Gene, the main thing for anyone to know that would be interested in distributing this Bible is whether there is a copyright or some other licensing, such as Creative Commons. Otherwise, module builders can't distribute without permission. Personally, I don't know whether it is or not but it is labeled "Thailand Bible Society" which makes me think it is controlled by some type of licensing. If the above could be investigated and satisfied that is it ok to distribute, I would think it could be easily be converted from either another Bible app /or from a text file, provided that there aren't any versification issues. You are correct also that pdf is generally the last file format anyone wants to deal with.

Rev Steve, True! I'm going to guess that there must be a copyright/ licensing issue involved at some point here. I'm not sure how to even investigate that, much less resolve it. However, lacking this version on e-Sword A) doesn't detract from the usefulness of e-Sword otherwise and B ) is only a minor inconvenience for me (and probably anyone else, for that matter!).

 

Like acjthai, I felt/ feel it would be nice to have this version available for e-Sword. However, since it is so widely available on other platforms, it can be consulted easily enough and compared with Dr. Pope's ThaiKJV.

Gene, I think that is an extension of the United Bible Societies. Personally, I would like to see you get it here, however, I have many other irons in the fire. So my suggestion is for you and others that want it available, roll up your sleeves(that is what I do when I want something done, I do it myself) and start sending out requests to United Bible and/Thailand Bible for permission to have it on this platform. Here's what I see, probably 3 or 4 really want this here. But don't be discouraged, there are always several around that willingly will format it for e-Sword. Do you read Thai? Is it left to right? It is a strange character language...but it looks cool to me...I am a novice admirer of languages. Regards

Rev. Steve, Yes, Thai is read left to right. It isn't all that difficult to learn to read! Otherwise, I wouldn't have learned how to do it! 

 

Here is your first Thai language lesson: The word for "five" in Thai is pronounced, roughly "ha." So, "555" is used in Thai texting as shorthand for "ha ha ha."  LOL

 

I appreciate your suggestion about rolling up my sleeves. If you only had any idea what was actually up those sleeves, you would understand why this is taking so long!   555

 

Thank you for your input and encouragement. I'll keep you posted if I am able to make any progress.  

 

Blessings.
