How do I use the Bible Dictionary?
The Bible dictionary has an auto-complete function that turns red if the letters typed so far do not match any of the words in the dictionary with the same starting letters. This is the quickest way to find a word.
If you are not sure how a word is spelled, the other option is to select from the letter blocks to browse all the words in the dictionary that start with that letter.
How do I use the Bible Concordance?
The concordance is an alphabetical index of all the words in the original language manuscripts from the Bible. In the concordance, each word from the King James Bible is displayed in the line of the verse in which it is contained. This will help you find and compare the words and phrases within any verse.
To get the verse list, you can select a starting letter and select from a word list or search for the word directly.
Once you see the list of verses appear:
- Click on the verse reference to see the verse in the context of the Bible
- Click on the Strongs Number to see the meaning of the word in the Greek English or Hebrew-English lexicons.
- Click on the downward facing encircled arrow to expand the whole verse, and click again to retract the verse.
To learn more about Strongs Numbers there is an article in the Kings Bible Library.
How do I use the Bible Atlas?
