The Book of Ruth in Hebrew

Overview

From the Introduction: “The editor had two principle objects in view in commencing the present work, namely, in the first place, to exhibit a specimen of a minute collation of Hebrew MSS, embracing not only the variations with respect to the consonants, but also those with respect to the Masoretic vowels and accents . . . And, in the second place, he desired to supply junior students with such assistance as might be needful in their early attempts at translating Hebrew, while at the same time the requirements of advanced scholars were steadily borne in mind.”

This volume is essential for students, scholars, pastors, historians, teachers of the Bible, and anyone else studying the book of Ruth. With Logos Bible Software, the volume is completely searchable—Scripture passages appear on mouse-over and link to the Hebrew texts and English translations in your library. This accessibility makes these texts more powerful and easier to access than ever before. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “Moab” or “Ruth 1:16.”
