This one has me frustrated. Angry

I am attempting to do a Bible Word Study in Genesis 1:14 and the Hebrew word used for "seasons".

My reverse interlinear shows me that it is Strong's H4150

I looked up #4150 in the Enhanced Strong's lexicon and it tells me that it is used as “solemnity” four times and “solemn” as twice (I doubled checked this using the same lexicon in another software program, so it does not appear to be a typo).

I would like to discover where this Hebrew word is used as these English words but the Bible Word Study only comes back with five entries. According to the Strong's Lexicon there should be six in the Authorized Version. Any help on if I am using these resources incorrectly? Thanks.

Peace  Smile

Hi Rick

If you note on the BWS ring there are entries for "solemn feast, feasts" as well as "solemn, solemnities, solemnity"

If you expand both of those you get to 14 occurrences of "solemn" in various forms.

To find where the KJV translates the Hebrew lemma as "solemn" you can do a search as below:

If you compare the two sets of BWS results with the search results above you will see that the search has an additional hit in Zephaniah 3:18 against "solemn assembly"

This is actually reported in another segment of the BWS (but in one which doesn't have a label

 

If you check some other segments you will find some further hits as well - see below for example:

So it looks as though Strongs is actually missing some and BWS is breaking things down in more detail

Hope this helps
