I would like to create a basic lexicon for multiple NT passages using Gingrich, but I can't seem to make one that doesn't repeat entries and, therefore, require a significant amount of formatting.

Here are the passages: tit 2:11 - tit 2:14; 1ti 3:1 - 1ti 3:13; 1ti 2:8 - 1ti 2:15; heb 1:1 - heb 1:4; heb 9:23 - heb 9:28; heb 6:4 - heb 6:12; jam 1:22 - jam 1:27; jam 2:1; jam 2:14 - jam 2:17; jam 2:20 - jam 2:26; 1pe 1:3 - 1pe 1:12; jud 1:24 - jud 1:25; rev 1:4 - rev 1:8; rev 2:1 - rev 2:7; rev 20:1 - rev 20:6; rev 22:14 - rev 22:17

1. The Word List Manager seems the easiest way to go about it, but the Verse Range Limits field won't accept all of the characters in the list above. It will accept the list through "rev 1:8," so I enter that, select BNM, keep Greek accents and sort the result alphabetically.

2. Then I make a secondary list using the remainder of my passage list: rev 2:1 - rev 2:7; rev 20:1 - rev 20:6; rev 22:14 - rev 22:17.

From there, I need to eliminate words from one list that are common to both lists, and merge the two lists. Then I need to make a lexicon from the merged list and send it to the editor. What are the steps I would take to accomplish this (assuming that there are some)? Or is there a better way? (I tried the report generator, but this seemed to be better; that is, it didn't hang the ancient computer as often). Thanks for any help!
