The purpose of this page is to resource you to check out anything that is claimed on this site.
Whether it is a different bible version or the language the Scripture text was originally written in and what these words mean, below are links to sites that give you access to the means that enable you to see, just like the Bereans "whether these things were so" (Acts 17:11).
Bible Gateway is a site that gives access online to the majority of bible versions. The link brings you straight into the choice of versions available. I recommend then clicking on the TEXT section to the right of the version you want to look at and this brings you to the index of all the bible books and all the chapters.
STRONG's is an amazing piece of kit. Before the days of the internet and computers, Strong's was one of the fastest way in the printed form to find a passage you knew about just by remembering just one word in the verse. Also any study of a word enabled you to find wherever that word is found in the bible.
However Strong's was first assembled with the KJV in mind so if the verse you are familiar with is in another version you may need to consider comparing with how it is worded in the KJV first, but here's a trick with this site: Type in any word in the first search box, then click on search. The next window that comes up THEN gives you the option to choose which version of the bible you want the search to occur in. So choose the version and ask with the word you remember.
Once you know the word you wish to investigate in that version. Check up that same verse in BIBLE GATEWAY to find the equivalent word in the KJV version. Then go back to STRONG and against that word will be given a number (in the KJV search). If you click on that number a whole new page will come up to tell you not only how it has been translated in the KJV, that is, any other words if any, and how often this original language word comes up.
YOUNG is also amazing, however this is not a full online resource and just access to the original pages of the printed work of Robert Young.
It is another complete concordance of words in the KJV. It is somewhat different from STRONG in that it is an ANALYTICAL Concordance.
Especially useful are the back pages that provide you an instant look at what the Hebrew word or the Greek word is represented in the KJV: both the Hebrew and Greek words represented in Anglicised form. The layout inside involves a recognition of the different Hebrew or Greek words for an English word. So that the source word associated with the translation is instantly fully listed.
This enables you to see the Greek words in their declensions and in the order they appear in the New Testament in parallel with the English.
This enables you to see the Hebrew words in the Old Testament in parallel with the English.
This site gives you access to the translation - the version of the bible Jesus and the apostles quoted in the New Testament. See my chapter on this here under the sub-heading "The Septuagint" where I quote various New Testament passages to show they came from the LXX.
The Septuagint is immensely valuable therefore to obtain flavour for words used in the New Testament, especially if that differs from the current lexicons. It is thus an important source text to understand the very language the New Testament was written in. It also serves to understand things written by the apostles with the version of the LXX in mind, and not the Hebrew from which our Old Testament bible portions are translated from, (Genesis 3:16 a case in point: link to a text about this, as mentioned by Paul in 1 Corinthians 14:34).
To further help in locating passages in the LXX that differ from the arrangement in today's bibles here are two links to help find passages in:
This may be the only online freely accessible concordance to Greek words in the Septuagint (LXX). All my work in regards to Greek words in the LXX has been based on George Morrish's (1814-1911) Concordance. It is good to see there is one condordance of the LXX useable online now (since December 2014). This one also encompasses all the apocryphal books and both the bible references and the differing chapter and verse positions as found in the LXX (Morrish's sticks to the later bible references and only the Scripture).
You have to use your own electronic device or computer zooming facilities to search, but well worth it.
This is the version of the LXX available from the British Library and from bookshops by Hendrickson Publishers. It is not very online user friendly and consists of images of each page. It is useful to check any work put together from this standard version of the LXX.
Another version of the LXX than above. This interlinear is similar in most places and enables you to analyse using Strong numbers and related links what you find in the LXX.
This enables you to enter in English, or by copy and paste: a Greek word as found, to then analyse what the root of the word is and other useful things.
