Hello again!  I want to compare 2 verses, Leviticus 15:16 and Deuteronomy 23:10 to see the different Hebrew words used.  Is there a way that I can bring these 2 verses next to each other?  I have often wanted to compare a range of verses but I can't figure how in Logos!  I have been pasting my references into to biblegateway.com and that is just stupid sine I have logos!

Thanks
Zeek

Generally you'd have to do it manually by opening two copies of your Bible next to each other. The exception would be if you have a Harmony that's already done it for you.

I just tried this with a passage list and I can see the two verses . .  . but can't hover over the words in question and get the Hebrew.

Zeek,

Here are a couple of other ways that may help you.

==============================================

Use the Reverse Interlinear
(you may want to review the wiki page on this)

A. You can use the Display drop down to turn On/Off the Reverse Interlinear for your Bible (note not all English translations have a Reverse Interlinear, if they do you will see the Display button)

===============================================================

Or you can use Sympathetic Highlighting with an English and a Hebrew version to see the words
(You may want to view the wiki page Sympathetic Highlighting for more info)

B. When you turn ON Sympathetic Highlighting in 2 books which are showing the same scripture, then you highlight words in one version (i.e. the blue highlighting), then Logos will highlight the same words in the other version in Gray.

C. With Sympathetic Highlighting, Logos4 will only show it for the active book. So if you have 4 books open as shown above, you will need to click on the other book (i.e. the lower ESV) to have Logos4 show the gray highlighting for the other (not shown as highlighting because i had the upper ESV selected).

That's actually much smarter than my suggestion. You can change the PL into any Bible you want, or you can show two beside each other:

(You may need to widen the panel to get a display like this.)

I also just found the post with Bob's latest update on the progress of user created harmonies:

The ability to create harmonies via Personal Books should come this year.

Take that with a bucket of salt, but perhaps before next summer...
