1 from the 15 volume set. I never heard of the a single volume abridgement for TDOT. I searched but nothing. TDNT has a single volume abridgement, which is floating around somewhere.
1 study was kabod, glory in Isaiah so when I checked TDOT and NIDOTTE (I own this set). I was not impressed w. lack of thoroughness of the articles and their headings of usage. I do not have the photocopies of the articles either to ,make clearer my comment.
There are Greek and Hebrew forums where people have access to these sets and you could ask for an article or 2 concerning your word (s).
More advice on word studies.
Find the Greek, or Hebrew-Aramaic word or locate its Strong or G/K number. When studying a word determine the number occurrences. If a word appears 50-100x, study 50% appearances; word appears 25-50x, study 25 appearances. If 15 to 25x appearances, then study all. 1x to 15x, study all appearances, Liddel and Scott’s lexicon and appearances in LXX (Greek only). However, for best results study all or most occurrences in their contexts; note people, places, and things in connection. Do not force all lexical meanings on the word, nor sensationalize, but choose the definition fits the context. A word can have a literal or figurative meaning. Check the conclusion with word study books, lexicons, Theological/Bible dictionaries (Encyclopedias), and commentaries.
For best results Study all occurrences of your word, unknown words, words appearing many times, and cognates. If studying Greek begin with the book, then author, rest of New Testament writings and then Lxx. If studying Hebrew-Aramaic begin with the book, then author, type of literature (prophets, poetic books, narrative).
after you do a word study then check the resources you wanted to see if they are worth the expense.
