It indexes every word of the King James Version, including articles, conjunctions, and prepositions. Not one word has been left out.
This handbook-sized edition of The New Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance gives you the in-depth reference information you want-wherever you need it: in class, at Bible study, or at home. Join the millions who regularly turn to Strong’s to look up a verse or discover the Hebrew or Greek word behind an important bible term. The New Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance in a new size for extra value!
The New Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible is nothing short of exhaustive. Weighing in at nearly six pounds, this research tool is the revised edition of the legendary classic that generations have come to depend on for biblical research. Nothing has been omitted from the original text published in 1890, but new supplementary material such as “The Laws of the Bible,” “Teaching and Illustrations of Christ,” and a “Harmony of the Gospels” has been added and existing material has been updated and improved. The “Topical Index” references thousands of verses relating to over 8,000 biblical subjects, names, places, things, concepts, events, and doctrines. In this main section of the concordance, scripture references are placed between a context line and the reference to either the Hebrew or Greek dictionary, making it easier to access all the features of the concordance at once. The most useful improvement is that variant spellings of proper names from modern versions have been cross-referenced. For instance, the person who uses the Revised Standard Version, the New International Version, or the New American Standard Version of the Bible can look up the modern word Abronah, which appears in these versions, and will be directed to Ebronah, the New King James spelling. A computer-generated typesetting, an obvious update from the first version, reads easily and provides design and format improvements. Any biblically based library would be incomplete without this indispensable edition. –Jill Heatherly
What's in a name?
When I first decided that God was real and that he was the God of the Bible, I decided I was going to read the Bible – cover to cover. The Bible I had didn’t have any notes and I had no idea what it was all about. I remember getting to what I call the begats and just throwing up my hands, not knowing what I was supposed to learn from that. I can remember giving up on that part in frustration.
Fast forward a few years and when I saw “ 2Ti 3:16 All scriptures is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. “ I remembered wondering about the begats & what on earth was I supposed to get out of that…
Fast forward a few years and I got interested in the Hebrew language and how interesting it was that each of the letters didn’t just have a sound, but also had meanings and ideas behind them. I picked up a book that went through letter by letter. And it turns out the letter “hei‘ or “hey“ in the paleo Hebrew looked like a window and meant to reveal. Its sound is “heh” like a breath of air, and it also can mean spirit and the creative force. When God breathed into Adam, he gave him the “hey“. So God called changed Abram to Abraham. Sari he changed to Sarah. Both of these names have the “hey” added to them. He changed their names adding the breath of God, or revealed himself to them by giving them the covenant and it changed their lives. How cool is that?
I read somewhere that if you are stumped by Gods word, you should write it all down and pray about it and God will bring an answer, and when you get that answer write it down too, and it will be a record of your walk and of God’s faithfulness.
So back to the begats. Adam begat Seth, Seth begat Enosh… If you take the first ten generations and look up the Hebrew roots of those names, you find an amazing thing… Take a look.
Here are the names in order: Adam, Seth, Enosh, Kenan, Mahalal’el, Jared, Enoch, Methusaleh, Lamech, Noah. Here are the meanings: Man, appointed, mortal, sorrow, the Blessed God, shall come down, teaching, his death shall bring , despairing, rest. God is amazing! So there you have a golden nugget tucked into the begats.
I wish I could take credit for finding that, but I found it in a book called “Through the Bible in 24 hours” by Chuck Missler. The skeptic in me did run to esword and check out all the Hebrew roots with a Strongs concordance though.
So I am trying to design my new jewelry line to incorporate some of these amazing golden nuggets I have found over the years, and this is the “What’s in a name?” bracelet because “Begats” just didn’t sound to good… Each of the tags has the name and root meaning stamped into it. I loved adding the polymer gears to symbolize the inner workings of God’s plan from the beginning.
