L-S means Liddell & Scott (or possibly also Liddell, Scott and Jones),
the classical Greek lexicon.

ABS means the American Bible Society (related to UBS, the United Bible
Societies) and I believe was most recently used on this list in
connection with the _Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament Based
on Semantic Domains_ by Johannes P. Louw and Eugene A. Nida, published
by the United Bible Societies.

BAGD means Bauer, Arndt, Gingrich and Danker, referring to the second
edition of _A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other
Early Christian Literature_.  This is the standard lexicon for English
speaking scholars of early Christian literature.
