In eSword, is it possible to search for all of the occurrences of a particular scripture in your eSword library?


For example, say I wanted to find all the references to John 17:3 in all of my resources, is there a feature in eSword that will help me do this?


Thanks for any help.

I did the test with Psa 118:22 because this verse is surely used as cross reference.
Click Bible and Extended search "Search for the exact phrase"
Psa_118:22 (with underscore)
One African Bible translation has it (PWL)

Do the same without underscore: Psa 118:22
Those Bibles using cross references: RHB(my translation), MLV2020 and TS2009

Then I think: I have "taken" this cross reference from KJ3 so why is it not listed?
I look to verse 1Pe 2:7 of the KJ3 and find Psa. 118:22  (with a .)

Then use I compare mode for 1Pe 2:7

The NKJV84 has "Psalm 118:22"
LITV and AUV have "Psa. 118:22"
JMNT has [Ps. 118:22]
LausanneNT1872 has (Ps. 118 : 22)
The Scriptures 1998+ has Ps. 118:22.
SOMB has (Psa. 118:22-23)

Do you see the problem?
If every module maker should use the e-Sword verse numbering as standard then was this easier.

This is not something that I suppose could ever be fixed considering the volume of references eSword holds. The system used by the PC Study Bible, BibleWorks, (example of BibleWorks attached) and JW Library are uniformed. But, eSword for is age, still has a few resources they don't have. Whatever the case, it's still better than having to leaf though volumes of hardback books as I would once have to do.

Thanks for putting in all of this work in helping to answer my question Katoog. You know your stuff. 😊
