Online Bible Tools (Free)

The Official North American Online Bible Site : site of the main online bible program
TOLBSS : contains nice modules to supplement the online bible program

From http://www.onlinebible.net/programs.html download and install the advanced starter pack, the program update and the help file update. You now have the Online Bible with Authorised Version Bible (KJV), Eastons Dictionary, TSK and Greek/Hebrew Lexicons. The KJV is also linked to Strongs numbers which allows you to access to original Greek and Hebrews words by hitting "s" when viewing a passage. Clicking on the numbers accesses the Lexicons which define the word. You can do word and phrase searches both in English and, using strongs numbers, in Greek and Hebrew.

As for the Old Testament, the Hebrew Masoretic text is normally used today, but in Jesus' time it is apparent that the apostles commonly used the LXX (The Septuagint), which was a translation into Greek developed about 270 BC from a slightly different Hebrew text. The New Testament most commonly quotes the LXX. When there's a difference between the LXX and the Masoretic text, the New Testament authors opt for the LXX 91% of the time. As the New Testament is written in Greek, the LXX is particularly helpful in Greek word studies as it provides more examples of the usage of particular Greek words which we find in the New Testament being used in the Old Testament which the Apostles refer to as "scripture".

Previously there was no convenient freeware tool for the average Christian to use to do word searches in Greek in the Septuagint, but the BCBSR has recently developed an Online Bible module for that  purpose.

For the LXXM , the Strongs numbers and the parsing can be viewed by turning on the footnotes.

A New Testament equivalent is the Byzantine Greek Majority Textform 1991 Byzantine/Majority Textform Keyed to Strongs and Fully Parsed. Prepared by Maurice A. Robinson, Ph.D.

In addition I recommend the World English Bible module which is in modern English and was specifically designed for the internet free of copyright restrictions.

Heb 1:6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. De 32:43 Rejoice, ye heavens, with him, and let all the angels of God worship him; {The MT omits this quote}
1Cor 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? Hos 13:14 I will deliver them out of the power of Hades, and will redeem them from death: where is thy penalty, O death? O Hades, where is thy sting? comfort is hidden from mine eyes. I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.
Heb 10:37-38 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.  Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. Hab 2:3-4 For the vision is yet for a time, and it shall shoot forth at the end, and not in vain: though he should tarry, wait for him; for he will surely come, and will not tarry. If he should draw back, my soul has no pleasure in him: but the just shall live by my faith. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

Searching Strongs numbers in the LXXM

Due to a software "feature" of the OLB the strongs numbers are in the footnotes.
Thus use "f" rather than "s" to turn them on if you haven't checked the "footnote" option in the "view" menu.

To search strongs numbers in the LXXM:
At the top of the OLB window you see
File Edit View Library Audio Tools Window

Click on "View"
It will show you a list of options
 Cross References
 Strongs
 Footnotes
 Variants

Click on "Footnotes" and it if you bring it up again it should have a check mark next to "Footnotes" now:

   Cross References
   Strongs
x Footnotes
   Variants

Now you'll be able to search the strongs numbers in the footnotes using the F7 key or the flashlight icon.
Just enter the strong's number in "Search Text".
