Hendrickson Publishers Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia, paperback edition

Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS) is known to be the definitive edition of the Hebrew Bible. It is a revision of the third edition of the Biblia Hebraica edited by Rudolf Kittel, the first Bible to be based on the Leningrad Codex. The Leningrad Codex is the oldest complete Hebrew Bible still preserved. It originally appeared in installments, from 1968 to 1976, with the first one-volume edition in 1977; it has since been reprinted many times. The text is a nearly exact copy of the Masoretic Text as recorded in the Leningrad Codex. The Masoretic notes are completely revised. Included is a foreword in German, English, French, Spanish and Latin as well as an English and German key to the Latin words, abbreviations and other symbols in the critical apparatus.

The Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS) Paperback Edition offers you a more affordable way to study Biblical Hebrew while maintaining all of the features available in the standard and compact editions.

This Hebrew Bible is a great value and the book is very well manufactured. You should be aware that this is a small book with small characters. The printing and the font type are both sharp and clear, but you need the capacity to see fine print well, which is so important with the vowel points of Hebrew. (If you struggle to see small print you might try the full-sized Hebrew Bible instead. It, too is excellently constructed but with somewhat larger type and therefore easier to see.)

It holds the Word in original, an excellent for all levels of reading and study for anyone who is not Hebrew and wanting to do a portion of their biblical study in the language.
