Are there any resources I can use to enter two Strong’s numbers to find places that they both occur in the same verse or chapter? The purpose is to narrow down relevant places to focus my study, where one or both terms have a large number of occurrences.

    Are you after a free tool and not just Accordance or Logos? – curiousdannii May 19 at 15:28
  • All options entertained at present. If you explain either I would be much obliged – Roby Vicary May 19 at 15:32

    I use Young's Analytical Concordance (based on the KJV, of course) which lists words according to their occurrence in the original Greek and thus does not confuse translation issues. Robert Young thus sorts out lists of words according to the original occurrence. – Nigel J May 20 at 11:27

    There's also something called purebiblesearch. – David May 22 at 9:44

One free option is ISA2 or ISA3 beta. I still use ISA2 for the Concordant View feature (pictured at end) that is not available on the pre-ISA3 version. (Note: Except for Concordant View examples at the end, the pics are from ISA3. The search feature is the same in both programs.

Download Interlinear Scripture Analyzer 3 basic What's new?

The new ISA3 Basic is a 'light' version of the ISA3 Pro which will be published at a later date. In short compared with the old ISA2, ISA3 Basic has much more interlinears also in different languages but the application itself is more 'basic' and simplified than the old ISA2. For people who want to use the Textus Receptus they can still use the old ISA2 (download ISA2) or buy the still being developed ISA3 Pro version at a later time which has everything. See ISA3 Basic vs Pro comparison table.

Can also search "in order" only. "No order" includes separated and side-by-side terms.

Yes, there is a free tool that you can use on www.blueletterbible.org.

On the home page, click on “Search” on the navigation bar.

enter image description here

On the search page, simply enter the Strong’s numbers of the words you would like to search for. (In this example, I search for G4160 and G18.) Then, click the icon of the arrow pointed to the right.

enter image description here

Note: Searching for “G4160 G18” is equivalent to searching for “G4160 AND G18.” The search results will only produce the verses in which these two terms occur together in the same verse (not necessarily adjacent to one another, though). You could, if you had the need, search for verses where at least one of the terms ocurred. You do this by separating the two search terms by OR, e.g., “G4160 OR G18.”

Then, the following results appear:

  • This worked WONDERFULLY for me. Thank you! – Gus L. May 19 at 17:23
  • @GusLott—Ha, my mistake. Now I realize why the checkmark was not visible to you. I deleted all my comments since they are obviously done in error. Thank you for letting me know. – Der Übermensch May 19 at 20:46
  • +1, BlueLetterBible is a fantastic resource – Nacht May 20 at 0:21
