An Interpreting Dictionary of Scripture Proper Names

Showing the Meaning of Nearly All the Names of Persons and Places in the Bible

It should be observed that there is uncertainty about the derivation of some of some words in Hebrew,
so that some of the following names may have either of several meanings.
There are also some whose meaning, from a variety of circumstances, are altogether obscure or uncertain.
These are omitted from this dictionary.
