Hi, does anyone know if I can use BibleWorks (I have version 6) to find the meaning of a name - probably a Hebrew name? For example we know that Melchizadek means 'King of Righteousness', but is there a way for BibleWorks to show me that from the text?

I think that somewhere there is a name lookup - but maybe not in BibleWorks?

Many thanks,

Ronnie

Most likely someone will know a better way to view this information in Bibleworks. The closest I found was hovering over a word and viewing Stephen's "Biographical Bible" information from the Analysis window. However the thought came to me to try an external link to CCEL's Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (http://www.ccel.org/ccel/hitchcock/bible_names.html) The problem was I couldn't figure out how to sent the selected English word to the External Link Manager. So to add question to question, does anyone know how to do this?

If you hover your mouse over a Hebrew word BibleWorks automatically gives you the meaning of the name in the auto-info window.
