The reference work to which this book owes most is the Oxford English Dictionary (OED); next to it, Webster's New International Dictionary, Second Edition. There are excellent articles on words in the four-volume Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible. The volumes of The Interpreter's Bible are of great value for comparison of KJ and RSV. The Hebrew lexicon referred to in this book is by Brown, Driver, and Briggs (BDB), published by the Clarendon Press in 1907, corrected impression 1952. The Greek lexicons are by J. H. Thayer, 1885, fourth edition, reprinted 1953; and by W. F. Arndt and F. W. Gingrich, 1957.

Valuable concordances are by John Bartlett for the works of Shakespeare, by James Strong and by Robert Young for the King James Version of the Bible, by M. C. Hazard for the American Standard Version of the Bible, and Nelson Complete Concordance of the Revised Standard Version Bible.

This bibliographical note does not attempt to list the sources consulted in the preparation of this book. Some of them are indicated in the text; to name them all would extend this note unduly.
