Dictionary of Classical Hebrew (complete 8 volumes)

Prod ID: DCH
Retail: $1,280.00 / Accordance: $349.00

This is the complete 8-volume set of The Dictionary of Classical Hebrew, edited by David J. A. Clines, a completely new and innovative work.

Unlike previous dictionaries, which have been dictionaries of Biblical Hebrew, this is the first dictionary of the classical Hebrew language to include the Bible, Ben Sira, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and all the other known Hebrew inscriptions and manuscripts.

This dictionary covers the period from the earliest times to 200 CE. It lists and analyzes every occurrence of each Hebrew word that occurs in texts of that period, with an English translation of every Hebrew word and phrase cited.

Among its special features are:

  • A list of the non-biblical texts cited (especially the Dead Sea Scrolls)
  • A word frequency index for each letter of the alphabet
  • A substantial bibliography (from Volume 2 onward)
  • An English-Hebrew index in each volume

    Clines approaches the task of creating a dictionary of Classical Hebrew, including occurrences of words in ALL classical Hebrew, ordered in alphabetical order as opposed to the more troublesome “root” method. Clines seeks to provide more semantic data, as well as exhaustive citations of each occurrences in the Classical Hebrew corpus. The Accordance version is tagged and hyperlinked and easy to use with every Hebrew text I throw at it. I use DCH for most of my lexical work
