Display a Verse from All Bibles

Recently I was reading Revelation 3.20 in the ESV where Jesus says:

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

I noticed being used is the phrase in to rather than the word into. To refresh my English grammar, I quickly googled the difference between in to and into.

I then wanted to see how this verse is worded in all of my English Bibles. There are several ways to accomplish this task in Logos, but I’ll show you what I did that evening in my personal study.

First, I created a collection of English Bibles and then I used Text Comparison to display Revelation 3:20 from that collection:

  • Choose Tools | Collections
  • Name the collection English Bibles (A)
  • Type this text in the Rule box: type:bible AND lang:english which encompasses resources categorized in the Library as Bibles published in the English language (B)
  • Close the Collections panel (C)

1-collection

  • Choose the Tools menu
  • Right click on Text Comparison (D)
  • Select Open in a floating window (E)

2-text-comp

  • Type Revelation 3:20 in the Reference box (F)
  • Select English Bibles from the Resources drop down list (G)

3-set-up-tc

  • Choose the Text Comparison panel menu (H)
  • Select Vertical layout (I)

4-vert-layout

Notice that Logos displays in list form that one verse from all of the English Bibles you own! (J)

If you’d like to continue this study, using the Search feature, locate all of the occurrences of both the phrase in to and the word into in your Bible.
