I am comparing Hawker's whole bible commentary that I have in e-sword with a pdf version I downloaded.  In Matthew 18 of the pdf file, I notice comments for various verses.   However, in e-sword, I cannot find any verse comments for the entire chapter 18 and the little "i" is displayed on the HPM tab in the commentary section.  There are verse comments for the other chapters of Matthew.  And I made sure that I have my commentary set to display verse comments.  Does this mean that there are other missing pieces for Hawker in other areas of the Bible?  Please let me know if I am in error.  Thank you.

I had not previously examined this commentary very closely.


I initially thought this was an older, "legacy" e-Sword Module and didn't have high expectations on its quality. So I was pleasantly surprised to see that the module was very well made, within the past 2 years. That's a relief because on the older, sloppy modules, it's easier just to remake the whole module. But that's not the case here!


Since the overall module is very well formatted, I would guess this type of error isn't systematic but rather the exception.


I'll contact Dyan Largo-Afonso to see if he wants to look into this and if not, I will later on.

I opened this in T4 and the info was there I changed the define version form  2  to 3 created the cmtx and it now shows the info in esword


Josh can you confirm this

May God change our hearts to what the truth is

2Ti_2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Rom_9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

2Ti 2:24-25  And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

Hi All,


The corrected version of Hawker's Poor Man Commentary is now uploaded.


The data for Matthew chap. 18 was there (as DSaw has rightly pointed out), but there was a verse numbering error in the sqlite database.

The error has now been corrected. Sorry for the inconvenience, and please download the corrected file again.
