Blue Letter Bible

I have links to 2 bible sites on my sidebar. The first, Bible Gateway is probably the better known one, and is great for getting bible passages in any of a wide range of translations (etc.) and searching for words and phrases. The second is Blue Letter Bible, and has its own strengths that make it worth using as well.

I use Blue Bible for looking up Greek and Hebrew words. I have no formal theological training, and find the site useful for some basic word exploration.

For example, in 1 Cor 7:7 the Greek word for gift is charisma. If I search for ‘1 Cor 7′ and then click on the ‘C’ next to v7, I get this page, with the Greek words and Stron’g numbers for each word or phrase alongside the English from the KJV. If I click on the Strong’s number next to ‘gift’ I get this page, which provides the lexicon entry for charisma. From the usage list I see the various ways in which the word is used, such as Spiritual gift as definition 5. Of course I don’t have to take their word for it, I can check all the references and see, for example, its use to refer to the gift of eternal life in Rom 3:26, and Paul’s delivery from death in 2 Cor 1:11.

On my pda I have MyBible from Laridian, and they have a new concordance that has some of the same features.

    what do you think about the BLB Bible college?

  2. Normand Says:

    For one thing, these units are completely eco-friendly,
    relying on nothing more than the power of super-heated steam to loosen and remove different kinds of stains and deposits.
    And while they are extremely efficient machines that clean large areas in record
    time, they are also easy to operate for that spilled ashtray or
    other debris that needs to be picked up quickly.
    Before you purchase, though, always make sure that these universal
    tools will work with the cleaner you have at home.


  3. If you cook every one of them up and add them all to the blender cup that comes while
    using hand blender, this can be powerful kitchen tool to
    generate the most delicious soups that you’ll just love eating. Filling the glass till roughly two-thirds of the height must be sufficient. The loop attachment is to create products added inside a drink smooth and blended.
