Hi,

The following search is turning up zero hits, which is not correct. Open Bibles include ESV, NASB95, NIV, NRSV.

"Search All Bible Text in John in All Open Bibles for: son within 13 words father".

I can't figure out why the search fails.

Hi Clark,

Your Proximity Operator is not capitalized, you need to captialize WITHIN in the find box of Search

 

For more info on proximity operators see this wiki article Proximity Operators

EDIT: i got the same results as you when i did not capitalize WITHIN

Thanks Steve, that was the trick. By the way, I had looked at the Proximity Operators article, but it doesn't say that capitalization is required. I thought the examples were capitalized for clarity.

The two main wiki pages on Searching do state this in earlier sections, when first talking about operators.
