I have been looking for the NEB and the REB, but to no avail. Is there anywhere that the text of these can be found online? I thought I read somewhere that the REB was once available as a bblx, but I can't find it.

Thanks in advance,

It looks like the REB my not be available for e-Sword at this time. Some links below to help research if you haven't come across them already..

For various reasons, the REB e-Sword resource has been pulled from distribution.

The history of the NEB e-Sword resource is much murkier. AFAIK, it was neither an official resource, nor commercially distributed.

Hi Jonathon,
I'm not too certain, and so I won't guarantee it. The REB was/is (which way it is now I don't know) available at Bible.org. As far as I am aware, the NEB has never been available for e-Sword. In fact I can go so far to say that as far as I am aware there isn't an online version of the NEB available at any of the Bible websites.

The only way for the NEB to become an e-Sword Bible module is permission to get permission from the publishers. Beyond that, its a no go sort of a thingy.

Blessings,
Stephen (Php 1:21).

I have found the NT text of the NEB at the following website:

http://www.katapi.or...troContents.php

And as far as I know, the publishers no longer publish the NEB and have no interest in doing so.

Well, well, well! Now that has to be the most interesting bit of news I've heard for a long time. Thanks for that, bro. You have plonked into my head an idea. Great stuff!

Blessings,
Stephen (Php 1:21).

And fun enough, I located some of the OT books (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Leviticus, Job, Psalms) for the NEB as well. So, we'll see where this leads...

That's very good news, but I advise you to verify first that it's actually the NEB, comparing with a printed edition. Very often the Bibles online are not what they purport to be. And once the module is published, it's impossible to stop it from distribution.

Regards,

Carlos

Well, I've been proven wrong. Thank you for that info, Jon.
