I think it would be great if the [WITHIN] command could be expanded to work more like the Online Bible's PRX search operator, in particular the ability to search within X Verses instead of just X words. For reference, in Online Bible you would use PRX operator like:

Moses @xY Aaron

x is the number of your proximity, Y is the type of proximity.

Y can be V,P,C or B - Verse, Paragraph, Chapter or Book.

Interestingly, it didn't do Word, which Accordance does, but had other options Accordance does not. :)

I know you can change the range of search to be Paragraph, Chapter, or Book, but this general enhancement would open a new range of capabilities, even with three paragraphs or such, I don't think you can do that kind of thing now. [WITHIN] seems like a perfect place, just allow Words, Verses, Paragrphs, Chapters, or Books as options there.

Thanks for your consideration.

FWIW, I second the request to be able to specify VERSE proximity. It is something I've been wanting to see in Accordance for a while now.
