Miklal Software Solutions Hebrew Bible (Tanakh) for nook and Kindle is a beautiful version of the Hebrew text. Everything is here: all of the consonants, vowels, accent marks, etc., making this a complete rendering of the Leningrad Codex. The Kindle version includes The Comprehensive Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic Glossary by Humphrey H. Hardy. This review covers the nook edition. The text is as nice as every Hebrew text published by Miklal Software Solutions, with crisp and clear fonts that are a joy to read. It compares really well with the printed Hebrew Bible. Navigation is similar to other MSS products, and includes several navigation options. The first three are standard to nook. The last two are unique and provide creative methods for navigating the nook. There is a table of contents with hyperlinks to each book of the Bible, following the English order of books. Once you choose a book, you are provided a list of chapters. Another option is to move the slider in order to navigate to a particular location. This also lets you see the books of the Bible in English order. This feature works really well. You can also search for a chapter by searching for a book name and chapter number (ex: Psalm 119). You can also use abbreviations to navigate directly to the verse you want. Just leave out the colon between the...Read More
Miklal Software Solutions The Comprehensive Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic Glossary for nook and Kindle contains both Hebrew and Aramaic dictionaries from Humphrey H. Hardy II. The format of the dictionary is superb. It is easy to navigate and text looks beautiful. Every Hebrew and Aramaic word that appears in the Bible is there. Definitions are taken from The Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament, The Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament by Ludwig Koehler and Walter Baumgartner, The Dictionary of Classical Hebrew, and more in order to present the best possible scholarship. Since a dictionary is not read linearly, MSS has gone to extremes to make navigation easy. There are several navigation options. The first is a table of contents with hyperlinks to each letter in the Hebrew and Aramaic alphabets. Selecting the letter provides the next level of screens, which provides two letters, narrowing down your choices. The second navigation method allows you to scroll through the letter you want to search in transliteration. This gives you a list of two-letter combinations to narrow down your search. The third navigation option allows you to move the slider in order to navigate to a particular location. These letters are also transliterated. The fourth method allows you to search for the transliterated word. Simply type ‘h’, a space, and the word in Hebrew and ‘a’,...Read More
Miklal Software Solutions Strong’s Greek and Hebrew Dictionary of the Bible for nook contains both Greek and Hebrew (with Aramaic) dictionaries by James Strong. The layout of the dictionary is superb. Each word is given in the original language, and then transliterated into English. Each word includes the Strong’s number, pronunciation, and definition. The fonts for both Hebrew and Greek are beautiful. Navigation is easy as there are various types of navigation provided. The first is a table of contents that first provides the Hebrew alphabet, then the Greek alphabet and the Strong’s numbers that are related to that letter. Selecting the letter provides the next level of screens, which provides two letters and the Strong’s numbers related to those numbers. Another way to navigate is by moving the slider to see letters with Strong’s numbers. Another type of navigation is done through hyperlinks within the text. You can click on the Strong’s numbers that are given in the definitions. If you know the Strong’s number you’re looking for, simply type the letter ‘g’ for Greek or ‘h’ for Hebrew and then Strong’s number. This will take you directly to the definition you want. You can also search for the transliterated word (ex: theos). Simply type g for Greek or h for Hebrew and the transliterated word in lower case with no symbols. For example, to find Theos type...Read More
