  1. I’m trying to produce Hebrew vocabulary lists for specific chapters. I’d like to include the following: -Hebrew word -English gloss -word count (for whole Bible) The problem is the word count in the Analysis Analytic is the word count for the selected range, not the whole Bible. E.g. if my chapter is Jer 4, word count = the number of times that word occurs in Jer 4. Is there a way to produce a vocabulary list for a particular chapter (or range of verses) with a word count that reflects the number of times the word occurs in the whole Hebrew Bible rather than just that particular range?
  2. I would like to be able to change the default fonts for Greek and Hebrew texts in Accordance. I have heard from someone at Accordance who says that this is difficult to do technically because it means switching to Unicode. However, technical issues aside, from the users perspective it is really very strange that the Hebrew and Greek fonts are not customisable. I had imagined this would be in the basic feature set for electronic Bible software. And there are a plethora of options for customising the font for English texts. On a personal level I really like the SBL fonts that can be found here: https://www.sbl-site.org/educational/biblicalfonts.aspx Would others appreciate being able to switch the default Greek and Hebrew typefaces? Thanks, Andy
  3. If I want to find out how a Hebrew word has been translated into Greek (LXX), how would I go about setting up a construct to do that?

    Audio on iOS

    Hello, When I play an audio Bible, I have to have Accordance open all the time. But normally and in other apps, the audio continues to be played when the app is closed — very convenient during sports and driving. So here are my two cents for a future update: allow the audio to continue playing with the app closed. God bless, Manuel
  5. Hi Everyone, So I have the Hebrew Audio—OT, and I love listening to it on my iPhone. It is very entertaining, as well as helpful for memorizing passages. However, there is a significant problem with listening on iOS while on the go. If I were listening to music/Apple music/Pandora or even Netflix, I can put my phone in my pocket, and turn the screen off (which happens automatically after a certain amount of time) and the audio continues; I can listen while I walk. But with the Hebrew Audio, as soon as the screen locks after a couple of minutes, the audio cuts out, making it necessary to stop and unlock the phone every few minutes. It is thus practically impossible to listen to the Hebrew Bible unless one is stationary and constantly manipulating the screen. Can this be changed? This change would make listening to the Hebrew Audio modules much more practicable. As a student of Hebrew Bible, this is very important aid and tool for me. Thanks, David

    Greek/Hebrew parsing trainer

    Hi. I have an idea I think would be popular amongst the Acordance community! That is a parisng trainer to the original languages. Yes, Accordance is a helpful tool in such a way that morphological knowledge is less important than it was for 20-30 years ago. Still I think I seriuos students of Greek and Hebrew wil give this feature a warm welcome! Keep up the good work, you are wonderful.
  7. Friends, I am interested in using the concordance feature with two Hebrew terms at a time, not just one. To be more specific, I want to see how many times נָתַן and לֵב occur together in a verse throughout the entire OT. They can be separated by several words, but need to be in the same verse. The vowels are not entirely important and just the root of the word can be used as a search query. I can sort through the relevant entries on my own. 2 Chron 9:23 would be an example of what I am looking for because it contains both נָתַן and לֵב. If you have any advice on how to do this in Accordance 12 Greek/Hebrew Discoverer for Mac, please let me know. Heather

    Verb Alternations

    Hi all, I am new to Accordance, and I am hoping to use it on a search I would like to perform on the Biblical Hebrew syntax database. I am trying to find all of the verbs that have "argument alternations". Here is an example from English: "Jim is eating" "Jim is eating apples" Essentially, I need to specify something like the following: all verbs with an optional complement. Does anyone know the best way to do this? What would be ideal for my purposes is if Accordance could spit me out a list of roots with these alternations. That seems like a lot to ask for, but it would be nice if it could be done. It would also be great to find all verbs that alternate between prepositions in their complements, e.g. האמין ב\ל, and all verbs that alternate between one and two objects. I don't know how this would be done, since it seems like all of these would simply be labelled "complement". Finally, I guess this is a question for Robert Holmstedt, but does anyone know the method for distinguishing between complements and adjuncts? I know this is a debatable topic in general linguistics, but I am just wondering why, for example, בגוים is treated as a complement rather than an adjunct in Psalm 110:6 when every other occurrence of דין has a DO marked with את (or unmarked). In English, you can see the difference in "He will judge the nations" vs. "?He will judge among the nations" (latter sentence sounds funny in English, but you get the point). Sorry for all the questions, and thanks in advance for the help! Kevin

    Hebrew audio OT verse module

    For several books that I have tried (Lam, Dan, Esther), clicking the audio for the individual verses (Hebrew Audio OT verses module) does not initiate playing, but yields the system “error” sound. I seem to recall seeing this on the forums before, but cannot find it. Accordance for Mac 12.1.5 [Mac OS X 10.13.1 Mid 2013 11 inch MacBook Air]
  10. Ok, I've watched two hours of video so far and I still can't work out why: (בית,בין,סכת,סֻכַּ֥ת) <WITHIN 3 Words> (דוד,=דוך) Does not return Amos 9:11, which contains: אֶת־סֻכַּ֥ת דָּוִ֖יד I wonder if anyone can clarify? Notes: that the search query above is inverted when I paste it into this forum. In accordance the "dvd" part is last. I can't work out how to add the yod into דוך. When I do it gets upset and seems to want vowel pointing, (It gives me a pick box)
  11. Hey there! I was wondering if there is a way to count Hebrew words, with "word" being defined as a graphic unit that has a space on either side of it. The function for counting Hebrew "words" * <AND> [RANGE Hebrew text] actually counts morphemes: grammatical units of meaning smaller than words (although the counting excludes pronominal suffixes, for some reason). Is there also a way that you can count Hebrew words (graphic units)? Thanks for your help! All the best, Megan.
  12. Does anyone know if it's possible to generate a vocab list from a passage that provides glosses for each different stem, rather than just a single gloss for the root? For example, if a passage contains a root in both the Qal and the Piel, is it possible to have a separate vocab item for each, with a gloss that reflects the different stems?
  13. I'm having an issue typing Hebrew words in my user notes. No matter what I do, it comes out back-to-front (i.e. left-to-right, rather than right-to-left). In reference to a similar discussion (https://www.accordancebible.com/forums/topic/19346-hebrew-in-user-notes-for-windows/), I've tried: - Selecting the Hebrew keyboard using the drop-down button in User Notes. - Using a Hebrew specific font (I'm using Ezra SIL and SBL Hebrew). - Changing the keyboard input to a Hebrew keyboard (this one: http://www.tyndale.cam.ac.uk/unicode). Yet have no success. Any advice? P.s., I type in Hebrew in Word for Mac all the time without any issues.
  14. When you open the Hebrew audio on iPad, the button to make split screen disappears, is this a bug? Am I just misunderstanding how to use it. I'd like to open the Hebrew underneath.
  15. I am considering purchasing this. I wonder, how does it actually work. It would probably be useful for me if it would allow me to read out individual verses (i.e. shortcut key to read out the verse I am in, i.e. I could sit there and press (P)lay a few times to get the Hebrew in my head) and perhaps less importantly, but also useful, can it play a whole chapter at a time? Thanks!
  16. When I search for all words in a passage using *, I can get a list of all words in that passage. In greek there is no issue, however I have just tried it in Hebrew, and it produces a word list where some words have the vowels and some words don't. Is there a way around this? If not, does anyone know another way to build this type of word list, apart from manually of course. Thanks!
  17. Rejoice! The latest updates for Apple's Keynote and Pages include better handling of RTL languages. The announcement specifically mentions Hebrew and Arabic. I haven't yet tried them out, but thought I'd let everyone know.
  18. If you're like me, you like to stay fresh on the original languages, but don't want to "cheat" by using an interlinear or reader's Bible with all the vocabulary words occurring less than 100x in the footnotes. [i'm not sure if what I'm suggesting is in another post, or if I took concepts and applied them for my own use, so if anyone has already posted on this, please let me know.] There's an easy way to do this in Accordance in order to facilitate reading and yet quickly identify those words you probably don't know. 1.) Open up your Greek or Hebrew text. 2.) In the Search drop-down menu, click on Enter Command > COUNT 3.) Enter the number of words you are comfortable with not knowing. For example, if you have learned all the words of the GNT occurring 30x or more, enter 1-30 in the command. http://www.drewdbrown.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Screen-Shot-2014-11-11-at-11.10.27-AM.png 4.) Accordance now returns all those words occurring 30x or less in the GNT. 5.) Click on the Highlights button. Make a new highlight color and call it Greek Vocab. http://www.drewdbrown.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Screen-Shot-2014-11-11-at-11.17.28-AM.png 6.) Shift-Click on the new color, and voila - Accordance will highlight all of the Greek Vocabulary words you don't know. http://www.drewdbrown.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Screen-Shot-2014-11-11-at-11.25.16-AM.png 7.) When reading the text, you can now instantly see what words you do and don't know. This encourages a regular reading of the text because 1) You aren't overwhelmed with tons of new vocab (esp. in Hebrew Bible!) and 2) You can be encouraged because you actually know more words than you think. This will help you identify new forms of words you already know. 8.) Repeat for Hebrew, Aramaic, etc. Yeah Accordance! Yeah science!

    Hebrew versification

    Is it possible to display the Hebrew versification within an English language text, without having to open the corresponding Hebrew text? Is would be great to see, e.g. Isaiah 9:6 [5], and likewise when in the Hebrew text, to see Isaiah 9:5 [6] to indicate the differences.
  20. Hi, Aas the title describes, I am wanting to generate a list of Hebrew verbs which INCLUDE the pronominal suffixe and waw-consecutive. I want this list to be restricted only to the range of Jonah 1-4 and include full parsing (including suffix). How is this done? I have learned how to create a basic Hebrew verb list with parsing, etc. but noted that the suffix and waw-consec are all removed. suggestions (or better: command line examples)? Thanks, Jason
  21. Does Accordance have resources that allows you to view greek and hebrew manuscripts? If so what are they? If not, is it possible to find such things online? Thanks!
  22. Hello everyone, I am trying to find all of the attestations of hollow verbs in the D stem (Polel). I am separating the roots that only occur once in the Polel from those that occur more than once, and charting each group separately. But Accordance seems to be giving me conflicting information. I have done a search for verbs in the Polel, and on my bar graph I learn that, for example, the roots נוב ,נופ, and נוס occur once in this form, and a search for each of these roots in the Polel form shows only one hit. So all should be well. However, the concordance clearly shows that these roots occur in the Polel more than once. And a search for the verse references in the concordance bears this out. I fully admit that I am not an expert at Accordance searching. I going about my searching incorrectly? If so, how can I ensure that I am searching correctly in order to receive the correct data (If my default analytics did not show the concordance, I would have done a lot of work before realizing that I had made a mistake). If not, can someone please tell me why Accordance is giving these conflicting data. Thanks! David
  23. Hello, I'm attempting some searches in BHS for a class I'm teaching. Basically, I'd like to create something like a Reader's Lexicon for Amos...but a Reader's Lexicon that adapts to what I've already learned. In the first window, I type [COUNT 1-100] [RANGE Amos 1]. Perfect...it gives me all the words I'm wanting. However, now I want to know all of the words that occur 1-100 times in Amos 2, but I want it to exclude all the words that showed up from Amos 1. Basically, I'm trying to eliminate repeat vocabulary words so that each new search only returns words not yet encountered in Amos. I've tried variations on the Count, Range, Link and Hits commands...but no luck. Anyone have an idea how this might work...or if it is even possible? Thanks in advance! ~ Jon

    Amplify on iPad.

    Is there a way to change which dictionary instant details amplifies to for a greek/hebrew word? Or just a way to choose what resource to amplify to instead of some preset one?
  25. I need to find all instances in the Hebrew Bible of spirantized BGDKPT letters (without dagesh) immediately following a shwa, for example: מַלְכֵי (Gen 17:16). However, a few caveats: 1. The consonant over the shwa can't have a dagesh. Example: הַצְּבֹעִים (FirstSam 13:18) shouldn't show up. 2. The consonant over the shwa can't be the first letter in the word. Example: גְּבוּל (Gen 10:19) shouldn't show up. 3. The above restriction also applies across morphological boundaries! Example: בִּנְפֹל (Isa 30:25) should show up, since the nun is the first letter of the lexeme but not of the entire word unit. Essentially, I'd like to find examples of these spirantized BGDKPT consonants in places where—according to the simplified Hebrew grammar rules we often give students—they shouldn't exit, i.e. after closed syllables. I've tried multiple ways of doing this but always run into problems. I haven't even been able to do it for a single BGDKPT letter yet! So here's some of what I've tried, with כ as an example: Problems: - Doesn't satisfy #1 above. - Doesn't satisfy #2 above either. Example: Still shows בְּכֹרוֹ (Gen 10:15). - Doesn't satisfy #3 above. - Missing some examples like מַלְכֵי (Gen 17:16). - Satisfied #2 above Problems: - Doesn't satisfy #1 above. - Doesn't satisfy #3 above. - Missing some examples like מַלְכֵי (Gen 17:16). - Related to #3, it's missing cases where the consonant with the shwa is the first letter of the lexeme, but not of the word unit. For example: בִּנְפֹל (Isa 30:25). - Satisfied #1 above but no longer satisfies no #2 because I can't figure out how to combine these two search queries. Problems: - Doesn't satisfy #2 above. - Doesn't satisfy #3 above. - Missing some examples like מַלְכֵי (Gen 17:16). - Related to #3, it's missing cases where the consonant with the shwa is the first letter of the lexeme, but not of the word unit. For example: בִּנְפֹל (Isa 30:25). After trying other dead ends, I eventually realized that the only way to adequately solve #3 above is to use literal search (now called "letters" in Accordance 12?). Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like I can use wildcards in a literal search? Please correct me if I'm wrong about this, I would love to be wrong. Really, any help would be very much appreciated!! I hope this makes clear what I'm trying to accomplish, but if not I can try to clarify further. ********* Edit: I've now figured out the following, which is the best I've gotten yet. Here's the breakdown of how I figure it works: Part 1: Finds any כ preceded by a shwa. Part 2: Removes any כ that has a dagesh in it, preceded by a shwa. Part 3: Removes any instances where the letter with the shwa is the first letter of the inflected form but does not have a dagesh. Part 4: Removes any instances where the letter with the shwa has a dagesh. This arrangement allows me to solve #1 and #2 above, while also finding words such as מַלְכֵי (Gen 17:16). However, I'm still left with the problem of #3 above—morphological boundaries. For example, בִּנְפֹל (Isa 30:25) still does not show up.
