I am doing a particular search that should bring back at least 1 Peter 3:19-20, but I am getting no results. Perhaps i am doing something wrong.  See below

Please tell me where i am going wrong or is this a 7.8 new search engine issue.

I don't do these kinds of searches, but am willing to see what I come up with. Can you paste the search term into a new post?

I think the issue may be that you are doing a "bible" search, rather than a "morph" one.

I tried is as a morph search and nothing came back.

I may quickly be showing my ignorance. Stick out tongue

Another thought: What happens if you change to the ESV? The NASB is going through some issues/changes, so it may be a problem with that translation.

Did you mean βάπτισμα?

Did that solve the problem?

Ugh. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable than me can take a look soon.

I appreciate the help. I am going to try rebuilding the index and see if that helps.

The first search term is found in 1 Peter 3:21 while the second is in 1 Peter 3:20 - and Bible / Morph searches don't span verse boundaries

Bible search works fine for this.

The quick solution would be to do a Basic Search:

<Lemma = lbs/el/βάπτισμα> WITHIN 100 WORDS <Lemma = lbs/el/διασῴζω>

I figured that out, but it took me a bit to get there. Smile

The key, I think, is the multiple verse thing

my friends, it seems several search operators are not working with "bible search" that previously worked prior to this update.  Examples below.  Please let me know if you are getting results. I am still not getting any.

I am also having issue with the morph search with the same terms.

Everyone:

I realize my continuous mistake is that i have been looking for search results in morph searches and bible searches not realizing those searches only return results with the "SAME VERSE".  If i want hits that span verses, i need to do a syntax search.

Or a Basic Search would do it as Pieter pointed out above

As would a Morph Query if you set the "search span" for two verses
