Bibliographical Tools for the Study of Hebrew Bible Texts

There is a set of specialized tools for studying biblical Hebrew texts. These are different from the tools used for modern Hebrew because the languages are substantially different, and because the study of ancient texts, written in "dead" or "literary" languages, such as BH (biblical Hebrew), is fundamentally different from the study of modern languages. The types of tools are:

  1. scholarly editions of the Hebrew Bible
  2. lexica
  3. grammars
  4. concordances

The following introduces the most popular of these tools, explains their utility, and offers examples of how and when to use them. The exercises further illustrate these tools' utility and use.
