I would like to do a study on the different terms for "sin". What tool would I use to generate the list and passages? Words like "trespasses", "lawlessness", etc. Thanks in advance!

For thesaurus-like functionality in Greek, use the Louw-Nida lexicon. In this case, you need to be looking at the domains 88.289-88.318 (at least). You can do a search for those domains with this syntax: <LouwNida ~ LN 88.289-88.318>.

You can also use the Bible Sense Lexicon which works for both NT and OT:

The Lexham Theological Wordbook is also excellent for this sort of thing. It's an really underrated resource.
