There are two types of search. The simplest one just lets you look up a word or words:

Type the word or words that you want to find in the text box and then click on the Search button. To just read the Bible, click on the book icon. To come back to this help page at any time, just click on the "question mark" icon at right.

If you want to carry out a more complicated search, click on the double magnifying glass icon. This will bring up a form like this:

The options are as follows:

with all of the words These words must be in every verse returned.
with the exact phrase Only verses containing this phrase exactly will be returned by the search.
with at least one of the words These words are optional, but verses containing them will come higher.
without the words These words must not be in every verse returned.
with demutations of If you're unsure of the root word, try entering it here. The search will show this word and any word or words that it finds which might be nonmutated versions of the word you entered.
with mutations of Look for verses containg the word entered and possible mutations of it.
