It would be highly appreciated if I could get a help of how to  search what God pleases and not in the entire Bible. 

Blessings in Christ.

Tes,

I do not understand what you are asking for. What do you mean by "what God pleases"? If not "the entire bible" what search parameters are you looking for?

Fred,

I parsed this a bit differently and understand Tes to mean what is said/revealed in Scripture 

- to be

  • a) "pleasing to God" 
  • b) "not pleasing to God" 

- in the entire bible.

However I think this is a so broad concept that it's difficult to formulate a search that encompasses all of it

What I mean is as in "1 Kings 3:10" the Lord was pleased with what Solomon asked. I would like to have a possibility of searching where the Lord is delighted or pleased with some one°s deed or anything which refers to that ,which is confirmed by the Lord or as a result of that his response to it or by failing to do it that the Lord was not pleased. I am not asking generally, but specific what pleases Him, or not. I want to limited search with pleasing or not. 

Blessings in Christ.

Tes, I went to 1 Kings 3:10 in the ESV and highlighted "pleased the Lord" and right clicked it. Then did an everything search but you can limit the search to other things like all resources, or all open resources. Play around with the right click menu when you grab the search term from the bible.

Tes, you could try to select the word in your English bible, click on Tool, and select lemma to do your word study (this will show you where else in the bible that word appears), use topic guide to search for your topic, or use passage guide to study this verse Hebrews 11:6.  These may get you more ideas to study further.

Tes,

You could use the <Sense> search combined with <Person God>. The problem will arise in knowing all the different senses that have been assigned to a particular occurrence.

Thank you Matt for your contribution to help me. I am asking more complicated than this.

Thank you Alex for your help. I am aware of such searching. I need  more technical searching.

Thank you Fredc, it is this kind of search I was looking for. Well done! I couldn't find it even on the Wiki. It would be appreciated if you could give me more tips.

Blessings in Christ.
