"New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update" and Strong's Numbers


Some Strong's Numbers appear to be incorrect in the NASB95. The reason for this is that Strong's numbers in the "New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update" are keyed to the "New American Standard Hebrew-Aramaic and Greek Dictionaries: Updated Edition," rather than the "Enhanced Strong's Lexicon."


In the NASB95, with View set to 'Inline Strong's Numbers', the word "awe" in Hebrews 12:28 has the number 1190a next to it.  However, there is no 1190a entry in the "Enhanced Strong's Lexicon," and the word for 1190 in the Lexicon does not fit. Below is the information that comes up by default in the tip window when hovering over the word or number.

 1190 Δερβαῖος, Δουβέριος [Derbaios /der·bah·ee·os/] adj. From 1191; GK 1291 and 1523; AV translates as “of Derbe” once. 1 a native of Derbe.
The KJV translates the word in Hebrew 12:28 as "reverence", and the Strong's number is 127:
127 αἰδώς, δέος [aidos /ahee·doce/] n f. Perhaps from 1 (as a negative particle) and 1492 (through the idea of downcast eyes); TDNT 1:169; TDNTA 26; GK 133 and 1290; Two occurrences; AV translates as “shamefacedness” once, and “reverence” once. 1 a sense of shame or honour, modesty, bashfulness, reverence, regard for others, respect.
The correct Strong's information for "awe" 1190a in the NASB95 is:

1190a.     δέος deos; from δείδω deidō (to fear); fear, reverence:— awe(1).
