All the Hebrew words of the Bible are connected to their roots and defined within their ancient cultural context and meaning.

All previous Biblical Hebrew lexicons have provided a modern western definition and perspective to Hebrew roots and words. This prevents the reader of the Bible from seeing the ancient authors original intent of the passages. This is the first Biblical Hebrew lexicon that defines each Hebrew word within its original Ancient Hebrew cultural meaning. One of the major differences between the Modern Western mind and the Ancient Hebrew's is that their mind related all words and their meanings to a concrete concept. For instance, the Hebrew word "chai" is normally translated as "life", a western abstract meaning, but the original Hebrew concrete meaning of this word is the "stomach". In the Ancient Hebrew mind, a full stomach is a sign of a full "life". The Hebrew language is a root system oriented language and the lexicon is divided into sections reflecting this root system. Each word of the Hebrew Bible is grouped within its roots and is defined according to its original ancient cultural meaning. Also included in each word entry is its alternative spellings, King James translations of the word and Strong's number. Indexes are included to assist with finding a word within the lexicon according to its spelling, definition, King James translation or Strong's number.

What's New in Version 1.0 (See full changelog)

  • Uploaded Mac/e-sword 11 version.

Jeff A. Benner is truly an awesome scholar of ancient Hebrew. This lexicon makes a needed contribution to  understanding the deeper original meaning of the raw elemental paleo-Hebrew. I purchased a hard copy of this title and it has proven to be most enlightening. As a lover of biblical languages study, it has been a complete blessing nor will you be discouraged with it either!  Strong's for 'paleo', a language of Moses' time!


Thank you David, Josh and eSword/Bible Support. Blessings and peace be yours always in Y'shua our Redeemer and King.

Where are the fonts?



On the Download page you will find the fonts they are zipped so you need to unzip to your fonts folder then restart e-Sword

Does this version includes the Rev # 2 of the AHLB on Jeff Benner's webpage ?

The fonts are jumbled and are funny: Skulls and triangles and such.

I do have windows 10. Would that have anything to do with it?

I will submit a photo

How do I upload a photo?

Hi John,

The AHLB require special fonts for the Ancient Hebrew. These fonts should be a part of the installation package. The fonts you require are:

  • bsthebre.ttf

  • olbheb.ttf

  • semear.ttf

  • semlate.ttf

  • semmid.ttf

These fonts should be installed in your C:\Windows\fonts folder. So, it might just pay you to check out if these fonts have been installed. If not, send me a message with your email address, and I'll email them to you in a zip package.




I'm experiencing the same thing with the fonts not showing up, yet they appear to be installed in my windows font folder.  
Any one have a solution to this issue?  I too am on Windows 10.
