Spelling in the Hebrew Bible

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Spelling in the Hebrew Bible is a valuable guide to the Hebrew Bible’s spelling. It attempts four things: first, it describes the orthographic phenomena of the Hebrew Bible; second, it assesses the evidence by means of appropriate statistical analyses; third, it interprets the evidence in terms of the history of Hebrew spelling; finally, it speculates on the significance of this evidence for studies in the production and transmission of the text.

With the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in Spelling in the Hebrew Bible are tagged and appear on mouse-over, and all Scripture passages link to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With Passage Guides, Word Studies, and a wealth of other tools, the Logos edition of Spelling in the Hebrew Bible is designed to enhance your study of the BHS.
