Requires e-Sword 11+ for windows or e-sword for iOS
This module includes Septuagint OT and SBL NT.

Module features
  • Old Testament:
    • Rahlf's Septuagint alternate texts: In some books or chapters, Rahlf's Septuagint presents two different texts, from different manuscripts. The Bible module offers the text included in e-Sword Greek OT, while the Commentary module offers the alternate text when it is available. Versions for each book are detailed in Bible and Commentary information, from e-Sword menu.
    • Mapped versification: Old e-Sword LXX module (until version 10) used to have versification mapped to Hebrew, so you had the same text when comparing different Bibles. This has changed in e-Sword 11, now the Greek OT module presents the verses in the Septuagint order, which means that if you want to compare them with Hebrew or any modern translation, sometimes you need to be switching chapters. This module recovers the mapped versification of the previous version, and adds some new verse mappings, according to Rahlf's footnotes.
    • Several errors corrected from original e-Sword module.
  • New Testament:
    • ​​Variants from all major critical editions, including NA28: Bible module features SBL Greek New Testament, and the Commentary module features the complete apparatus, updated to reflect all variants in: Nestle-Aland 28/UBS 5, NA27/UBS 4, Robinson-Pierpont Byzantine Textform 2005, Westcott-Hort, Textus Receptus, Tregelles. Original work by Dr. Michael W. Holmes, with a few additions of mine. An explanation of the critical symbols is available in module's information from the e-Sword menu.
Note: For a better experience, I recommend installing the attached SBL Greek font, though the module will work with default e-Sword fonts.

What's New in Version 1.2 (See full changelog)

  • 1.2:
  • - Added some more mappings in Exodus, Numbers, Deutoronomy, Joshua and 3/1Kings
  • - Many typos corrected.
  • - Removed blue color from Deutercanonicals/Apocrypha and added indentation in NT apparatus, all for better readability.
  • - Changed the extension to .bbli and .cmti, so Mac users don't need to rename the files.
  • 1.1: Some typos corrected, and one missing variant added in Matthew 5:23.
  • 1.0: Initial release.

Thanks.  This looks like it will be a useful module!

I found the versification markers in the Septuagint very useful.

I like a total of five kinds of brackets, used in this module, to indicate the different in versification.

I think (To ...) and (From ...) in the book of Proverbs is a smart way to indicate the original order, within the limitations of e-Sword system.

 

just one question, which version of Rahlfs is in this module, 1935 or 1979?

Grace and peace, brother Juan Miguel Corral Cano! Thank you for this great module combo! I thank God that He has bless you!

Brother Juan Miguel Corral Cano, something is wrong with this module combo. This is the Bible, and I cannot get the commentary to show anything, but I'm not sure which part of the Bible text has comments. Please help. Thank you!

I wish I knew how to upload a screenshot so you can see what I see. But I copied the first verse of Ruth as an example of what the entire text that I viewed thus far looks like.

 

Rth 3:1 <grk>??pe? d? a?t? ??eμ?? ? pe??e?? a?t?? T??ate?, ?? μ? ??t?s? s?? ???pa?s??, ??a e? ????ta? s??; </grk>

 

Thank you!

This module is not compatible with the RTF based e-Sword 10.4: use e-Sword 11.5 instead or other e-Sword versions.

And rename Greek Bible.bblx to Greek Bible.bbli and Greek Bible-App.cmtx to Greek Bible-App.cmti

Thank you very much for your kind words. As Katoog said, you need to install the latest version of e-Sword for the module to work. You can download it from www.e-sword.net.

 

If you want to know which part of the Old Testament has comments, you can see it by clicking in the e-Sword menu on Commentary->Information. There is the list of the OT books and chapters with alternate versions.

 

For the New Testament, the main Bible module has special symbols to mark the variants, so verses having those marks are those that have a commentary. However, you won't be able to see the marks with e-Sword 11 default Greek font. That's why I recommend using the SBL font, attached to this download on a zip file. Just unzip it, and double click on the file to install it.

@Eliran Wong

 

I'm glad you found the module useful. In answer to your question, the text is the same as the default e-Sword module, that is, the 1935 edition of the Septuagint made by Alfred Rahlfs. I used my printed 2006 second edition to look up the places where I needed to add verse mappings, but if I am not wrong, the notes I used haven't changed since the 1935 first edition.

 

For those who don't know what we are talking about, a little history: The Greek OT text that you can find in default e-Sword module, as well as in most other webpages and free Bible study programs, is from the 1935 two-volume edition of the Septuagint, made by Alfred Rahlfs D.D. Ph.D..

That edition is regarded by scholars as a reliable basis for the study of the Septuagint, although it is not considered fully critical but "semi-critical" (because it doesn't present all the variants from different manuscripts, bust just a summary of the most relevant ones). But so far it is the best complete edition of the Septuagint. It was Rahlf's last work (in fact, he died the same year it was published), so in a certain sense it is the fruit of a lifetime work by one of the greatest experts in the Greek Bible text in all history.

It had a second edition, on a single volume, in 2006. It is basically the same text, with a couple minor modifications to the text and several additions to the notes, made by another great expert, Dr. Robert Hanhart. It is an affordable book, for the average student or clergy.

 

Now, the other edition that Eliran mentions is another project started also by Rahlfs in 1931, of a fully critical edition of the Septuagint. Since there are myriads of variants in the manuscripts, each Bible book needed to be edited as a single volume. Rahlfs did the first one, the Book of Psalms (together with Odes), in 1931, which had a second edition in 1979. The project is still unfinished, 67 books have been published so far by different scholars. This edition is very expensive, and digital versions available for commercial Bible study software are astronomically expensive. But the 1935/2006 Rahlf's Septuagint is more than enough for most of us who want to read and study the Word of God.

Thank you, brother Juan Miguel Corral Cano! I did read the requirement note, but I read right past it, without paying attention to it because I was in a hurry. So I missed that instruction.

 

My primary use of e-Sword is e-Sword X, so I would like to offer a special thanks to you and Katoog for helping me to see that all I needed to do was change the last letter of the file extension from ' x '  to  ' i '. In addition, I was not able to use the e-Sword X User Files Import File Menu command to install this module combo. I had to manually copy and paste the files into their appropriate places in the Finder.

 

I do have e-Sword 11.0.5 installed. Actually, I run it via CrossOver on the Mac platform. I am not sure why I saw the text of Ruth with all of the question marks and HTML code commands in angle brackets. LoL Wow, what a ride!

 

In case anyone else is using e-Sword X, and wants to use this module combo, do the following:

 

1) Make sure e-Sword X is not running. So use Quit command from the e-Sword X Menu, or if you want to save your window layout configuration, Quit the app by clicking the red button in the top left-hand side of the app window.

 

2) Unzip the SBL Greek font from its Zip File by double-clicking on the Zip File in the Finder, and launch the Font Book app to install it on your Mac. Once the Font Book app is open, go to the File Menu and select the Add Fonts command. Then navigate to the place in the Finder where you unzipped the SBL Greek font, select it and click the Open Button.

 

3) Change the file extension of the Greek Bible.bblx file to Greek Bible.bbli and Greek Bible-App.cmtx to Greek Bible-App.cmti.

 

4) In the Finder app, while in the Go Menu press the Option key on your Apple Keyboard, and select Library. Once in the Library folder in the Finder follow the following file path:

 

Library > Containers > net.e-sword.e-Sword-X > Data > Library > Application Support. Once in the Application Support folder copy and paste the Greek Bible.bbli and the Greek Bible-App.cmti files there.

 

5) Launch e-Sword X. Look for the Greek Bible.bbli module in the Bible Window. It is called ' Greek '. And look for the Greek Bible-App.cmti module in the Commentary Window. It is called ' Greek-App '.

 

If any Mac users have trouble, or want to know how to get this to work via CrossOver, just message me here on the Bible Support website. I'll help in any way I can.

 

I thank God that He has blessed you all!

 

Thank You, Jesus!

Hello. I just submitted an update, mainly a bugfix release with dozens of typos corrected and some minor changes. I am preparing a major update that will include word tagging, with God's favor.

Thanks for your good work. Is there any changes in verse mapping information in this update?
