The stats I've got from a search don't make sense. Below is a screen shot.

The BHS shows 760 occurrences of nepes. The LXX shows 954 occurrences of psyce. The MT-LXX merge search shows 1352 hits (by paragraph). This is impossible. There can't be more exact matches than there are occurrences of an individual word. I though that maybe the hits count was doubled making exact matches (1352/2) which would sound about right. That seems to be what has happened in Hosea as shown by two occurrences in MT-LXX tab but four in the analytics table. But it can't be the case for every hit as Isaiah has 61 hits in analytics which obviously hasn't been doubled. Am I misunderstanding something or is this a bug?

 

On a separate note. I know that it is possible to tie a text to the results of the MT-LXX search so I can see the whole verse. But it still shows verses in between the result hits that I'm not interested in. Is it possible to only view verses that occur in the search results of MT-LXX as a separate text tab?

You have 61 hits in Isaiah because of Is 26:9. In the MT/LXX database, נפשׁ is listed twice on the same line. Check it out and read the database footnotes for that verse.

 

As for viewing only the hit verses in a text tied to the MT/LXX database, I don't think that is possible. The tied text will display all verses and scroll in sync with the database.

Thanks Sean, I feel I now know better how searches work in the MT/LXX. I found a way of eliminating a lot of verses in the middle. I searched a text for נפשׁ and then tied that text to the MT/LXX. Not perfect as it will include some verses I don't want, but it did reduce the number in between.

Mikep,

 

If you are trying to collect stats on how often ψυχη is translated as נפש it would also be a good idea to set a range for the LXX search to exclude the apocryphal/deueterocanonical books since they have no counterpart in the Hebrew module.
