I am trying to find all of the uses of God's personal name (YHWH)(Hebrew Strongs H3068) when it is used in a quote by someone.

For example, in Gen 4:1 Eve says of her newborn son Cain "I have acquired a man from YHWH".

In other words, I would like to find all of the times that someone speaks the personal name of God.

Can anyone help with this?  Can clause search do this somehow?

GeoPappas:

I can't think of a way of doing this in Logos 5.

Logos 6 comes close - but even there I can't work out how to go the last step

The "WITHIN {Speaker...} construct helps as below

But I don't think you can have wildcarded people within <Person xxx> to give you what you are looking for.

Others may have better ideas.

Thanks for the response and taking the time to try and figure it out.

Anybody else have any suggestions?

You can use Andersen Forbes genre of "Other human to human Speech" (get the format from the right click menu).

   <Lemma = af/he/יהוה> WITHIN <AndersenForbesGenre = oth>      (Logos 6); or

   <Lemma = af/he/יהוה> WITHIN 0 WORD <AndersenForbesGenre = oth>   (Logos 5/6)

"Awesome Sauce!" (Sorry, I love that term).

I just tried your solution and it looks like it works great.

Blessings.

That's one type of speech. Collectively, they are best done through Syntax Search

Just tick the boxes.

Dave:

Once again, thanks for taking the time to go the "extra yard".

With your first suggestion, I had noticed that there were some verses that seemed to be missing, but with this new suggestion I'm sure that it will capture it all (as long as Logos has tagged everything correctly).

Blessings.
