How do I change my default LXX lexicon? It defaults to BDAG, which is good for the NT, but not for the LXX

Matthew,

1) prioritise the Lexicon you would like to use (eg. Lust)

2) right click and chose to set the advanced settings

3) set the resource you would like it to be active from

Actually BDAG, when it covers LXX vocabulary is by far the best lexicon available with GELS being a close second (but not digitally available). LEH is most of the time dependent upon LSJ for its glosses, which has been known for decades for its extremely poor coverage of the Koine period in general and the LXX in particular.

All that to say, KEEP BDAG as your first priority for the LXX when possible. Don't waste your time elsewhere.
