Is there any way to make a Visual Filter to change an English Bible's "the Lord" to YHWH when it is translated from that in the Hebrew? I was able to make a filter for the Hebrew lemma and make "Lord" white and label the text "YHWH", the problem is that the article "the" still appears before "YHWH". So instead of getting "Thus says YHWH..." I get "Thus says the YHWH..." .

Does anyone know a solution for this? Would you be able to post the Visual Filter sentence that I would need?

Thank you!

I would think you could use the BEFORE 1 WORD operator to find the English "the" immediately before the YHWH lemma.

You then make "the" white, although you may be left with a gap.

Hey Jonathan, thanks for the tip. It seems like that should work, however I just tried it (the BEFORE 1 WORD @lemma:יהוה ) and it actually puts a YHWH in front of both "the" and "Lord," so I end up with: "       YHWH       YHWH .......". Is this a glitch?

Anyone have any other ideas how one would do this?

Ok, figured it out! I had to make 2 separate visual filters. Here's the filter code and result:                                                                                                   

- For some reason this is the largest it will show. Sorry.

the BEFORE 1 WORD lemma:יהוה

Wiki has => http://wiki.logos.com/Extended_Tips_for_Highlighting_and_Visual_Filters

Members or Followers of Faithlife group Logos Visual Filters can copy documents => https://faithlife.com/logos-visual-filters/documents that includes "Hebrew Morphology - Names" Highlighting Palette and "Logos Hebrew Morphology - Names" Visual Filter.

Observation: @ is not needed before lemma

the BEFORE 1 WORD lemma:יהוה 

The visual filter

lemma:יהוה ANDEQUALS Lord

has one result in the Lexham English Bible.

Wow, I didn't know you could do that!

Can I also change God to Elohim and El.

And does it do it to all the Bibles in my library all at once or do I have to do it one Bible at a time?

Yes; the "Logos Hebrew Morphology - Names" visual filter inserts Hebrew for the Tetragammaton, Elohim, and El.

All Bibles that have Logos Hebrew Morphology.  Personally use "Logos Hebrew Morphology - Names" visual filter in English Bibles: AV1873 (Cambrige Paragraph), ESV, KJV 1900, LEB, NASB95, NIV2011, NKJV, and NRSV.  Spanish RVR60 has OT interlinear.  In Hebrew Bibles, prefer to turn off visual filter since do not need to insert Hebrew.
