Quick Tip – Use the ESV with Strong’s


One of the great features in WORDsearch is the ability to easily access Strong’s Numbers from the King James Version (KJV), Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) and New American Standard Bible (NASB) translations. Today, the English Standard Version (ESV) has been added to that list. Yes, you can now use Strong’s with the ESV!

The ESV is an “essentially literal” translation. It aims to be transparent to the original text so that you, the reader, can directly see the meaning and structure. It’s one of today’s 5 most popular Bible translations.

If you already own the ESV, all you need to do to get the lastest version including this feature is to Check for Book Updates.

To do this:

Click the Help menu, and then Check for Book Updates. Note: You will not be able to check for Book Updates either way unless you have registered your WORDsearch and are signed in.
