Logos 5: Locate Noun/Verb Combinations

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

This question was recently submitted through our website:

I want to search for the combination of the word “spirit” and all the verbs used with that noun. How can I search for noun/verb combinations?

There are actually several ways to locate this information, but for now I want to emphasize a section in the Bible Word Study guide:

  • Choose Guides | Bible Word Study.
  • Type this in the word box: g:pneuma (A).
  • From the dropdown list, select the Greek word with the glossary breath; spirit (B).
  • If the report doesn’t generate on its own, press Enter to build it.

1-BWS-Greek-word

  • Navigate to the section called Grammatical Relationships. (Please note: this section doesn’t appear in the Starter base package.) (C)
  • Notice the subsection Subject of…, which lists all the verbs in the NT associated with this Greek word! (D)

2-Gramm-Rel

To execute the same search for the most prominent Hebrew word translated spirit in the OT:

  • Type this in the Word box: h:ruah (E).
  • From the dropdown list, select the Hebrew word with the glossary spirit (F).

3-Hebrew-word

  • Notice, again under Grammatical Relationships, the subsection Subject of…, which lists all the OT verbs associated with this Hebrew word (G).

  1. Grammatical relationships is an outstanding feature of the Logos Bible Word Study report function!

  2. Just to point out a typo – for Hebrew type "ruach" (as in label G) not "ruah" (as in label E & F). Interesting stats – in the NT the Spirit is mainly speaking and saying; whereas in the OT He is acting and being. Thanks for the tips.

  3. I see this feature everyday but have never actually used it until now…wow!
