Another free Bible concordance program which I haven't tried:
The Sword - from http://www.crosswire.org/
- many versions and texts are available for free download
- they haven't yet negotiated rights to allow the unlocking of commercial versions such as NIV and BHS
If you need pointed Hebrew, accented Greek and generally more sophistication, you will have to pay for it. The following are the best of the commercial Bible Software, roughly in order of usefulness:
AcCordance (Mac)
- http://www.gramcord.org/mac/accord.htm
Bible Windows (PC)
- http://www.silvermnt.com/
Bible Works (PC)
- http://www.bibleworks.com/
Gramcord (PC)
- http://www.gramcord.org/
Logos Bible Software (PC)
- http://www.logos.com/products/bstudy.asp
QuickVerse (PC)
- http://www.quickverse.com/
