Based on the seminal work in Hebrew lexicography, Gesenius' Thesaurus, this lexicon offers the reader short English definitions, and, in cases of uncertainty, the means of forming an independent judgment from the extant materials and the extra-biblical history of the words. Words are classified according to their stems and no pronunciations are supplied. The comprehensive appendix containing the Biblical Aramaic makes use of important Aramaic texts from
Egypt, of the fifth century B.C.
