Bible Word Study

Target any word in your Bible to discover its original meaning. Verbum features a multitude of ways to study biblical words.

  • See any word’s meaning in either Greek or Hebrew.
  • Find words with similar original-language roots.
  • Explore stats, graphs, word senses, and lexicons.
“There are doubtless many different languages in the world, and none is without meaning; but if I do not know the meaning of the language, I shall be a foreigner to the speaker and the speaker a foreigner to me.”

(1 Corinthians 14:10-11, RSVCE)

Explore any word in depth

The Bible Word Study tool helps you find everything you need: definitions, synonyms, translations, transliterations, and more. In Verbum, you can find more meaning behind almost every word.

Learn and master Greek or Hebrew

Bible Word Study supports all levels of language study by integrating the Bible Sense Lexicon, clause data, and pronunciation tools.

Further your study

Branch out from your Bible-word studies into further information on a given person, place, thing, or event. Verbum will connect each of your studies to relevant information from throughout your library.

Study any word’s sense

Bible Word Study draws from Verbum’s Bible Sense Lexicon, allowing you to easily discover linguistic nuances and relations to other words in Scripture.

Unearth root words and lemmas

Find linguistic connections between biblical words, or etymological connections between English words and their ancient Greek counterparts.

Analyze linguistic data

Get stats on any word’s usage—or even the usage of a specific morphological form. Verbum will find and count the occurrences of each root for you.
