    Question a help with graphical search engine

    I will appreciate a help with graphical search engine, which I am trying hard to learn, with some examples posted in the tutorials and in the forums. Now I need to find all the Hebrew words, which LXX translates with a particular, single greek word. For example, the verb κρίνω is the LXX translation of mainly sapat, and some other Hebrew words (din, rib etc.) . How to find instances of these different Hebrew words using a graphical search engine?

    This is not using the graphical search engine, but here's a quick way:
    1. Resource menu
    2. Parallel Hebrew - LXX (i.e., Tov-Polak module)
    3. Find LXX/Hebrew equivalents (3rd icon)
    4. Enter κρίνω in box for Greek lemma
    5. Search finds several terms besides those you mention and gives the occurrences in context.

    Thank you very much!!! I was not aware of that method. It does not matter to me if I use GSE or not, I just needed a way out. This seems to be good... though at the first impression I get a feeling that the search results are not accurate. I need to familiarize with the tool a bit.

    Anyway, thank you very much for your help.

    Yes, the results are only as accurate and thorough as the alignment that Tov and Polak embedded in the database.
