I'd like to be able to generate a vocabulary word list in Hebrew for a chapter of the Bible based on the lemma-frequency occurrence in the Old Testament.  For example, I'd like a fast way to pull all lemmas from Exodus 3 that occur in the Old Testament between 20-99 times, and create a vocabulary word list from them.

As an example, the word הֵן (favour, grace, charm) occurs 69 times in the O.T. according to the concordance tool, but only one time in Exodus 3.  However, I'd still like this word identified as a vocab word due to its frequency in the Old Testament. 

I tried to generate a morph word list of the entire OT using @V OR @N OR @J OR @D so that I could create a word list, manually delete the occurrence range I don't want, and then use the merge-intersection with a similarly-generated word list on a specific chapter.  However, even with a pretty fast computer this search ended up hanging Logos (unresponsive app) on multiple attempts. 

Logos Now's concordance tool will generate the lemmas for the OT, and will sort by frequency.  I can also limit to a passage (like Exodus 3).  However, if I try to combine the occurrence filter and limit the passage, it looks for the number of occurrences in the passage instead of in the Old Testament.  As an example, I cannot pull the word above as it only occurs one time in the chapter.

I am able to export the first LN concordance result to Excel, export a different LN concordance search to a different sheet, and can do some manipulation  to (eventually) get to what I want, but this seems cumbersome. Am I missing an elegant way to get to the information I want without leaving Logos?

Thanks in advance!

If elegant it is still cumbersome - see https://community.logos.com/forums/p/116828/767013.aspx#767013

(when you combine two Word lists this way you get the correct count for occurrences in the OT, but for words in Ex 3 you have to generate word lists for the rest of the OT i.e. Gen - Ex 2 and Ex 4 - 2 Chron in a Hebrew bible).
