Sure there is James A. Swanson's Dictionary of Biblical Languages with Semantic Domains: Hebrew (Old Testament) but while there are LN tags or links to the words, they are still ordered alphabetically.

I found this UBS tool

so hoping someday Logos will have something as useful as Louw-Nida for Hebrew

I have Louw-Nida, but seldom use it.  When I do use it I look to see what alternatives are in the semantic domain.  I'm really not very impressed by it.

Hey George, 

What exactly is it that doesn't impress you? The categorizing by semantic domains is certainly imposed upon the N.T. words [in a "best scholarly guess" approach], but what is not to like? Please explain. IMHO, it is a fine work that provides a useful tool for Bible study.

L&N doesn't do a very good job of differentiating the various uses of a word and supporting their interpretation by passages where they deem that the differing usages appear.  I don't like for a lexicon to make the decision for me but prefer one that allows me to make my own decision based on the evidence presented.

Scott: we created the Bible Sense Lexicon to address this need. Bible Sense Lexicon will tell you more about it. This dataset is available in Logos Gold and higher, or Feature Crossgrade.
