Van der Pool, Charles, Ed. A Numerically Coded Greek-English Interlinear Bible, with English-Greek Index, and Lexical Concordance
The first Septuagint (LXX) Interlinear of the Old Testament ever to be produced A Numerically Coded Greek-English Interlinear Bible, with English-Greek Index, and Lexical Concordance 2006 First edition, Apostolic Press. Thick quarto, 15+1242 +372+366 pages, double columns, index 4 columns, concordance 7 columns. Small print, Bible paper, Limp black linen binding. Strong’s numbers above Greek words above English equivalents in a literal translation. The Greek text is the Sixtine/Aldine based on Vatican B Ms, with some variant readings. This is the first Septuagint (LXX) Interlinear of the Old Testament ever to be produced (so far as is known), and highlights those Greek words used in the LXX, but not found in the Christian Greek Scriptures. How are they handled? Take the verb ‘love’ agapao, Strong’s 25, the noun agape, 26, adjective agapetos 27. Added in the concordance with 8 LXX refs only is agapesis,, denoted as 26.1 ‘the act of loving, affection’. So any extra LXX Greek lexical references have a number following a decimal point after the Strong’s number. This AB-Strong system is a most valuable addition when studying a Christian Greek Scripture word. In a few cases several related Strong’s numbers have been brought together under the main one, such as eimi (am, to be, you are etc.),1510,1 thru 10, so that a further sub-division is used, but these are infrequent. Greek words are not transliterated, but are clear, in heavy type. ….and more The Bible includes a 13 page Introduction, a 1232 page numerically coded interlinear Greek-English Old Testament (LXX), a numerically coded 372 page interlinear Greek-English New Testament, an 88 page numerically coded English-Greek Index of The Apostolic Bible Polyglot, and a 366 page numerically coded Lexical Concordance of The Apostolic Bible Polyglot…totaling 2112 pages. The numerical coding is called the ”AB-Strong Numbering System.” The AB-Strong numbering system follows the numbering system developed by James Strong in the 19th century and it has been adapted to The Apostolic Bible Polyglot Greek Old Testament (LXX) by the translator.
