The SimHebrew Bible makes reading, searching, and learning the Hebrew Bible much easier for non-Hebrew readers. SimHebrew is an exact simulation of the fully spelled Hebrew text of the Bible. Readers of the Latin character set who are not versed in the square text will find both ease and pleasure in learning the Bible in its original tongue without any of the difficulties encountered when facing the traditional right-to-left text. The technique gives a true insight into the linguistic features of the Hebrew – in particular, its economy of language, wordplay, repetition of the same word in different contexts, and above all, the root structure of its words. This Bible also allows easy searching in both Hebrew and English including a full glossary and links to a corresponding online concordance. The combination makes both the Hebrew language and the translation decisions in the English guide fully transparent.
