unfortunately i came to know about this very lately. my interaction with brent has been great and i never saw such humble person who has great patience to hear and try to implement our requests about tool tip. he is always responds in short amount of time. without his tool, many of our work here could have been paralyzed. His tool was a great value add, backbone of this website. directly or indirectly he blessed thousands around the world with the help of his tool. his death is great loss for our community. I am sure he was greatly rewarded by GOD for all the contribution he has done for advancing HIS Kingdom. it was great achievement for a person from medical background, developing a software tool like this. he is inspiration to anyone who wish to be used by GOD.
is there any tool on our site to insert a BIBLE verse into sutdy notes/ notepad/ MS WORD based on given reference. example if i give john 3:16 it should insert the verse. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary To The Sacred Scriptures Both Of The Old And New Testament: Arranged In Alphabetical Order, And Containing, In Addition To The Usual Literal Explanation Of Words, Short Doctrinal And Practical Essays Upon Certain Points Of The Truths Of God. Designed For The General Use Of All Pious Readers Of The Word Of God; But More Especially For That Class Who Read The "Poor Man's Commentary On The Bible." By Robert Hawker, D.D. Late Vicar Of Charles, Plymouth. Ebenezer Palmer; Is, Paternoster Row, London. 1828. (Module Created by: Dyan Largo-Afonso [firstname.lastname@example.org], 10th Dec, 2011)
Preface. I have been prompted to the work proposed in the title page, from a humble hope, that under the blessing of GOD the HOLY GHOST, it may be rendered useful to the Christian world in general; and yet more particularly so, to that handful of the people; who read my POOR MAN'S COMMENTARY on the Bible, lately published in penny numbers. It struck me, that a work of this kind, might form a proper Appendix to it, and be found not a little helpful to serious readers. Under this impression I have engaged in this service; and for their accommodation, have directed the bookseller to publish an edition of it, upon the same plan and form as the Commentary. May the Lord commission both to his glory! There can need no recommendation of the word of God, more than its own intrinsic excellency. In the Jewish Church, so infinitely important was it considered, that the prince of the people was enjoined, "To write a copy of the Law of the Lord with his own hand in a book; and to read in it all the days of his life: that he might learn to fear the Lord his God; and that his heart should not be lifted up above his brethren." (Deu_17:18-20.) How vastly increased is the obligation in the Christian church, which adds to the Old Testament Scripture, the whole confirmation of the New; and compriseth within its life-giving contents, every thing that can be called interesting, in reference to the Person, Work, Character, Offices, and Relations of the Lord Jesus Christ! which hath indeed, in the fullest sense of the word, "the promise of the life that now is, and that which is to come." Here, the claim of the Word of Life is upon every soul! Here, both high and low, rich and poor, the king and the beggar, stand upon a level. And here, from hence must issue, the final decision of every man's everlasting state. "The word (saith Jesus)that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day." (Joh_12:48.) Many have reproached themselves in a dying hour, for having neglected the study of the word of life. But never was it known in the annals of mankind, that any in the close of life regretted that he had regarded the things of the world too little, and the Bible too much. It will be highly proper that the reader should be informed in this place, and before he enters upon the work here presented to him, what is proposed in the contents of it: that he may not expect more from it than is intended, and in the end find himself disappointed. He should be told then, that the present CONCORDANCE, is meant to differ in a great measure, from all preceding Dictionaries of the kind. The author wishes to compress into as small a compass as possible, all that is useful in a way of explanation, so as to pass over nothing that is essential, and at the same time to notice nothing that is superfluous. Hence many words will be omitted, whose obvious meaning, in the present day of knowledge, is so well understood, as to render their insertion here unnecessary. While on the other hand, some, that perhaps are but just glanced at in former Concordances, (but which according to the author's view demand more attention) will have a larger discussion. In short, the present design aims rather to be useful than large; to suit the humble Christian more than the learned. The reader is requested to keep in remembrance, through the whole of the work, that it is the POOR MAN'S CONCORDANCE. And to all such it is hoped, that what is here offered, under the divine blessing, will prove helpful, in "making wise unto salvation, through the faith which is in CHRIST JESUS!" One word more I would beg to offer, by way of Preface: namely, to observe, that with a view to greater usefulness, I have sometimes judged it might be profitable, when giving the names of persons, and of places, to direct the reader to the original word or root, from whence either hath been derived. It will not be unfrequently found that much meaning is veiled under it. And in doing this, I have only followed the plan of our old Bibles, whose marginal readings are truly valuable on this account. It is well known to all lovers of Biblical truths, that it was the uniform custom with our fathers in the church of God, and from the earliest period, to own God in his providences, by giving names to persons and places, when at any time receiving some more than ordinary manifestation of divine favour. Thus Abraham called the mount of deliverance in a critical moment, JEHOVAH JIREH. Jacob styled the place where the visions of the Lord began with him, BETHEL; and Moses was so called by his mother, from being drawn out of the water. And Hannah, no less from the same view of the Lord, had her Samuel. And the margin of the Bible, at each of those histories, as well as in numberless other instances of a like nature, hath thrown great light upon the subject, in giving their explanation. (See Gen_22:14. Gen_28:19. Exo_2:10. 1Sa_1:20.) It hath been my endeavour to render of the POOR MAN'S CONCORDANCE particularly useful, by adopting the same plan. And I venture to persuade myself, that I shall have thereby performed no unacceptable service to the truly pious reader. Perhaps, with some readers, an apology may be thought necessary, that I have entered upon this service, in sending forth before the Public a CONCORDANCE before that I have finished my COMMENTARY. But the truth is, I have, through grace, concluded my writings on the Old Testament Scripture; and many months since set up my EBEN-EZER upon that occasion. What I propose therefore by this Concordance, is intended only by way of a parenthesis, between my finishing the Commentary on the Old Testament, and my entering on the New. I hope very shortly, if the Lord spares, (and long before my Printer is ready for me,) to re-assume that soul-refreshing service of the sacred word, and of going over the gospel of the ever blessed God; and sure I am, that when I have closed my Concordance, which furnisheth both profit and amusement for my leisure hours, I shall enter on the remaining engagement of the Commentary, with increasing earnestness and delight. In the meantime, I take occasion in this place, to beg an interest in the prayers of the faithful, for those, and indeed all my other poor labours in my honoured Lord's household; commending both myself and them to the Master's blessing. I am well aware that I am proposing to myself great undertakings, with slender means; and marking out much to be done in the remainder of life, when but little of life itself remains to be filled up. Hastening now fast to the boundary of time, as it stands with me, it might be expected from my declining years, that I should rather retire from past labours than commence new ones. But I have long known that if "the pillar of the cloud" go before in the way, it matters not what year we count in the Arithmetic of human life. That sweet promise is sure, it hath never yet failed, "As thy day is, so shall thy strength be." If the Lord's glory be the end proposed, the Lord's grace will furnish means to the accomplishment. And if the Lord be pleased to appoint that I am to finish life, before that I have finished my proposed labours, it will he but to leave that imperfect, which forms a part in all the imperfections of human nature. And surely no man can propose to himself a sweeter close to the whole of his pilgrimage upon earth, than to depart with the Word of God in his hand, and Christ in his heart, the hope of glory. Amen.
The following 52 sermons by John Piper come from an array of topics. We asked ourselves, “If we could get only one sermon posted each week for a year, translated into a particular language, which ones would we do?” Another way to phrase it is, “If we were only able to provide 52 sermons to a particular language group, which ones would we deem essential?”
As we labored over this list, it occurred to us that it might be helpful to English-language readers as well.
I am very thankful to David Mathis Executive Editor of desiringGOD.org for giving permission to make the module.
John Stephen Piper was born January 11, 1946, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, to Bill and Ruth Piper. The Pipers soon moved to Greenville, South Carolina, where John spent his growing-up years. His father was an itinerant evangelist who also ministered through international radio and Bible courses.Education
At Wheaton College (1964-68), John majored in Literature and minored in Philosophy. Studying Romantic Literature with Clyde Kilby stimulated the poetic side of his nature and today he regularly writes poems to celebrate special family occasions and rich, biblical truths. At Wheaton John also met Noël Henry whom he married in 1968.
Following college, he completed a Master of Divinity degree at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California (1968–71). While at Fuller, John discovered the writings of Jonathan Edwards.
John did doctoral work in New Testament Studies at the University of Munich, Munich, West Germany (1971–74). His dissertation, Love Your Enemies, was published by Cambridge University Press and Baker Book House (and is now available through Crossway). Upon completion of his doctorate, he went on to teach Biblical Studies at Bethel College in St. Paul, Minnesota, for six years (1974–80).Bethlehem Baptist Church
In 1980, sensing an irresistible call to preach, John became the senior pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he ministered for 33 years, until 2013. Together with his people, John was dedicated to spreading a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ — a mission he continues now for the wider church through the ministry of desiringGod.org.Present Ministry and Family
John is the author of over 50 books and now frequently travels to speak, and writes regularly, through Desiring God. He also serves as chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary, Minneapolis, Minnesota. John and Noël have four sons, a daughter, and twelve grandchildren.

Please read the Scripture passage carefully and prayerfully and then the notes. Take time to look up the Scripture references given in the notes. They are an integral part of the meditation and the extra time spent will be abundantly recompensed.
These notes originally appeared as "chaque jour les Ecritures" (3rd edition) published by La Bonne Semence, Valence, France. In sending them forth in the English translation we would echo the words of the author: "Never forget that 'All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.' (2 Timothy 3:16, 17). May the Lord grant us in reading His word to experience and progress in these things with Him."
See this as more important than your daily food - it is! Our spiritual lives are far and away more important - and we can completely trust that God will provide our daily needs 'seek ye first the kingdom of God'. How critically important it is to start the day with the Word of God - spiritual food - before the activities and stimuli and influences of the daily routine take over - indeed to provide a spiritual influence to help us to do all those things as to the Lord.
The Bible is a large book which we can never fathom, but it is essential to get all its instruction - to read the 780,000 words in one year would require reading more than 2000 words each day; this programme needs you to read just over 400 words each day (that is about 16 verses each day - less than an average chapter. The commentary is just over 200 words each day). If we only read the New Testament routinely then we limit ourselves to a quarter of what God has told us.
The scheme covers the greater part of the Bible (some genealogical sections and ones of moral embarrassment are omitted by brother Koechlin) with a daily Bible reading and commentary. It will be an aid to all who prayerfully read them to gain an overview of the entire Bible.
Year 1 - Genesis to Joshua. Year 2 - Judges to Esther. Year 3 - Job; Psalms 1 - 41; Proverbs 1 - 15; Isaiah; Matthew; Jeremiah; Lamentations of Jeremiah; Mark. Year 4 - Psalms 42 - 89; Ezekiel; Luke - 2 Corinthians. Year 5 - Psalms 90 - 150; Proverbs 16 - Song of Solomon; Daniel - Malachi; Galatians - Revelation.
The above module earlier imported into the system by Module Robot has incomplete content in it and more over the commentary file is not working in eSword. I have redone the module from the original content. The module was made into both commentary and topic files for your convenient use. Sorry for the trouble caused by the earlier module.
