Format: Paperback
A truly amazing reference for any Hebrew student. This book lists _every single_ verb in the entire Hebrew Bible and breaks it down according to its aspects. I can't even imagine all the work that went into preparing this book -- but it certainly saved me a significant amount of time in my studies!

Format: Paperback
The toughest thing for beginners of Biblical Hebrew is not so much the syntax, but the morphology. This volume is what some experts may consider a "crutch"-an otherwise helpful book that can have serious repercussions on a beginner. A word of caution to beginners in reading BH: Do not purchase this book until you have had about 3 semesters or more of graduate-level biblical Hebrew. Why? Because this work, as I state above, can be a "crutch" to new-comers in that it parses every single verb and participle in the Hebrew OT, thereby giving the student instantaneous access to a skill that should probably be attained via arduous study. It will pay off in the long run to be able to parse a verb on one's own without this parsing tool. One reason I have it is for checking my work, and also for it's relatively quick one, sometimes two-word English definitions that accompany each entry. I recommend the book for those who have a firm grasp of reading Biblical Hebrew for its quick-reference capabilities, but I recommend it with some reservation for novices.

Worst book binding ever encountered Nov. 30 2009
By A Mature Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a fine reference for Hebrew Bible verb parsing, but the book binding is absolutely terrible. The book does not stay open and the pages fall off when one tries to keep it stay open. A new and better binding edition (possibly hard cover) is sorely needed because this book should serve as a lifelong companion to the Hebrew Bible for non-scholars to read the Old Testament in the original language. Rating of the book is the average of 5 (for the content) plus 1 (for binding) divided by 2 equaling 3 stars.

Addition to my previous comment.
Be aware, Buyers! I have contacted the publisher about the poor quality biding problem, and they don't care about the concern. You may be spending more money than bargained for, because of the problem, if you want to keep using the book - I did!

Valuable tool IF used for reference and research Dec 2 2012
By Jaroslav Melgr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This volume lists EVERY verb in the Hebrew Bible (the Old Testament) by book and by verse. The text used for this study is Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia(BHS), which is based on the Leningrad Codex. As such the book is a valuable tool for research and reference. There are software tools available nowadays, but generally speaking these are quite expensive. This book is certainly a good alternative, depending on the scope of study and the need.

Besides the usual table of contents, brief introduction and a list of abbreviations, all there is to the book is a long list of verbs. All 689 pages of them, listed in two columns per page. They are listed by the book, chapter and verse, the book order follows Holy Bible: King James Version (KJV) ordering. After listing the reference, the actual verb form in Hebrew is listed, followed by stem, tense, person/gender/number, root, suffix (if any), BDB page number (Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and English Lexicon), KB page number (Koehler-Baumgartner's The Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament, 2 volume set), and meaning. This is pretty much all you need when working with Hebrew verbs.

CAUTION
I'll repeat the same caution noted in my review of Davidson's The Analytical Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon, that this work isn't intended and shouldn't be used while reading the Hebrew text. If you're a beginning student, it could become too much of a crutch if you're not careful and actually hurt your ability to learn Hebrew. Perhaps you could use it to validate your parsing exercise once you've completed it or do word study, but avoid looking up works as you read. Doing so will make you be reliant on the book and not on your own skills and understanding of the language, grammar and syntax. I use this for work and syntactical studies, for example looking at the tense, mood, etc. used in a particular discourse, prophetic book (in case of minor prophets) or the like.

Old Testament Parsing Guide: Revised and Updated Edition July 26 2007
By Florence Kuek Chee Wee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The parsing of all OT verbs comes in handy with a parsing guide like this. Even though beginners should not over-depend on such tool when learning Biblical Hebrew, it is still good to have a well-printed book like this for easy reference.
Excellent Quick Reference Dec 6 2009
By LOTR Librarian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Geared for the bible college student or the seminarian, this resource will nonetheless be helpful for those brave souls teaching themselves Hebrew.

A one-volume update of the two volume edition, The purpose of the current edition is to provide a verse-by-verse parsing aid for every verb in the OT. Every verb form is listed in order of occurrence in the OT according to chapter and verse. Verbs that occur twice in a verse are parsed twice.

This tool is based on the Hebrew text in the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia.

A great time saver (and parsing checker) but do not use this as a crutch!
