Actually, if you purchase Bible Windows, you can also get the Louw-
Nida dictionary too. Any of the listed programs should give you
parsings + Lemma. I use Bible Windows and its DOS predecessor Lbase.
These give you text on screen as normal. Among many other
things, you can then select any word and ask for a parsing, basic
dictionary gloss and if you have the Louw-Nida hypertext add on, you
can see the word in a discussion of its semantic domain. All that
means is that, e.g., the word night is discussed in the broader
context of terms for time and more narrowly terms for the dark part
of the day, so in English it would be discussed with dusk, twilight,
sunset, evening, midnight, 'wee hours of the morning', etc. This way
a word is compared and contrasted with similar words to show nuances
