There are concordances within the Reference Collection. Here are the call numbers for a few:

R 220.5208 G655N NIV Exhaustive Concordance
R 220.52 W578e Eerdmans’ Analytical Concordance (RSV)
R 220.52 S923e 2007 Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible

Concordances give book, chapter and verse location of an individual word, typically provided in context. It maybe helpful to think of it as key word searching. To find a specific bible verse, use the most unique word with in the verse as the keyword.

Analytical concordances provide the English word's Greek or Hebrew counterpart. Scholars use analytical concordances to study how individual words are used and translated into English.
