The first edition in the modern series of Biblia Hebraica (BHK1) appeared at Leipzig in 1906 as the new century was getting under way. Throughout the century new editions of Biblia Hebraica have appeared, each retaining the basic structure of the original edition, but introducing changes as warranted by developments in text critical study. A second edition (BHK2), differing from the first only in minor corrections, was published in 1913, also at Leipzig.

The third edition (BHK3) appeared in 1929-1937 at Stuttgart, and introduced major changes: a new base text, reproducing the text of the Leningrad Codex rather than the 1524-1525 Bomberg edition of Jacob ben Hayyim; and an entirely new apparatus. Biblica Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS, 1967-1997), the fourth edition in the series, followed BHK3 in using the Leningrad codex as the base text, but introduced a new presentation of the manuscript's Masorah, as well as a new apparatus.
