    Search the Septuagint in e-Sword

    Phill, two quick things. 1) According to my LXX+ (admittedly not the LXX+WH+ that you mention), "baptizo" does actually occur, in 2 Ki. 5:14, and in Is. 21:4. 2) As I said before, the LXX+ I use is not searchable. Apparently the LXX+WH+ you mention is searchable? Going to biblesupport.com, the closest name I see to LXX+WH+ is LXX+WH+-97. Is that the module you're referring to? I'm willing to install it & compare it to what I have now. (For Westcott-Hort, I currently use IWH+P.) Blessings, Jeff

    Search the Septuagint in e-Sword

    Let me share the following, Phil, and you can tell me if what I'm currently doing achieves the same end as what you described. I perform a search, get my results, click on a resultant verse within the search box results, which then puts that verse (in its context) in the main Bible window, where I can see it in any version I like, or even see that verse in the Compare or Parallel windows. (If I want to make sure that I eventually return to my original, pre-search verse, I just create a bookmark in e-Sword.)

    Thanks for the quick response & a way of searching the LXX. The method you detailed allows one to search for instances of a word when you already know a place in the LXX where it occurs. In my case, I didn't even have that! I was searching for "baptizo" but there seems to be no way to just search for G907 in the LXX. If one has a book or e-source that gives at least one reference, then your method works, so I'm glad you shared it with me. I did find a such a reference, and then followed your advice.

    Phil, thanks for having created a useful resource. I see the latest interaction with you here was 3 yrs. ago. Using a more current version of e-Sword (I have 10.4.0), the LXX+ is no longer searchable. : ( When one opens the search box & chooses the LXX+, the search box area gets grayed out, i.e., one can't even enter text! If you know of a way around this, I'd love to hear it.
