UPGRADE to BDB (Complete) from BDB
- Brown-Driver-Briggs Abridged Hebrew Lexicon with Strong’s
This upgrade to BDB (Complete) will give you:
- expanded definitions
- other semitic languages
- Scripture references
The standard lexicon for Biblical Hebrew, BDB organizes words according to their lexical roots. Unlike other electronic versions of BDB which are merely based upon this classic work, this edition is a true BDB, including the comparisons with other semitic languages and Scripture references.
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 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 an invaluable resource for all students of the Bible.
The Biblical Aramaic section is included in this edition.
