Romans 10:6 has a definite article in clause, which does not agree with πίστις so working on Syntax Search modification that finds Romans 10:6 while excluding Romans 1:12

Syntax Search modification finds Romans 10:6 anarthrous use of πίστις

SBL Edition does not have Romans 16:26

Shared both Syntax Searches with Faithlife Group Logos Syntax Searching => https://faithlife.com/logos-syntax-searching/documents

Modification added Syntax Search for Determiner that did not agree with Noun, which can cause determiner to appear up to three times in results per noun.

Could that search for πίστις be the most epic syntax search ever? CoolYes

While for "pistis" it works just as well as the Morph Query document search, for ἀλήθεια your syntax search actually works better, precisely because it has the syntax information.

When I changed the Morph Query to ἀλήθεια, the Morph Query document returned 45 hits, compared to 46 for the Syntax Search. The Morph Query was missing one anarthrous noun, in 2 Cor 7:14, where the phrase ἡ ἐπὶ Τίτου ἀλήθεια confuses the Morph Query. Here the article is actually a pronomial article, acting as a relative pronoun in the phrase ἡ καύχησις ἡμῶν ἡ ἐπὶ Τίτου, and doesn't modify ἀλήθεια, which is anarthrous.

The Morph Query document could easily have the ability to successfully run this search. We can already filter by "pronoun type", "conjunction subtype", "adverb/particle type", etc. but there is no option for "article type", even though the data is available in the SBLGNT, where definite articles are classified as "attributive articles", while in 2 Cor 7:14 the article is classified as a "pronomial article." I'll post a petition in the Beta forum for that functionality.

Rick Brannon has put together a simple Syntax Search that finds anarthrous nouns. Seems to work great! He has posted it to the Logos Syntax Searching Faithlife group as "OpenText: Anarthrous αληθεια". Here is a photo of it adapted for πίστις:
