Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew-English Lexicon
Publisher: Hendrickson Publishers
Category: Word Studies
A trio of eminent Old Testament scholars: Francis Brown, R. Driver, and Charles Briggs spent over twenty years researching, writing, and preparing The Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and English Lexicon. Since it first appeared in the early part of the twentieth century, BDB has been considered the finest and most comprehensive Hebrew lexicon available to the English-speaking student. Based upon the classic work of Wilhelm Gesenius, the 'father of modern Hebrew lexicography,' BDB gives not only dictionary definitions for 8764 words, but relates each word to its Old Testament usage and categorizes its nuances of meaning. BDB's exhaustive coverage of Old Testament Hebrew words, as well as its unparalleled usage of cognate languages and the wealth of background sources consulted and quoted, render BDB and invaluable resource for all students of the Bible.This unabridged lexicon contains the Strong's numbering system which will greatly increase the usefulness of this work by all serious students of the Bible, especially those who know little or no Hebrew.
