Anyone have an idea how to search numbers in English, Greek or Hebrew? I want to find the largest number used in the Old Testament for instance. This is actually a mathematically search but even a list of all numbers used in the text would do.

Thanks.

I guess just entering .0 you an see all the numbers that come up in the search list....

Hi Bruce,

The numbers with '0' are actually Strong's numbers. The easiest way to identify arabic numerals in the text is to use the full wordlist in the Words Tab. Many versions do not use arabic numerals. There are none in the BGT or the WTT. The ESV has some, though. These numbers appear at the beginning of the full wordlist. You can click on the entries in the Words Tab to conduct a search.

Blessings,
Glenn
