OK, got my dictionaries and commentaries...  Now, say I want to see the 
Greek or Hebrew for a particular word, how would I do that?  It seems 
that I must know the reference number first, before I can see the Greek 
or Hebrew...   How can I find the number that corresponds with a given 
word??


I haven't found a help file for it....  or I'd have gone there first.  :^\
