Is there any way to search for every occurrence of a chapter and verse in the entire Bible?  In this case, I am looking for 3:16.   I would like to do others in the future but it would be nice if I could just run a search for it.

Hi Rick!         *smile*          Peace and Every Blessing!     

                I can't imagine why you would want to search for every occurrence of chapter and verse - referencing 3:16 - in the entire Bible!

However, I just searched for "3:16" in Google to see what I would get.  I'm sort of finished with my productive labours for this day; so I was curious.  It was "interesting" to say the least!

              You could search for Genesis 3:16 - and also Exodus 3:16 ...          and so on ....              including various kinds of searchings ........  Please let us know if you find an easy way to do it with Logos.           It's beyond me!                                            *smile*

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........

There's a book called 3:16 Bible Texts Illuminated by Donald E. Knuth, the well-known computer scientist who is also a Christian and a calligrapher. I'm guessing that Dr. Knuth looked up each of the 3:16 verses manually.

Comment from an Amazon.com reviewer named B. Marold: "For each verse, there are three pages of text plus one full page of art giving the calligrapher's interpretation of the text. ”

Am curious to know why, apart from some project like this, the same chapter/verse in each book is of interest to you. There's nothing special or inspired about those verse divisions, and they were applied long after the original text was written. So it would just be a random set of verses that happened to be at a given location in each book of the Bible.

I saw that book but I think he is using the NRSV.  I wanted to do something with this in church and if it is not in the KJV, I dare not bring it through the doors.  I was hoping that with the thousands I have invested in two Bible software programs that one of them could do this for me.  I'll just have to manually type in all of the first three letters of all the book names and do a paste for the 3:16 part and separate the lot with commas.  I was hoping for a wildcard solution somehow... some programmers back door trick to fool the software and allow me to use a wildcard for a book name.  It doesn't sound like their is one.  I'll keep watching just in case somebody comes up with that eloquent syntax that will get the job done.

HI Rick,

It can be done with a little thinking outside the box.  What I did was search for a list of books in the bible on google.

Found one and dropped it into excel.  Using Text to Columns feature I tided up the text removing extra information like a number next to each book of the bible.  I then used a formula to append 3:16 to each bible book name so in excel my first row of cells looked something like:

            A                               B   (forumula)          B(displayed result)

1        Genesis            =A1&" 3:16"                    Genesis 3:16

 

 

I then copied column C to a text file.  I did not worry about cleaning up the list for combinations that did not work - I let Logos do that for me.

I pasted the list form the text file into a passage list and in Logos and now have a passage list called "The 3:16 verses".

I've exported to a text file the clean list of 3:16 verses from passage list and attached below to save you doing the preparation work.  This should get you what you want and in passage list you can easily change the version being used.

Use a passage list. I googled a list of books of the bible. After a few clicks I found a nicely formatted list. I then used a regex in my editor to replace the line end with " 3:16,". That gave me this:

Gen 3:16, Exod 3:16, Lev 3:16, Num 3:16, Deut 3:16, Josh 3:16, Judg 3:16, Ruth 3:16, 1 Sam 3:16, 2 Sam 3:16, 1 Kings 3:16, 2 Kings 3:16, 1 Chron 3:16, 2 Chron 3:16, Ezra 3:16, Neh 3:16, Esth 3:16, Job 3:16, Ps 3:16, Prov 3:16, Eccles 3:16, Song 3:16, Isa 3:16, Jer 3:16, Lam 3:16, Ezek 3:16, Dan 3:16, Hos 3:16, Joel 3:16, Amos 3:16, Obad 3:16, Jon 3:16, Mic 3:16, Nah 3:16, Hab 3:16, Zeph 3:16, Hag 3:16, Zech 3:16, Mal 3:16, Matt 3:16, Mark 3:16, Luke 3:16, John 3:16, Acts 3:16, Rom 3:16, 1 Cor 3:16, 2 Cor 3:16, Gal 3:16, Eph 3:16, Phil 3:16, Col 3:16, 1 Thess 3:16, 2 Thess 3:16, 1 Tim 3:16, 2 Tim 3:16, Tit 3:16, Philem 3:16, Heb 3:16, Jas 3:16, 1 Pet 3:16, 2 Pet 3:16, 1 John 3:16, 2 John 3:16, 3 John 3:16, Jude 3:16, Rev 3:16

You can copy the text, create a passage list, and click Add ...from clipboard. Then select whichever bible version you like.

EDIT: Oops, Andrew beat me by a minute.

Awesome!  Thanks!  I don't have Excel but I do have Libre Office.  I never use spreadsheets for anything so I am not up on the latest commands but even a dummy like me can use this list.  Thank you.  Randy... a few swift clicks and regex... what's a regex?  I know what a text editor is but not sure what a regex is.  I can do a few command line things in linux and os X but that one is a new term.  How did you get it to add 3:16 at the end of each one? 

Also, in trying to use this list in a text file.  I copied it all and have no clue where to paste it.  I've tried over a half dozen times to put it in the search box and it refuses to go there.  Where do I put the list in Logos so that it comes up?  Head. Desk.  Computers are wonderful when you can actually get them to work.  :-)  Ooops... Logos just crashed.  I don't think I have enough memory on this poor thing ... only 12 gigs of ram in here with a quad core i5.  I cringe every time I add books.  It eats all of the 5 gigs of ram I have free and then it sits and spins for several minutes struggling to free enough up to continue.  I do believe I might have pasted it in the wrong place and made it very very angry... @@

Nice approach Randy.  Cool  I was thinking someone else might have responded while I was compiling my answer.

Hi Rick,  Instructions based on L5 but L4 should be similar.

From Documents Menu (File in L4) choose passage list.

With new passage list open choose Add menu and then clipboard to past in the list of verses.

 

For more instructions on Passage lists see Logos Wiki: http://wiki.logos.com/Passage_List  (Screen shots are for Logos 4 but if you have Logos 5 will be very similar just use Documents Menu instead of File Menu.

I have 5.  Thank you.  They seem to have done to this what MS did when they butchered Word in 2007.  That awful ribbon thing.  I haven't used it since.  In that list, I am missing a few things.  I'll add them.  Not sure but I know that Psalms is not there and there are some others I can't put my finger on.  I am not a programmer so I don't know what mysterious commands were applied to get the list.  At least I know where to put it when I can figure out just what isn't here....  Thanks, everyone.   I knew I was probably trying to pin the tail on the wrong end of the donkey again like usual.  Not a search, a passage list.  I have two programs... Logos and Accordance and several other lesser ones.  Trying to figure out half of what they all do is a huge task.  :-)  I just realized there is a second list in the second post... duh... hey those appear to be all there... copy, paste... here we go.  Thanks again!

It's a "regular expression" - used for search and replace in most text editors and word processors, it can contain wildcards for matching any character, and often special symbols for matching beginning/end of line, beginning/end of word, etc.

Don't forget Hezekiah 3:16.  It won't show up in any search, but is handy to cite for any assertion you wish to make with "scriptural" authority.  Big Smile

I did that once years ago teaching a Sunday school lesson.  Now, everybody turn in their Bibles to  Second Hezekiah..... I heard a LOT of flipping and quite a few people sitting there with big grins.......  This brought me to the topic at hand.  Learning your Bible.  First thing we need to do is to know what books there are in it and where they are located...   @@  You can stop looking now.  There is no book called Hezekiah or second Hezekiah anywhere in the Bible.  :-)

If at first you don't succeed, swallow all evidence that you tried.

If at first you do succeed, try not to look too astonished.
