      Dear Pierre,

      First things first. And that is to give credit to a member of this list – Robert Kraft – who at the end of the prior decade played a key role in bringing out a one-volume edition of Hatch-Redpath, the most important tool of Septuagint research to this day. The Baker Books edition is hard to pick up in one hand (unless you’re Shack O’Neill!), and my binding has been taped a few times; but that doesn’t diminish the value for those of us who have trouble keeping two volumes together and remembering which one to access for the word sought. I’ll never forget the day in Jerusalem in Emmanuel Tov’s seminar when there lay the book on the table for our inspection. When I got home and had a few bucks, I bought one for myself at the Westminster Seminary bookstore. Thanks again, Bob. Answering your question: “st.” abbreviates “stative”and tells us that – for example – the transitive verb ἀμύνομαι (amunomai) at Isaiah 59:16 corresponds to the Hebrew תּוֹשַׁע לוֹ, (yasha hi, as you have it), which has the stative sense “he is saved.” Same with the ἀνατίθημι (ana tithemi) verses Lev. 27:28-29, that have the transitive verb “place” in conjunction with the Hebrew hofal of חרם in the stative sense “is taboo, destined for annihilation.” I can't figure out "32a."  My version of Strongs has ἀγγεῖον (aggeion) at number 30 of the “Greek Dictionary of the New Testament.”  Number 32 is ἄγγελος (aggelos).  Now you know why I use Hatch-Redpath.

      Greek to Hebrew Dictionary of Septuagint Words
      This lexicon contains Hebrew words found in the OT which are coded to Strong's and also contains equivalent Greek words which have translated these Hebrew words in the Septuagint. These Greek words are also found in the NT and are coded to Strong's. The benefit is that by double clicking on the Strong's numbers while having a Greek lexicon as a default, one can find the in depth meaning of all these Septuagint Greek words thus providing a link between the OT Hebrew and NT Greek. (Due acknowledgment is given to Manual Greek Lexicon of the New Testament by Abbot-Smith and Hatch and Redpath Concordance to the Septuagint)

      Greetings. I'm the developer of a opensource online and mobile bible study and research tool(released under agpl) and found on http://bibleway.us

      I'm working on converting these databases found under sources.

      There is a few matters i'd like to ask regarding the dictionary that i hope someone here would be able to answer.

      Anyone here understand what the term "st." ;found several times in the dictionary, would mean. Places where its noted with a *-sign

      And as found here:
      aggeion     00953    bor
      aggeion     03603    kikkar
      see; (32a) aggos     03619    keluv
      aggeion     03627    keli
      see; (32a) aggos     03627    keli
      aggeion     05035    nevel

      Would it be a reference to a strong number 32? noted with some kind of "a"?
      Which to me from looking at the dictionaries doesn't seem to have any logical relations.

      Other examples:

      st.  amuno     03467    yasha hi
      st.  amuno     04135    mul hi

      see st. ana tithemi     02763    charam hi.,ho
      see st. ana tithemi     03322    yatsag hi
      see st. ana tithemi     07760    sim


      hala ni.         683 st. ap otheo
      halo    2400    idou *
      halo    3568    nun*

      Gods peace
