What is the command line that I would use in doing this morph search?

I have found 4 "the old fashion way," Big Smile but I wanted to double-check to see if I have found them all.

Thanks for the help!

I would try a clause search with - "object:Holy Spirit verb-morph:V??M"

I have never done a clause search before, so this was good to learn!

BUT this search did not pick up Ephesians 4:30 or 5:18 or Galatians 5:16. Why is that?

Good question!

And a partial answer is that the search I suggested was too restrictive - the "object" condition refers to a direct object and that isn't always the case. A better approach would be "person:Holy Spirit verb-morph:V??M" even though that, for some reason I can't explain at the moment, doesn't return Eph 4:30

Maybe that one verse isn't tagged correctly?

Anyway, Graham, thanks for the help!

You're correct, there was a tagging error in Eph 4:30. We'll get it fixed.
