Is it possible to create a passage list (other than manually) that contains all the cross references for a particular passage? For instance, to focus on Ps 46 and create a list with all the verses that are listed as cross references for the entire psalm?

Yes, run either Important Passages or Cross-References in the Passage guide on Ps 46 then use the Save as Passage List feature at the bottom of the section. For Ps 46 Cross-references (narrower definition) gives 236 passages, Important passages (broader definition) gives 435 passages.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Try using the Cross References Guide (available in the Guides menu) and save the results as a Passage List

Thanks for your response. I was hoping to obtain only the references noted in the text for whatever translation was being used at the moment. Both of the options you note will provide, as you have noted, MANY more than that. But that's OK. Better coverage!

To do that you can use the Power Lookup Tool - open in the right in the screenshot below.

  1. Ensure the entire psalm - Psalm 46 - is specified in the reference box in your Bible
  2. Click the Copy button at the top left of the Tool
  3. Create a new Passage List, click Add and choose the option to add the contents of your clipboard.
