What is it?

The Psalms Explorer dataset, not to be confused with the interactive, is a dataset containing information about a Psalm's genre, attribution, structure, and more.

How does it work?

The Psalms Explorer dataset makes the the Psalms Explorer not just sortable, but searchable. Now you can isolate not just every lament psalm written by David, but every Davidic lament psalm containing the word "sin." Search specific words, phrases, cultural concepts, and more within any combination of genres, attributions, structure, and other tags.

Where can I learn more?

That's really good. Is there any documentation (or just a listing) of the search fields anywhere, please?

The Psalms Explorer Interaction should function in place of the documentation. The search syntax is the same for labels. Use

{Label Psalm WHERE . . . } in conjunction with the tags that are provided in the Psalms Explorer. So,

  • Genre =
    • "Lament"
    • "Praise"
    • "Hymn"
    • "Royal"
    • "Wisdom"
    • "Thanksgiving"
    • "Trust"
  • Attribution = 
    • "David"
    • "Anonymous"
    • "Asaph"
    • "David (LXX)"
    • "Korahites"
    • "Anonymous (LXX)"
    • "Haggai (LXX)"
    • "Zechariah (LXX)"
    • "Solomon"
    • "Ethan the Ezrahite"
    • "Heman the Ezrahit"
    • "Moses"
  • Structure = 
    • "Strophe"
    • "Chiasm"
    • "Acrostic"

etc.

Think those should be "Genres" ehh ;-)

I love this new feature and was playing around with it a bit today when it downloaded.

with the tags that are provided in the Psalms Explorer

I can't seem to get any results with the "Theme" or "Tag" filters. Are these fields included in the data?

Bruce Dunning:

I love this new feature...This is another great interactive.

Just to prevent confusion with regard to Jacob's explanation (see below), this is the new capability to search on the info that is contained in the interactive, as well as see this tagging in the information panel while reading the Psalms.

Joe, this is not available for Proverbs, but I'll pass on your desire for it to be to the right people.

Concerning searching for themes, you will need to search for the label "preaching theme." Its 6:45AM in Bellingham and I'm walking my dogs, but when I get to my computer, I'll post with the search syntax ;)

Thanks for catching that! I've corrected it in the original post.

Thanks Jacob and I'm guessing there's a special send text to search for the tags as well this is great thank you for your work on this also and I definitely agree that this capability with be nice for the Proverbs interactive as well and while we're on the subject I think many of these interactives could become visible through the information panel as well as having corresponding datasets to search

The syntax for this is:

{Section <PreachingTheme xxx>}

Fill xxx in with the themes listed in the Psalms Explorer. An example might be:

{Section <PreachingTheme God: Power>} AND strength WITHIN {Label Psalm}

This looks for every Psalm that has the theme Power occurs with the English word "strength" within the Psalm.

Regarding "Tag," I didn't have a problem searching for them. I used the syntax:

{Label Psalm WHERE Tag = "Superscription"}

I get limited results that don't correspond to the interactive.  In the interactive when I filter by the tag "Messianic" it shows 15 Psalms. 

But when I search for them as you described, {Label Psalm WHERE Tag = "Messianic"} I only show 2 Psalms (though it shows a result for each verse of the Psalm as expected, (41 verses total))

Aren't I correct that this search, if working properly, should show all of the verses of the 15 Psalms that the interactive lists as tag= Messianic ?

Two more things, 1 being an observation/bug and the other a suggestion if not an oversight. 

1. The Psalms explorer interactive has the capability in the resource panel menu to have it on a link set. When I attempt this, nothing happens...

2. When I see the data tagging on the information tool it seems the only field missing is the "theme". Is that intentional or a bug/oversight? I think it would be useful to see, at least as much as all the other fields are useful.

This is a known issue - the interactive doesn't currently support this capability and the option shouldn't appear in the panel - see https://community.logos.com/forums/p/101769/704075.aspx#704075 for a comment from Eli on this

Agreed
