I ran across the word, ἱερός (adj), during the sermon tonight. I searched the Greek text and learned that it is used only 3X in the NT. Out of curiosity, I searched for the Key Number in a couple of versions. The results were kinda odd: ἱερός and ἱερόν were rolled together in the NAS95.

The NAS Gk Dictionary seems to be messed up. It has separate key numbers for the two words. But an attempt to search for the Key Number corresponding to ἱερόν is impossible.

The NAS Dictionary seems to see ἱερόν as merely a substantival use of the adjective (which is probably right) – but this is the predominant use, and there are different Key Numbers for the two words. Doing the search for ἱερός in the ESV, HCSB, or NKJV gives only 2 hits – just what would be expected as the third use in the NA28th is in one of the added endings of Mark.
Is this how it is supposed to be, or is there a problem?
