Hi

I'm starting to learn Hebrew and I would like to purchase one of this bibles. Don't know if this is the correct place to post this...

https://www.logos.com/product/36749/biblia-hebraica-westmonasteriensis-with-westminster-hebrew-morphology-418

https://www.logos.com/product/27271/biblia-hebraica-stuttgartensia-with-werkgroep-informatica-vrije-universiteit-morphology

https://www.logos.com/product/17645/biblia-hebraica-stuttgartensia-sesb-20-version-with-apparatus-and-wivu-introduction

So I would like to know which one is a better and more trustable version between the BHS and BHW? Is the BHW the original one? Advantages of having one over the other?

Also can someone explain the uses for apparatus and advantages of having the BHS with apparatus over the one without?

thanks in advance!

Hugo

Hi Hugo ... welcome to the forums!

Each person probably has an opinion.  If I was starting out to learn hebrew (versus become familiar with it), I'd go with SESB 2.0. The hebrew is not the issue at the start (comparing products), but the learning-assist. SESB includes popup english glosses when you're really tired and your brain is fried. 4.18 doesn't.  I doubt you need WIVU morphology until maybe later, if ever.

Apparatus's (incorrect spelling) are fun, since they give you a flavor of the past ... differences in manuscripts and translations. SESB has several packages ... I always get the mostest apparatus's ... never a waste with SESB.

Logos also offers an interlinear .. some (most) recommend  'don't go there', for quicker learning.

Hi Hugo,

I agree with Denise on using the SESB 2.0. Another advantage is if you do go on and need to do anything with the German, the glosses will be there in popups in both English and German. This can also be useful as an additional translational help. BTW, I do have all the available Hebrew Bible versions from Logos, but like the overall functionality of the SESB and use it most often.

Lexham Hebrew-English Interlinear Bible (LHI) has Interlinear options (that include English Gloss and Translation):

  • Manuscript
  • Manuscript (Transliterated)
  • Hebrew Lemma
  • Hebrew Lemma (Transliterated)
  • Lexical Value
  • English Literal Translation
  • Morphology

Reader's Edition can hide Interlinear lines for Hebrew words that occur more than specified # of times:

Lexham Hebrew Bible with Morphology has participant tagging for use in Clause Search

Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia: SESB 2.0 Version with Apparatus and WIVU Introduction includes Constituency Trees.

Thread => How to search phrases in BHS with morphological sensitivity? includes some screen shots.

For learning Hebrew, suggest => Hebrew for Reading Comprehension that uses pointed and unpointed Hebrew.
