Highlighting Passages Side-by-Side

Recently, a friend asked:

How do I, with Logos/Accordance, compare two Biblical chapters/psalms, highlighting like terms between the two? In Hebrew.

This is actually fairly simple to do in Logos using Visual Filters. I’ll use Psalm 14 and Psalm 53, since their similarities are well known and noted.

Step 1) Open Two Psalms Side-by-Side

I’m using the Lexham Hebrew Bible to do my morph searches. To open a second version of the same resource, you’ll need to click and drag it from your library into a pane.

Step 1Step 2) Create Your Visual Filter

I can create a visual filter by going to Documents -> Visual Filter. Once I open this up, (I’ve named mine  Psalms Comparison) I change the type to “Morph” in the upper right hand corner.

Step 2

3) Pull in Morph Data

The easiest way for me to pull in morph data is by right clicking on the desired term, going under search, and selecting the Lemma.

Step 3

I just copy and paste this code into my visual filter.

Step 4

Step 4) Turn on the Visual Filter in your Hebrew Bible

To turn on a Visual Filter, simply go into your bible and select the three circle icon, and then select your visual filter.

Step 5

Conclusion

Here, you can see that I’ve now highlighted all the occurrences of Elohim vs YHWH. And we can see that whereas Psalm 14 interpolates YHWH between occurrences of Elohim, Psalm 53 is consistent in its usage of Elohim.
