I am new to do advanced searches. I want to find, as my own exercise to learn this, all places where God blessed Abraham. I know it is in Gen 24:1

What I am not sure about, is when is it a Bible search and when a clause. I have put this together and it didn't reply any results.

subject:God blessed person:Abraham

I know there is something wrong about the phrase but cannot understand what.

Will appreciate it if someone can shed some light on my dark search term. Sad

(Is this the right place for something like this or is there another forum for searches and so on?)

Try this instead: <Person God> blessed <Person Abraham>

Note the use of angle brackets, no colon, and God as Person instead of Subject.

Deon Holtzhausen:
subject:God blessed person:Abraham

Replicated clause search of English "blessed" in Hebrew Bible finding no results.

For learning clause search, can use simpler search:

subject:God object:Abraham

followed by adding sense term to refine results:

subject:God sense:to bless (favor) object:Abraham

Right click in Genesis 24:1 showed sense for blessed.

Levi Durfey:
Try this instead: <Person God> blessed <Person Abraham>

Bible Search that is similar to Clause Search (albeit with different boundaries for searching):

<Person God> NEAR <Sense to bless (favor)> NEAR <Person Abraham>
