What is the easiest way to find a summary of how many times a Greek word appears in the New Testament within a specific passage? I know how to look this up for individual words but the list I'm looking for is a bit different.

For instance. I'm currently studying Col. 2:6-23 which I know has many words that only occur once (hapax legomenon) or just a few times in the New Testament. I was hoping to quickly generate a list that summarizes how many time each word occurs.

Suggestions?

You can create a new Word List from the Documents menu. Then click 'Add', and type your passage in. It will give you the total of times that word occurs in that passage, not in the NT.

That is helpful Mark but I was also hoping that it would list the total number of times each word in that passage occurred in the NT.

If you want the totals to show the number of occurrences in the NT, it's a bit harder. The only way I know of is to create a Word List for the entire NT, and then merge it with your Colossians word list, using the 'intersection' method. That will give you a new list, of all the words in the Colossians passage, and with the two counts added together (the entire NT count, plus the Colossians count). Obviously that means the count is wrong for our purposes.

You would then need to export the merged list and the Colossians list into Excel, and move the columns around and create a simple formula to calculate the right number of occurrences. You're left with the words from Colossians, but the count from the NT as a whole.

<edit>Make sure your lists are sorted alphabetically before exporting. If the two lists are not in the same order, you formulas will probably be using the wrong data. My first attempt had the wrong figures because I didn't do this.</edit>

Once you're done, you'll be able to see that there are fifteen hapax legomenas in the passage, including καταβραβεύω (to condemn) and φιλοσοφία (philosophy).

Thanks for the suggestion and showing how to do it. As you said, it is complicated.

In my "ideal world" I thought their may have been a Logos resource that actually listed each word that occurs in the text and shows the number of times it is in a passage and the total number of times it is in the NT.

I thought for sure I had seen such a resource in the past but I may have been mistaken.

It would be nice if when we did the intersection we could choose for the counts not to be added together. But although it's annoying to have to go into Excel, you can do  the whole exercise only takes two to three minutes, particularly if you have a word list for the entire NT saved already.

Room4more - what book did you get that from? Maybe Logos would consider carrying it.

I still wish that there were a resource that would list the occurrence of each NT word on the fly. I still think there is for I remember using one when I first learned Greek.

It was a personal study years ago, when I read you were requesting hapax legomena from Colossians I remembered i still had the writ.....for some reason I have failed to find a 'resource' that contains this. Vincent's is about the best for doing this type of search...He has compiled some lists of 'used once' in the NT at the end of each Book.....[probably wouldn't hurt to check my list, after all it was umpteen years ago when I made it....]

It's a good study to find all of them and see how the word(s) are used, Bro.George would like this.........

VUALA...........It finally came to me.

When I first learned to read Greek I used to use a resource called "A Reader's Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament" by Sakae Kubo. It was an excellent tool that would help me with vocabulary as I read (before the digital age). It lists the "special vocabulary" for each NT book and then goes through each book verse by verses listing the words that occur. The first number was the number of times the word was in the particular book and the second number was the number of times it was in the NT.Then it gave an English translation in context. It was a great tool. Has anyone else used this book in their past?

I don't have the book any more since I gave it to my son who is just learning to read Greek himself but here is an example from 2 Tim. 2:4 στρατολογέω (1 1) enlist soldiers.

I can't see Logos ever carrying a book like this since the software does so much of what the book does but one thing that Logos software does do is show the occurrences both within the book and within the NT.

But maybe there is another resource that does the same thing? I can only hope someone will point it out to me.

Yes, no longer have hard copy.

Logos 5 can find lemmas that occur with one Louw-Nida domain in a Bible book.  For example, a search:

<LN 1-93.615> BEFORE 1 WORD "1" BEFORE 7 WORDS Col

in "The Lexham Analytical Lexicon to the Greek New Testament" finds 54 lemmas that have singular Louw-Nida domain usage in Colossians:

To find lemmas with 1 or 2 Louw-Nida domain tags that includes Colossians usage, modified search:

<LN 1-93.615> BEFORE 1 WORD ("1","2") BEFORE 7 WORDS Col

Theological Lexicon of the Old Testament has a list of hapax legomena in the OT, I could not find a list of the entire NT anywhere; there are some references to specific books, like I found a chart of the words for Proverbs.

Thanks for the lesson in searching Nouw-Nida. I don't think I ever would have thought of it that way.

I may be misunderstanding what you are asking for, but doesn't the Enhanced Strong's Lexicon do most of this?

There are many ways to discover this information but I am looking for a way that puts them all together in a way that Sakae Kubo does. Right now I'm beginning to believe that there may not be another resource like it which somewhat surprises me.

It's always good to have a hard copy.......especially when dealing w/this electronic age. Remember "The Book of Eli"/?
