Greetings! I have asked this before, but I never got a satisfying answer, so why not try again (maybe in the interrum someone has come up with a clever workaround)?
I have BW 7.0. I need to compile a concordance that will list the words in a version (say BNM) and all -- repeat ALL -- the specific verses where this word appears (maybe too frequent words such as kai could be excluded for the time being, or done separately). A simple task, indeed, though it would undoubtedly take some time to compile.
Joe Fleener way back then gave this suggestion:
Tools - Report Generator
Version = BNM
Range = Mat-Rev
Lexicons = all unchecked
Versions = blank
Analyze = BNT
Report Options = only "Include Frequency Lists" (Grk) and "Sort Frquency List by Frequency"
Please look at this sample of the results:
φανός occurs 1 time in mat-rev and 1 time in BNT.
Φανουήλ occurs 1 time in mat-rev and 1 time in BNT.
φαντάζω occurs 1 time in mat-rev and 1 time in BNT.
φαντασία occurs 1 time in mat-rev and 1 time in BNT.
Obviously, this is not what I am looking for, and it is surprising that apparently this basic feature is not available in BW 7.0 (most text analysis programs can compile concordances without batting an eye, so to speak), unless there is, as I said, a clever workaround.
What I need is something that will look like this:
βίβλος : Gen. 2:4; 5:1; Jos. 1:8; Tob. 1:1; Tbs. 1:1; Job 37:20; Sir. 24:23; Bar. 4:1; Matt. 1:1
Or even better yet, the Greek word, plus the references and a specific Bible version, say the ESV (or the Greek AND the ESV), in a column format.
If this feature is not available (other than going through the lexicon word by word), is there any hope it will be included in BW 8, whenever that rolls out?
