Is it possible to create a custom Bible which contains additional book than the standard Bible format. I want to add omitted books like Sirag and Enoch. Can it be done? It seems that Sword only recognizes the standard books?

 

Also I need to adjust the chronology of the Books - can this be done?

e-Sword supports the Apocrypha (and thus Sirach) but not Enoch.

 

No way to adjust the order of the Books.

 

e-Sword is probably the most accommodating of free Bible software in this area. For theological reasons, most other free Bible software does not even show the Apocrypha along side the Protestant canon.

Eish! OK Tnx.

 

I want to add chapter headings. But when I just add them without a verse ref the module keeps kicking it out. How do I add the headings?

You can add headings as follows:

 

Gen 1:1 THIS IS THE HEADING (followed by shift-enter)

(shift-enter again if you want a space between the heading and the verse)

In the Beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. (regular enter)

This way the heading becomes part of Verse 1?

Also can someone advise as how to show or display the Apocrypha like maccabees and sirach? I entered these books into my Bible module. As per the chronological order in the abbrev list. But the books do not display in Sword? Is there a setting?

Make sure you have set the define variable for apocrypha to 1

 

#define apocrypha=1

 

Mark the verses as you have done for other Bible books, but use the ones that Tooltip tool will know, as extracted below. Obviously you don't include the book number and hyphen. You can see what abbreviations will work.

 Yes.  This is the only option to get headings at the start of a chapter.

I am busy doing a commentry portion on a cusom Bbile. The custom Bible contain Apro books. Some of them as well as normal bible books has additional verses (like Daniel). The commentary module will not validate these verses and therefore will not save the module. How do I deal with this?
