I uploaded an .HTM file of the Vine's Expository Dictionary of the Old and New Testament Words. It was posted online and stated there was no copyright as it had expired. The version was a PDF which I converted to .HTM. You can add this into the Topics within e-sword.

The PDF copy might not be under copy right, by there already is an e-sword module of the Combined Vine's (both OT and NT).  It is a premium module...probably under copy right.


This is the premium edition of this famous Bible study classic. It includes not only Vine's famous New Testament dictionary, but an extensive Old Testament counterpart as well, edited by Merrill F. Unger, the famous Old Testament scholar. All entries in both O.T. and N.T. dictionaries are organized alphabetically in English, along with the Hebrew or Greek words from which they are translated. Vine's famous insights into the various shades of meaning, plus related Scripture references are included. Keyed throughout to Strong's numbering system. Warren Wiersbe says: " ... one of my favorite tools ... a great time-saver for the busy student."

Thus says the LORD, "Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, (Jeremiah 9:23-24a)

"Defenders of the faith are inclined to be bitter until they learn to walk in the light of the Lord. When you have learned to walk in the light of the Lord, bitterness and contention are impossible." --Oswald Chambers, in Biblical Psychology from The Quotable Oswald Chambers.

I was under the impression that Vines was always copywrited?

I Know I paid a small fee for it and didn't buy more than one copy.


Some premium moduals I've got more than one copy.

They are all a Blessing.

It may have been renewed under GATT.  However, if it wz published in US 1st or simultaneously in both Europe and US (assuming that year is the same in both Europe and US for publication) and not renewed then PD.  GATT cannot restore it.  It only restores works published in Europe 1st.  


There wz a supreme court decision on works that were published earlier in Europe that fell out of copyright in US.

The original Vine's NT is public domain.  Period.


The version that can be purchased has an OT section which is not PD.  And I believe some of the NT has been edited/annotated, enough that the publishers are claiming it's a new version.  so, obviously, that wouldn't be PD either.
