Biblical Studies Guide: Biblical Languages

A guide to researching topics in the field of Biblical Studies

Language Tools

  • Bible Web App 
    Developed by Digital Bible Society, the Bible Web App offers researchers the opportunity to view parallel versions of the Bible in English with  Greek  (Tisch) and Hebrew (WLC), including parsings, morphology, and lemma. While not nearly as powerful as desktop software for Greek study, this free tool can be useful.


  • Semantic Dictionary of Biblical Hebrew 
    SDBH is created and maintained by the United Bible Societies. Its aim is to build a new dictionary of biblical Hebrew that is based on semantic domains, comparable to Louw & Nida's Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament (1989). Several Hebrew scholars from various parts of the world serve as contributors, with Dr. Reinier de Blois serving as editor.
  • Ancient Hebrew Research Center 
    A resource for those interest in the ancient Hebrew alphabet, philosophy, and culture. 
  • History of the Hebrew Language 
    A site dedicated to all things related to the history of the Hebrew Language. The site also includes a comparative essay on the similarities and differences between Semitic languages. 


  • Perseus Word Study Tool 
    The Perseus Word Study Tool offers users both multiple lexical resources as well as word frequency statistics of its massive corpus of Greek works. Highly recommended by faculty.
    The project is a web-based initiative to develop annotated Greek texts and tools for their analysis. The projects aims to both serve, and to collaborate with, the scholarly community.
  • Greek Dictionary 
    An online, fully searchable version of the Liddell-Scott-Jones Greek-English Lexicon, from Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (TLG); faculty recommend the Perseus Word Study Tool over the TLG. 


The land on which United Lutheran Seminary sits, and which stretches between its two campuses, is tribal land, inhabited originally by the Lenni Lenape, the Susquehannock, and the Seneca tribes. We honor those original caretakers of this land, and we pay respect to the original inhabitants of what we now call Pennsylvania. Acknowledging this history is consistent with the seminary’s commitment to welcome and equity, which calls us in Christ to repentance, reconciliation, and wholeness. Even though the sad history of colonization cannot be undone, this land acknowledgement is one small way for us to remember what happened here, to understand our part in this story, and to develop a more healthy relationship with the land and its original inhabitants.
