Brown was largely responsible for the preparation of The BDB Hebrew-English Lexicon, for many of its articles as well as for the arrangement of the book and the general editorial oversight. Samuel Rolles Driver October 2, - , English divine and in the words of one observer "the greatest Bible scholar of his generation.


One of the foremost champions of Biblical criticism, Driver has always taken a conservative view, showing much moderation and sympathy with the orthodox position. He was pastor of the Presbyterian church of Roselle, New Jersey, , and professor of Hebrew and cognate languages in Union Theological Seminary From to he was an editor of the Presbyterian Review.

In he was tried for heresy by the presbytery of New York and acquitted; the general assembly, however, suspended Briggs in The Aramaic of the Targums and other Jewish- Aramaic documents, as well as the post-Biblical Hebrew have been examined in the dictionaries of Buxtorf, J. Levy, Jastrow, and Dalman, the collections of Bacher, the grammars of Strack, Marti, and Dalman, the editions of Lagarde, b2 Berliner, and Merx, as well as the older publications.

In the Aramaic Appendix frequent references have been made not only to the grammars of Kautzsch and Dalman, but also to Krauss's Griechische u. Adler, G.

The Enhanced Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and English Lexicon

Egyptian parallels have been adduced mainly from Wiedemann, Bondi, Erman, Steindorff and Spiegelberg, with occasional reference to Lepsius, Brugsch and Ebers. In all these departments, where active work is going on, fugitive materials have of course been found in many places, often scattered and sometimes remote. It has been the purpose to recognize good textual emendations, but not to swell the list by conjectures which appeared to lack a sound basis.

There is still much to do in textual criticism, and much which has been done since the printing of this Lexicon began would receive recognition if extensive revision wei'e now possible. Among the critical discussion of the Hebrew texts which have been frequently used are those of Geiger, Graetz, Wellhausen Samuel, Minor Prophets , Perles, Beer Job , Driver Samuel , Burney Oort, Cornill Ezelciel, Jeremiah , Kings , the several Parts of the Polychrome Bible, the Notes by translators in Kautzsch's Altes Testament, as well as those found in the Commentaries especially the two recently completed series published under the editorship of Nowack and Marti, respectively, and the Old Testament volumes of the International Critical Commentary, edited by Professors Briggs and Driver , and in many periodicals.

As to the arrangement of the work, the Editors decided at an early stage of their preparations to follow the Thesaurus, and the principal dictionaries of other Semitic languages, in classifying words according to their stems, and not to adopt the purely alphabetical order which has been common in Hebrew dictionaries.

The relation of Semitic derivatives to the stems is such as to make this method of grouping them an obvious demand from the scientific point of view.

It is true that practical objections to it may be offered, but these do not appear convincing. And even if the objection were much more important it would be better to assume the burden of it, in order to give students of Hebrew, from the outset, the immense advantage of familiarity with the structure and formative laws of the Hebrew vocabulary in their daily work.

Another objection in- cidental to this arrangement is thought to be the increased difficulty of reference. This difficulty will diminish rapidly as students advance in knowledge, and by the practice of setting words formed by prefix or affix or otherwise hard for — the beginner to trace —a second time in their alphabetical place, with cross- hoped to do away with the difficulty almost entirely.

This is a change from that older practice which, since it was adopted here, has been made also by Siegfried and Stade, and by Buhl, and which the Editors believe will commend itself on grounds of evident propriety. The question of adding an English-Hebrew Index has been carefully con- sidered. With reluctance it has been decided, for practical reasons, not to do so. The original limits proposed for the Lexicon have already been far exceeded, and the additional time, space, and cost which an Index would require have presented a barrier which the Editors could not see their way to remove.

The work of preparing the Lexicon has been divided as follows The articles : — written by Professor Driver include all pronouns, prepositions, adverbs, con- junctions, interjections, and other particles, together with some nouns whose principal use with or without a preposition is adverbial also some entire ; stems of which only one derivative is used adverbially: e. 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.

BDB gives not only dictionary definitions for each word, but relates each word to its usage in the Hebrew Bible and categorizes its nuanced meanings. Exhaustive coverage of Hebrew words, its unparalleled usage of cognate languages and the wealth of background sources consulted and quoted, has made BDB the most recommended resource for all students of the Bible.

No Account?

But it's not only Bible students who can benefit by consulting it: Unlike most other dictionaries, BDB lists words by their roots rather than in alphabetical order and in each case gives the full range of biblical usages.

That is why, if you are trying to trace a word's etymology in post-biblical or modern Hebrew usage, you'd do well to consult BDB as well. The use of Strong's numbers makes this edition especially user-friendly and allows the reader to easily look up the meaning of almost any word in the Hebrew Bible no matter what level of language skills you have.

No need to worry about "embedding" or installing properly fonts on another person's system.They could not have been satisfied to pursue the course chosen by Professors Siegfried and Stade in excluding the etymological feature almost entirely from their lexicon.

Therefore, in order to find any given word, you must first determine its root. Halpern, J. March , He was pastor of the Presbyterian church of Roselle, New Jersey, , and professor of Hebrew and cognate languages in Union Theological Seminary
