Description of Strong's Classic Work
Strong's dictionary of Biblical Hebrew and Biblical Aramaic, like his concordance and dictionary of Biblical Greek, is a classic reference work for biblical studies and is accessible to the layperson. Each word in Biblical Hebrew and Biblical Aramaic is numbered, presented in Hebrew script and in transliteration and is accompanied by a pronunciation guide. Each word is defined, and the translation(s) of that word in the Authorized English Version are presented. Strong's work was originally published in 1890 under the title A Concise Dictionary of the Words in the Hebrew Bible; with their Renderings in the Authorized English Version. It was bound together with Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible.
Beautiful Hebrew in This E-Book
This digital edition of Strong's classic work is distinctive in not only presenting the Hebrew/Aramaic in Hebrew/Aramaic script but doing so using in an aesthetically pleasing manner that looks great on the Kindle. It also presents the transliteration beautifully.
Advanced Navigation Features in This E-Book
This digital edition of Strong's Hebrew Dictionary of the Bible recognizes that you do not generally read dictionaries linearly. As a result, there are multiple options provided for powerful and rapid navigation. Note that navigation details might be different in the various Kindle applications for platforms other than the Kindle itself.
First, when you click on Go to in the menu, you have the option of selecting Table of Contents. This Table of Contents provides hyperlinks to each letter of the dictionary along with the range of Strong's numbers for that letter. Clicking on a link to a letter provides a list of options for the first two letters of the word as well as the range of Strong's numbers for that letter combination. Once you click on the desired two-letter combination, you can flip the page to get to the desired entry if need be.
Second, when you are reading, clicking the 5-way controller to the right will advance you to the hyperlinked list for the next letter of the alphabet. Clicking the 5-way controller to the left does similarly.
Third, you can navigate directly to a particular glossary entry by clicking on Index in the menu and typing in the letter "h" followed by the Strong's number for that entry. For example, to navigate to the entry for Strong's #1234, simply type "h1234" into the text box and hit enter. This option is not available on first generation Kindles and might not be available on Kindle applications.
Fourth, you can navigate directly to a particular glossary entry by clicking on Index in the menu and typing in the Hebrew/Aramaic word using transliterated Hebrew, using just the consonants. Please note that the transliteration scheme for this navigation option is found in the table below and is different than Strong's transliteration scheme displayed in the e-book. This is so that all Hebrew consonants can be presented as single characters and adequately distinguished without diacritics. This option is intended for advanced users. For example, to navigate to the entry for Strong's #1121, ben, simply type "bn" after clicking on Index and hit enter. This will take you to the appropriate entry. This option is not available on first generation Kindles and might not be available on Kindle applications.

Miklal Software Solutions Strongs Hebrew Dictionary of the Bible for Kindle
By Randy A Brown
I recently reviewed Miklal Software Solutions Strong's Greek Dictionary of the Bible for Kindle, and I must say the Hebrew dictionary is just as impressive. Like their Strong's Greek Dictionary, Miklal Software Solutions Strong's Hebrew Dictionary of the Bible is also available for nook.
I've always said that Strong's dictionaries are must-have tools for Bible study. Miklal Software Solutions offers Strong's Hebrew Dictionary, a perfect complement to their Strong's Greek Dictionary, providing yet another must-have tool in e-book format.
Navigation is among the best on Kindle. Rather than being read in sequence, reference works such as this have a challenge in making navigation simple enough to make it useful. Like their Strong's Greek Dictionary, Miklal Software Solutions delivers again with their simple but powerful navigation system. The first is a table of contents that provides the Hebrew alphabet and the Strong's numbers for each letter. Selecting the letter provides the next level of screens, which provides two letters and the Strong's numbers related to those numbers. Another type of navigation is done through hyperlinks within the text. If you know the Strong's number you're looking for, simply type the letter `h' and the Strong's number. This will take you directly to the definition you want. You can also search for the transliterated word (ex: Elohim). Quick and easy.
Miklal Software Solutions has done an excellent job in developing Strong's Hebrew Dictionary of the Bible for Kindle. It is easy to navigate and the Hebrew text looks great. I recommend Strong's Hebrew Dictionary of the Bible for Kindle even if you don't have a Kindle, because it works great on the Kindle app. Along with MSS's Strong's Greek Dictionary, it's another must-own app for your Bible study needs.
Miklal Software Solutions provided this review copy for free. I was not required to give a positive review- only an honest review.

It works for me
By Anne P.
I typed in the word I was looking for and the short definition popped up. I clicked it and it went directly to the longer version of the word's definition. Exactly what I needed to write my papers for ordination.
