Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


This dictionary lists the meanings of most of the Hebrew names that appear in the Bible (over 2,500). Though first published in 1869, Hitchcock’s scholarship of the Hebrew language still measures up to contemporary standards. In fact, biblical linguists to this day are undecided about the meaning of the few words Hitchcock did not include. This work can prove an invaluable resource for anyone who wishes to study Scripture or the Hebrew language more deeply.
