The speaker starts well. Introduction hooks you. Content is promising. Flow is logical. And then—the speaker mispronounces a word. This need not happen to you next time you speak. You can approach your next sermon, devotion, or Bible study with the confidence that you know how to pronounce all of the Bible names in the text you’re dealing with.

That’s Easy for You to Say includes the acceptable pronunciation of every proper name in every major translation of the Bible. Guidelines are based on Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic speech, plus the most widely accepted modern English usage. In addition to helping you pronounce over 7,000 words, That’s Easy for You to Say has a new section which gives the meaning of Bible names for which the meaning is known.

    I've had this resource for years, but just now found this treasure. I'm not sure if it's included in the resource, or something separate that integrates with it, but mine also has audio pronunciation of the names. I've tested out a lot of scriptures with hard names, and so far, I haven't found any names that aren't included in this work. I've found a small handful that has phonetic text pronunciations, but no audio. But almost all have the audio, too. This is an amazing resource!

    Just what I needed! Thank you! Is there a electronic version handbook/concordance available to teach us how to say the English words of the KJV into Hebrew and Greek words of the Old and New Testament?

    A great resource that should be updated to include more words. It tends to leave some out though it will list the word.

    I got more from this resource than I expected; it did give phonetic aids for English speakers to say words encountered in English-language Bibles [it is hard to read/teach when you can't pronounce the words well]. But it also (briefly) taught about some of the deeper challenges--different spellings/etc, original languages, etc. However, what I really appreciated came at the end--a roll-up of the names of God/their meanings as well as the names of people in the Bible/their meanings. I love to get surprised this way, and it scratched an itch I had for a list of the names of God.
