    The difference in hits is this:
    a. Doc Dave was including both Kethib and Qere in his search. 173 verses

    Hi Morton,

    I tried your searches, using BNM, and got the same count for the separate searches, but for the OR search I got 120 verses, 34 forms, 130 hits -- matching the total of the separate...

    What you suggest certainly works, but I got there by another route for all except for the last one. I did use .!*@v* to get the verses without any verb.
