I've searched on the forum, but been unable to find the answer to this (although I suspect there will probably be an easy one!).

I'm trying to search for all occurrences in the Old Testament for "Yahweh Elohim" (in the original language); I have no problems searching for the individual words, but can't find how to search for both at the same time. My original thought was to undertake a search using either the lemmas or Strong's number, but I'm unsure how to search for them both at the same time.

Hi Drew

i don't have access to my computer at the moment but sounds like you want to use "Proximity Operators"

For many translations you could search for  "Lord God" (with quotes), but to search a Hebrew bible you can use the lemmas in Morph Search

  • enter h:yahweh to see choices ---> lemma:יהוה
  • enter h:elohim --> lemma:אֱלֹהִים
  • search for lemma:יהוה BEFORE 1 WORD lemma:אֱלֹהִים

The lemmas may be different as I used BHW 4.18 with Westminster Morphology. For more info see
