I am currently doing a study on "bread", and when I click on the word "bread" in the text, I can find the Hebrew/Greek word translated "bread", and how it's used throughout the Bible. However, is there a way of finding WHICH Hebrew/Greek words are translated "bread" (eg in the OT, there are 255 occurrences of the word "bread" in the OT. It was easy to find that 237 of those are H3899; however, can I easily find what the remaining 18 are?)

So you're trying to see how many times that Greek word was translated into a specific word in English?

The KJC (King James Concordance) can do this (but only for the KJV, of course.)

The NASS also has "Usage" information which will show you this information, but it doesn't allow you to drill down and see the places where the word was used the different ways. It just tells you how many times each translation was used.

Thanks, but it's actually the other way around; I want to know which Hebrew/Greek words were translated to a single English word ie in John 6:35, I can tap on "bread" and find the Greek word translated here, and also where else I can find it in the NT. What I actually want to do is start with the word "bread" and find out ALL the Greek words which have been translated as "bread" in the NT. Does that make sense?

There's no easy way to do this at this time (that I'm aware of.)
