Graham Criddle:
EDIT: looking again at your OT results, the first one (Gen 17:5) seems to be a false positive as the term "father" seems to be referring to Abraham as opposed to God

Clause search in Hebrew Bible:

subject:God subject-lemma:אָב

has some results to consider:

But, again, looking at the early results the word "father" doesn't refer to God

Appears two results have desired reference:

What excellent results. Thank you so much Keep Smiling and everyone who chimed in here. I have learned a great deal about the power of this program I seem to be only scratching the surface of. Very educational. I am going to have to make more time somehow to discover more gems of Logos. God bless you all for your help and passion for the Word.

Hmmm, shouldn't Isaiah 63:16 and Isaiah 64:8 be included or am I missing something?

I think you are right.

The reason they didn't show in the Bible Facts referrent section is that the term "father" in these verses isn't tagged as "God" but as "A Father"

Would need Logos to comment on whether this is deliberate or an oversight.

And this highlights the dependence on Logos tagging for these types of searches to work properly.

Graham,

This has to be an oversight because the personal pronoun "thou" (AV) is tagged as God.

Peace to all!       *smile*

          Perhaps I should have started a new thread ...  ???

Yesterday I downloaded the new 5.1RC2 -- I realise that not everyone is ready for this yet ...  it is a release candidate ...  almost gold   ...  however, still on Beta Channel    ..   so be very careful indeed ....

However, a new feature ....  (if you happen to have it ....!!!)

In the "Go" box on the home page, type in "father"    (a topic!)

It will take you to a special layout ....

I get this:::

Note the following ...  

According to this next post ...   It doesn't seem to be working 100%  ... ( but I'm impressed!)

From the release notes:


Running ‘Go’ on a topic from the Home Page will now open a pre-made layout.

  • A Topic Guide, a Sermon Starter Guide (if      applicable), and a Bible Word Study will be displayed in the left panel.
  • Preferred Bible will be displayed in the upper right      panel.
  • Up to five Dictionaries will appear in the bottom      right panel in order of preference.

>>>>>> 

This is working correctly, with the exception of my preferred Bible; it is not appearing.

I am just getting two large panels - one on the left with the Topic Guide and Sermon Starter, and one on the right with 5 Dictionaries.

Am I missing something or is this a bug?

Hi Jerry

Jerry Bush:

Am I missing something or is this a bug?

I am getting the same thing - no preferred Bible (no Bible at all)

I will admit that I don't know how Logos would work out where to open the Bible in relation to a topic but I guess that's a different question

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........
