When I do a word study with the same resource (ESV), I get very different results on my desktop Logos and the Logos app on iPhone.  With the desktop app, I get the English word in the center and the various possible Hebrew translations of the word as the segments of the translation wheel, while in the iPhone wheel I get the exact opposite (Hebrew word in the center and all different ways of translation into English as the segments of the wheel).

For example, here's what I get for a word from Job 36:20 on my desktop Logos:

And here're the results of the same word study on the iPhone:

 

Anyone knows what's going on?  I tried varying the priorities of the preferred bibles but am getting the same results (I had the Hebrew bible on top, and now the ESV on top).  If I wanted to do a word study on the desktop app the iPhone way, i.e. to find out all translations for a given Hebrew word in the ESV, is there a way to do this?

Thanks in advance for all tips and help!  Smile

You are looking at different BWS sections here. The Hebrew Words section (which you're looking at on your desktop) shows all the Hebrew words that are translated as long. The Translation section (which you're looking at on your iPhone) shows the reverse.

It appears that on the Desktop you are running the word study on an English word instead of the Hebrew word. Make certain you launch the word study from the lemma in the context menu

Thanks, Kevin.  You beat me to it. I was just going back to edit my post to explain how you'd end up seeing those two different sections.

Wow, it works!  Thanks a lot Kevin and Rosie!

Now I can give Mike some homework.  Wink
