benediction, a prayer for God’s blessing on someone or a prayer recognizing that blessing has been given.

Paul J. Achtemeier, Harper & Row and Society of Biblical Literature, Harper’s Bible Dictionary (San Francisco: Harper & Row, 1985), 103.

Have fumbled around with Factbook, Bible Browser, Sense Lexicon and other Guides but have not found a means of searching for all the benedictions in the Bible.

Anyone want to take a shot at it?

i have tried the same question - but no luck with LOGOS. Have compiled my own list doing Google searches of the web. Try this as a start:  http://bit.ly/2CZXsdy 

Might be a good project for a personal book to share with other LOGOS users.

Blessings,
Floyd

Some good lists here. The foundation for a passage list I think.

The Factbook articles on Benediction and Blessing could benefit from that passage list as they contain 2 Cor 13:14 and a couple more.. But they point to several encyclopedias, of which Baker's has a useful list under Blessing.

As for searching, right click 2 Cor 13:14 in a bible like ESV and find the Preaching Theme "Blessing and Cursing". The suggested Search for {Section <PreachingTheme = Blessing and Cursing>} gives many useful passages. The Factbook article on Blessing suggests {Section <Culture = Blessing>} but it falls short, not even providing 2 Cor 13:14. However, it provides about 25 results not in the Preaching Theme when you search for {Section <Culture = Blessing>}  NOT INTERSECTS {Section <PreachingTheme = Blessing and Cursing>}.

You could also try searching for: {Section <LiteraryTyping = Final Blessing>}

Also try: {Section <LiteraryTyping = Blessing>}

Andrew Batishko (Faithlife):

You could also try searching for: {Section <LiteraryTyping = Final Blessing>}

Also try: {Section <LiteraryTyping = Blessing>}

Similar to {Section <Culture = Blessing>} they only add incrementally (4 results) to the Preaching Theme.

A more positive view is to say that they add 22 results to {Section <Culture = Blessing>} incl. 2 Cor 13:14. It would be difficult to sort all the cursings from the blessings in the Preaching Theme (at least 129 out of 369 are "curses").
