Free Biblical Hebrew grammar books and dictionaries
For anyone who also wants to learn 'Biblical' Hebrew while also learning Modern or Contemporary Hebrew, There is a website that can help for free. At the website below, you can download a free book about learning Biblical Hebrew (Learning Hebrew from Genesis), and a dictionary (Counting Roots). There will be two more books finished this year. One is a Modern Hebrew to Biblical Hebrew comparison, and a book that will list words in order of their Biblical usage frequencies (based on root families). The website has religious books and themes on it, so if you want to avoid religious books or topics than maybe skip this link: https://learn-hebrew-from-genesis.weebly.com/
Thank you so much! I have been taking a very basic Hebrew course at a local synagogue, and am looking for my next steps. This looks like it might be a huge help.
You're welcome :) I hope it helps. The grammar book is a first edition release so if you find any English errors in the book you can help by leaving a comment on the website.
That's almost funny to think someone would manage to learn "biblical hebrew"from a website. here in israel we learn it from first grade till 12th and most still are having hard time to understand it.
Edit: and we all clearly already know hebrew !
As the sacred language of the word of God we have a great desire to learn and understand it.

Why are you being so negative and arrogant about my post? Do you want to personally come to our houses to teach us Biblical Hebrew? I didn't think so. For those of us who do not have a teacher that we can go to in person, a book and website might be all that we have for a good long while. Just because it takes time and dedication to learn Biblical Hebrew, it is not impossible, especially with the help of God. So is it that we have no right to learn Biblical Hebrew unless if it is from somebody in person in Israel? What am I supposed to get out of your post here? In the future I suggest that you bring positive statements to people in these forums instead of being overly critical and arrogant. Thanks for any civil and reasonable reply you might have.
