Essential Biblical Hebrew Vocabularies

Learning Biblical Hebrew requires the acquisition of a vocabulary. This book is designed with this sole task in mind. As the title suggests, these are the words, i.e., the Hebrew Bible’s most common words. Within these pages, the learner will encounter more than 1,000 words arranged in eighteen essential vocabularies presented in descending frequency according to the number of occurrences in the Masoretic text of the Hebrew Bible (TaNaKh, Old Testament). It is ideal for beginners and well suited for classroom or personal use.

The Essential Hebrew Bible Vocabularies:

  • Nouns and verbs occurring 5,500 to 25 times
  • Personal and demonstrative pronouns
  • Inseparable prefixes
  • The Bible’s most common proper names
  • Particles occurring 11,000 to 200 times
  • An alphabetic index containing 1,064 entries coded according to frequency ranking and Strong’s number 

The book’s compact size (4 x 8 inches) makes it convenient to carry in a pocket, purse, or bookbag. Study these words when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise. In doing so, you will soon memorize and master the Hebrew Bible’s most common words.
