3. You can set the search range by using "Set books, chapters, verses search condition:". If you want search all books in bible, leave blank. But if you want search Old Testament only, you can just input "OT" on the range textbox.
Here are some example for search range setting:
|OT||Search in Old Testament|
|NT||Search in New Testament|
|GEN||Search in book Genesis.|
|GEN-EXO||Search from Genesis to Exodus.|
|GEN:1||Search in Genesis Chapter 1.|
|GEN:1-10||Search in Genesis from Chapter 1 to 10.|
|GEN-EXO:1-10:1-50||Search from Genesis to Exodus, Chapter 1 to 10, verse 1 to 50.|
This will not implied that GEN:1:1-EXO:10:10 is going to search from GEN:1:1 to EXO:10:10.
Note: if you set search range, don't put keyword field empty. This will show ALL verses in this range.
