How to Use the Strong's Concordance Tool
( How to Use the C-Button )

1. To view the Strong's Concordance and lexicon information on any passage of Scripture, first go to that portion of Scripture in the Blue Letter Bible (the easiest means to this end is to search out the verse from our home page).

2. Once on the page with the desired passage, you will notice that each verse of Scripture is prefaced by an assortment of buttons (generally , , , , , and/or ). The button links to the concordance information associated with the selected verse (hence the "C" for "concordance"). Click on the button as illustrated below.

3. This will bring you to a page identical to the former with the exception of a large table immediately following the selected verse. This table, nestled between two scrolls with various Hebrew or Greek versions of the text, is made up of a listing of the words used in the verse followed by the Strong's reference number corresponding to each along with the original Hebrew or Greek for that portion of Scripture.

4. When searching through the Old Testament, the first scroll contains the original Hebrew-language text. While in the New Testament, this will contain the Greek version contained in the Textus Receptus.

5. For more information on whichever manuscript is herein used, please click on the blue information link as seen below.

6. In the first column of the concordance, you will find the English words used in the verse. These are all linked to the Word Search feature on the Blue Letter Bible and so, by clicking on one, you will receive a listing of every instance of that English word in the King James Version.

7. The second column of the concordance table contains the Strong's reference numbers corresponding to the English word(s) from the first column. These are linked to the Strong's Search tool and will give you both lexicon information on the word and a listing of every instance of the selected word in the original language.

8. The third column displays the original Hebrew or Greek (in the corresponding letter set) prefaced by an English transliteration.

9. Occasionally there are words from the original language that for one reason or another are not translated into English. In such cases (Extra Strong's #) will appear in the first column. These are generally untranslatable words and are taken into account by the context and grammar of the English translation as is the definite particle in this example.

10. For some verbs you will find a button. If you click on this button, you will be served information on exactly what the verb is and to which other words it is related.

11. When searching through the Old Testament, this last scroll contains the Greek Septuagint translation of the Old Testament. While in the New Testament, this will contain the Greek version contained in the Wescott-Hort edition.

12. For more information on whichever manuscript is herein used, please click on the blue information link as seen below.
