While searching 2 Corinthians in the KJV and The Interlinear Literal Translation of the Greek NT (Newberry),
they produced different results for <Lemma = lbs/el/δεύτερος> "second" (KJV 2X, Newberry 3X)
The issue is that the Newberry Interlinear includes the un-inspired comment at the end of the book.
I do not think a human comment should be included with a search of the Word of God.

I agree this looks very strange.

However, it looks as though at least some versions of the Textus Receptus 1550 (on which the Newberry Translation was based) does reference this last comment. I wonder if that had any impact on the decisions taken when tagging. It will be interesting to see if someone from Faithlife comments on this

Did you double-check that the search was on "all Bible text"?

Yes - this is what the search shows

It seems that some people consider the subscript part of verse 13, like the headings on some of the psalms. In that case, it would not be surprising for it to be included.

13:13 Subscription

(a) The subscription in 𝔓46 א* A B* 33 is πρὸς Κορινθίους β̄. Other subscriptions include: (b) πρὸς Κορινθίους β̄ ἐγράφη ἀπὸ Φιλίππων Bc P; (c) τέλος τῆς πρὸς Κορινθίους β̄ ἐπιστολῆς· ἐγράφη ἀπὸ Φιλίππων 642; (d) πρὸς Κορινθίους δευτέρα ἐγράφη ἀπὸ Φιλίππων διὰ Τίτου καὶ Λουκᾶ L al; (e) πρὸς Κορινθίους β̄ ἐγράφη ἀπὸ Φιλίππων τῆς Μακεδονίας διὰ Τίτου καὶ Λουκᾶ K al, followed by the Textus Receptus (with δευτέρα for β̄); (f) as (e) but concluding … διὰ Τίτου, Βαρναβᾶ, καὶ Λουκᾶ 201 205 209 328 337; (g) ἐγράφη ἀπὸ Φιλίππων τῆς Μακεδονίας διὰ Τίτου καὶ Λουκᾶ πρὸς Κορινθίους β̄ ἐπιστολή Euthaliusmss.

In short, this shows why I was taught to do text critical work first to establish the text when doing exegesis. The rest of your analysis can be significantly changed depending on what exactly is the text you use.
