Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my route. (Ps. 119:105, ARTB)
Thank you for joining me on the journey to discover the meaning behind each and every word of the Bible. Our love for His word is based upon the premise that each unique word of the original manuscript merits a unique word in our English translations. His word IS a lamp and light for us!
Bible Words Hebrew Strong's is now available for $0.99 as a Kindle book at Amazon. This book is essentially my personal files which I used during my work compiling the ARTB. It compares the highest use word for every Hebrew Strong’s number for the King James Version (KJV), and also is the first publication of the Hebrew Strong’s lexicon of the Ancient Roots® Translinear® Bible (ARTB®) Old Testament (2006).

P.S. for the Bible Geeks like me: As I was compiling the ARTB, I consulted a wide range of Strong’s Dictionaries and Concordances. However, many failed to provide a satisfactory answer about the real definition of a particular Hebrew Strong's number. Over time, I found that the BEST information on the real meaning of a word was NOT the complete Concordance listing of all the different words that occurred in the KJV, but rather the word that appeared the highest percentage of the time in the text. Consequently, I calculated this percentage for each Strong’s number. Secondly, I needed to watch out for those places where the main word was NOT dominant in the text, noting where it occurred 50% or less of the time, which suggested that the original translators were very unsure as to its meaning. Finally, I needed a careful eye to spot those places where the KJV reused an English word, duplicating its use. I added an asterisk (*) to my files to note these words.
The first volume Bible Words has been renamed, adding the word THESAURUS to the title to distinguish between the two books. It has been a very popular item, giving all the words of the bible organized by topics of everyday life. Bible Words Thesaurus is just $0.99 as a Kindle book at Amazon.
