Hello everyone,

Does anyone know how to view a specific verse in all the available translations and versions of the bible? I remember of having such a feature in the old version of logos where it prepares a list of the verse from all the bible in my library .. but can't find it now ..

The text comparison doesn't do the job I want, because I have to select specific versions/translations  ..


I appreciate your help guys

Thanks in advanced

Actually, the Text Comparison tool will do what you are looking for.  As you can see from my screen shot you can ask the tool to display your reference in 'All of library' or in any custom collection.  You can see I've created a collection for all my English Bibles (with a typo Stick out tongue) which is available to me here.  

Just note that running a comparison for a lot of resources at once can take a long time to populate, especially if you are running it for a large passage.

Create a collection with all your bibles. to do so create a collection and use the rule string type:bible

Open the text comparison tool, put your course in the second box. a drop down box should show up. scroll down to the collection you just made and it will show it in all your Bibles. You can also create a collection for all  your english bibles (type:Bible AND lang:english) and all your Greek Bibles (type:bible AND lang:greek).

Hope this helps!
