Bible Desktop/JSword (thus AlKitab and FireBible) have proximity
searches across verse boundaries. The syntax is reminiscent of Lucene,
but a bit different.
Aaron ~3 Moses will find all verses with Aaron within 3 verses of Moses.
All the front ends have proximity searches within a verse when using
lucene. I'm not sure of the syntax, but it is listed on the Lucene
