I was disappointed to see that Swanson's Dictionary of Biblical Languages with Semantic Domains (Hebrew) is no help (unless I do not know how to use it properly) in finding OT semantic domains (as opposed to just providing cross-referencing to NT semantic domains).

The question is: does anyone know of a resource on the OT that is an equivalent to Louw-Nida's work? I know I can use the Bible Word Study as a tool to help find words that belong in the same semantic domain, but this approach is more haphazard. Likewise, I have tried to use Vine's dictionary for this purpose but found it difficult to use for OT concepts.

A Basic Search of DBL Hebrew will find all words that belong to a LN domain eg.

LN in 65

LN in "65.1-10"

I don't know a resource that offers true OT domains.

We're working on this problem, but for now the closest thing we have is the Andersen-Forbes Hebrew analysis, which is marked up with some basic semantic domains and can be searched with them, using the syntax searching system.

Since Zondervan products are coming to Logos, the NIDOTTE does have a semantic domain index. Here is a screenshot (from the Pradis edition):
