Which original?

It's largely a matter of taste, prejudices, and your association with the 
text or the people who make it.

Most real translation today is done with the BHS & the NA27.  There's 
really not so much difference between any of them that you can point at 
one and say it is definitively the best.  Some people like the new 
critical texts because they represent lots of scholarship.  Some people 
like the older texts because of translations for which they were used, or 
because they dislike the idea of critical scholarship.

Strongs are in a bunch of our Greek texts, as someone else pointed out.  
The Hebrew might be a possibilty someday.
