Greetings,
I was wondering if the ESV Bible module can be purchased for mysword. I know it comes free with e-sword but I can convert it using the tools. Any information is greatly appreciated.

Hi JW,
The MySword developers do not currently sell any premium modules and I do not believe they permission yet to distribute the ESV translation. I beleive they will be offering premium modules at some point.
Blessings,
Peter

An ESV translation would be awesome.

What about IVP bible background commentary or something similar?

The ESV is available free from e-Sword and you can download it using the the Downloading Tool in e-Sword, or you can click here and then download it.

The IVP Bible Background is available from eStudySource.com, and its US$39.99. Sorry that its not free.

Blessings,
Stephen (Php 1:21).

The SWORD Project offers the ESV bible for free. Can you use that module to convert to MySword?

It is easy to make an ESV bible module for MySword, we just need permission and the bible text in a text file. I am not sure if thee MySword developers have asked for permission yet or not.

An update, the MySword developers were unable to get permission to distribute ESV since it is offline Bible software.

Greetings,
Thank you all for the response. I am not computer literate in any way. I am trying to use the migration tool to convert the e-sword esv.bblx module over to my sword, seems difficult. I will keep everyone posted

JWJohnson,

I do not think you will be able to migrate the ESV to MySword because the bblx is encrypted. To migrate and e sword Bible to MySword you first have to convert it to a e sword 8 bbl file because the theWord importer only supports e sword 8x bibles. You then have to convert the e sword module to theWord and then use the MySword migration tools to convert the theWord Bible module to MySword.

The ESV bblx file will not work because it is encrypted.

Blessings,

Peter

That's odd that Crossway wouldn't give you the rights, as Youversion has download rights and the ESV has been free with the Amazon Kindle App for a long time. Could it be possible to do an RSV Mysword Module? It is close to the ESV and is my primary study bible.
