How do I search for 2 or more occurrences of "e˙piŤ" in the same verse? I am looking for multiple cases of e˙piŤ in the same verse as you find in Ephesians 1:2 where in the ESV it is translated both as "on" and "in".

It's quite easy to find two or more occurrences. You simply search for επι <FOLLOWED BY> επι. If you want three or more you must set it up in the Construct window. This construct finds any word that is repeated three or more times in a verse.

Robert, for a search like: επι <FOLLOWED BY> επι
be mindful to play around with the option Search every verse|clause|sentence to see what you're looking for. Each will return different results as they change whether the two words must both appear in the same clause (approximated by punctuation), sentence, or verse.
