Any suggestions for how to search in the Hebrew text for the compound names of God [such as יְהוָ֣ה׀ יִרְאֶ֑ה YAHWEH Yireh in Gen 22:14 or אֵ֣ל שַׁדַּ֔י El Shaddai in Gen 17:1]?

Hi Bill,

I suggest a Topic Guide or Factbook entry for Names of God, Names of God in the OT, Names of God in the NT. This will get you dictionary entries that list the compound names used for God. You can extend your study from there by running either searches or word study entries on the Hebrew or Greek to get lists of entries in the Bible text.

Hope this helps you get started.

I would suggest the Names of God Interactive - but for some reason it doesn't seem to have the Gen 17:1 reference to El Shaddai!

There seem to be some data issues with it. Also filters like speaker and adressee yield wrong results.

Running Verbum 7 and Logos 8 latest (beta) version on Win 10

"<Lemma = lbs/he/יהוה> <Lemma = lbs/he/ראה>" OR "<Lemma = lbs/he/אֵל:5> <Lemma = lbs/he/שַׁדַּי>"

Factbook includes that one.
