Exactly what is needed Jun 15, 2004
As others have said, this is a terrific vocabulary builder, containing both Hebrew and Aramaic words. The back contains an index which I have found wonderfully helpful as an aid to finding the root in drop-letter or hollow verbs. Sometimes BDB gives far too much information. The one minor flaw is that feminine nouns aren't identified as such
Little Book for the Money Feb 25, 2002
This is a good book for the money. It has good transliteration, and it gives a short definition of the word. You will not find every word in the Bible in this book because of its size, but the book is well worth the money. It is a little tricky trying using the index if you are not familiar with the Hebrew alphabet.
A superb vocab list Aug 28, 2001
This book is a great list for those students who wish to build their vocabulary in order to gain a greater understanding to the bible. This book is not a dictionary and don't try to use it as such. The words are broken into sections according to the frequency in which they occur in the bible. The more frequent a word occurs the closer to the front they will appear. The words are not in alphabetic order. However, if you wish to improve your vocabulary quickly by learning the most useful words than this book is for you.
Handy! Jun 1, 2001
This is a good little book, if used the right way. I put it to use the best way I could -- which is to say that I typed in the text into a neat little program called Vocab and used it to drill myself to death. Behold me, well nigh translated to death!
Well Organized Jan 15, 2001
The interesting thing about learning Biblical Hebrew is that there is a definite limit to how much vocabulary you need to learn (about 8700 words). This booklet arranges all words together by frequency, without having to switch between a verb and a noun section. This book gives the frequencies of each word so that you can basically calculate how much of the Hebrew Bible you will be able to read as you learn. Its one downfall is that it doesn't give frequencies on words over 5000 occurrences--it just says 5000. Well, that's very inadequate considering that "-h" (the) occurs some 48,000 times, not 5000, and "v" (and) occurs some 38,000 times, not 5,000. Other than that, I know that having learned all words used over 200 times, I've learned close to 70% of the occurrences in the Hebrew Bible. This is the best Biblical Hebrew word listing I've seen, apart from the "Readers Lexicon," which has all words used, but it doesn't give frequencies.
