In Logos, is it possible to search for a Strong's number translated as a specified word or words?

Example:

In BibleWorks (I am a former user), searching:

.month@03391

Finds all occurrences of the English word "month" tagged with Strong's 03391 (in BibleWorks, the leading 0 indicates Hebrew; so, it is the equivalent of H3391 in this case).

Thanks,

Chuck

Here's what I did (see image).

I was able to type the numbers 3391 in the search panel and a drop-down with many options appeared.  I scrolled down the the Strong's Hebrew datatype and then added the ANDEQUALS or NOTEQUALS operator.

I also right-clicked on any word in the OT, selected the Strong's option on the left, then selected the SEARCH button next to "copy reference" to grab the search string for strong's #s.

Well done Karl!

If you uncheck "Match all word forms" in the Search menu (top right) you will get results for "month" only. Using INTERSECTS instead of ANDEQUALS (or EQUALS) will provide a couple more results (see https://wiki.logos.com/Search_HELP#Proximity ).

<H3391> is a useful shorthand for Strong's Hebrew (https://wiki.logos.com/Search_HELP#id:1.2e_References ).

e.g. <H3391> INTERSECTS month

Chuck, i suggest you check out the Bible Sense Lexicon (documentation). That's our attempt to provide an accessible way to search meanings across both OT and NT for those who may not have facility in the original languages. Strong's numbers were a great innovation when they were created, but that was 130 years ago: we have better tools now.
