While searching for a word in the Search tool and then searching for the same word in Bible Word Study, i noticed that the count was different between the 2 tools (Search found 124 and BWS found 122).

After digging to find out the difference, i found that two of the hits in the Search tool were words added by the translators for clarity which did not occur in the Original Language, thus why BWS didn't find those 2 occurrences.

A. Notice the difference between the counts.

B. After investigating, i found that Luke 22:4 and Acts 14:13 were the difference. And when checking it out in the Reverse-Interlinear i see that these are words which were added for clarity in the translation and did not appear in the Original Language.

So now after learning what to look for when there is a difference between counts, i thought that i would share this with the forum in hopes of helping others not have to dig so much in understanding this difference.
