Synonym Strong's Numbers
Sometimes, a word or phrase has individual Strong's numbers assigned to it and it has an additional Strong's number for the entire phrase. In Jud 20:18 the phrase "house of God" is coded as "house { [H1004]} { [H1004]} of God { [H430]} { [H430]} { [H1008]} { [H1008]}" In this case the phrase could also mean place Bethel which has the Strong's number { [H1008]}. Only by context can you distinguish proper names in Hebrew from individual words. Hence translators do arrive at different renderings for the same Hebrew.
