Overview

Overview

The Comprehensive Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic Glossary is a concise dictionary/lexicon/glossary for Biblical Hebrew and Biblical Aramaic with excellent formatting and navigation. The Hebrew is displayed beautifully on the Nook. It contains glosses for every lexeme (word) in Biblical Hebrew (over 8000) and Biblical Aramaic (over 700). It integrates lexicographic research from BDB (The Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament), HALOT (The Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament by Ludwig Koehler and Walter Baumgartner), DCH (The Dictionary of Classical Hebrew, edited by David J. A. Clines), and other sources to present the best of contemporary scholarship. Here are some of its characteristics:

- It integrates contemporary definitions with traditional interpretations.
- It lists definitions in order of descending frequency.
- It aligns proper names with the spelling of most current English Bible translations.
- It updates archaic meanings to modern norms of language.
- It provides glosses for precisely the verbal stems that appear in the Bible.
- It provides separate glosses for all homonyms.

Easy and Powerful Navigation

This digital edition of The Comprehensive Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic Glossary recognizes that you do not generally read dictionaries linearly. As a result, it makes use of all of the navigational capabilities on the various Nook devices, including the use of a two-tiered table of contents, allowing for rapid navigation to an entry in the glossary by its first two letters. Note that navigation details might be different in the various Nook applications for platforms other than the Nook itself.

In addition, you can navigate directly to a particular entry by searching for that entry using transliterated Hebrew, using just the consonants, with "h " (i.e. the letter h followed by a space) for Hebrew and "a " (i.e. the letter a followed by a space) for Aramaic. The transliteration scheme, along with more details, may be found in the book's preface.

Note on Version

This e-book was updated on January 14, 2012 to address compatibility issues with recent software updates to certain Nook models (1.4 on Nook Color and Nook Tablet, 1.1 on Nook Simple Touch Reader).

    HAUNTED|*| Chapter 3 Help!

    ||||•••••••••••••••••HAUNTED|•|••••••••••••••••••|||| <p>
    Chapter 2; Help! <br>
    "Help! Somebody!" I cryed out. Suddenly i saw a light. "Desiree?!" It was Parker. "Parker! No! Get out! Theres a demon! Go!" I fell to my knees, holding myself tightly. I felt something flowing down my hand, blood. <br>
    "Desiree! Your hand!" Parker dident seem to care about the demon part. He rushed over to me abd pulled me to him. "Des..this is deep...how did this happen?" He ripped off a piece of his clothing and tied it around my hand. <br>
    I looked terrified, "I dont know Parker! I dont know!" I breathed hevily now, and Parked pulled me into him. His arms wrapped around me as he held my head on his chest. "Im calling an ambulance...you need one." He murmured. <br>
    I shook violently, and i nodded. "Desiree? You okay?" "Yeah Des?" I heard Marley and Tara. I watched the door open and Marley's jaw dropped. "Des! Your hand!" She screeched. I shivered. "I...know." Then. I blacked out. <p>
    I awoke in my house, my right hand felt numb, stitches spead across the palm. "Mom?" I groaned inwardly. My mother hurried down to me. "Yes sweetie?" I saw a flash of black behind my mother, and my breathung immediantly turned to choaked sobs. "Mom! Theres a demon! Run!" I cryed. My mother looked confused. "A demon..?" <br>
    "Yes! Yes!" I cryed in horror as it neared my mother. "First pain you will feel." The Demon laughed, And he appeard to my mother. "Hello, Mrs. Bryans." The demon chuckled cooly and all of the sudden, vanished with my mom. I heared a scream...then...nothing. <br>
    "M...mom?" I got to my feet, slowly walking towards the kitchen. My moms hand lay limply, bloodied. Then the rest of her body. The Demon had killed my mother. "No.." I started to cry. "No!" Now that i was 16, i could live alone...but life without my mother was no question. <br>
    I called up Marley. "Hello." Her voice answered. Thank goodness! "Marley come qu-"Then the phone cut off. "Marley!? Marley!" I screamed. "I told you child." A laugh came, a demons laugh. "We have taken your frinds as prsoners." And the phone line was cut. <br>
    I sunk to the ground. "Parker!" I cryed in relife when i saw Parker standing quietly in the front door. But he was still. "Parker...? Say something? Please?" "Im your worst nightmare. I will kill you, Desiree Bryans." It was a harsh cold tone...then a cough and a struggled voice. "Desiree...run.." It was Parker. And the Demon had posseced him. "No Parker!" <br>
    "Please...i love you..Des....i dont want to see you..killed." Then the Demon had taken over. "Choose! You, or him." The Demon barked. "Me!" I pleaded. "N..no..Des." Parker spoke agakn.."D..dont choose." He whispered. The Demon pushed me down. "Choose!" "I...i have no answer." I studdered. <br>
    "Then ill choose for you." The Demon had slowly faded from Parkers body, but dident leave without choosing. "I...love y-" Parker sunk to the ground, his blue eyes looked up at me. "I.." He fell silent. <br>
    "PARKER! No!' <p>
    Chapter 4; Revenge. Coming soon.

    Miklal Software Solutions The Comprehensive Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic Glossary for nook

    Miklal Software Solutions The Comprehensive Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic Glossary for nook contains both Hebrew and Aramaic dictionaries from Humphrey H. Hardy II. The format of the dictionary is superb. It is easy to navigate and text looks beautiful. Every Hebrew and Aramaic word that appears in the Bible is there. Definitions are taken from The Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament, The Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament by Ludwig Koehler and Walter Baumgartner, The Dictionary of Classical Hebrew, and more in order to present the best possible scholarship. Since a dictionary is not read linearly, MSS has gone to extremes to make navigation easy. There are several navigation options. The first is a table of contents with hyperlinks to each letter in the Hebrew and Aramaic alphabets. Selecting the letter provides the next level of screens, which provides two letters, narrowing down your choices. The second navigation method allows you to scroll through the letter you want to search in transliteration. This gives you a list of two-letter combinations to narrow down your search. The third navigation option allows you to move the slider in order to navigate to a particular location. These letters are also transliterated. The fourth method allows you to search for the transliterated word. Simply type 'h', a space, and the word in Hebrew and 'a', space, and the word for Aramaic. There is a table provided that shows the transliterated letters. MSS has developed one of the most useful navigation systems I've seen. The navigation features make the dictionary a very usable study tool for the study of Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic. Miklal Software Solutions has done an excellent job in developing The Comprehensive Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic Glossary by Humphrey H. Hardy II for nook. With easy to use but still advanced navigation, this dictionary is a very useful study tool. I recommend The Comprehensive Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic Glossary by Humphrey H. Hardy II for nook even if you don't have a nook, because it works great on the nook app. For the price, it's a must-own app for Bible study. Miklal Software Solutions provided this review copy for free. I was not required to give a positive review- only an honest review.
