I am puzzled that the NIV & ESV reverse interlinear Bibles display G2532 for the conjunction καί.

e.g. Luke 16:21 - clicking on Strongs Number gives following:

δεκαοκτώ  (dekaoktō): number; Str 1176 + 2532 + 3638—eighteen (Lk 13:4, 11+); LN 60.24 eighteen

Am I missing something here?

Thanks

Brian

Suspect Dictionary of Biblical Languages (DBL) Greek Lexicon has higher priority than a Strong's lexicon.  DBL Greek 1277 shows the number eighteen is an English translation for three Greek lemma's: deka (ten) and (plus) oktw (eight)

Personally use Strong's numbers for quick access to several discussion lexicons.

The best policy is to get yourself a REAL lexicon and get rid of that misbegotten piece of trash.

It comes from the first entry in DBL Greek for G2532. The next entry is the correct one but the lookup only gets the first occurrence. To overcome this prioritise Enhanced Strong's Lexicon above DBL Greek, as follows:

Right click and use Advanced Prioritization to achieve this.

Do similarly for ESL (Hebrew Strong's) and DBL Hebrew.

You could use another lexicon but ESL is best for Greek and Hebrew Strong's numbers.
