The Resource Guide is the most powerful feature in the Olive Tree Bible App. As you read your Bible in the main window, the Resource Guide follows along and displays relevant Bible study information from your study notes, commentaries, maps and more.
This is so much more than a traditional dictionary. While you're reading the Bible, the Resource Guide will pull up articles from this dictionary. You can also select words in the text and tap "Look Up" to access relevant information in a pop-up window.
Did your resource mention a passage of Scripture, but you can't remember what the verse says? Never fear! Tap the linked verse and a pop-up window will appear, giving you quick and easy access to the verse in context.
Available for: iPad, iPhone, Android, Kindle Fire, Mac, and Windows Desktop, running app version 5.9 and above.
Learning biblical Hebrew can be a challenging prospect. Having a tool to aid in understanding the original Hebrew, without a scholar's commitment to complete knowledge of this ancient language, can draw you more easily into the ancient world of the Old Testament. More immersive than a Strong's Bible, Olive Tree’s ESV Hebrew-English Interlinear Old Testament can bring you closer to the ancient individuals and events that shaped the people of God — without requiring years of study.
The ESV Hebrew-English Interlinear Old Testament gives you in-depth study tools at your fingertips. The Hebrew text on the top line is matched with a basic English translation and the related Strong’s number below. The ESV Bible verse is then shown in its entirety with embedded Strong's links. This layout will enable you to quickly understand translator decisions by comparing the Hebrew to the ESV translation.
Olive Tree’s ESV Hebrew-English Interlinear Old Testament text follows the order of the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS), but provides English glosses based on the ESV translation for the same verse. Since the ESV provides a word for word rendering of the text as much as possible, most words in the Hebrew text will have a corresponding gloss from the ESV. This allows readers to see how the Hebrew text and the English translation line up on a word by word basis.
About the Translations:
The Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS) is the most widely used scholarly text of the Hebrew Bible. This text was originally edited by Karl Elliger and Wilhelm Rudolph in cooperation with numerous other scholars, and the revised 5th edition from 1997 was prepared by Adrian Schenker. It is based on the St. Petersburg Public Library manuscript B19a (known as the Leningrad Codex).
The translators of the English Standard Version have attempted to write what is, as much as possible, a “word for word” rendering of the text. The translators view their work as a continuation in a long line of solid, true, and beautiful English versions of the Bible, beginning with the New Testament of William Tyndale in 1526. They have labored to preserve the enduring language of their predecessors in a Bible version that is true to every God-breathed word of Scripture.
