ISBN: 9780310521334



The Biblical Hebrew Companion for Bible Software Users helps users understand the exegetical significance of Hebrew grammatical terminology identified by the program. This resource provides students who utilize biblical language software the insight they need to make sense of the data provided by the program, giving them deeper insight into the biblical text that they could not get by solely reading an English translation.

The Biblical Hebrew Companion for Bible Software Users is ideally suited for:

  • Pastors and ministry leaders who may have learned Hebrew at one time but have experienced the loss of much of that learning
  • College and seminary students who are learning Hebrew and need a guide to help understand the significance of the grammatical terminology
  • Bible software users who never formally learned Hebrew in the classroom and need help understanding the meaning of the terms they encounter

With grammatical terms laid out and discussed in an intuitive and user-friendly format, readers can now spend time focusing on exegesis and applying their findings to their preaching, teachings, study, and writing instead of puzzling over the significance of grammatical terminology and how to apply it.

Top Highlights

“The expression, ‘Hallelujah,’ is made up of two Hebrew words: הַלְלוּ‎ (hallelu)” (Page 51)

“the translation of the construct form of a noun will be followed by the word ‘of’; the absolute form of a noun will not” (Page 10)

“‘to praise.’ The second word in the expression, yah, is a short form of the divine covenantal name Yahweh. When people say ‘Hallelujah,’ then, they are actually giving a command to those around them to ‘Praise the Lord!’” (Page 51)

“every time you see a word in Hebrew beginning with a Waw, you know you have encountered a conjunction.” (Page 24)

“Simple action with a passive voice; that is, the subject of the verb receives the action of the verb.” (Page 71)
