THIS PHONETIC PRONUNCIATION GUIDE is presented as simply that—a guide. It is not intended to be the last word about the only proper pronunciation for every word listed. The pronunciations included in this chart are those of American English, but some British variations are included. In some cases, the Hebrew or Greek pronunciations are included. The same English word may have acceptable pronunciations that vary from country to country, with regional variations often existing within the same country.

WORD column: The WORD heading in this chart includes a number of proper names, places, and other words found in various English Bible versions and translations. Words that are followed by an asterisk* are non-Biblical words found in Bible dictionaries and commentaries, Bible maps, Bible footnotes and marginal references, apocryphal books, historical and archaeological references, and religious literature. Examples:  acrostic*,  bas-relief*,  Coele-Syria*,  Epiphanes*,  exegesis*,  gregale*,  hieroglyphic*,  Koine*,  liturgy*,  Masada*,  Nero*,  ossuary*,  patriarch*,  sarcophagus*,  Tertullian*,  Tobit*,  Xerxes*.

NW & NOTES column: Bible words from the modern-language Bible, the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures—With References, 1984 Edition (NW), are shown as they appear in the main text. The divisions of syllables are included. These divisions are the same as those designed for the Revised Standard Version of 1952, in which the proper names are divided into syllables that are separated by dots or by accent marks ('). The accent marks follow the syllables on which major emphasis should be put when pronouncing the words. Examples:  Ca'naan,  Ep·i·cu·re'an,  Re·bek'ah. When the NW does not include syllable divisions, those from the Insight on the Scriptures Bible encyclopedia are included in brackets when available. Examples:  Aaron [Aar'on],  Caesar [Cae'sar],  Joshua [Josh'u·a],  onycha [on'y·cha],  papyrus [pa·py'rus],  Sadducees [Sad'du·cees],  shekel [shek'el],  Zion [Zi'on]. Clicking on the symbol (I) will link to the online copy of Insight on the Scriptures where these syllable divisions can be viewed and additional information about the word can be found. In addition, the NW & NOTES column sometimes contains other notes, such as comparison words from various Bible translations, word definitions, and other information of interest.

REFERENCE column: The REFERENCE heading in this chart usually includes at least one reference to illustrate usage for each word, either from the Bible if it is a Bible word, or from another publication if it is not a Bible word. Unless otherwise indicated, the scriptures are from the NW Translation. When a word is not found in the NW, but in one or more other Bible versions, the abbreviation for those versions is included. (See References below.) The numbers enclosed within parentheses following a scriptural reference refer to the numbers from Strong’s Hebrew/Chaldee and Greek Lexicons. Those preceded by the letter “h” refer to Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon number and the letter “g” to the Strong’s Greek Lexicon number. Examples: Lucifer (h1966);  Golgotha (g1115). In addition to Strong’s Hebrew and Greek Lexicons, these numbers can be used to look up words in other reference works such as The Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and English Lexicon;   Gesenius’ Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament;  Thayer’s A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament;   Vine's Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words; and the New Wilson's Old Testament Word Studies.

Strong’s numbers can be accessed online. Below are two Web sites I am aware of:

Hebrew Scriptures (“Old Testament”) lexicon numbers:

Christian Greek Scriptures (“New Testament”) lexicon numbers:

PHONETIC column: The phonetic pronunciations are derived from a number of sources (see Sources below). Sometimes the phonetic variations included are slight and are mainly a matter of how each particular reference divides the syllables or renders the vowel sounds. The resulting pronunciation is often the same or nearly the same. Examples:  Jezebel as JEH-zuh-bel', JEZ-uh-bel';  judicial as joo-DISH-uhl, -DIH-shuhl;  paraclete as PAIR-uh-kleet, PAR-uh-kleet'. When sources differ about the pronunciation or accent, I have included some or all variations. Examples:  Augustine as AW-guh-steen, aw-GUHS-tin;  cuneiform as kyoo-NEE-uh-form('), KYOO-n(ee-)uh-form;  Enlil as EN-lil, en-LIL;  Gaius as GAY-uhs('), -yuhs. The symbol (¶) links to a Web site where an audible pronunciation is available.

A word followed by an asterisk* indicates that the pronunciation is closest to the audio pronunciation in the Insight on the Scriptures on the Watchtower Library CD in English, and/or the audio pronunciation in the audio version of the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures, and/or the English audio versions of the Watchtower and Awake! magazines. Some variations in pronunciation may exist among these sources. (The non-audio text for the New World Translaton of the Holy Scriptures showing accented syllables and syllable divisions is available online at The audio version of the Bible and audio versions of The Watchtower and Awake! magazines can be downloaded from

Words that are commonly mispronounced are included along with the flag not and followed by a common mispronunciation. Examples of some commonly mispronounced words:   Ahasuerus,  apostatize,  Aquila,  covetous,  Darius,  Ebed-melech,  grievous,  Nabonidus,  propitiation,  translation,  Uzziah,  zealous. Mispronunciations can be traced to adding letters or syllables that are not there, to subtracting letters or syllables that are there, to pronouncing the vowel sounds incorrectly, and to putting stress on the wrong syllable or syllables.

The vowels, A, E, I, O, and U (and sometimes W and Y), and diphthongs have a wide range of sounds, which can vary slightly or greatly from country to country or even within a region or a city. Thus not all variations in vowel pronunciations are actual mispronunciations. Consonants are a little easier, but some consonants and consonant combinations (such as C, G, CH, and TH) have more than one sound in English, and the differences can lead to mispronouncing a word. Learning the basic rules of English phonics is a great help toward learning the proper pronunciation of many English words. (See NOTE about phonics in the References section below.) And don’t forget, a good dictionary is a great friend to cultivate!

  • The accent mark follows the syllable on which major emphasis should be put in pronouncing the word. Examples: Car'mel,  Mi·le'tus,  Phar'aoh.
  • If the accented syllable ends in a vowel, the vowel is long in its pronunciation. Examples:  De'mos,  O'bed,  Sy'char,  Ta'bor,  U'phaz.
  • If a syllable ends in a consonant, the vowel in that syllable is short in its pronunciation. Examples:  Der'be,  Om'ri,  Syr'tis,  Tam'muz,  Uz'zah.
  • When the two vowels a and i are combined, as in mor'de·cai and si'nai, the ai is pronounced simply as a long i.
  • The ch combination in names is pronounced hard, as k, except in Rachel, where c is soft, as in “cheer.” Examples: Chaldean is kal-DEE-uhn;  Melchizedek is mel-KIZ-uh-dek;  Antioch is AN-tee-ok.
  • Foreign words (Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, Latin, etc.) included in the Bible text or footnotes do not necessarily follow the above pronunciation rules. Examples:  a·ga'pe; ’a'leph;  pe’.

  • The syllable with the heaviest stress is CAPITALIZED. Examples:  Daniel = DAN-yuhl;  Pharaoh = FAIR-oh.
  • The syllable with the second heaviest stress is followed by an accent [ ' ] mark. Examples:  “Hananiah” = han'uh-NI-uh;  “Nicodemus” = nik'uh-DEE-muhs;  “xenophobia” = zeh'nuh-FOH-bee-uh.
  • Letters, syllables, or accent marks pronounced optionally are enclosed within (parentheses). Examples:  “Cassius” as KA-sh(ee-)uhs is either KA-shee-uhs or KA-shuhs;  “translation” as tran(t)s-LAY- shun is either trans-LAY-shun or trants-LAY-shun;  “Chinnereth” as KIN-uh-reth(') is either KIN-uh-reth' or KIN-uh-reth.

Do you have a Bible word, a Bible-related word, or a religious history word to suggest? This pronunciation chart is an ongoing project and will be updated with new words from time to time. Thanks to all of you who have suggested words; I have added the ones for which I could find the pronunciations. Sometimes, though, it is difficult to find the pronunciations, so any help readers can lend in this area will be greatly appreciated. Please see the list of words below, which is a partial list consisting mostly of proper names for which I have not yet found any pronunciations available.
