The Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and English Lexicon
A trio of eminent Old Testament scholars, Francis Brown, R. Driver, and Charles Briggs, spent over twenty years researching, writing, and preparing this lexicon. Since it first appeared in the early part of the twentieth century, BDB (Brown-Driver-Briggs) 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 each word, 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 an invaluable resource for all students of the Bible.
Excerpt from Publisher Preface:
"The present volume is a reprinting of the 1906 American edition, with the addition of a table of contents, the numbering system from Strong's Exhaustive Concordance conveniently found in the margins of the lexicon, the section containing corrections of the numerous errors and misprinting found in the original text, the Index of Strong's Numbers in BDB, and the two newly added indexes of verbal roots. This latest edition, which provides the Strong's number for each Hebrew and Aramaic word, opens the invaluable store of word-study material found in BDB to the novice Hebrew student and even to those with no training in Hebrew or Aramaic at all."
