Hebrew is an old Semitic language in use from around 2000 BC. The Old Testament of the Bible was written in Classical Hebrew, which was later replaced gradually by Aramaic and various dialects after the Babylonian exile of the Jews in the 6th century BC. Modern Hebrew was revived in the 19th century as the official language of Israel.
