Hello All

As great as the Hebrew tools are with Accordance, I would love to see three of the standard reference works - GKC, Jołon/Muraoka, and full BDB. I know that there are e-texts for Jołon/Muraoka, full BDB, and GKC's 2nd edition (all currently available on Logos). Despite their age they are still authoritative sources for all scholarly Hebrew work and area commonly cited in journals, other reference works and are regularly used in Bible schools and seminaries worldwide.

You're not alone, Ron! I, too, hope that these venerable and still useful works make their way into the Accordance library at some point. I purchased the Logos unabridged BDB a few years ago (I believe they briefly sold a facsimile edition on CD before that) but found not a few typos in my attempts at using it, which did not bode well for its reliability. I believe there are serious attempts under way to revise at least the etymological information in BDB (which would probably entail, among other things, normalizing the presentation of cognates in transliteration, the use of English abbrevations, and some bibliographic updates); perhaps it would make sense to wait for the fruits of such a project before attempting to port BDB.

I agree with GKC and Jołon/Muraoka; not sure about BDB.
