these things digitally sortable, but for a manual option, this book at only $12 is a great deal and small enough to carry next to your bible!
It's a wonderful idea and I heartily recommend it.
