Objective

To show how an original language word is translated in other bibles – primarily your English bibles with a Reverse Interlinear.

Using Information Tool

The Information tool in current versions of Logos can be used to show translations in other bibles e.g. from a word in one RI to its translation in your other RI’s (below).




  1. Open a Bible (one which has Reverse Interlinear ability. e.g. ESV, NKJV, NASB)
  2. Locate a word in which you want to see in different translations and right click on it.
  3. The Right Click menu will appear. On the right side of the menu locate your Lemma (make sure not to use an lemma article) and click on it.
  4. Now on the left side of the menu click on *Morph Search:xxxxx (where xxxx shows your lemma).
    • Now Logos opens the search window, we will need to make some adjustment as shown below



  5. Click on the Resources field. Logos will show you a drop down list.
    1. Locate your collection English Bibles (if you haven’t built it please see Creating an English Bibles collection below), or if you have tagged your English bibles you can select your tagged Bibles.



  6. Now lets limit the Bible range to where our word was selected from.
    Click on the Range field. In the drop down menu click in the New Reference Range box. Now type in the scripture reference for the word you started your search with. This limits your search to showing Only the same scripture reference for your word in your English Bibles.



  7. Now click on the display method Aligned to have your result word lined up for you.
    1. Notice how your word is found in your different English Bibles.


Creating an English Bibles collection

The example below will show you how to build a collection of English Bibles. But if you have used Tagging to indicate Reverse Interlinear bibles you could use that as a collection rule e.g. mytag:RI.



  1. In the top menu click on Tools
  2. In the drop down menu click on Collections. Logos will open the Collection tool in a new panel.



  3. In the Collection toolbar click on New to create a new collection.




  4. Now in the name box type: English Bibles
  5. Now in the Rule box type: type:bible AND lang:english
    1. Now Logos shows you how many books in your collection and shows you the titles.
