Searching for Immanuel in Hebrew
Posted 07 December 2008 - 11:37 PM
Since the Hebrew for all three is identical, there should be some way of searching the text which will bring up all three references.
However, I have not found a way to do this. The searches I do only bring up 7:14 and 8:8, and do not show 8:10. Which is a major omission.
Does anyone know how to do this?

[LINK BHS-W4 2] <OR> [LINK BHS-W4 3]
That will combine the two lemma searches into one search and show you all the results in one tab. I have pasted a screen shot below. (Nevermind, evidently the uploads directory is not yet available.)
Another option would be simply to search for that phrase in the BHS-GBS, since it is untagged and will find that exact phrase without considering any tagging information. I might be forgetting an easier way to do this in the tagged text, but if I'm not, then a possible feature request would be an option to ignore tagging in a tagged text. You can get around this now with a character search, but for a phrase with this many characters, that clearly would be inefficient.

Thanks for your prompt response. I don't have BHS-GBS so I can't try that option yet.
But the real problem is, what if I did not know about Isaiah 8:10. I discovered it by accident - not by a search in Accordance.
I should be able to discover Isaiah 8:10 from Isaiah 7:14 and 8:8 since textually they are identical.
I suppose we should be able to turn off the tagging and search the actual text.
My fear is what other similarities am I missing in all sorts of other places.
Let's see if anyone else can shed light on this.

"עמנו אל" <OR> "עמ נו אל"
Of course, you need to know that this is the case in order to find them.
