How do I search for all pericopes that use two or more strong's numbers?

There may be a shorter way to express this but the following will work:

GreekStrongs in GXXX AND GreekStrongs in GXXXX
where XXXX is the Greek Strong's number. Similar for Hebrew.
This works only for verses. There is no way to control searching to a pericope.

The basic unit for Bible searches is verses, not pericopes, so i can't think of a way to do this. You can search for two lemmas NEAR each other (roughly 8-10 words), but that's a poor approximation for pericope boundaries.Here's an example using the Greek terms for "teach" and "say":

<Lemma = lbs/el/λέγω> NEAR <Lemma = lbs/el/διδάσκω>

I built this with two different searches, both initiated by right-clicking on the appropriate word in a reverse-interlinear display, selecting Lemma, and then Search this resource. That builds the lemma search query: once you have them both, you just copy-and-paste, then put NEAR in between.

If the number of hits for the first lemma (or Strong's number if you must) is relatively small, then of course you can walk through the hits one by one and look for instances of the second lemma (using a visual filter for the second lemma would make that easier).

And of course Mark is right (i took too long composing my post!): AND lets the proximity be the entire verse, so this search

<Lemma = lbs/el/λέγω> AND <Lemma = lbs/el/διδάσκω>

returns more hits, and is therefore better in general.

As Jeff is using Libronix the syntax would be

Lemma:λέγω AND Lemma:διδάσκω
