I right-clicked on a participle in the Greek text and got the menu. I then clicked on the morphology code and got: <LogosMorphGr = VPAP-SNM> I searched all open resources and got BIBLE results. Great, but not what I was looking for. I switched the search from All Open Resources to Wallace's Grammar and got - nothing.

It would be great if these kinds of morph tags were linked to articles in the Grammars (for both Hebrew and Greek). How much easier would it be for the exegete.

Maybe also tagged to the verse under consideration as one additional option. I know the verses can be searched in Wallace and other grammars. I have also created Concordance searches which have been very helpful. This is just another possibility.

Hi Ron

Ron Corbett:

If you run an exegetical guide on the verse, you'll be able to access tagging from the Lexham Syntactic Greek New Testament, which has this sort of analysis. For the below, I ran an exegetical guide on Matt 5.4, and looked at the first participle. The LSGNT annotates this as a substantival participle, and the glossary article links to further discussion of this in BDF, Wallace, and Smyth.

We're considering ways to integrate this sort of analysis more tightly in the Greek NT, but that is not a simple or quick thing. For now the best place to go is the Exegetical Guide.
