Why a lexicon? "In the beginning was the WORD." Word usage is enormously helpful to Biblical understanding. H.W.F. Gesenius (mid 1800's) is acclaimed as the Noah Webster of Old Testament Hebrew lexicons (dictionary). He brings to the Old Testament a wonderful blend of Christian/Jewish background and insight. Be sure to note not only the word you are looking up, but also the words that surround it, for they too often lend very interesting and even uncanny insight (divine providence). See also Spiros Zodhiates' "The Complete Word Study Dictionary: New Testament." e.g. Word 2000 in Zod.: "dangerous, near to falling." Word 2000 in Ges.: "utter destruction." Commentary on Y2K?
GREAT BOOK TO ADD TO YOUR VINTAGE HEBREW-ENGLISH LEXICON LIBRARY.
