in Bible Word Study under Phrases, when I click on the gk phrase the search comes up with 0 hits when searching the ESV.  I thought that search was supposed to work with reverse interlinear Bibles as well as original language Bibles.  Is that not right?

This is the BWS-Phrases.  I click on gk:city of david.

Which give me this search/result.  Below is full search string.

Does that help?

Was reading through the Bible Phrases documentation and they used the example of BWS for city which lead to the phrase city of david.  That's how all this came about.

The lemma searches only work in original language Bibles due to Greek word order and proximity.

When you search "BEFORE 1 WORD" in a reverse interlinear, the proximity is evaluated by the English words that the Greek words are aligned with, not according to the original Greek word order. Because Greek doesn't use the preposition "of", all Greek proximity searches in English will be off by one word due to the inserted "of".
