Great concordance

I have searched for a great concordance and not one met my expectations. I spent time and funds for one that will give me correct data of the Bible. This is it.

This is in excellent shape.

Lost all in a house fire so was excited to be able to replace some books at reasonable prices!

Always a Standard for Study

I use a Nestle-Aland Greek New Testament, Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia, several lexicons, and have studied the Biblical languages very intently and intensively for many years. I even have 3 Strong's Concordances on my computer. Yet, to this day, there is still really nothing like sitting down to a personal study or preparing for a message with my old leather Bible, the language texts, and a Strong's Exhaustive Concordance. Stong's is still a standard for study. And though my ALS sometimes keeps me from opening the pages as quickly, I still love the feel of the big book in my hands and on top of my desk when I'm cross-referencing the Scriptures and finding the fullest understanding to the use of words in the various texts. The serious Bible student's library without a Strong's Exhaustive Concordance is wanting.

I'm sorry I waited so long

If you don't own/use a full reference size concordance currently, please read this. I didn't own or use one of these until I was in my 40's. Big mistake! As another reviewer suggested, you should buy one of these right after you purchase your Bible. Incorporating a comprehensive concordance into your bible study will revolutionize the whole experience for you. If you don't own one of these, buy one. Functions: In its most basic usage, the concordance allows you to select any word in your Bible, and see what that original word was in Hebrew or Greek, and what it means in that language. Another basic function, the concordance will allow you to select a word and locate every place in the Bible where that word is used. Very handy for locating a chapter/verse that you can't fully recall. For example by looking up "begotten", or "world", or "loved" . . . you could quickly find John 3:16 (I usually use a palm-sized Franklin Electronic Bible for this purpose). There are myriad other things you can do with a concordance as you become familiar with it. An important idea in my opinion --- as it is stated within Scripture that they were given by inspiration of God, thus, it is widely held that they are without error (when this statement was penned by the Apostle Paul, he was directly referring to the Hebrew scriptures, or, "Old Testament"). However, would you believe that ALL (including the KJV) English translations contain erroneous, or just sometimes ambiguous or weak, word translations? There are a variety of reasons for this and the mistakes or weaknesses were not necessarily inserted with evil intent. For example, would you argue that the thousands of new bibles that we are shipping overseas now days in the Chinese or Arabic tongue are translated perfectly, clearly, and without error, by holy inspiration of God? Probably not, but they are GOOD ENOUGH and will serve their purpose well. Well, the same is true of your KJV (shocking, huh?). But the Strong's helps, both with sorting out error and just simply understanding original language intent and meaning. The Strong's (we use the Strong's Exhaustive Concordance edition) seems to be the gold standard in this area of publication. Many study bibles and reference publications include cross references to Strong's numbering system. I own a huge Young's Concordance, and even that publication includes cross references to Strong's numbers. A couple of additional comments: 1. If you are not familiar with using a full reference size concordance, don't be put off by fear . . . Strong's is very easy to use and you can literally open it up, thumb around in it, and become "self-taught" in minutes. 2. If you have a teenager (or even younger) in your home, buy them one of these and show them how to use it. A child's quick mind will easily make an enjoyable game out of word transalations, no? All of the concordances that I own are referenced to the King James Version bible translation. I am not

FANTASTIC!

Any bible student will love having this fantastic concordance.I learned so much from being able to cross reference all partsof the Old and New Testament to my hearts desire, in 3 ancientlanguages. It's easy to use, it is absolutely comprehensive, andI know I learned more about the Bible in a year than some peoplewho have studied the Bible for 20 years. Even if you just havea proud home library of reference books, this should be in it.

The most valuable tool for any serious Bible student.

The Strongs Exhaustive Concordance is an excellent tool for any scholar of God's Word. Every word used in the King James 1611 Is numbered, giving you a fast and easy meaning of how a word is used in the Greek, Hebrew and Chaldee languages. This large book contains a Topical index to the Bible, with easy to read print. Find out how exciting it is to study the Bible with this tool. It will make your study fun and educational. Dr. James Strong spent more than thirty-five years preparing this concordance. First published in 1890, this tool is still used today by pastors, scholars and laymen alike for nearly a century. If you are Christian or a skeptical linguist, I would "Strongly" recommend this concordance.
