What is Corresponding Selection?

  • Corresponding Selection is a resource Visual Filter that allows you to select text in one resource whilst Logos highlights the corresponding text in the other resource(s).
  • It works with Original language resources and with resources aligned to the Original languages (reverse interlinears).
  • Its use is not restricted to bibles (see below).
  • It can be useful in seeing how different translations represent the original language words.
  • It is also useful when viewing an Original language passage and you want to see how it is translated in different bibles.
  • It is advised to have your Bibles linked together so that the same passage is showing in all Bibles that you want to use Corresponding Selection.
  • Please watch the Logos tutorial video Sympathetic Highlighting.

How can I tell if my resource will work with Corresponding Selection?

  • Open the resource and look in its Visual filters menu. If you see Corresponding Selection in the drop down list, then this resource will work with Corresponding Selection.


  • In this example we will be using the ESV, NASB95 and the SBLGNT.
  • Open the Bibles as shown below.

    • The ESV and NAS95 are Reverse-Interlinears. This is required since the original Language is searched by Logos when you highlight words.
    • The bibles are linked together on Set A to align the passages visible in each window.
  • Select the filter Corresponding Selection for NASB95 as shown (from the Visual filter menu) and repeat for the other bibles.
  • Now select some words in the ESV

    1. Select a phrase from verse 7
    2. Notice that the other 2 Bibles have a word(s) highlighted.
  • Now select some words in SBLGNT to see how the Greek is translated into English.

    1. Select words from verse 8
    2. Notice that Logos has highlighted words in the English Bibles.
