    Default Searching for two words within five verses

    Hi all,
    Is it possible to search for the occurrence of two given words within the range of five verses. Like, how often does x-word and y-word occur within the range of five verses through out the OT.
    Do I need to set up a GSE-search, or can it be done from the command line?
    Thanks!
    Morten

    I think it should be a basic command line search. This is listed as one of the command line examples and I think does what you want.

    .paul barnabas;5 "paul" AND "barnabas" within 5 verses of each other

    Default Search with verse proximity

    To find Paul and Barnabas within five verses of each other:

    .paul barnabas;5

    That and other "Command Line Examples" can be found under the search bar's TOOL menu.

    Thanks to both of you! I actually checked the command line examples - but not well enough, it seems!

    I've been known to ask an "obvious" question on these forums in the past. BibleWorks is a complex and powerful program--and these forums are a font of ready help.
