"Stands alone as the definitive reference work on Hebrew grammar." -- Ancient Hebrew Studies Center
For almost a century, Gesenius' Hebrew Grammar has proven to be one of the most comprehensive works on Hebrew, covering all aspects of the language, including historical background, pronunciation, etymology, syntax, and sentence structure. Generally recognized as the most useful and authoritative reference grammar for Biblical Hebrew, the text includes indices of Hebrew words, subjects, and Biblical passages as well as an extremely valuable appendix listing paradigms.
An indispensable resource for students and translators, Gesenius' book remains the most usable reference grammar for classical Hebrew.
