Some searches for words in all bibles return so many results it's impossible to sift through them usefully. For example, I wanted to know which bibles use "Yahweh" as a translation for יהוה. There were so many results, and I wanted to be able to collapse the results to just show the names of the Bibles which had results in them.

There's no way to do this. I'd have to page through 40 pages of results to see all the Bible versions that use this.

Displaying Bible search results in Grid quickly shows relatively few Bibles use Yahweh OR Adonai

Dreaming of Grid modification to show # of search results in a resource (first line above Resource information in pop-up)

Perform a Basic Search in type:Bible resources and display the results By Resource. The hits will be collapsed and just resource titles shown.

Great suggestion - runs much faster and gives the desired results. I'd suggest refining a bit (like going for Surface text and the biblical books only, to take out footnotes and introductory discussions) and to go By Count, since many will have some spurious hits (introduction comes up even though Gen-Rev only is asked for, there are places/people names e.g. Yahweh-Yireh...)

In the end it comes down to CJB using Adonai and four full bibles from my library using Yahweh to represent God's name.

Good idea. Thanks.
