I would like to be able to compare the various lexicons that list a passage in the definition.  For example if BDAG list a verse under definition #3 I would have that definition listed.  If DBL has that passage under definition under #5 I would list that definition.  Lastly I would have those definitions all listed together so I can easily compare the meaning of that word in context with the various lexicons.    

It would look somewhat like this:

2 Thessalonians 3:6 Disorderly (NKJV) ἀτάκτως

BDAG  in defiance of good order, disorderly; behave irresponsibly

The Complete Word Study Dictionary  In a disorderly manner, irregularly

DBL  lazily, in idleness, i.e., refusing to work

Vine  “disorderly, with slackness” (like soldiers not keeping rank) 2 Thess. 3:6; in v. 11 it is said of those in the church who refused to work, and became busybodies

Louw and Nida  pertaining to refusing to work—‘idle, lazy, lazily.’

Sense Lexicon  in a manor not submitting to discipline and order  

The Exegetical Dictionary of the New Testament of the brother whose conduct is disorderly (i.e., not according to the tradition), or of those living in an irresponsible manner, who no longer work

If there are other who like this idea let me know.

Something like the lemma section of the Bible Word Study but filter by passage reference?

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

This is a nice idea. Apart from MJ's suggestion, this info could appear in the Information tool.

If could work in the information tool if it is pared down to just the definition listed in that context and not the whole lexical entry.  Although I would prefer a stand alone tool.  

I would like to simply look at the definitions that has that verse listed without the clutter of other Greek works, verses, ect.  Like in my example.

It would have to be a little more robust than what the Bible Word Study offers.  There are still allot of gaps in the definitions listed.  For example Louw-Nida has no definitions listed at all.  Bdag has only simple definitions listed not the expanded definition listed and I would want only the ones that are listed with the particular passage.

That is what I like to see here https://community.logos.com/forums/p/122788/802274.aspx#802274 .  But I would also like a stand alone option to view definitions in context side by side without all the clutter.  This would include the expanded definitions in BDAG.
