Some tagging mistakes

If you make a Bible search with: <Sense angel> AND NOT <Person Angel of the Lord> there some tagging mistakes
Gen. 24:7 ה֗וּא יִשְׁלַ֤ח מַלְאָכוֹ֙ לְפָנֶ֔יךָ should be tagged as "Angel of the Lord" because it's his Angel.
24:40 מַלְאָכ֤וֹ
28:12 מַלְאֲכֵ֣י אֱלֹהִ֔ים
32:2  מַלְאֲכֵ֥י אֱלֹהִֽים
Judges 5:23 מַלְאַ֣ךְ יְהוָ֔ה
2 Sam. 14:20  מַלְאַ֣ךְ הָאֱלֹהִ֔ים
24:16 וּמַלְאַ֤ךְ יְהוָה֙
1 Kings 19:7 מַלְאַ֨ךְ יְהוָ֤ה׀

There are actually more.

Now if you reverse the search and search for <Person Angel of the Lord>AND NOT <Sense angel> you will not find the mentioned verses although they clearly refer to the Angel of the Lord.

There's always a degree of subjectivity in these assignments. I would agree that "angel of the Lord" is a candidate, but not necessarily "his Angel" (as all angels are "his").

BTW the more accurate query is <Sense angel> NOT INTERSECTS <Person Angel of the Lord> as INTERSECTS  restricts the comparison of tags to the same manuscript word/phrase. AND NOT will be fooled by the presence of both tags in separate words/phrases and give fewer results.

Dave, thank you for the clarification. I agree with you that "his Angel" should not be tagged as "angel of the Lord" so we are left with these verses where "angel of the Lord" is tagged as "angel"
