At first glance I was a bit overwhelmed by the text, but have found it to be very helpful.

Friberg's lexicon gives the basic definition using one word or a short phrase, along with some sample verse references, with sometimes a partial verse included.

I use the version of Friberg that is found on the BibleWorks 7 software program. But comparing BibleWorks to this hardcopy edition, it looks like they are the same.

That said, I used this lexicon extensively when I was working on my Analytical-Literal Translation of the New Testament: Third Edition (ALT). It was always the first lexicon I would check when doing a word study. And with BibleWorks, this was very easy. Just right click on the word. But even in hardcopy, it would not be that difficult to look up the word if you know Greek.

Friberg's lexicon gives the basic definition using one word or a short phrase, along with some sample verse references, with sometimes a partial verse included. Shades of meanings are represented by Friberg giving more than one word or phrase for the basic meaning. When a word has more than one basic meaning, these are numbered and listed individually, again with sample verse references. When a word has a literal and a common figurative meaning, these are both given.

I found Friberg's lexicon to be very accurate. I would often do more detailed word studies by referring to several other lexicons and theological dictionaries, but often, I ended up using one of Friberg's suggested translations. I also sometimes used both Friberg's literal definition for the main text of the ALT and its figurative meanings for the bracketed figurative meanings in the ALT.

So I cannot recommended this lexicon highly enough. It is detailed enough for general word studies while being simple enough that one can get a grasp of the meanings(s) of a word at a glance.

Bought this book as a companion to my Greek Syntax & Exegesis class at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Friberg's lexicon is very accurate, though his parsing code takes a bit to catch onto. I also have Mounce's analytical, which is easier to use but can be tricky because Mounce parses all deponent verbs as either passive or middle (which can truly mess up your translations!). Friberg makes the distinction if a verb is deponent, and is the FIRST source I go to if I can't parse a verb confidently.

Friberg's analyt has to be the most reliable one out there.

This "ANLEX" a complete lexicon to the Koine New Testament Greek. However, this lexicon differs from all other such Koine lexicons in on one important respect: It lists all words and all their forms. That is, while all other lexicons list all the words in the New Testament, it will do so by only listing them in their "lexical forms". For example, lego (= I speak) is the root form, or lexical form, of this verb; but it is not obvious that ero (= I will speak) and eipon ( = I spoke) are even related to lego. The ANLEX lists all the words and all their various inflexions that occur in the New Testament. Thus, it is not necessary to know that "enegka" (= I brought or bore) is the aorist of "phero" (= I bring or bear) because ANLEX lists both and many more. (Therefore, this is the Greek equivalent of the much older Analytical Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon.)

Secondly, the definitions are extensive and always show the variety and shades of meaning that each word can take. The origin and structure of each word is also explained. This book is an essential tool for anyone wanting to study or read the original text of the New Testament.

This thing is great! For any one who is a student of New Testament Greek and has trouble remembering the seemingly endless list of forms that each word can take on (which I assume would be almost everyone), this thing is priceless. Each word can be looked up in every form in which it occurs in the NT, so even if your not sure of the lexical form you can still look up the word in a matter of seconds.
