Looking up Uses of the Word in the OT & NT in Greek

To focus on the Old Testament occurrences of the word, first set the limits of your search by typing "l ot" in the command line ( "l" for "limit" and "ot" for "Old Testament").

Now, scroll back over the word in the Greek. Hold the shift button and slide the cursor over to the lexicon entry. Double-click on the Greek root of the word to find its overall usage. A list of passages will appear in the display window (far left), and you can now click on an individual verse to get a sense of the use and meaning of the word in its various Old Testament passages. You may also choose to focus on a particular form of the Greek word by double-clicking on the Greek word as it is used in the Greek passage in your browse window. This will only bring up the uses of that exact form of the word (e.g. masculine, dative, plural, noun). WordStudyGk2.png

To focus on New Testament uses of your word, type “l nt” and enter to set the limit to the New Testament. You may have to clear your previous limits by first typing "l c".

To focus on the uses in your particular book or writer: for Matthew, type “l matt” and enter. For one of Paul’s letters—say First Corinthians—type “l 1 cor” and enter.
