Some definitions

A Bible concordance is a verbal index to the Bible. A simple form lists Biblical words alphabetically, with indications to enable the inquirer to find the passages of the Bible where the words occur.

University of Maryland Libraries have many concordances to the Bible and other important texts, such as for example, Talmud.  You can find them in the Libraries' catalog by doing simple searches such as "bible concordances" or "bible concordances hebrew," or "talmud concordances."
