A complete Christian dictionary : wherein the significations and severall acceptations of all the words mentioned in the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New-Testament, are fully opened, expressed, explained : also, very many ambiguous speeches, hard and difficult phrases therein contained, are plainly interpreted, cleered, and expounded : with a particular dictionary for the Canticles, or Song of Solomon, Epistle to the Hebrews, Revelation of St. John : all tending to the increase of Christian knowledge, and serving for the use of all; especially the unlearned, who have no skill in the originall languages, Hebrew and Greek, wherein the Scriptures were first written; and may be unto ministers of the Gospel, masters of families, private Christians in stead of a concordance, commentary on all the scriptures /
begun by that famous and worthy man of God, Mr. Thomas Wilson, Minister of the Word at St. Georges in Canterbury, and one of the six preachers there ; continued in the general dictionary by Mr. John Bagvvell.
