Question for anyone who can help....

I'm studying Joshua 7, and came across this verse: "...when I saw among the spoil a beautiful cloak from Shinar, and 200 shekels of silver, and a bar of gold weighing 50 shekels, then I coveted them and took them" (7:21). A commentary noted that these same three Hebrew words (saw, coveted, took) appear in Genesis 3:6. 

I'm trying to see if these are the only two verses where all three Hebrew words appear together, but can't figure out how to execute that search. Genesis 3:6 (in ESV) has a different translaton of the Hebrew word translated as "coveted" in Joshua, which is why I'm insistent on searching for the Hebrew.

Can anyone help?

Welcome to the forums. A Bible search with the two Hebrew words with a space between them (or the word AND) should work. Or do you mean you want the lemma form? To enter Hebrew if you aren't familiar with the Hebrew keyboard -- just type h: followed by the transliterated Hebrew. select the word or lemma from the drop down list.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Right click each word in Josh 7:21, select the Lemma on the left and click the Search option of Copy reference on the right. You should end up with <Lemma ~ lbs/he/ראה>   <Lemma ~ lbs/he/חמד>   <Lemma ~ lbs/he/לקח>   after pasting into a Bible Search box. Results confirm Gen 3:6 as the only other passage.
