As part of some sermon preparation, I am trying to find all of the instances of proper names in a given book of the Bible. I don't want one specific name, but every time a proper name appears in that book. Is there a search that would allow me to do that?

Hi Logan and welcome to the forums!

If you are trying to accomplish this in an Old Testament book, then it's quite simple:

  1. Select Morph Search
  2. Select an OT book (this will limit the morphology to Lexham Hebrew Morph)
  3. Select a Bible which has OT Interlinear data based on LHB
  4. Type "@" to bring up the selection dialogue (you can continue typing if you know which character to use; in this case "@np")

If you're wishing to do this in the NT, it's not quite as straight forward since it seems like the Logos Greek Morphology doesn't include proper/common distinction for nouns.

I can think of two other ways to get to this data (both require an internet connection). The first is through the Bible Browser and the second is through a Morph Query Document. Both ways seem to be exposing bugs so I'll investigate further...

Logan, I've created two threads concerning the problems I found with Bible Browser and Morph Query Documents. See this thread for the former and this one for the latter. Note: I posted in the beta forum since I'm running the beta version.

Welcome Big Smile

Search suggestion is: (Morph Proper Noun in Old Testament OR Greek Syntactic Force in New Testament)

([field bible, content] <LogosMorphHeb ~ NP???>) OR ([field bible, content] <LogosMorphAram ~ NP???>) OR {Section <SGNTSyntacticForce = prop. name>}

Keep Smiling Smile
