  • Does anyone know how to limit the frequency occurrences when doing a morph search? For example, I would like to know how many present, active or mid./pass. indicatives occur in 1 Corinthians at least 5x's. I can set the parts of speech up (@VP[AU]), choose my search range (1 Cor.) and source (NA28), but I can't figure out how to limit the search results so that I don't have 705 results in 326 verses.
    1. I am very new and struggling with the search engine. It seems very inconsistent in response to words. How do you do a basic search to translate from hebrew to english? How do you do a basic search to translate hebrew to transliterate?
      1. Hi Roderick - and welcome. I'm not quite sure what you are trying to do. I don't know Hebrew but I do know there isn't a simple translation from it to English. Instead of using the search engine have you looked at the Bible Word Study Guide for this? Right-click the word, select the lemma and then Bible Word Study - https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016462892-Bible-Word-Study-Greek- outlines doing this in Greek but the same principles apply for Hebrew. Then the Lemma section provides easy access to lexicons to show how the word has been translated while the translation ring shows how the word is translated in a particular version (first image) Or if you want to see where a Hebrew word is translated with a particular English word you can use a Bible Search with the INTERSECTS operator such as: <Lemma = lbs/he/בַּ֫יִן> INTERSECTS between Does this help at all? If you provide more details of what you are trying to achieve, we can probably point you in the right direction. Graham

        Clicking שְׁמַ֖ע in the Lexham Hebrew Bible (LHB) with Tools => Information open (Update on Click) causes Information sections to populate, which includes Definition and Word Info that have transliteration after Hebrew word: e.g. šāmaʿ & šmʿ Logos Help Glossary has Untransliteration & Transliteration Mouse hover on שְׁמַ֖ע has pop-up in LHB Tab showing Morphology & English Gloss
    2. How would I search for various forms of the prepositional phrase "in Christ"? This would involve several possible forms: (1) Greek preposition en followed by dative of Christ, (2) simple dative case of Christ without the preposition, (3) Greek preposition en followed by some reference to Christ (such as a pronoun, "in Him," or "in whom"), (4) simple dative case of some term that refers to Christ.
      1. Thanks. That's helpful. I'll give it a try.
      2. Some Greek NT verses have a postpositive conjunction OR definite article: 1) lemma:ἐν BEFORE 2 WORDS lemma:Χριστός@ND 3) lemma:ἐν BEFORE 2 WORDS <Person Jesus>
      3. Good point. Using "BEFORE 2 WORDS" may be a good adjustment to these searches.
    3. How do I source and use tools to project data in a graphic format such as chatrs and tables. For example a sripture pericope comparison in different bibles.
      1. Tools menu has Passage Analysis that includes Compare Pericopes
      2. You can then use the Print/Export menu to send this to PowerPoint or KeyNote for presentation.
    4. What is the tool or resources that pronounces the Greek and. Hebrew for you so I can say the words correctly ?
      1. Hi Tim, the tool is called 'Pronounciation' and is under the Tools menu
      2. Thanks for your help !
      3. You can also call up the right click menu on a bible word, select the Lemma on the left hand side, and then choose 'Pronounce' from the right hand side.
    5. Help! How would I search for instances where "God" is referred to (directly or indirectly) as "good"?? Thanks!
      1. Clause search has Lexham Hebrew Bible, Swete LXX, & SBL Greek NT enabled. Personally have a custom series of Lexham Hebrew Bible and SBL Greek NT so proximity search suggestion is: <Person God> WITHIN 3 WORDS good
      2. Entity and referent tagging for <Person God> are done on the original languages. We could replace "good" with its various Greek and Hebrew lemmas. You could also replace it with our sense analysis, which is also done on the original languages. I wasn't sure if you wanted to work with the original languages or not, so I was trying to keep it friendlier. :) Because the expressions vary quite a bit, I don't think there's an easy way to construct a clause search that will catch everything you're looking for. Happy to help more if you like to see something different. I often find that for these kinds of questions, searches can get you 80% of the way there and the rest will need to be filled in from cross references, memory, topical lists of verses, etc. I end up storing the final output in a Passage List document because it's easy to find and share.
      3. You guys are great! Thank you so much!!
    6. How can I find ou get the Visual Bible Commentry Corner?
      1. Sorry - I don't understand your question. Please clarify.
      2. Two years ago I received the Visual Bible Commentary Corner, now I do not receive more and I would like to receive each day, as it had been publishing.
      3. Visit the group page (https://faithlife.com/visual-bible-commentary-corner/activity) and check your notification settings for the group.
    7. How do I find all the places where Jesus rebuked a crowed; a demon, etc?
      1. Try this in clause search: agent:Jesus verb-sense:to point out
    8. how to search for two words in the same verse not together
      1. You search them in a bible search with AND (in caps) between them, like world AND loved
      2.  — Edited

        Bible Search for two words looks for both of the words being in one verse: e.g. Lord (anxious OR worry) has same results as Lord AND (anxious OR worry) that search for Lord in a verse, which also has anxious OR worry. The AND can be changed to proximity: e.g. Lord WITHIN 10 WORDS (anxious OR worry) that searches within one verse in a Bible while Basic Search boundary is one chapter so proximity search finds Philippians 4:5-6 Bible searches Lord anxious as well as Lord AND anxious includes Fuzzy Bible Search
      3. , this may not be what you're trying to do, but if you want to make sure they're not right next to each other, you could search for (world AND love) ANDNOT (world WITHIN 1 WORD love). This will find all verses containing both world and love, excluding the versions where world and love are right next to each other.
    9. Here's a great example of how you can search your highlights for key words. I'm preaching on anxiety and I wanted to find all the places in my library where I've highlighted phrases that contain the word "anxious" (or its synonyms). In the attached image, I found a great Piper quote that I underlined recently. In another highlight search, I have over 200 hits. I want to narrow that down a bit and so I need some advice. I want to perform the same search, but I want to find ONLY the highlights where I've also taken a corresponding note. I don't care about the content of the note, I just want to find ones where I've made a note. If I've made a note, something was important to me and I want to be able to see what it was. Any ideas on how to perform this search?
