Overview

The Dictionary of Classical Hebrew is a completely new and innovative dictionary. Unlike previous dictionaries, which have been dictionaries of biblical Hebrew, it is the first dictionary of the classical Hebrew language to cover not only the biblical texts but also Ben Sira, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the Hebrew inscriptions. This dictionary covers the period from the earliest times to 200 CE. It lists and analyses every occurrence of each Hebrew word that occurs in texts of that period, with an English translation of every Hebrew word and phrase cited.

  • Completely new and innovative dictionary
  • Covers the period from the earliest times to 200 CE
  • Covers the biblical texts, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the Hebrew inscriptions

Among its special features:

  • A list of the nonbiblical texts cited (especially the Dead Sea Scrolls)
  • A word frequency index for each letter of the alphabet
  • A substantial bibliography (from vol. 2 onward)
  • An English–Hebrew index in each volume
The praise of BDB in 1892 may be repeated for this new dictionary. It is indeed ‘a landmark and a glory for the generation which produced [it].’

—C. S. Rodd, editor, Expository Times

Sheffield is to be congratulated on a remarkable achievement. Volume one proves beyond doubt that The Dictionary of Classical Hebrew is going to combine the strengths of the Gesenius-BDB tradition—thoroughness, comprehensiveness, meticulous ‘old-fashioned’ textual scholarship—with impeccable twentieth-century linguistic theory.

—J. F. A. Sawyer, Society for Old Testament Study Book List

If there is anything sensational about the contemporary study of ancient Hebrew, then one must say: It is in book form, and the book is called the Sheffield Dictionary of Classical Hebrew. Absolutely indispensable!
