The Bible Word Study is now available on app.logos.com. It is currently only supporting original language words.

The Lemma section is currently the only available section, with more to come soon.

The Word by Word section will link to the Bible Word Study.

The bible word study can be navigated using greek and hebrew lemmas. The autocompleter supports using the "g:" (e.g g:logos -> λόγος) syntax for searching via greek transliterations, and "h:" syntax for searching via hebrew transliterations.

The drop down populates so slowly that it appears to just be blank at first. I tried an english transliteration (e.g. g:kardia) and thought it failed, until about 10 seconds later it populated the box.

Once I slow down and let it work though, it seems to work as advertised.  This is a great start on the BWS, a report in particular I was looking for.

Now linked from the Exegetical guide!  Another win.  Thanks for this, the ability to work from my chromebook is growing closer.

Yes

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

The Bible Word Study has been updated to include the translation section. Updates to this section (and all other guide sections, as well as new sections) will be added as we develop them.

I recently shipped a change so that now if you type in for example "g:kardia" and hit enter before the autocomplete suggestions show up, behind the scenes it will simply take what would've been the first item in the list. That way if you know what you want you won't have to wait if the autocomplete suggestions seem to be taking a while.

Try it out!

Great Seth.  The only thing I might like to add to the process is some type of indicator to show that the program is, in fact, processing in the background.  Many times I typed fast and hit enter on purpose just to test it out - there is no indicator that anything at all is happening until ... there it is!

Perhaps this isn't feasible, and I'm fine if it's not considered necessary - but if it is trivial - go ahead and throw a progress indicator of some sort in there.

Just to let you know that I got a 404 error at https://app.logos.com/. After I started using it the error went away.

I agree. A 'working…' indicator is also needed when you click 'More' in the lexicons. I thought it had broken, because it's taking 10s to load the extra lexicons.

Good suggestion. I'll take a look and see what it takes to add this.

Updated Bible Word Study's translation section.

Clicking on a slice of the ring graph, will now bring up the associated references. You can also click on the item in the legend to the right to bring up the references. Clicking on the center will bring up all occurrences.

We will try to make the more link respond more quickly.

An update has been pushed so that for now it will indicate "Loading..." when clicked upon.

We recently shipped an update that should make the more link respond quicker, The same update also makes the word by word sections, and lemma sections load slightly quicker in general as well.

Yes, that's better. I get the "Loading" indicator, and all my lexicons are ready in about 3s now. In fact the whole guide feels pretty snappy.

The Bible Word Study's translation section has been updated to include a Settings button that allows you to change what Bible version is displayed for a given lemma.
