Can someone please tell me how to search for the imperative forms of a certain verb in the Greek NT?

Thank you!

Hi Sean,

Let me help you out.  

1. Click on the Search Icon

2. Select "Morph"

3. Make sure you are searching the NT and using the Greek Morphology.

4. In the search box type the @ symbol and L4mac will give you a drop down list of options for searching.  Click on the options you want and leave the others blank. 

Here is a screenshot of my search of the NT for the Imperative.

Hi J.R.,

I know this is a very old thread, but I have a similar question.

What if I want to find all the places in the NT where the word "mercy" is used as an imperative? I searched for "show mercy" and this gave me 4 references in the epistles. I already have all the NT imperatives marked with a visual filter so by checking each of the four references I saw that Jude 22 was highlighted as an imperative. But I'm thinking there has to be a shorter way to do this. Is there a way to search for a specific verb when used only as an imperative?

Thank you!

The morph search is still the way to go - but focused on a particular word
