#2 - Strong's numbering and Strong's resources: How should they be used?

by Robert Nguyen Cramer

This BibleTexts website administrator has very much enjoyed questions and insights that have been emailed to him ever since this site was launched in September of 1996. On this page I share with BibleTexts browsers a few of the questions, insights, and responses, so that we all can further learn from and with each other.


Question/insight #2: I looked at that Strong's webpage []. Can you look up references from there? (10/22/97)

Answer #2: No, that site only lists and describes Strong's-based books and/or software that you may like to add to your Bible reference library. At the bottom of that Web page, I explain that the Hebrew and Greek dictionaries in Strong's concordance are often misused, which leads to an incorrect understanding of the Bible texts. Strong's is very helpful as a concordance, but not as a dictionary. The other books and software I describe on the "Strongs.html" Web page would be much more helpful as dictionaries, since they all include the Strong's numbering. Using them, you could read the KJV/Strong's text in the weekly Bible Lesson commentary and refer directly to your new dictionaries/lexicons to better understand what the Hebrew or Greek word behind the text was trying to say.
