Coded with Strong's Concordance Numbers
A trio of eminent Old Testament scholarsFrancis Brown, R. Driver, and Charles Briggsspent over twenty years researching, writing, and preparing The Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and English Lexicon.
Since it first appeared in the early part of the twentieth century, BDB has been considered the finest and most comprehensive Hebrew lexicon
available to the English-speaking student. Based upon the classic work of Wilhelm Gesenius,
the ""father of modern Hebrew lexicography,"" BDB gives not only dictionary definitions for each word, but relates each word
to its Old Testament usage and categorizes its nuances of meaning.
BDB's exhaustive coverage of Old Testament Hebrew words, as well as its unparalleled usage of cognate languages
and the wealth of background sources consulted and quoted, render BDB and invaluable resource for all students of the Bible.
