Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS) is known to be the definitive edition of the Hebrew Bible. It is widely regarded as a reliable edition of the Hebrew and Aramaic scriptures and is the most widely used original-language edition among scholars. It is a revision of the third edition of the Biblia Hebraica edited by Rudolf Kittel, the first Bible to be based on the Leningrad Codex. The Leningrad Codex is the oldest complete Hebrew Bible still preserved. It originally appeared in installments, from 1968 to 1976, with the first one-volume edition in 1977; it has since been reprinted many times. The text is a nearly exact copy of the Masoretic Text as recorded in the Leningrad Codex. The Masoretic notes are completely revised. Included is a foreword in German, English, French, Spanish and Latin as well as an English and German key to the Latin words, abbreviations and other symbols in the critical apparatus. Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS) Compact Edition is identical in content to the standard edition (including the critical apparatus in Latin and the foreword in multiple languages); however, its size makes it exceptionally convenient for the student of Hebrew to carry and use. Its portable size in no way compromises the readability of both text and critical apparatus, which retains a bold, clear font.

This edition of BHS is beautiful, hardcover with cream-colored pages, a ribbon marker, and a good size Hebrew font (with diacritics). Introduction is in German, Latin, English, French, and Spanish. Notes on each page give various information, including Greek examples from the Septuagint (my favorite part). The book although nice is not oversized, at about 7 1/4" X 5 1/4" or so, very convenient. If you are a student of Hebrew you will get your money's worth.

This product was much smaller than I expected it to be. No dimensions were offered on the Amazon shopping page but I ordered hoping that this edition of Biblia Hebraica would be a large enough book to allow for tranaslating between the lines. When it arrived, it was tiny! I was puzzled by a sticker on the back indicating that I had received the small version. I was not given a choice on amazon's website about whether I wanted a small or large edition of this book. I'd love to order a larger version from Amazon, but am not sure if they have them available.
The Essential Edition of the Hebrew Bible
By C. Mccreary "C. McCreary" - January 29, 2008
For students and scholars of the Old Testament and Biblical Hebrew, this book is essential for furthering one's personal knowledge and understanding. This is the revised Babylonian text of the Masoretes, considered to be the definitive and one of the more accurate collection of the OT Biblical texts, complete with accurate vowel pointing as well as various notes and study helps (Though you will need to know some Greek and Latin to be able fully utilize these). The text is rather easy to read with moderately sized font. As far as size and weight are considered, it is fairly light and comes in a small portable size. Now, here is the main catch: The binding appears to be very secure, but it is actually very prone to fall apart if not taken care of properly. Dropping it is not a good idea and if a person needs to carry it around in a back pack, make sure that it is placed securely so the spine will not be rendered crooked by other items in the bag(this will prove fatal for your BHS' cover... read more
