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)
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:-
Hearty thanks are given to all who have kindly aided in this work, and the blessing of God is invoked on its publication. In addition it should be mentioned, with many thanks, that J. Norman McGimpsey did most of the work for this digital edition. He is also the author of "Lineal & Thematic Indexes to 'Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs'", available from Chapter Two, this link will take you out of this site.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.
Note:This version, using Materialize, has been copied from the original Stem Publishing website and edited by R.W.McClean, Dec/2015. It is an experiment to see how to provide a version that works well with tablets and mobile phones.
