About this Bible Dictionary
The EasyEnglish project is writing a simple Bible
translation. We have also written Bible Commentaries on many
books of the Bible. All our books are available to download
free of charge from this website. We use simple English for all
our books, although the theology is often at an advanced level.
We use a 1200 word vocabulary for our Bible translations, and a
2800 word vocabulary for our Commentaries.
Our authors often need to explain Bible words as they write
their books. They usually explain these words in a Word List at
the end of the book. We have collected about 800 of these
definitions to make this Bible Dictionary. So you can find
simple meanings for 800 different Bible words from these pages.
For the most important words, we have several different
definitions, because several EasyEnglish authors have explained
