Item description for Old Testament Parsing Guide: Revised and Updated Edition by Todd S. Beall, Colin S. Smith & William A. Banks...
Overview Featuring a verse-by-verse parsing aid for every verb in the Old Testament and newly added vowel points, this comprehensive resource is more helpful than ever! Entries provide the stem, tense, person, gender, number, and suffix attached to each verb form, plus relevant page numbers from two standard Hebrew lexicons: Brown-Driver-Briggs and Koehler-Baumgartner's.
There are many Old Testament Hebrew lexicons available today, yet none offer the accuracy, user-friendliness, or affordable price as the single volume Old Testament Parsing Guide. Formerly published in a highly regarded two volume set, this new edition of Old Testament Parsing Guide seeks to offer help to Hebrew students by addressing their major need-- the verbal system.
With newly added vowel points, Old Testament Parsing Guide is easier to read and a more valuable Old Testament translation tool than ever.

Old Testament Parsing Guide: Revised and Updated Edition Jul 27, 2007
The parsing of all OT verbs comes in handy with a parsing guide like this. Even though beginners should not over-depend on such tool when learning Biblical Hebrew, it is still good to have a well-printed book like this for easy reference.
Say Goodbye to Biblical-Hebrew-Phobia Jul 27, 2006
What we had to spend hours for translating a single verse from the original Hebrew text before can be done in a few minutes under your fingertip now. Every verb in every verse of every chapter in every book of the OT is parsed with stem, tense, PGN (person/gender,number) and root. It's time-saving, efficient, and handy. A necessary tool for scholars and pastors.
Outstanding Feb 26, 2006
Quick and every thing I was looking for. Could not have asked for a better transaction.
great tool, but a word of caution to beginners... Jun 12, 2004
The toughest thing for beginners of Biblical Hebrew is not so much the syntax, but the morphology. This volume is what some experts may consider a "crutch"-an otherwise helpful book that can have serious repercussions on a beginner. A word of caution to beginners in reading BH: Do not purchase this book until you have had about 3 semesters or more of graduate-level biblical Hebrew. Why? Because this work, as I state above, can be a "crutch" to new-comers in that it parses every single verb and participle in the Hebrew OT, thereby giving the student instantaneous access to a skill that should probably be attained via arduous study. It will pay off in the long run to be able to parse a verb on one's own without this parsing tool. One reason I have it is for checking my work, and also for it's relatively quick one, sometimes two-word English definitions that accompany each entry. I recommend the book for those who have a firm grasp of reading Biblical Hebrew for its quick-reference capabilities, but I recommend it with some reservation for novices.
An amazing reference! Apr 4, 2001
A truly amazing reference for any Hebrew student. This book lists _every single_ verb in the entire Hebrew Bible and breaks it down according to its aspects. I can't even imagine all the work that went into preparing this book -- but it certainly saved me a significant amount of time in my studies!
