I'm getting sick of every Bible search returning apocryphal results. I simply don't want to see Sirach or the Wisdom of Solomon, etc. in my Bible searches. It's getting to the point where I don't like doing a search because I have to sift through so many non-Biblical references. (I realize some people consider them "Biblical" but I don't)

If I can't exclude them can I somehow remove them?

Hi Micah - and welcome to the forums

You shouldn’t be seeing apocryphal results - unless:

  • You are looking in the Fuzzy Search results section
  • You are using a Bible which includes apocryphal books

Are either of those the case?

It's the fuzzy search - sorry I should have been more specific. I find the fuzzy search very useful but I guess it ignores all constraints like specific Bibles. . I'd really like to remove the apocryphal books from the Bibles that have them.

Yes, I’m afraid it does ignore passage constraints.

This is a long-standing issue which has been acknowledged as a bug as per https://community.logos.com/forums/p/148370/922009.aspx#922009 but it has been this way for a long time.

I do hope it gets resolved.

Well, at least there's an explanation. Every word in the English language seem to have a fuzzy connection to Sirach. lol

Thanks for the information. I too look forward to a fix.

As do I. This is why I don't use the fuzzy search right now. I think I've only use it once or twice. Would like to start experimenting, but also want accurate search results.

Could FL comment on when a fix for this bug might get some traction?
