In eSword, how can we add The New Strongs Exaustive Concordance of the Bible?
eSword currently has the Strong's numbers associated with the KJV Bible words and other Bible downloads. this is very good.
We need the ability to have a true type Concordance that lists every key word in the KJV Bible except a, an, and, to, I, and similar type common items. The Concordance should list every Bible key word by each of it variations and the scriptures where the word appear.
For instance in a Concordance when looking up the word stoop, it appears as follows.
1 Sam 24:8
1 Sam 24:18
2 Chron 32:3
The Concordance lists all the words in alphabetical order. When you do not know how to spell the word or its different variations being used you are in trouble looking it up. In a Concordance with all the words listed, you can physically search each word and see what is what. eSword does have a very good search function; but, you must know how to spell the word. The search function shows one word at a time.
How can we get the New Strongs Exhuastive Concordance of the Bible added to eSword?
I want to thank each one of you for the information on the Concordance and revising the font to a smaller size.
Based on what I know now, there may be copyright or public domain issues. I will not get in trouble with God by violating the Law; I will obey God in all things. What will be needful is having a data base that has all the words that are in the KJV Bible with the variations of how the word is spelled in the bible. After the word is listed then the scriptures in the bible where the word appears is listed. An example would be as follows:
Job 9:13 the proud helpers do s under him 7817
Prov 12:25 in the heart on man maketh it s 7812
Isa 46:2 They s, they bow down together 7164
Mark 1:7 shoes I am not worthy to s down 2955
In a Concordance, normally next to the scripture reference, a short portion of the actual scripture is written so you can see what the scripture reference is. A letter is used to represent the word being looked at -- for stoop, the letter s is used. Then a number representing the Strong's number in Hebrew or Greek is given such as 7812 from the reference for Job 9:13.
A word Bible Concordance with scripture references only is needed. We do not have to have the scripture sentence or the Strong's number. We need two things. We need the word and the references. The reason for this is that e-Sword already provides an excellent scripture sentence and a Strong's number.
Now if we have all the KJV Bible words in alphabetical order and list the various scriptures under the words
we can look up what we need to study. When we have the word and the scripture -- e-Sword Tooltip can be used to format the scripture so we can hoover over the scripture and see what the bible says.
What I have been thinking about is how to get a alphabetical word listing of every word in the KJV Bible. We want to use the 1769 KJV edition of the KJV Bible. From the reading I have been doing, I understand that there are some 788, 000 plus words overall in the KJV bible. Many words are duplicates or variations of an existing word. I also understand that there are some 14,000 actual various word in the KJV bible. Some words or identifiers like to, too, a, an and, of, the, I, am, or, and similar items would not be include because they are common usage words.
I believe that a next step is finding a public domain database or list of all the words in the KJV bible. We can also have an A to Z alphabet list and when we click on A , all the bible words in A will appear.
There are some thoughts. What are your thoughts? Some one asked the question, how much time do I have to do this. I do not know;but, God knows my time; I trust him and I thank God that if we reason together,it will not take long. Please let know your thoughts.
