This ABP bible is plain except with [notes].  There is no strongs or anything like that.

The Apostolic Bible Polyglot (ABP), originally published in 2003 is a Bible translation by Charles VanderPool. The ABP is an English translation with a Greek interlinear gloss and is keyed to a concordance. The numbering system, called "AB-Strong's", is a modified version of Strong’s concordance, which was designed only to handle the traditional Hebrew Masoretic Text of the Old Testament, and the Greek text of the New Testament.

What makes this Bible translation so unique is that the entire translation is based completely on Greek text, for the New Testament and the Old Testament. This allows the reader to make an immediate one-to-one comparison of an English word as it is being translated both in the Old and New Testament. The original typed text of the ABP followed the Codex Vaticanus-Sixtine text family. Then with the acquisition of the 1519 Aldine Bible in microfilm format from the Koninklijke Bibliotheek of the Netherlands, a comparison was made between the Sixtine and Aldine texts, where one reading was chosen over the other. With the acquisition of the 1709 edition of the Greek Old Testament, edited by Lambert Bos, the 1518 Complutensian Polyglot variants, located in the extensive footnote sections, were added for comparison with the Sixtine and Aldine texts. With further comparison it was decided to choose mainly the text where two printed editions agreed. But since that time the acquisition of a full set of the Complutensian Polyglot Bible in facsimile format enabled a closer comparison to be made, not only of variant readings, but also chapter and verse variations, along with punctuation.

As various manuscripts become available, these will also be compared with the text of the Apostolic Bible, and changes may be made. The Vatopedi manuscript, available from the Library of Congress in microfilm form, is one such manuscript among many that will be used for comparison.

Excellent.  A lot easier to read without the Strong's numbers; although having both is better.

Found an error where 2 Chronicles Chapter 7 is just Chapter 6 repeated

I have the e-Sword's official APG files, and there is no repeat in them. My recommendation is to delete the APG files you have, and download the ones that are from Rick Meyers.


As a side note, I don't understand why there has to be an APG here whilst there are official e-Sword ones available.




Charles, My ABP+ and ABP-G+ work fine.  It is just the ABP wo notes that has this issue here at this site.   what site can I find an ABP wo notes?  I used the download feature in esword but only ABP+ and ABP-G+ are listed.



Why isn't this like the mysword version for android with Strong's number's  and an English gloss under every word? Is it possible to do this for e-sword? I use this alot on my android tablet and was surprised there are separate files for the two languages in e-sword..
