At Rubén Gómez’s request, here are the answers to all the questions in my BibleWorks Pop Quiz. I included the commands I used. If I’ve overlooked a better command or made some error, I’m happy to hear about it in the comments.

1. Find all ESV occurrences in Paul of words beginning in, but not the word in.

ESV .in?* 209 hits

2. How many Greek OT verses are there with the forms κυριος AND θεος?

l OT BGT .κυριος θεος 840 hits

l OT BGM .κυριος θεος 2437 hits

4. What’s the difference between these two searches? BGM .ιησους and BGT .ιησους.
