The question: Is there a way to get a Hebrew OT/Tanach with the vowel pointing for the e-Sword LT app in the next two weeks?

 

The backstory: I'm the Director of Holy Language Institute, an online school teaching Hebrew from a Messianic Jewish perspective. We've taught 1000s of students and have approximately 150,000 followers on social media at present. I absolutely love e-Sword and use it regularly in my lessons and am actually working on an e-Sword tutorial series right now. As a veteran Hebrew teacher who is passionate about helping people understand the original Hebrew/Jewish context of the Bible I'm disappointed that on both the desktop and mobile versions the Hebrew OT/Tanach available doesn't have the vowel pointing (nikkudot). It's almost impossible to read the Hebrew texts without the vowel pointing unless you're extremely fluent in the language, which means the desktop version is almost useless for aspiring Hebrew language students unless they go offsite, and the mobile app isn't useful unless you could somehow get third-party modules which as far as I can see isn't possible, is it? Please let me know if I can help in any way, and if someone is able to get a Tanach with the nikkudot available for the app in the next couple weeks I can include it in my videos which are coming out now. I'm proud to recommend e-Sword as the BEST free Bible software available and this would be the last step enabling me to recommend it without condition. Thanks for your help!

If you convert the "Hebrew Study Bible" into Apple modules then have you Hebrew Bible modules with vowel pointing (nikkudot) based on the Westminster Leningrad Codex.

The Apple converter

Or use the Hebrew modules of Eliran Wong based on the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia, Fifth Revised Edition

I like it rather without pointing as the Originals and because e-Sword lacks a way for searching without accents or pointing.

This Website is made for offline third party modules.

Copy files from your computer to your iOS app https://support.appl.../en-us/HT201301

 

And I should rather buy e-Sword HD for the iPad in a class.

This is SO helpful; thank you! What do you think, is there a way to contact Rick Meyers and request that a Tanach with nikkud be added to the resources available directly through the software and app?

Click here and you will be able to make contact.

 

If this proves to be helpful, don't be shy to let us all know. :D
