Recently acquired the book Gesenius's Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon, from H. W. F. Geneius.

While trying to search the word angel, I've gone to the English index and, associated with angel, could read the following

English index

The page layout looks like this (had to reduce image's quality due to upload size limits but I think you get the idea) Page layout

There's both page numbers and side numbers.

I checked what's in 49 both page and side number and 475.

One other way I could think of was to go to biblehub and found the word for angel is malak, מַלְאַךְ. From here, tried to find the word but it's hard to spot it manually in the middle of all the words with no understanding of the language. One thing I've noticed is that from page to page the words keep the same last characters (reading from left to the right). This didn't take me anywhere yet.

What can / should I do to find the information about angel in a more efficient way?

    Blue Letter Bible.org has the Gesenius entry as well as all the verses where H4397 (malak) appears. blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/… --- As for the book, maybe look for "4397" in the margins and that may make sense of the index page numbers. The index should be page # (bottom of page) and "a" or "b" is the column where entry will be found. – tblue Mar 3 at 18:08

    I have the book, but not with me. Do you see the page number at the bottom of the page? The numbers at top of page are Strong's numbers. Index goes by page, not Strong's #. – tblue Mar 3 at 18:16

    You're welcome. But won't place as an answer as I don't think your ques. fits BH rules. Surprised it hasn't been voted to close. If you start getting negative votes, just delete the question (since no answers are attached yet). – tblue Mar 3 at 18:30

    @tblue We do allow some questions about the tools used by biblical scholars – Soldarnal Mar 4 at 2:46

    @Soldarnal Yes. I don't think this deserves to be closed, myself. – Nigel J Mar 4 at 8:10
