The Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew Lexicon is an essential reference work for serious Old Testament study. This lexicon (dictionary) provides not only the English equivalents for Hebrew words, but also relates various meanings to specific passages in the OT. The Logos electronic version of BDB is a very special product and unquestionably the most useful version of BDB ever released.
The text has been fully corrected and updated with all changes noted in the addenda et. corrigenda in the print edition. This book represents maximum complexity in minimum pages. The number of Bible links, cross references, popups and jumps far exceeds the average Bible reference book.
For the serious language scholar, the Logos edition of BDB provides "word linking" (from the actual Hebrew and Greek character set) to and from Hebrew and Greek texts and other lexicons. In addition, it provides comprehensive linking through Strong's Numbers, GK numbers and TWOT making this work totally accessible to the English Bible student.
BDB remains one of the finest ever scholarly achievements, and one would be naive to think it is a work that can be ignored or bypassed. I have found it to contain superior articles on many Hebrew words, especially on the particles. The quality of scholarship is of the highest order and created a legacy that looms large over the world of Hebrew scholarship, and can be felt in more recent works like Clines, see below. Many scholars, including a well known international scholar with whom I recently corresponded, still prefer BDB over other works.
This modul is great! If I have no this dectionary, my hebrew study is going to jam actually! Some people are using bibleworks and I know it is good too but there is one important different thing between logos and bibleworks. The Bibleworks program has not an extra descriptions on this dictionary for the abbrev. but Logos has it! Logos indecates most abbrev. in highlight pop-ups. This is very important thing to starters of Hebrew study.
