Dear Biblical Hebrew List Members,
 
In H. W. F. Gesenius, Gesenius's Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon to the Old
Testament, (Grand Rapids, Michigan: Baker Book House, 1979). Page 49,
Section 433, right column, first paragraph, Section B,
 
Gesenius makes reference to Lehrg. in the following statement. 
 
 "the plural noun elohim is used in a singular sense, of the one
almighty God, the plural form elohim, indicating God's majesty and
excellence, (compare as to the plural majestatis or excellentice, Lehrg.
Page 663, 664), Hebrew Grammar Section 106, 2, b) and is constructed
with a verb and adjective in the singular tense, (e.g. 2 Kings 19:4, 16;
Psalm 7:10, Psalm 57:3; Psalm 78:56, Genesis 1:1, 3 seq.)." 
 
However, unlike most other books which indicate what their abbreviations
mean, I have not been able to discover a list or key explaining
Gesenius's abbreviations, particularly who Lehrg. is.
 
Does anyone know who Lehrg. is, and the full reference, publisher, city
of publication etc. ?
 
Thank you.
 
Mr Engmann
