What would be the most efficient way to search for the occurrences in which the Greek preposition εἰς  eis is translated "in"  in, say, the NKJV?

Graham's given you the best way to do it. The translation wheel of the Bible Word study will get you to these results as well.

Graham - I find the bracketed search syntax <Lemma = lbs/el/εἰς> difficult unless I start by right-clicking on an instance in the text. I use lemma:εἰς ANDEQUALS in but I get 348 where your search finds 364. What is the difference between these two searches?

I know what you mean!!

I don't know - I have executed the same search that I think you are doing and get 364 hits

The most likely explanation is that we are using different resources.

Can you post a screenshot of your search so that we can compare?

Thanks, Graham

You're probably using a different translation of the Bible.

Appears Morph Search Analysis grouping by Resource shows number of occurrences vis Morph Search Verse results that count lemma and translation results:

The difference was simply searching the NKJV vs. the NASB. Thanks.
