By Rodney Decker: a fine page on the Bauer, Arndt, Gingrich, Danker Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature featuring powerpoint presentation on the history of this lexicon with pictures; there are links to reviews of the new edition and more.

Originally designed as a programme to search and display the data on the TLG CD-ROM (now available exclusively as a subscription-only online service), this excellent piece of free software now incorporates the full Liddell-Scott dictionary for offline work.

Perseus’s online version of the last, 9th edition of A Greek-English Lexicon by Henry George Liddell, Robert Scott and Henry Stuart Jones (Oxford: Clarendon, 1940). An excellent resource that is often able to provide links to the texts listed in the lexicion. Search also from the Chicago interface listed above. – There does not appear to be a scanned, PDF-based version of this standard dictionary in its last edition, though the previous, 8th ed. (1897) is available at archive.org, both in the Harper & Brothers edition (New York, 1897), and in the American Book Company edition (New York, 1897). Note the very large file size of these two items at archive.org.

At Crosswalk: “based on Thayer’s and Smith’s Bible Dictionary plus others, this is keyed to the large Kittel and the Theological Dictionary of the New Testament.” You can search or browse the lexicon and you can listen to the pronunciation of each word.
