1. Search דרשׁ using the Bible Word Study guide. Under Grammatical Relationships, with Object ..., it fails to list 1 Chr 28:8 (שִׁמְרוּ וְדִרְשׁוּ כָּל־מִצְוֹת יהוה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם) under either כל or מצוה. This hit, however, is discovered using the syntax search described below.

2. Do a syntax search according to the criteria below. It fails to list the first occurrence of דרשׁ in 1 Chr 28:9 (כִּי כָל־לְבָבוֹת דּוֹרֵשׁ יהוה). Strangely, this hit was discovered using the Bible Word Study above, listed under כל. (I would have assumed that the search data base underlying the Bible Word Study for Hebrew words is the AFPMA.)

What's up? Am I missing something?

You needed to tick Pure Verbal Participle in Predicators for Clause IC2.

Thank so much, Dave. How silly of me to overlook that point. I must keep reminding myself that the Andersen-Forbes grammatical analysis is very specific and particular about its parameters (to a fault?).

Just to ensure that I've covered all the bases, I simply clicked "Predicators"  in Clause IC2 to select them all. Now I'm getting the search results I should expect.

Re: the absence of 1 Chr 28:8 (וְדִרְשׁוּ כָּל־מִצְוֹת) under "Grammatical Relationships, with Object" in the Bible Word Study of דרשׁ, this still puzzles me. While it fails to be listed when I choose "by related word" in the Settings for Grammatical Relationships, it does appear when I choose "verses" in the Settings.

Thanks again, Dave, for your time and interest.

Craig

This puzzles other people as well (Google search on "Grammatical Relationships"):

But it uses a very direct query eg. this gives the same results for "his/him":-
