 Dear Anthony,

 IMHO Trench is a "classic" which "groweth not old". It is useful for sorting
 out the nuances separating one word from its synonym(s). You need to put it
 alongside Kittel's /Theological Wordbook/; but that too is dated.
 Let BDAG have the last word!

 If you haven't yet invested in the new BDAG (not the older BAGD), then sell
 your garment and buy one! (Luke 22:36).
