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 these words.

Please select the first letter from the blue links at the top of this page to begin. Or use the list of words below.
