AHLB: 2845 (c) Strong's: 7965944.Modern Hebrew WordFollowing the entry number is the Hebrew word written in theModern Hebrew script ( שׁלוֹם ָ ).Ancient Hebrew WordEach word is also written in the ancient pictographic script(mfls). In some cases, this spelling may be different than themodern script. As an example, the word ֹהל ֶ ( א #390) includesthe hholam vowel pointing (the dot above the alephrepresenting the "o" sound), but in most ancient documentsthis word is written as ( אוהל where the letter vav representsthe “o” sound) or lefa in the ancient script. In addition, thespelling of words evolve over time. For instance, the word בּוֹר 2

Introduction(#452, bor, a cistern) comes from the root ( כור kor) meaning"to dig a hole." Therefore, the ancient spelling of this wordwould have been rfk (kor).TransliterationA transliteration from Hebrew into Roman letters (sha-lom) isgiven to assist with the pronunciation of Hebrew nouns. Verbtransliterations will be represented by the consonants only.For instance, the transliteration for the Hebrew verb בדל (#20) is B.D.L.TranslationThis is one or two English words that best translate theHebrew word. In many cases, this translation will besignificantly different from what is found in other dictionaries.For instance, the word שׁלוֹם ָ is usually translated as "peace,"but this abstract idea does not completely convey the originalHebraic meaning of this word. In this dictionary, thetranslation of this word is “Completeness.” An index at theend of this book allows for a cross referencing from theEnglish translation to its corresponding entry within thisdictionary.DefinitionThis is a more specific meaning of the word which reflects itstextual and original Hebraic cultural perspective. As anexample, in our culture, the word "peace" means "a state ofmutual harmony between people or groups." However, inBiblical Hebrew, this word means "a state of being complete."3
