This edition of BHS is beautiful, hardcover with cream-colored pages, a ribbon marker, and a good size Hebrew font (with diacritics). Introduction is in German, Latin, English, French, and Spanish. Notes on each page give various information, including Greek examples from the Septuagint (my favorite part). The book although nice is not oversized, at about 7 1/4" X 5 1/4" or so, very convenient. If you are a student of Hebrew you will get your money's worth.

This product was much smaller than I expected it to be. No dimensions were offered on the Amazon shopping page but I ordered hoping that this edition of Biblia Hebraica would be a large enough book to allow for tranaslating between the lines. When it arrived, it was tiny! I was puzzled by a sticker on the back indicating that I had received the small version. I was not given a choice on amazon's website about whether I wanted a small or large edition of this book. I'd love to order a larger version from Amazon, but am not sure if they have them available.

For students and scholars of the Old Testament and Biblical Hebrew, this book is essential for furthering one's personal knowledge and understanding. This is the revised Babylonian text of the Masoretes, considered to be the definitive and one of the more accurate collection of the OT Biblical texts, complete with accurate vowel pointing as well as various notes and study helps (Though you will need to know some Greek and Latin to be able fully utilize these). The text is rather easy to read with moderately sized font. As far as size and weight are considered, it is fairly light and comes in a small portable size. Now, here is the main catch: The binding appears to be very secure, but it is actually very prone to fall apart if not taken care of properly. Dropping it is not a good idea and if a person needs to carry it around in a back pack, make sure that it is placed securely so the spine will not be rendered crooked by other items in the bag(this will prove fatal for your BHS' cover if these measure are not properly taken). It is probably better to carry in a small book back or satchel than a back pack, as my Hebrew professor suggested to me (his fell apart).

Aside from that last draw back, this edition of the Hebrew Bible is a must have for scholars and is an excellent resource for Hebraic studies.

There may be another Hebrew Bible available than this one, but I am not aware of it; I know that there is a wide-margin edition that has come out recently, but the font-size remains the same as in the narrow-margin version I have. The marginalia are in what looks like about 6-point!! Considering that the diacritical marks for the consonants are already themselves sometimes difficult to identify without getting the book a half-inch from your face, a magnifying glass would be an excellent investment when purchasing this book. Other than that criticism, this is a beautiful book and it is a beautiful thing to be able to read these biblical books in Hebrew.

I've been using my copy of this version of BHS for about four years now and it is still in amazing condition. I pick away at it everyday for about 15 to 30 minutes and I have no complaints to make against it. I couldn't ask for a better looking Hebrew font. It doesn't have that cartoonish look that so many Hebrew bibles seem to adopt; it is extremely readable. The textual variants and suggestions found in the footnotes are extremely useful when working with sticky passages. The paper quality is high, and I love the way it stays open. This version receives my highest recommendation.

When I received this version of the BHS I was suprised at how small it was, but after lugging it back and forth to class I've found this smaller version to be awsome. This is a true Hebrew student's BHS, a working man's BHS if you will.

I'm Happy with my BHS. I am surprised how clear are the font, the vowel points are very legible. I recommed this Item for any student. The most important thing, this bible shows Gods name the tetragrammaton almost 7000 times, Thank you very much!

This same edition of the Hebrew Scriptures is published bound together with the Nestle/Aland 27th edition of the Greek New Testament as Biblia Sacra Utriusque Testamenti. Students interested in both languages should check the web pages of the Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft or Amazon.de to compare prices.
