Whether you know Hebrew or not, this book will provide you with a quick reference resource for learning the meaning of many Hebrew words that lie beneath the English translations, which will open new doors for you into Biblical interpretation. The Hebrew language of the Bible must be understood from its original and Ancient Hebrew perspective. Our interpretation of a word like "holy" is an abstract idea, derived out of a Greco-Roman culture and mindset, which is usually understood as someone or something that is especially godly, pious or spiritual. However, the Hebrew word (qadosh) means, from an Ancient Hebrew perspective, unique and is defined in this dictionary as: "Someone or something that has, or has been given the quality of specialness, and has been separated from the rest for a special purpose." With this interpretation, we discover that the nation of Israel is not "holy," in the sense of godliness or piety, but is a unique and special people, separated from all others to serve God. This Biblical Hebrew dictionary contains the one thousand most frequent verbs and nouns found within the Hebrew Bible. Each word is translated and defined from its original concrete Ancient Hebrew perspective, allowing for a more accurate interpretation of the text. In addition to the one thousand verbs and nouns, the appendices in the book include a complete list of Hebrew pronouns, prepositions, adverbs, conjunctions and numbers."

This book has been designed to be a quick reference guide for looking up the meaning of common Hebrew words found in the Hebrew Bible, as well as a resource for learning the Hebrew vocabulary. Within this book is a list of the 1000 most frequently used Hebrew verbs (379) and nouns (621) from the Hebrew Bible. Each word entry includes: 1. The Hebrew word (in modern and ancient script). 2. A transliteration of the Hebrew word. 3. A one or two word translation of the Hebrew word. 4. A more detailed definition of the Hebrew word. 5. Cross references to other resources. In the appendices are additional words and details about the Hebrew language including: 1. The Hebrew alphabet and vowels. 2. Hebrew prefixes and suffixes. 3. Pronouns, prepositions, etc. Ancient Hebrew Dictionary 4. Hebrew numbers. 5. Hebrew verb conjugations. Dictionary Format Below is an example entry, followed by an explanation of its contents. שָׁלוֹם . 944 /  / sha-lom Translation:+Completeness Definition:+Something that has been finished or made whole. A state of being complete. AHLB:+2845 (c) Strong's:+7965 Modern Hebrew Word Following the entry number is the Hebrew word written in the Modern Hebrew script ( .(שָׁלוֹם Ancient Hebrew Word Each word is also written in the ancient pictographic script (). In some cases, this spelling may be different than the modern script. As an example, the word #390 ) אֹהֶל ) includes the hholam vowel pointing (the dot above the aleph representing the "o" sound), but in most ancient documents this word is written as אוהל (where the letter vav represents the “o” sound) or  in the ancient script. In addition, the spelling of words evolve over time. For instance, the word בּוֹר (#452, bor, a cistern) comes from the root כור (kor) meaning Introduction "to dig a hole." Therefore, the ancient spelling of this word would have been  (kor). Transliteration A transliteration from Hebrew into Roman letters (sha-lom) is given to assist with the pronunciation of Hebrew nouns. Verb transliterations will be represented by the consonants only. For instance, the transliteration for the Hebrew verb בדל (#20) is B.D.L. Translation This is one or two English words that best translate the Hebrew word. In many cases, this translation will be significantly different from what is found in other dictionaries. For instance, the word שָׁלוֹם is usually translated as "peace," but this abstract idea does not completely convey the original Hebraic meaning of this word. In this dictionary, the translation of this word is “Completeness.” An index at the end of this book allows for a cross referencing from the English translation to its corresponding entry within this dictionary. Definition This is a more specific meaning of the word which reflects its textual and original Hebraic cultural perspective. As an example, in our culture, the word "peace" means "a state of mutual harmony between people or groups." However, in Biblical Hebrew, this word means "a state of being complete." Ancient Hebrew Dictionary 10 Cross References Each entry includes a cross reference to the Ancient Hebrew Lexicon of the Bible and Strong's Dictionary. An index at the end of this book allows for a cross referencing from Strong's number to its corresponding entry within this dictionary.

From the time of its initial publication in 1810 through its most recent 18th edition completed in 2010, the dictionary has been among the most important reference works for scholars in Hebrew language studies, Old Testament biblical studies, and Semitic studies. It has exerted lasting influence on Old Testament biblical exegesis, Hebrew lexicography, and Semitic language studies. The 33 essays in this volume provide a picture of the dictionary's diverse historical interrelationships and impacts.

As biblical studies becomes increasingly fragmented, this collection of essays brings together a number of leading scholars in order to show how historical reconstruction, philology, metacriticism, and reception history can be part of a collective vision for the future of the field. This collection of essays focuses more specifically on critical questions surrounding the construction of ancient Israel(s), 'minimalism', the ongoing significance of lexicography, the development of early Judaism, orientalism, and the use of the Bible in contemporary political discourses. Contributors include John van Seters, Niels Peter Lemche, Ingrid Hjelm, and Philip R. Davies.

The Ancient Hebrew Lexicon of the Bible

Author: Jeff A. Benner

Publisher: Jeff A. Benner

ISBN: 1589397762

Category: Foreign Language Study

Page: 616

View: 506

All previous Biblical Hebrew lexicons have provided a modern western definition and perspective to Hebrew roots and words. This prevents the reader of the Bible from seeing the ancient authors' original intent of the passages. This is the first Biblical Hebrew lexicon that defines each Hebrew word within its original Ancient Hebrew cultural meaning. One of the major differences between the Modern Western mind and the Ancient Hebrew's is that their mind related all words and their meanings to a concrete concept. For instance, the Hebrew word "chai" is normally translated as "life", a western abstract meaning, but the original Hebrew concrete meaning of this word is the "stomach". In the Ancient Hebrew mind, a full stomach is a sign of a full "life". The Hebrew language is a root system oriented language and the lexicon is divided into sections reflecting this root system. Each word of the Hebrew Bible is grouped within its roots and is defined according to its original ancient cultural meaning. Also included in each word entry are its alternative spellings, King James translations of the word and Strong's number. Indexes are included to assist with finding a word within the lexicon according to its spelling, definition, King James translation or Strong's number.

Linguistics expert and long-time educator Hackett offers a robust introduction to biblical Hebrew grammar and the Masoretic text. All exercises from Hebrew to English are taken from the Old Testament: those in earlier lessons with slight modification suitable to the experience of the student; those exercises found in the later lessons are taken from the Masoretic test of the Old Testament without modification, but with footnotes to explain unusual or advanced formations. Classroom tested and suitable for self-study as well, this quick-moving one-semester course (30 lessons) features clear, readable explanations, exercises, and examples that provide students with an effective foundation in original language usage. This text-book is also suitable for an entire first-year's study of Biblical Hebrew conducted at a slower place. Course work includes an overview of the history of the Hebrew Bible; deductive lessons on recognition, drawing, and pronunciation of consonants and vowels; memorization and recitation of the alphabet; and proper spelling of words; as well inductive experience in translating biblical passages. Excellent textbook for students who wish to progress beyond using simple reference works and ideal for those who wish to read the Hebrew Bible deeply, widely, and accurately, as well as for any who wish to pursue advanced studies in the Hebrew Scriptures.

Dieses Wörterbuch dient der Rekonstruktion einzelner Fragmente von Schriftrollen und Inschriften. Während der Arbeit mit unvollständig erhaltenen Quellen etwa aus Qumran stellt sich die Frage, wie verderbte Textstellen zu ergänzen sind. Ist von einem Wort nur der letzte Teil erhalten, kann es mit Hilfe der alphabetisch rückläufig angeordneten Lemmalisten ergänzt werden. Enthalten sind alle hebräischen und aramäischen Texte auf Schriftrollen und Inschriften aus Palästina bis 135 n.Chr. Im Anhang ist der ebenfalls rückläufig angeordnete Wortschatz der Elephantine-Papyri, einschließlich der Achikar-Sprüche, zu finden, die wegen ihres Herkunftsortes eine Ausnahme darstellen.Im Anschluss an Karl Georg Kuhn, der 1958 als erster den hebräischen Wortschatz in rückläufiger Form zusammenstellte, aber nur einen kleinen Teil der Schriftrollen vom Toten Meer kannte, werden hier insbesondere die Veröffentlichungen der letzten 50 Jahre mit einbezogen.

Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament

Author: G. Johannes Botterweck,Helmer Ringgren,Heinz-Josef Fabry

This multivolume work is still proving to be as fundamental to Old Testament studies as its companion set, the Kittel-Friedrich Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, has been to New Testament studies. Beginning with 'abh ('ab), ?father,? and continuing through the alphabet, the TDOT volumes present in-depth discussions of the key Hebrew and Aramaic words in the Old Testament. Leading scholars of various religious traditions (including Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, Anglican, Greek Orthodox, and Jewish) and from many parts of the world (Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States) have been carefully selected for each article by editors Botterweck, Ringgren, and Fabry and their consultants, George W. Anderson, Henri Cazelles, David Noel Freedman, Shemaryahu Talmon, and Gerhard Wallis. The intention of the writers is to concentrate on meaning, starting from the more general, everyday senses and building to an understanding of theologically significant concepts. To avoid artificially restricting the focus of the articles, TDOT considers under each keyword the larger groups of words that are related linguistically or semantically. The lexical work includes detailed surveys of a word?s occurrences, not only in biblical material but also in other ancient Near Eastern writings. Sumerian, Akkadian, Egyptian, Ethiopic, Ugaritic, and Northwest Semitic sources are surveyed, among others, as well as the Qumran texts and the Septuagint; and in cultures where no cognate word exists, the authors often consider cognate ideas. TDOT?s emphasis, though, is on Hebrew terminology and on biblical usage. The contributors employ philology as well as form-critical and traditio-historical methods, with the aim of understanding the religious statements in the Old Testament. Extensive bibliographical information adds to the value of this reference work. This English edition attempts to serve the needs of Old Testament students without the linguistic background of more advanced scholars; it does so, however, without sacrificing the needs of the latter. Ancient scripts (Hebrew, Greek, etc.) are regularly transliterated in a readable way, and meanings of foreign words are given in many cases where the meanings might be obvious to advanced scholars. Where the Hebrew text versification differs from that of English Bibles, the English verse appears in parentheses. Such features will help all earnest students of the Bible to avail themselves of the manifold theological insights contained in this monumental work.
