Is there an economical way to search for all words in one language that are parallel to a specified construct in another? I'm looking for all LXX parallels to ἐχῶ in the middle voice. The only relevant Hebrew word search I can think of is '*', but this is VERY slow. Am I missing a shortcut?

I don't think you really want * on the HMT side. I agree it's slow but I don't think it's helpful either. It just highlights more words in the verses and they are not of course the parallel word you want.


I tried this below and there are only 66 hits for έχῶ in Ralhfs LXX. Then just MERGE that the MT-LXX parallel. Also open an HMT tab in parallel to the Ralhfs so see the text and mouseover tagged elements and such. You should then be able to survey the results, given there are not so many. That should enable you to pick out the Hebrew words of interest and then build a Greek and Hebrew version of the search if you then need it.


Other options are to search the Hebrew for a class of words like * @[verb] but that will miss non-verb parallels.
