A Book-by-Book Guide to Biblical Hebrew Vocabulary is intended to help students, pastors, and professors who wish to read a particular book of the Hebrew Bible in its original language to master the vocabulary that occurs most frequently in the book in question. In contrast to typical Hebrew and Greek vocabulary guides, which present vocabulary words based on their frequency in the Hebrew Bible or New Testament as a whole, this book presents vocabulary words based on their frequency in individual biblical books of the Hebrew Bible, thus allowing readers to understand and engage with the text of a particular book easily and quickly.
