- how can i search for every occurence of ὑπο but only with the genitive?
- Make sure you are using Cascadia Syntax Graphs of NT: SBL Edition and have All Passages. (Not the Cascadia Syntax Graphs of NT DATASET)
- Thank you. That is the way I already had it. I'm sorry, but I can't figure out what else I am doing wrong.
- Nathan Jordan, can you post an image of your query here as a comment so we can see what you've got?
- How can I search in the bible for every instance in which the pronoun "his" refers to God. For example all his judgements, all his mercies, etc.
- Also, on desktop you can view the results in Analysis view and group by Next Word to see the most common patterns. https://ref.ly/logos4/Search?kind=BibleSearch&q=his+INTERSECTS+person%3aGod&syntax=v2&documentlevel=verse&match=casedstem&in=raw%3aTop%7cDataType%3dbible%7cResourceType%3dtext.monograph.bible%7cResultLimit%3d1%7cTitle%3dTop%2520Bible%2520(NIV)&viewkind=analysis
- This has been very helpful. Thank you so much!
- My pleasure!
- Hello! I'm trying to search for instances of asyndeton between sentences in John, and asyndeton between sentences in dialogue or indirect discourse (also in John). Can logos syntax search help me with this? Thanks
- Thanks! Is there a way to narrow it down to indirect discourse? I appreciate the help
- The following search command line will remove all verses which contain "Reported Speech" according to the Lexham Discourse GNT. You will still need to sort through them for the passages that contain indirect discourse. grammaticalConstructions:"Asyndeton (Clause)" IN bible:John NOT LDGNT:"Reported Speech"
- Very helpful! I think I have what I need. Thanks!
- I would like to find a sentence in AF-Syntax Graphs with the most common different grammatical persons
- Can syntax search help me find and highlight words that share certain hebrew consonants with a given word?
- Tim Hall, can you provide an example of what you're trying to find? That'll help us recommend the right solution.
- I'm looking to find every person who is being joyful
- Jack Maroon, I assume this means you want to find every verse in the Bible where a person is being joyful, is that right? I can't think of a way to generate a list of people, but there are a few ways to find verses where someone is rejoicing. You could start with a Bible search for this: sense:"to rejoice (expression)" OR sense:"to rejoice (feeling)" OR sense:"to rejoice together" https://ref.ly/logos4/Search?kind=BibleSearch&q=sense%3a%22to+rejoice+(expression)%22+OR+sense%3a%22to+rejoice+(feeling)%22+OR+sense%3a%22to+rejoice+together%22&syntax=v2&documentlevel=verse&match=stem&in=raw%3aSingle%7cResourceId%3dLLS%3aNIV2011&viewkind=passages You'll need to work through the results to see who is doing the rejoicing, but this gives you a good starting point. If you run the search in your Bible as an inline search, you could use the Factbook visual filter to more easily identify the subject of the rejoicing. The Bible Browser sidebar is one possible way to generate a list of people includes in verses where someone is rejoicing, but there are two things that make it not quite what you're looking for: (1) You can find only one sense at a time. You can't stack multiple senses like you can in search. You need to do each sense separately. (2) The people who occur in the verses may not be the ones doing the rejoicing. You'd have to check each verse to verify. https://ref.ly/logos4/BibleBrowser?res=LLS%3aNIV2011&context=Verse&facets=CategoryId%3dSense%5e1%7cCategoryTitle%3dSenses%7cTermId%3dws.rejoice.v.02%7cTermTitle%3dto%2520rejoice%2520(expression) Disclaimer: These aren't all the sense for joy/rejoicing. You may also want to include those if you want your list to be exhaustive.
- What is the syntax to search all the writings of Charles Spurgeon for references to Ephesians 1? I can search his sermons using the template below, but how do i expand this to all the works of Spurgeon? sermon:(creator:Spurgeon AND references:Ephesians)
- Aaron, "Syntax Search" is a search type that is reserved for syntax searches in the Bible. So, technically speaking, your question does not belong to this group. However, I understand that you ask for the "search syntax" that will find you all places in Spurgeons writings where he refers to Eph 1. For that, you need to do the following (Logos 10): 1. In the search window, select Books search 2. One level further down, click 'All Books' and type: "author:spurgeon" (without quotes) 3. One level further down, type: "eph 1" (without quotes) and select the red bookmark label for Ephesians 1 from the drop down menu 4. Run the search
- Thanks so much! this worked really well. I didn't realize those were additional filters at the top.
- Hello all. What is the syntax to search for occurrences when an angel appears to someone?
- Les Corbett, if you have the Angels, Demons, and Deities dataset, you could do a search of the Bible like `supernaturalBeing:type:*Angel*` (Logos 10 syntax) for an initial crack at your query.
- Thank you Rick Brannan (Faithlife) yes, I have the dataset and it is very helpful. What I'm after is biblical evidence of the initial response from the people they spoke to. Was it fear, surprise, or casual?
- OK, great to hear you were aware of the dataset. I think the dataset can help find the angelic interactions, but only a close read of the interactions will provide you the data you need to answer your questions. (And you're asking a good question!)
- Hi Everyone, Genesis 1:28 has five Hebrew imperatives. That seems quite unique. Is it possible to do a Logos search of Lexham Hebrew Bible with the criteria that the verse has two or more imperatives? Any suggestions on how to do this type of search would be greatly appreciated. Art W
- Arthur, I noticed that as well. I'm not sure why the result count is off. Let me ask the team.
- Looks like וְתִקְעוּ has a kethiv/qere, so it's getting counted twice but only showing once.
- Interesting. Thank you for the help.
