A guide for completing the exegetical research paper.

Why Word Study?

Completing a Word Study helps you to better understand the original Greek or Hebrew meaning of Bible words. 

Old Testament Word Study

Hebrew Concordances

Hebrew-English Lexicons

Finding the word you want is the first step in translation and word study. Lexicons offer historical variations of words and how each word is translated differently into English. After you find your word, look for it in an Old Testament Dictionary (which can be found in the "Background Information" tab).
