This book is essentially an enhanced dictionary that can also be used for these other purposes: 1: to determine the frequencies of word usage in the Tanakh ('Old' Testament). 2: to more easily compare words with similar spellings. 3: to discover the chapter number of each Bible chapter. 4: to discover verses in other chapters that link information with the chapter number that you are looking at. 5: to discover important information about a Bible chapter that you are looking at. 6: to compare all of the words that come from one single root, which can help us to better understand those word meanings and word usages. 7: to discover the relationship between the first usage of a word in the Bible and the sum of the root that that word belongs to. 8: to discover what Bible chapter a word root belongs to, and how that root meaning might interact with that Bible chapter. 9: to discover what the Hebrew name is of each Bible book. 10: to discover what root a word belongs to. 11: to discover roots that other dictionaries do not recognize. 12: to compare Biblical words with modern meanings in some important situations. 13: Find Arab words and roots that are closely related to their corresponding Hebrew root. 14: Find Hebrew words that are closely related to some Arabic words.

This edition of my Hebrew dictionary was formerly called 'Biblical Hebrew Gematria Root Dictionary'. This version fine tunes this 'dictionary', and has added additional Arabic words that are closely related to their corresponding Hebrew Root. This is what I call an Enhanced Dictionary, meaning that it adds much more information than just word definitions.

The main thing that this 'dictionary' lacks that other 'dictionaries' might have is the verse locations of each place a word is used in. This is common with Concordances of the Bible. Because it would increase the size of this book by more than a 1000 pages, and the time it would take to list each word location, I have decided to not include concordance information in this dictionary, even though that would be something I would have wanted to do if I had the time and patience to do it. The names of people or places are usually not going to be listed in this dictionary which is root centered, because they are redundant in the sense that names have meanings based on the roots of the words that make up the name. Essentially, names are just transliterations and if you know what the roots already mean, you already know what the name means.

Table of Contents
There are no chapters, just entries for each Bible chapter number from 1 to 1189 where roots go. There are bookmarks for each Bible Chapter of the bible in this book. Each bookmark also lists the numbers of the chapters so that you can just look at the numbers in the bookmarks to quickly jump to the closest number to the root you are looking for.
