A New and Concise Bible Dictionary embracing some special features, to which are added some
New Testament Synonyms

Man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of Jehovah doth man live. (Deut. 8:3; Matt. 4:4)

Prefatory Note

The principal object in bringing out this Bible Dictionary is to give in a concise form information on subjects not usually found in such works, namely:-

  1. A short survey of each of the Books of the Bible, with a glance at the truth of God contained in them.
  2. The doctrines of Christianity as set forth in scripture.
  3. The dispensational dealings of God as revealed in His word: the distinction between the various dispensations being often misunderstood and ignored.
  4. Prophecy: many parts of scripture being unintelligible unless the ways of God as portrayed in Prophecy are understood.
  5. The feasts and offerings given in the Old Testament, with their antitypes found in the New Testament.
  6. The names of persons and places have been included to make the work complete, together with the identification of sites as far as they been discovered by modern travellers. The Longitude and Latitude of such have been inserted from the excellent map of the Palestine Exploration Fund.
    Links have been inserted to enable users of this digital edition to view the sites using Google Earth, this link will take you out of this site.
  7. Chronological tables are also added under Antiochus, Assyria, Babylon, Chronology, Egypt, Judges, Kings, New Testament, Persia, and Roman Empire.
  8. A few New Testament Synonyms form an Appendix, giving examples of how God has been pleased to cause the writers of the various books to use many Greek words. Under the proper names is given in most cases a reference to every occurrence of the name, forming thus far a Concordance.

Norman McGimpsey did most of the work for this digital edition.

Note for users of this electronic version:

It has been necessary to establish a standard method of entry. This applies to complex multi-syllable words, especially names, some of which may, in certain versions of scripture, be shown with hyphens, apostrophes etc., as an aid to pronunciation. All such extras have been removed from the main headings for searching purposes, but the original entry in the Morrish dictionary has also been included in square brackets.


Name in 2 Kings 15:29 is shown in one printing of scripture as "A'-bel-beth-ma'-a-chah." It is entered in this version as "Abelbethmaachah [A'bel-beth-ma'achah]."

[A'bel-beth-ma'achah] is the 'Morrish' method of entry.
