Young's Analytical Concordance to the Bible is a concordance to the Bible compiled by Robert Young first published in 1879.


  • Hints and Helps to Bible Interpretation (only in some later editions)
  • Analytical Concordance - Each entry can contain the multiple original language words in the original language and in a phonetic vocalization into English. It also gives the extended meaning and usage of the word in the original language. This is a "Bible concordance" to the King James Version (KJV) and not a lexicon of the OT Hebrew or NT Greek languages.
  • Index lexicons to the Old and New Testaments, being a guide to parallel passages prepared by Wm. B. Stevenson.
  • The British eighth edition also includes A complete list of Scripture Proper Names as in the Authorised and Revised Versions, showing their modern pronunciation and the exact form of the original Hebrew by the same author. This appendix also has an informative introduction.

These have the title Analytical Concordance to the Bible.

The 20th American edition, first published in 1910, corresponds largely to the British 7th edition revised by W. B. Stevenson, but to which was added a further supplement, entitled A sketch of recent exploration in Bible lands by Thomas Nicol. This was originally published separately some time before its second edition which appeared in 1893.[3]

Later editions include a supplement entitled The Canon of Scripture by R. K. Harrison and Everett F. Harrison.
