  • Most of the Old Testament was written in Hebrew, whilst some parts of a few books were written in Aramaic (see the resource A General Introduction to the Bible).
  • The New Testament was written in Greek.
  • It is fun to see how a Bible translation is rendered from an original language word, and the BWS is a good tool to explore original language words in depth.
    • Another way of exploring original language words is to use a bible that supports Reverse Interlinears.
  • See Opening from the right click menu on how to open the BWS to an original language word from one of your Bibles (using the right click menu saves you from having to type in an original language word).

Saved Bible Word Study’s

When does Logos save Guides?

Anytime that you add text within a Guide or add/delete/reposition sections Logos will save that guide. Logos saves the guide with the exact word that you entered in the Word box. For instance if you were to type in the Title box, then Logos would save the guide. The areas available for text entry are the Title box, Description box, and Notes boxes. If you use the Add button to add sections, or if you delete sections, or rearrange sections then Logos saves the guide.

Why are saved Guides completely different when viewed later?

When viewing a saved guide some time afterward you may see sections (and data) different to your current template, so just realize that its format and content is “frozen” when it is saved.


Deleting BWS Guides

Deleting a saved BWS Guide

In Logos 5+ go to the Guides menu, right click a saved BWS guide and click Delete.
In Logos 4 it is necessary to locate and open a saved guide to delete it:

  1. Open your saved guide (see Opening a saved Guide)
  2. Click on the guide’s icon to see the drop down menu.

  2. In the drop down menu locate the custom guide that you want to delete and right click on it.
  3. In the pop-up menu click on Delete.



Hyperlinking and Editing

Copying the hyperlink to a BWS works the same as in other resources. An example of copying a hyperlink for a BWS guide to a note file is shown below. You could just as easily create the link in other places which support hyperlinks.




  1. Click on the BWS’s icon to open the menu.
  2. In the drop down menu click on URL. Logos creates a link to your BWS guide and stores it in the clipboard.



  3. Open a note file. (click on File in top menu, then in drop down menu click on Notes on the left)
  4. Enter your text in the body of a note. Then use your mouse to select the text that you want to be your link text.
  5. Right click in the Hyperlink box.
    1. In the pop-up menu click on Paste.



    2. Now you will see your link text turn blue, Logos has created your link to the BWS guide.


Editing text inside a BWS guide Note

You may have noticed that Logos does not provide tools for editing your notes in a BWS guide. There is a work-around shown below which will allow you to add bullets, bold, hyperlinks, etc. that are supported by the Notes document Editor.

  • Create a temporary note in a note file



  1. Open/Create a Note file from the Documents menu.
    Click on Notes to create one or find an existing Note file and click on it.
  2. In your note file, click on Add note.
  3. This creates a note within the Note file which we will use temporarily:
    1. In the body of the note, type what you want to appear in the BWS guide.
    2. Add hyperlink(s) as needed.
    3. Add any other editing enhancement that you want.

      Now we will copy the text to the clipboard.



  4. Use your mouse to select the entire text.
    1. Right click on the selected text.
    2. In the pop-up menu click on Copy.

      Now we will add the text to the BWS guide’s note



  5. In the BWS guide:
    1. Click on Notes in the relevant section.
    2. Right click in the note box and click on Paste in the pop-up menu (not shown in the image). Formatted text will be pasted from the clipboard.
    3. Notice that hyperlink(s) and bold appear in our BWS note.
      If you hold the Ctrl key down and click on the hyperlink, Logos will open your link (use the Cmd key on Mac).
  6. When you have finished adding custom Notes to your BWS guide, delete the temporary note in your Note file.
