Learning the original languages of the Bible can be a difficult task. It takes years of study and countless hours of practice before you reach the point of reading without the help of additional resources. Unless your aim is to be a New or Old Testament scholar, most will not achieve that level of comfort with the original language texts. That doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from using the Greek and Hebrew Testaments in your studies. Whether you’re someone who can read these languages proficiently or have only ever used a Strong’s Bible, Olive Tree’s ESV Greek-English & Hebrew-English Interlinear is here to meet your needs.

The ESV Greek-English & Hebrew-English Interlinear makes it easy to perform in-depth original language word study by putting everything you need at your fingertips.
It combines the benefits of the four great resources in one dynamic package:
NA28 with Mounce’s Parsings
ESV with Strong’s
Hebrew Bible: Westminster Leningrad Codex
In the New Testament, quickly view the Greek text and tap on any word to view its parsing and definition. This allows users to quickly look up fuller meanings of words in the Olive Tree Enhanced Strong’s Dictionary, which is bundled with this resource. From the same pop-up quickly search and find everywhere the word appears in the New Testament. Below the Greek text you’ll find a basic English translation and the related Strong’s number. The last line of text in the Greek-English interlinear is the text of the ESV Bible, which is also linked to the Strong’s data.
The Old Testament interlinear provides similar in-depth study tools at your fingertips. The Hebrew text on the top line is matched with the appropriate lemma in the 2nd line, followed on lines 3 and 4 with a basic English translation and the related Strong’s number. As with the New Testament, the ESV Bible verse is then shown in its entirety with embedded Strong's links.
With the ESV Greek-English & Hebrew-English Interlinear you can see at a glance how translators made their translation decisions by comparing the original language and its glosses to the ESV translation.
Olive Tree’s ESV Greek-English & Hebrew-English Interlinear follows the order of the included Greek and Hebrew texts. Since the ESV provides a word for word rendering of the text as much as possible, most original language words will have a corresponding gloss from the ESV. This allows readers to see how the Greek and Hebrew texts line up with the English on a word by word basis.
About the Translations:
The Hebrew Bible: Westminster Leningrad Codex is a project of the Groves Center based on the Leningrad Codex, Firkovich B19A, residing in the Russian National Library. The Leningrad Codex is the oldest complete manuscript of the Hebrew Bible, dated to around 1008 AD. It serves as the basis for the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS).
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.
