Can someone help with the reason for the 9 repetitions of Jas 5:17 in this Search?

If you do morph searches in English versions, you'll run into trouble.

In this case, the phrase he prayed earnestly doesn't directly translate the Greek text, it's more idiomatic. You can see this by turning on the reverse interlinear pane, and noting that the phrase is in italics, and written across the boxes of two Greek words. The analysis table wants to show you all the detail, but can only show you the data from one reverse-interlinear 'column' at a time. But because you have three English words in two columns, it's not sure what to do about that, and just spits out multiple rows with different combinations of data.

The solution is to use a Greek text instead of an English one. The closest Greek text to the one underlying the KJV is the Byzantine.

Thanx for your help... now and at other times as well. If I miss thanking anyone at any time, it is certainly not because someones time and effort is not much appreciated!
