Ouisie5 Stars Out Of 5Old Mr WebsterFebruary 17, 2020OuisieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a great dictionary from old Mr. Webster; I'm truly enjoying it. It's a little different format than we're used to with our modern dictionaries, but a format to which one can readily adjust. I like to use it along with a modern dictionary to get a better understanding of how we arrived at current word usage. It's also an excellent dictionary to use for Bible study.
June Cunningham5 Stars Out Of 5Websters 1828 DictionaryJanuary 17, 2020June CunninghamI am very pleased with this dictionary! Our words and language have changed dramatically. This book is a great aid in reading and understanding scripture. I love the Bible quotes included in the definitions.
282Mikado4 Stars Out Of 5Careful if this is a giftDecember 22, 2019282MikadoQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4The actual dictionary is great! No issues there. How it arrived is where I have an issue. I bought this as a gift for my wife and it was delivered in a box that had WEBSTER'S 1828 boldly printed on the side of the box. No hiding that. Needless to say, my wife opened this present early because she already knew what it was. Sure would be nice if Christianbook understood that some of their stuff may be bought as a gift for someone in the same house as the shipping address.

Debbie G5 Stars Out Of 5TREASURE. . .October 20, 2018Debbie GQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I had been wanting this dictionary for over a year when I first learned about etymology and then stumbled upon this 1828 Noah Webster's dictionary. I loved it because I believe the meaning of words are very important and also because for most words this dictionary and etymology online dictionary brings us back to the Origin which is the God of the Bible. It's amazing to look up words and have bible passages as reference. If only this was mandatory in society where people could not IGNORE God, they would always be confronted with Him and have to choose /acknowledge Him. I believe its the enemy who works in the hearts of man to erase God.
Another benefit of this dictionary is seeing the origin of intent of words and not the watered down false deception definitions like today which are reflected in this godless / sin laden society. an example is marriage.
1828 Webster Dictionary definition:
MAR'RIAGE, noun [Latin mas, maris.] The act of uniting a man and woman for life; wedlock; the legal union of a man and woman for life. marriage is a contract both civil and religious, by which the parties engage to live together in mutual affection and fidelity, till death shall separate them. marriage was instituted by God himself for the purpose of preventing the promiscuous intercourse of the sexes, for promoting domestic felicity, and for securing the maintenance and education of children.
Modern google definition:
noun: marriage; plural noun: marriages
the legally or formally recognized union of two people as partners in a personal relationship (historically and in some jurisdictions specifically a union between a man and a woman).
"a happy marriage"
synonyms: wedding, wedding ceremony, marriage ceremony, nuptials, union
"the marriage took place at St. Margaret's"
antonyms: divorce, separation
the state of being married.
"they were celebrating 50 years of marriage"
synonyms: (holy) matrimony, wedlock
"a proposal of marriage"
It may be subtle for those who do not pay attention, but marriage is created for MALE AND FEMALE not just "two people" as the modern dictionary would have society believe. Homosexual unions are not marriages in the eyes of God and are blasphemous.
It's definitely a real good study tool and worth the price. I got mine from Amazon.CA cause I live in Canada and it was on sale in March 2018 but so pleased I did. Its HUGE, so def. a stay at home dictionary.
It is worth it. buy it and may God bless studies done in His Name :)
