BHAL (Paperback)—A Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon
“Frank Matheus’s wordbook is the ideal dictionary for a language course in Biblical Hebrew. It provides all necessary information including the most important grammatical forms, clearly arranged and easily accessible. In contrast to the large exegetical dictionaries, students have quick access to all important meanings and can therefore orientate themselves quickly and safely.”
—Prof. Dr. Peter Mommer, Faculty of Protestant Theology, Ruhr University Bochum, Germany
“BHAL is a welcome tool for readers of the original languages of the Old Testament. Dr. Matheus is to be commended for the herculean effort that went into producing this helpful new resource.”
