LEXICONS

A lexicon is a dictionary. In the field of biblical studies, lexicons typically provide definitions for words in Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek.

Hardcopy lexicons often require some knowledge of the original languages.

Software lexicons require no such knowledge, and assist the reader with automated searches.
