what are some good books that look specifically at idioms in Greek?

Having been a student and teacher of modern languages (Spanish and French as teacher, German as student), I'd like to get a work on Greek idioms that groups them either by frequency, topically, or alphabetically rather than by grammatical category as Moule's work does (which I have, and consider useful despite that limitation). Idiom books for French, Spanish, and German I have group them either by frequency, topically, or alphabetically. Along the same line, if anybody knows of existing materials for learning Biblical Hebrew idioms, I'd be grateful for information on that, too.
