    This is the first version of the concordance use poll. This version only allows for one response. After posting this poll, I saw my error and posted a revised poll allowing multiple responses. Please respond to the revised poll.

    Thank you.

    Yes. I use Sword Searcher Bible software. It is AWESOME!

    Concordance, dictionaries, commentaries, books, charts and lots more. All for $50. Amazing value.

    Your poll won't allow for more than one answer so I chose other.

    I use E-sword or Strong's depending on which is handy.

    Usually I'm looking for a specific passage whose reference I can't remember. (I memorized great amounts of scripture as a child and on through the years, but except John 3;16 and Psalm 23, there are very few passages that I can match with their references.

    Occasionally, I'm looking for all the references to a particular subject, say.

    Less commonly I'm looking for the differences in translation between one passage and another similar.

    The only concordance I have is a NASB concordance, which can be very helpful for us who don't have access to original languages.

    I wouldn't use any of the old KJV concordances for much of anything, though. Their day has passed for most of us.

    Jaigner, Strong's is fine for those of us who were raised KJVO and who memorized large amounts of scripture from that translation.

    I’ve studied Greek for years & still am not anywhere near perfecting it! But I rarely use concordances for understanding the meaning of specific Greek terms b/c context all too often is needed to know this. However, they sure are useful for finding English verses needed for sermons. :thumbsup:

    Maybe, but if you're doing some in-depth study, Strong's isn't going to be the most helpful.

    Since the author has revised the poll, I will shut this down and allow it to drift to the bottom of the page and new one replace it.

    Thank you.

    BTW, I use Strongs.
