Lexham English Bible (LEB)

  • Editors: W. Hall Harris III, Elliot Ritzema, Rick Brannan, Douglas Mangum, John Dunham, Jeffrey A. Reimer, and Micah Wierenga
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2010, 2012

The LEB is a new translation of the Bible into English. It clearly communicates the meaning of the original languages and gives you a clear English translation, and shows you how it gets there. It is one of the components in a suite of resources from Lexham Press which connect the original language texts to formal translations.

The LEB achieves an unparalleled level of transparency because the LEB has as its starting point the Lexham Greek-English Interlinear New Testament. It makes extensive use of the most up-to-date lexical reference works available, Frederick Danker’s A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature (BDAG) and Louw and Nida’s Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament based on Semantic Domains.

The LEB closely follows the original while remaining readable in contemporary English. The style of the translation is relatively literal, which stems from the desire to have the English translation correspond transparently to the original language text. The translators attempt—within these constraints—to produce a clear and readable English translation instead of a woodenly literal one.

Lexham Hebrew Bible with Morphology

  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2014

The Lexham Hebrew Bible (LHB) is Logos’ own, in-house Hebrew Bible. As Logos branched out from only licensing content from publishers to also creating our own content, we needed a Hebrew Bible that we maintained to hang data on, since third party databases are moving targets and their use in derivative products is sometimes limited by licensing issues.

Because LHB is the Bible on which we base all of our in-house data projects, it has the best integration with the most Logos databases, including the Bible Knowledgebase (Biblical People, Biblical Places, etc.), the participant referent tagging (which tags things like who/what a pronoun refers to, or who the implied subject of a verb is), the Bible Sense Lexicon, the Hebrew Pronunciation audio clips, and more. It is also the Hebrew Bible that Logos’ interlinears and reverse interlinears are aligned to, as well as the Hebrew Discourse project, facilitating better sympathetic highlighting between these texts—highlight a word in one text and see the corresponding words highlighted in the others. LHB is also the database behind the Clause Search feature introduced in Logos 5.

Lexham Hebrew-English Interlinear Bible (LHI)

  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2004

The Lexham Hebrew-English Interlinear Bible is designed for electronic reference and based on the latest linguistic research. It is being created especially for Logos Bible Software and is a Logos exclusive.

Rather than present a single gloss for each Hebrew word, the interlinear takes advantage of the digital medium to offer multiple layers of English glosses that reflect the complexity of biblical Hebrew language structure. It also includes a wide range of annotations.

This approach benefits all users, whatever their level of Hebrew, as they have access to data that gives a more nuanced look at the Hebrew text.

 . . . the Lexham Hebrew-English Interlinear Bible will be a helpful tool that’s based on current research into discourse analysis, can be used intuitively, and corresponds to the way people actually read the text.

—Christo van der Merwe, Lexham Hebrew-English Interlinear Bible lead editor, professor of biblical Hebrew grammar, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa

  • Publisher: Lexham Press

The Lexham High Definition Old Testament: Introduction builds on the information found in the glossary with larger definitions and explanations for each discourse feature in the Lexham High Definition Old Testament, introducing the concepts for understanding its annotations. These explanations begin with examples from normal, everyday English to orientate the user with how their own language works. From there, more examples are provided directly from the Old Testament showing these same features at work in Scripture in a practical and accessible manner. Helpfully, all of this extra information is accessible directly from the glossary with a single click.

The Lexham English Septuagint (LES)

  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2012

The Lexham English Septuagint is a new translation of the Septuagint (LXX, the Greek version of the Old Testament) based on Henry Barclay Swete’s edition of the Septuagint, The Old Testament in Greek according to the Septuagint. Based on the work of the popular Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint, the LES provides a literal, readable, and transparent English edition of the Greek Old Testament, which was the edition of the Old Testament writings most popularly used during New Testament times and in the early church.

Lexham English Septuagint English-Greek Reverse Interlinear

  • Authors: Rick Brannan, Isaiah Hoogendyk, Mark Keaton, and James Parks
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2014

The English-Greek Reverse Interlinear Lexham English Septuagint aligns the Greek text of H.B. Swete’s Septuagint with the word order of the English translation. It aims to assist in the reading and study of the Septuagint by allowing users to mix English and Greek terms in searches and to immediately discern the text from which the translation was made. Like other reverse interlinears available in Logos Bible Software, this reverse interlinear adds information on the underlying Greek text in lines below the English text as well as in a reverse interlinear “ribbon” on the bottom of the resource window. The display of these items is completely configurable.

Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint: H.B. Swete Edition

  • General Editor: Randall Tan
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2012

The Septuagint (LXX), the Greek translation of the Old Testament, is an invaluable resource for study of the Hebrew Bible and early Christian literature. Providing an early witness to the text of the Old Testament, the LXX can be particularly helpful in understanding difficult Hebrew texts. And as the Bible of the early Church, it is the basis of many Old Testament quotations found in the New Testament. In addition to the Greek translations of the Hebrew canon, the LXX also includes important deutero-canonical writings such as the Maccabees, Sirach and additions to Esther and Daniel, among others.

The Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint: H. B. Swete Edition takes advantage of its digital environment to offer multiple layers of linguistic information that reflect the complexity of Greek. Along with the morphology and lemma levels, this new edition offers two levels of interlinear translation: the lexical value, which is a concise definition as it would be found in a lexicon; and the English literal translation, a contextually sensitive gloss of the inflected form of the word. The difference in these glosses is subtle, but powerful. The first gloss answers the question, “What is the typical meaning of this word?” The second gloss answers the question, “What does the Greek mean in this context?”

Unlike other Greek Septuagints, this special H. B. Swete version contains some of the oldest available manuscripts, including Codexes Vaticanus, Sinaiticus, Alexandrinus, and includes portions of the Odes, Psalms of Solomon, and Enoch.

Lexham Analytical Lexicon to the Septuagint: H.B. Swete Edition

  • Editors: Isaiah Hoogendyk, David deSilva, Randall Tan, and Rick Brannan
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2012

The Lexham Analytical Lexicon to the Septuagint is a new lexicon to aid your study of the Old Testament in Greek. It can serve as a compendium to any Septuagint text, but it is specifically based on The Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint: H.B. Swete Edition (Swete LXX). Every lemma used in the Swete LXX is included as an entry in the present volume. As an electronic resource for use exclusively in Logos Bible Software, this is a truly powerful tool that can be utilized alongside the many other features in the software. Consequently, this volume is the first of its kind in the world of Septuagint studies.

The End of the Matter: Understanding the Epilogue of Ecclesiastes

  • Author: Miles Custis
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2012

One of the most debated subjects in Ecclesiastes studies is the purpose of its epilogue (ch. 12:9–14). Many scholars view the epilogue as a later addition that attempts to tone down the unorthodox message of the book. They tend to overlook the content of the concluding passage and in turn miss out on its significance.

The End of the Matter: Understanding the Epilogue of Ecclesiastes brings a fresh perspective to the epilogue of Ecclesiastes. In it, author Miles Custis puts forth the theory that Ecclesiastes was written by one man who used two distinct voices: the voice of Qohelet and the voice of the epilogist. In regards to this theory, Custis examines the criticism surrounding the relationship between the body of Ecclesiastes and the epilogue. He shows how the message of the epilogue fits with the body of Ecclesiastes, and as a result, brings readers a deeper understanding of the meaning, structure, and purpose of Ecclesiastes’ last verses.

The Resurrected Servant in Isaiah

  • Author: John D. Barry
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2010

The servant in Isaiah 52 and 53 is one of the most intriguing figures in the prophetic Scriptures. The questions are many, the interpretations are diverse, and the answers always seem to be different. Some have looked to this text in search of Jesus, others to reclaim Israel’s role in the world, and some to find a historical explanation for this prophetic text that seems to have no precedence.

Many have stood in awe of the prophecy about the servant in Isaiah 52:13–53:12—either because of its lack of theological precedence in ancient literature, or because of the parallels between the servant and the portrayal of Jesus of Nazareth in the Gospels.

However, in the past 30 years, there has been little examination of the servant’s possible resurrection in Isaiah 53:10–12. Harry M. Orlinsky and R.N. Whybray’s interpretations, in particular, have been cited as disproving the resurrection in Isaiah 53. Despite Orlinsky’s and Whybray’s interpretations being cited multiple times as as evidence again resurrection in Isaiah 53:10–12, participant reference in discourse analysis, a method pioneered since their works were written, suggests otherwise. The Resurrected Servant in Isaiah reevaluates the scholarly consensus about the resurrected servant and proposes a new interpretation.

John Barry’s exegesis of Isaiah 52:13–53:12, a crucial text for Christian apologetics, is brilliant: well researched and cogently argued. Step by step he convincingly demonstrates that the prophet proclaims to the Babylonian exiles an individual servant who offers his life as a sin offering and is raised from the dead. His book will be my first port of call when studying this great text.
