Cruden's Concordance

"Cruden’s Concordance of the Bible is likely the largest project of compilation ever undertaken by one person!

First published in 1737—even the title's a mouthful: A Complete Concordance to the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament—it's a concordance to the King James Bible and deuterocanonical books, together amounting to nearly 775,000 words!

Think about it, no computer, no indexing, no research assistants, no copy devices, everything written by hand.

Any verse can be found using any word in the verse; meanings of passages are explained, information about Jewish customs and feasts are added, proper names in the Bible are listed with explanation of words in the original languages, just to name a few features.

Engage with the Bible. It’s easier than ever to read and study for yourself this Book of Books!"
