“I use SwordSearcher mainly for sermon prep and study, but also for quick verse look-ups. SwordSearcher is bar none the BEST software on the market.”
—Deacon Chris Hartzell
The Bible Word-Book is a a unique dictionary. It is not theological, but linguistic. It's purpose is to clearly define words in the King James Bible which are uncommon in use, or have changed meaning since the translation of the KJV.
This "glossary" includes well over 2,000 definitions, most of which include copious examples from Pre- and Old-English literature, establishing an accurate etymology, helping the student of the English Bible to understand the intent of the translators.
From W. A. Wright's introduction:
About the SwordSearcher electronic edition
Meticulous effort has been taken to maintain the intent of the author to present the reader with original spelling and grammar, including printing characters which have fallen out of use in the English language. Many words, spellings, and characters which may appear to be errors are in fact accurate quotations of Pre- and Old-English works.
By William Aldis Wright, M.A., LL. D. Based on the original uncompleted work of J. Eastwood. Second Edition; Revised and Enlarged; 1884.
