5.0 out of 5 stars Required. The Gold Standard..., September 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Gold Standard. Why? It groups words by roots, and also yields String's numbers to cross-reference.

I ordered the 1979 edition, which was the last to apparently have an English dictionary, I was sent 2006 ed, but these facsimiles of the older text make mention, in the author/editor's words, that an english index was deemed outside the scope of the work...

So, was the ever an English dictionary? Now I wonder...


Interlinear NIV Hebrew-English Old Testament, The
Interlinear NIV Hebrew-English Old Testament, The

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are digging for the truth, as you know it, you need all the interlinears..., September 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love this book. It is a necessary counter to the J.P. Green (OT/NT) Interlinear I have (I know this is just OT). It is actually thicker than Strong's or any other study bible I have, and has no droll commentaries-it gets right to the point. This leaves room for written commentaries by the reader. I have YT videos of my adding bookmarks to it, and already have rainbow Tabbies on it. The books line up with Christian order, not Jewish.

About the NIV in the outer margins. It is nicely placed, and the text is small enough to leave enough room on the stage for the main attraction-Hebrew. The NIV, though, is not what you would expect from a purely NIV translation. I mean, the NIV words/phrases are mostly there, but they are arranged to be more in line with the _grammar_ of the original Hebrew. If this doesn't make sense to you, ask in "Comments".

One thing I will tell you is that I have found the Zondervan translations to not be in line with most other translations of the same text-and I don't mean the NIV, but the Hebrew->English translation. The large, blue JP Green interlinear is more in line with traditional translations. Thankfully, you can compare them side-by-side, along with Briggs & Strong's and get an idea of what the original text meant.

But I'm telling you, just one word can change the translation of a verse dramatically. As the Masoretes altered significantly the Paleo-Hebrew to translate it, so too have the various authors of various translations altered it-and in modern times, unfortunately changed meanings to suit their own perverted designs.

I just seek the closest to the original, and I find the conflicts at even the most basic level both fascinating & annoying. This book will do you no good if you are fluent in Biblical Hebrew, but it is a great character-for-character reference for those of us seeking the true word in it's original form, as elusive as that is, for only then can we see the message untainted by the hand of Man-however well or ill-intentioned!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great partner to their 'cards', September 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very nice. Goes with the cards well! You need to really get the alephbet & Masoretic vowels down before this, though, as it kind of assumes you've done your pre-requisite homework ahead of time, only breezing over the requirement at the very beginning.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh... Just another commentary..., September 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Hard to figure this out. Best I can tell, it is just some guy going through various books & select passages, trying to tell you the meaning(s) of what they say? I think we are swamped with commentaries that tell us what to think and what to see. Best is to point the way and not think for the reader, is my opinion.

We have enough sheeple as it is...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Cards... Not Alephbet-just vocabulary., September 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very nice stock, and they START at ch 3 of the accompanying textbook. This means you have to already have the entire alephbet & vowels (Masoretic, not Paleo) down before these are used-as these focus on, wait for it... vocabulary. Not a lot of use without the excellent textbook that accompanies it. I am just learning, so I can't tell you the quality of the subtleties of the translation. I think all the competitors in this space post bad things about the others' translations, to be honest. Best is if you compare, and then bring both to a native Jew, or if studying truly Biblical (vs "Mediterranean", or modern) Hebrew to a rabbi or someone who is well versed.

At this point, I assume that there is only one way to pronounce, but I use Strings & Briggs, .. to cross-reference & verify.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We use these for our dog, per vet's prescription, and they are a good price. Wal-Mart _used_ to have these by the 1,000 for just $15 (you have to ask the Pharmacy-they will not display them), but that price went up as well... I suppose eventually people caught on, and now the inevitable price gouging has kicked in...

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best gift you can give a Mason that is Christian, September 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is the best gift you can give a Mason that is Christian. It's a KJV translation, if that pleases you, and it has a large-ish section in the front that illustrates all things that are supposed to be relevant to Masonry inside, as well as a quiz, or sorts, in the early sections before the text. I have acquired a few now, giving them to Brothers in hopes that they will find them suitable heirlooms to pass on to the children as Brothers who follow in their footsteps.

4.0 out of 5 stars China: Messing with a good thing _never_ works..., September 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's still a good fan, but they changed it from just a few years ago. Now the cord is on the left, and shorter, and it's outside has changed slightly, making it harder to hold/remove/carry-but not much. The fans seem weaker as well. Although they made it a little crappier (to lower cost not price, is my guess), it is still the best, most flexible fan you can get for the $. Each fan is individually controlled, and the thermostat turns both on/off in 5degF increments from 60 -> 80.

You can find a comparison of these to their competitor (Tabbies), and why they are frankly inferior, hee: http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/990049346X/ref=cm_cr_dp_cust_img_see_all_txt

Not all bible indexes are created equal. So I took picture s of these and others, side by side, for you to understand the differences that do not come out in the listings... And after all, isn't that what reviews are _really_ good for? ;)
