I've been using CWS and occasionally search for other scripture using the Strong's number, that is provided by clicking on a word. I was puzzled tonight when reading Exo 12:35 and clicking on the word borrowed. While the Strong's number H7592 was provided along with the definition, it was not a link. I was able to click on the Find link to locate other scripture with the word borrow, and in fact the definition provided the same Strong's number. I'm curious as to why some Strong's numbers are clickable links while others are not. Thanks for any help you can provide. John

I'm not sure what you mean? When you tap "borrowed" you get exactly what you're supposed to get -- the strongs number with the definition, [Find] links (and related links if you have [BDB] or other related resources installed.) What do you need a link to?

You might be confused because "nested" strongs numbers have links. For example, in Genesis 1:1, the word God is H430. Inside the definition, it says that this word is a plural of H433. H433 in this case has a link, so you can open it to view it's definition. But the key word, H430, has no link, because you're already viewing that definition.

One more tip -- you can search for strongs numbers in the main search screen by typing the number (or a combination of numbers, such as H1234 H2345, or for the Greek G1234.

Thanks for the tips and clarification. It was the word "borrowed" that was throwing me off. When I completed the search, I didn't see anything like the english word borrowed in the other references. After I went back and reread the Strong's definition, I noted that the word means ask. Then the other references made sense. Actually, when I looked at all the other versions I have, even the Geneva, they use the word ask or request, not borrow. Seems the KJV is the only version that uses borrow. When I click on Find, am I looking up the English word or the Hebrew - seems like it is the Hebrew since the same references are displayed when searching by Strong's number or clicking on Find. Is there a difference? Thanks again for all your help. John

When you click on [Find] you are searching for that specific strongs number used throughout the Bible.
