A Hebrew and English Lexicon of the Old Testament


Based on the Lexicon of William Gesenius as translated by Edward Robinson, Edited with constant reference to the Thesaurus of Gesenius as completed by E. Rodiger, and with authorized use of the latest German editions of Gesenius' "Handworterbuch uber das Alte Testament", by Francis Brown, with the co-operation of S. R. Driver, and Charles A. Briggs

Based on the seminal work in Hebrew lexicography, Gesenius' Thesaurus, this lexicon offers the reader short English definitions, and, in cases of uncertainty, the means of forming an independent judgment from the extant materials and the extra-biblical history of the words. Words are classified according to their stems and no pronunciations are supplied. The comprehensive appendix containing the Biblical Aramaic makes use of important Aramaic texts from Egypt, of the fifth century B.C.
