What is the Hebrew translation for 'Biblical Children'?

There is no Hebrew word that means "Biblical". The Jewish scriptures are identified in Hebrew by an acronym: Tanakh (תנ״ך) Which just stands for the three parts of the Hebrew Bible (Torah, Neviim, Ktuvim). In Modern Hebrew, you can take this acronym and turn it into an adjective: Tanachee (תנכי). So a modern Hebrew phrase for Biblical children could be: baneem Tanacheem ( בנים תנכים)
