What would be the best way to do a comprehensive search for all verses that refer to God's wrath? This search 

"wrath of god" OR "God's wrath" 

got 16 results in the NIV. Is there a better way?

Josh, I get 25 verses of results when I search for "wrath NEAR God" in the (2011) NIV.

This may be the best yet...

dding Anger to the search before fury, resulted in a couple hundred more hits... just play around with the word lists until you get to what you're looking for :)

This sort of search syntax is also worth a try:

I also tried this:

This will search for anytime God is speaking about wrath.

Where did you learn that Speaker can be used as a milestone? It's not on this page and I've read through most threads on Milestones and no one mentioned that... Or is that considered a Milestone?

It is considered a label. See here. There has been additional discussion elsewhere. Look for Speaker Label.

Speaker and Milestone are {Extensions} and provide text (from a Speaker) or a range of text (Milestone) that can be searched using WITHIN.

This sort of search syntax is also worth a try:

A variation is (wrath, <Sense wrath>) NEAR <Person God>

---> looking for 'wrath' or words with that Sense.

Another variant using WITHIN finds some more verses:

(wrath, <Sense wrath>) WITHIN <Person God>

Passage list of results could be merged.

Keep Smiling 4 Jesus :):
(wrath, <Sense wrath>) WITHIN <Person God>

I'd forgotten that we need to be cognizant of WITHIN 0 WORDS because verbs can attract dual attributes as  Lev 10:6 where 'wrath' is within the text "wrath come" attributed to <Person God>.

So this one search will do the job

(wrath, <Sense wrath>) WITHIN 0-9 WORDS <Person God>

It picks up 2 Chron 24:18 because of the 9 words separation is just outside the range of NEAR.

It strangely omits Job 20:28, though whilst NEAR picks up the pronoun for "God"!?
