While perhaps not generally very useful, I’d like to know if there is a way to search for all verses with a particular reference, i.e., 6:2.

Thanks,

Jon

I can't help you with your query, but the only time I know of when someone did that was Donald Knuth with his edited collection of calligraphers illustrating every 3:16 verse in the Bible.

Jon Shearer:
to search for all verses with a particular reference, i.e., 6:2.

You realize that the results are dependent on the version - versification is not fixed across all versions of the text.

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

We don't support asterisk searching in data type references. If we did, {Milestone <* 6:2>} might work.

You'd have to do it the long way by running a search in your preferred Bible for

{Milestone <Genesis 6:2>}, {Milestone <Exodus 6:2>}, {Milestone <Leviticus 6:2>}, {Milestone <Numbers 6:2>}, {Milestone <Deuteronomy 6:2>}, {Milestone <Joshua 6:2>}, {Milestone <Judges 6:2>}, {Milestone <Ruth 6:2>}, {Milestone <1 Samuel 6:2>}, {Milestone <2 Samuel 6:2>}, {Milestone <1 Kings 6:2>}, {Milestone <2 Kings 6:2>}, {Milestone <1 Chronicles 6:2>}, {Milestone <2 Chronicles 6:2>}, {Milestone <Ezra 6:2>}, {Milestone <Nehemiah 6:2>}, {Milestone <Esther 6:2>}, {Milestone <Job 6:2>}, {Milestone <Psalms 6:2>}, {Milestone <Proverbs 6:2>}, {Milestone <Ecclesiastes 6:2>}, {Milestone <Song of Songs 6:2>}, {Milestone <Isaiah 6:2>}, {Milestone <Jeremiah 6:2>}, {Milestone <Lamentations 6:2>}, {Milestone <Ezekiel 6:2>}, {Milestone <Daniel 6:2>}, {Milestone <Hosea 6:2>}, {Milestone <Joel 6:2>}, {Milestone <Amos 6:2>}, {Milestone <Obadiah 6:2>}, {Milestone <Jonah 6:2>}, {Milestone <Micah 6:2>}, {Milestone <Nahum 6:2>}, {Milestone <Habakkuk 6:2>}, {Milestone <Zephaniah 6:2>}, {Milestone <Haggai 6:2>}, {Milestone <Zechariah 6:2>}, {Milestone <Malachi 6:2>}, {Milestone <Matthew 6:2>}, {Milestone <Mark 6:2>}, {Milestone <Luke 6:2>}, {Milestone <John 6:2>}, {Milestone <Acts 6:2>}, {Milestone <Romans 6:2>}, {Milestone <1 Corinthians 6:2>}, {Milestone <2 Corinthians 6:2>}, {Milestone <Galatians 6:2>}, {Milestone <Ephesians 6:2>}, {Milestone <Philippians 6:2>}, {Milestone <Colossians 6:2>}, {Milestone <1 Thessalonians 6:2>}, {Milestone <2 Thessalonians 6:2>}, {Milestone <1 Timothy 6:2>}, {Milestone <2 Timothy 6:2>}, {Milestone <Titus 6:2>}, {Milestone <Philemon 6:2>}, {Milestone <Hebrews 6:2>}, {Milestone <James 6:2>}, {Milestone <1 Peter 6:2>}, {Milestone <2 Peter 6:2>}, {Milestone <1 John 6:2>}, {Milestone <2 John 6:2>}, {Milestone <3 John 6:2>}, {Milestone <Jude 6:2>}, {Milestone <Revelation 6:2>}

Just copy and paste that into the Bible Search box.

It's not a super efficient search, but it gets the job done. Logos is smart enough to skip the invalid references.

If you want to change your reference, just paste it into a text editor and find all occurrences of 6:2 and replace them with, for example, 3:16.

{Milestone <Genesis 3:16>}, {Milestone <Exodus 3:16>}, {Milestone <Leviticus 3:16>}, {Milestone <Numbers 3:16>}, {Milestone <Deuteronomy 3:16>}, {Milestone <Joshua 3:16>}, {Milestone <Judges 3:16>}, {Milestone <Ruth 3:16>}, {Milestone <1 Samuel 3:16>}, {Milestone <2 Samuel 3:16>}, {Milestone <1 Kings 3:16>}, {Milestone <2 Kings 3:16>}, {Milestone <1 Chronicles 3:16>}, {Milestone <2 Chronicles 3:16>}, {Milestone <Ezra 3:16>}, {Milestone <Nehemiah 3:16>}, {Milestone <Esther 3:16>}, {Milestone <Job 3:16>}, {Milestone <Psalms 3:16>}, {Milestone <Proverbs 3:16>}, {Milestone <Ecclesiastes 3:16>}, {Milestone <Song of Songs 3:16>}, {Milestone <Isaiah 3:16>}, {Milestone <Jeremiah 3:16>}, {Milestone <Lamentations 3:16>}, {Milestone <Ezekiel 3:16>}, {Milestone <Daniel 3:16>}, {Milestone <Hosea 3:16>}, {Milestone <Joel 3:16>}, {Milestone <Amos 3:16>}, {Milestone <Obadiah 3:16>}, {Milestone <Jonah 3:16>}, {Milestone <Micah 3:16>}, {Milestone <Nahum 3:16>}, {Milestone <Habakkuk 3:16>}, {Milestone <Zephaniah 3:16>}, {Milestone <Haggai 3:16>}, {Milestone <Zechariah 3:16>}, {Milestone <Malachi 3:16>}, {Milestone <Matthew 3:16>}, {Milestone <Mark 3:16>}, {Milestone <Luke 3:16>}, {Milestone <John 3:16>}, {Milestone <Acts 3:16>}, {Milestone <Romans 3:16>}, {Milestone <1 Corinthians 3:16>}, {Milestone <2 Corinthians 3:16>}, {Milestone <Galatians 3:16>}, {Milestone <Ephesians 3:16>}, {Milestone <Philippians 3:16>}, {Milestone <Colossians 3:16>}, {Milestone <1 Thessalonians 3:16>}, {Milestone <2 Thessalonians 3:16>}, {Milestone <1 Timothy 3:16>}, {Milestone <2 Timothy 3:16>}, {Milestone <Titus 3:16>}, {Milestone <Philemon 3:16>}, {Milestone <Hebrews 3:16>}, {Milestone <James 3:16>}, {Milestone <1 Peter 3:16>}, {Milestone <2 Peter 3:16>}, {Milestone <1 John 3:16>}, {Milestone <2 John 3:16>}, {Milestone <3 John 3:16>}, {Milestone <Jude 3:16>}, {Milestone <Revelation 3:16>}

Here it is in a passage list: https://fl.vu/Wo4i6.

You could also do this pretty easily in Excel or Google Sheets if you had every verse in a cell and broke your references out into chapter-verse pairs.

Let me know if I can help.
