I have prioritized the Lexham Theological Wordbook as my highest prioritized lexicon [for both Old Testament and New Testament]. But, for some reason, it many times fails to come up first [or even come     up at all] Any thoughts about this. [I have attached my Old Testament prioritization.] .

Where are you not seeing it appearing?

Have you checked that the words you are looking at appear in the wordbook?

Yes, Graham.

For example, in Gen 1:1, created works correctly - but heavens does not [though heavens appears in the LTW]. In Matt 1:1, βίβλος = book is in the LTW but does not appear when I work with that word. [The next highest prioritized lexicon appears in both of these cases.] I hope I have expressed this clearly.

Hey Bill, 

How are you searching it? I prioritized this both in my list of lexicons and commentaries and ran a Greek word is the BWS that appears in the book and it did not show the book at all; much less in the right order. Then I prioritized it in my commentaries and ran a verse in my PG that appears in the book and it did not return the book at all; much less the correct order. So, I do not know if there is truly a bug with this resource or I am truly searching it the incorrect way.

Mike,

I usually double-click on the Hebrew or Greek word and it will bring me to my highest prioritized lexicon. [But this can also be done by right clicking on the Hebrew or Greek or English word and then choosing Lemma and then Look Up.]

I've seen this myself. I just assumed the word wasn't in the LTW, which stunned me because some often used words didn't show up in my double click. I just assumed the LTW wasn't a very good tool. But after reading this post I realize that I'm having the same problem.

I really like the LTW as a Lexicon - so that's why I'm hoping they can correct this problem.

This resource seems have some great, great information but also some issues: "ἱλαστήριον" from Romans 3:25 does not appear in the search results either. Now, you can open the resource and put  ἱλαστήριον in the word box and it will find it, but that resource does not appear in the right mouse click options or in the BWS report pr the exegetical guide.

Yeah, I am running across several, several words that are not appearing in the searching, but are in the resource. Ran across another one in James 2:11: "μοιχεύω", will not show the resource if you r right click on the word, but if you copy the word and paste it in the resource that word and the verse, James 2:11, appear....so FL has some tagging issues with that resource.

Update: Turned out to be a book issue. Kyle's team is aware and working on it. I can see their case load and it looks like they have pinpointed the issue and know what to do to fix it, and should issue an update as soon as it's ready.

This has been a known issue for NINE months and it is still not working.  Is there any progress towards fixing this broken resource?
