Perhaps you’ve encountered this scenario:
A Bible Word Study report is generated for a Hebrew/Greek lemma appearing numerous times in the Bible. The Translation section shows various English translations, but there are small slivers of the ring without English words.
So is it possible to see the English translations corresponding to the small slivers?
The answer is a resounding no . . . but yes! How’s that for a definite answer?
I’ll explain as we walk through these steps:
- Open NASB to 1 Corinthians 13:7 (A)
- Right-click on the word all (B)
- Select the Greek lemma (the one with the ring icon) from the left side of the Context menu (C)
- Select Bible Word Study from the right side of the Context menu (D)
- Notice in the Translation section the Greek lemma translated all appears over 1200 times in the NT (E)
- Notice the most frequently used English translations are represented with “large” ring sections and English words on the outside (F)
- Look carefully around the word anything to see small slivers of the ring with no English words outside them (there’s simply not enough space for them) (G)
- Click the Panel menu in the upper-right corner of Bible Word Study (H)
- Move the increase text size button to the far right (I)
- Notice the small slivers are now larger (J)
- Rest the cursor on a sliver to see the English translation in its own ring (K)
- Click the sliver to place the verses with that English translation underneath the main ring (L)
Even though increasing the ring size does not populate the ring with all the English translations, at least the slivers usually become large enough to work with them!
