The Dictionary of Classical Hebrew, VII
Edited by David J.A. Clines

Scholars are gradually realizing that they cannot now do without this innovative dictionary, a benchmark for the study of Hebrew in the twenty-first century.

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. It is the first dictionary to analyse the exact sense of every occurrence of every word, to follow every Hebrew word or phrase with an English equivalent, to print a frequency table of occurrences of each word, and to provide an English-Hebrew index.

Not least among its features is an extraordinarily rich bibliography surveying special lexicographical studies over the last century, and adding more than 50% attested and proposed words to the stock of the Hebrew lexicon.

There are 9 volumes of the Dictionary, including Vol. 9 Index and Word Frequency Table.

See also The Concise Dictionary of Classical Hebrew, a one-volume version of The Dictionary of Classical Hebrew.

David J.A. Clines is Professor of Biblical Studies at the University of Sheffield.

[A] veritable treasure trove of information … a sine qua non for the field of Hebrew Bible and Northwest Semitic studies. No serious scholar can afford to be without it. Christopher A. Rollston, Catholic Biblical Quarterly.

It is fascinating to browse the work as well as to consult it, and particularly pleasurable to have such clear typography in a reference work.
