This week’s blog article is based on a question from a new Logos user:

I’m new to Logos and just discovered the Grid view when I search the Bible. Could you provide some explanation as to what this is?

The Grid view is another gem in Logos, and I’m happy to provide some help below:

  4. Type favor in the Search box (D)
  5. Press the Enter/Return key to generate the results
  6. Select Grid as the view (E)
  7. Use these explanations to read the Grid view
  • The searched Bibles are displayed at the top by their abbreviations (F)
  • The verses in which the word favor appears in at least one of the search Bibles appears in the left column (G)
  • A fill box indicates the word favor appears in the Bible in the column (in the image favor appears in Gen 6:9 in the NRSV) (H)
  • An unfilled box shows the word favor does NOT appear in the Bible in that column (in the image favor does NOT appear in Gen 31:2 in the NRSV) (I)
  • The text of the verses shown is coming from the Bible selected at the top (in the image NASB95 is the selected Bible) (J)
  • Click a different Bible at the top to change the preview verses to that Bible)
  • Hover on a filled or unfilled box to see a popup of the verse from the Bible in that column
