Mike your idea gave me an idea.  Instead of bible frequency, we use the
number of hits if you enter the word in Google, and use that as a
multiplier.  Good thinking Mike, well done, lad.  We might need to eliminate
of, and and the.  Otherwise it becomes a contest to see who can play and, of
or the the most.  Writing about of, the and and creates interesting
sentences however.
