Dictionary Of the Proper Names of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, being and Accurate and Literal Translation from the Original Tongues
“There are about 3500 words in the Bible that most of us can’t understand because their meaning is not translated into English. These are biblical names. Yet 2 Timothy 3:16 says that “all Scripture” or “every Scripture” is given by inspiration and is profitable. Therefore, we can gain profitable spiritual truth and instruction from these names, although the reason for some names is not immediately obvious. Some are much clearer, such as Timothy, meaning “honoring God.” He certainly honored God from his youth, up. This scholarly dictionary by James Beaumont Jackson was first published in 1909 after eleven years of hard work.”-Introduction. From Aaron to Zuriel, this simple yet valuable resource will inform the study of the bible.
