Results Can Vary: Common words are ignored (such as: "if, for, and, because, when, what, where..."). If a word is not found in our keyword database, that word is also ignored. For example, 'sowing love' could find a passage referring to forbidden foods listed in the Old Testament because 'sowing' is not a keyword and 'cloven' includes the characters 'love.' Finally, not all Bible text is searched. Only significant words are considered, although that list is being constantly refined.
