I've been using the Exegetical guide since 2006 and have long enjoyed reading with this companion. With Logos 4, however, it loads slowly, Hebrew hollow verbs don't display as hollow, and the Greek parsing is often redundant. I've often been tempted to return to Logos 3 for the superior parsing, but recently decided to move back to BHS and NA27 which do identify hollow verbs and parse Greek appropriately.

Am I missing something in the Exegetical guide, or are there still issues that need to be worked out?

Hi can you give some more details on your thoughts for Hebrew hollow verbs, their display problems and maybe what you are looking for?

Here's the hollow verb. logos 3, the BHS, and lexicons list this as mim-waw-lamed, not ml. 

Why is active listed? There is a Qal Passive, but otherwise, Hebrew has Pual, Niphal, Hophal, etc, not "active and passive".

Why does it say anything more than wayyiqtol? It would make sense to indicate "imperfect" or "wayyiqtol". It's redundant otherwise.

In a previous post Logos explained that elements before the  plus-minus are elements all sources agree on; those after are those that at least one but not all sources offer as elements.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
