  1. Is there an Accordance module for the Greek NT that is precisely the same as the Scrivener's edition published by Trinitarian Bible Society? After watching Dr. J's helpful podcast #117 about Display > List Text Differences (http://www.accordancebible.com/forums/topic/15320-117-list-all-and-report-a-correction/), I thought I'd try it with Scrivener's and other GNTs. It seems to me, though, that the GNT-TRS (Greek New Testament - Textus Receptus with Strong's) and the GNT-TR (same w/o Strong's numbers) are really the 1550 Stephanus text. The information box for them (see attached screenshot) at first confused me since it says that the text is Stephanus', but that the diacritical marks were added to conform to the TBS' "The Greek New Testament: The Greek Text Underlying the English Authorised Version of 1611". The text, based on my checks, really is Stephanus', not Scrivener's, and it appears that only the diacritical marks and punctuation conform to the TBS version. So assuming there is no other module for Accordance (and that no one has a user module they could share), maybe I could request Scrivener's as published by TBS here?

  3. When I search for the lex of κύριος, I get this little κύριος-2, in Instant Details and Analytics. Yet there does not appear to be an κύριος-1. Does anyone know how to find κύριος-1 or if not, what the -2 means? Thanks, Kristin

    Could Accordance get access to the Loeb Classical Library? I would love to have these texts in Accordance. What an amazing resource it would be!

    Find that Greek Verse #1

    Read the mystery Greek verse and try to figure out where it comes from. HINT: You will find this somewhere in the Septuagint.

    Gk text is fat and dark

    Seemingly randomly, my Gk text got fatter and darker. It seemed to be connected to updating the OS on my Mac, but I don't know. My normal "find" color is orange (compared to the red default) which also changed. I did not have breaks between the vs, and it does now, but I am mainly concerned about the font change since it is hard to read. I then accidentally opened the LXX in the NT and noticed that my Greek looks normal again, complete with my orange find font color, though both texts are supposedly the same. Is there a way to get my normal NT Greek to look like the LXX how it did a few days ago? Thanks, Kristin
  7. Deep down I know that this request is more technical than I understand, but I will request it anyway. It would really help if the fonts could handle all languages and not be segregated. For example, if I am writing an email, or working in Open Office, or Pages, or anything, and I am writing in English, Greek, and Hebrew, I can easily change the font of the document. I can select all and press Times New Roman, or whatever, it doesn't matter, and whatever I change it to I can still read all my languages. In Accordance, by contrast, my Tools seem to be set to Helvetica Neue, and since I like Times New Roman, I always want to select all and change to MSS, since it looks similar. HOWEVER, if I do that, both my Hebrew and Greek text gets scrambled, and I have to go through and hand select specific words or sentences to have that in one font and the the rest of the document in another font. So it would really help if I could do "select all MSS" and not worry about it scrambling my Hebrew. (On a related note, if anyone knows how to set the default of my Tools to MSS when I write instead of Helvetica Neue, I would appreciate it. I can figure out how to change the default of Notes, but not Tools). Thank you for considering this. Kristin

    Greek construct set up

    Hi everyone, I need some help with a Greek construct. In Greek names obviously usually have articles, but not always. Using Peter as an example, in Mt 26:58 there is an article before his name, even though δὲ is squished between them, while there is not an article before his name in Mt 16:16. I am trying to find all examples like Mt 16:16 for a few names. I have figured out I need to do this with a Greek construct, but I don't know how to set it up as I don't care which case it is, and also, the article is sometimes not immediately before the name in question. Thank you for any help anyone is able to provide. Sincerely, Kristin
  9. I am requesting some upgrades to the audio player for Greek and Hebrew. If I understand correctly, the audio cannot be opened in something like iTunes, and if that is so, I would like to express why I had been trying to do so. In the current Accordance player there is no speed adjustment (as I think several other posts have mentioned). Most of the time this is not an issue just to listen to it, but for the purpose of improving pronunciation, there is no way to do that at normal speed. When I have learned other languages, for example, I take an audio file of a short sentence (similar to a verse), and then I slow it way down to make sure I am saying every syllable correctly. When that is easy, I speed it up just a little, then a little more, until I am able to speak at the pace of a native speaker while saying each sound correctly. Anyone who has learned another spoken language knows the importance of this, just a slight pronunciation issue can completely change the meaning. (I will never, ever, ever forget the time in Germany when I tried to tell someone that, "My boyfriend works nights" (Nacht) but I said "My boyfriend works naked" (nackt), so I learned pronunciation matters. Similar though, you can't just listen to a song (or a verse) slowly and improve your pronunciation. You rather need to say it over, and over, and over, and over until you practically have it memorized simply from saying it so many times. The "repeat one" function is thus critical. In my ideal world I would open the Hebrew audio in iTunes, slow it way, way down, put it on repeat one and have it on in the background while doing something else, such as play with my cat. As it is though, the current audio player in Accordance not only cannot be slowed but the only way to repeat it is to press "play" over and over and over, binding me to the computer as I do. If there is really no way to open it in my native Mac music player, I am requesting the upgrades for the player to function similar to iTunes (or I think how they all pretty much do, I am just familiar with this one). Thank you for considering this, Kristin

    #162 Greek Grammars & Construct Searches

    Podcast #162 is in response to a viewer’s request. (See the Podcasts forum thread, Ideas, I need Ideas!) https://www.accordancebible.com/forums/topic/21989-ideas-i-need-ideas/ It shows how to build a Construct search based on a description of a particular construction in a Greek grammar. In this case, Dr. J shows how to find each of Wallace’s four classes of conditional sentences. Ready for a challenge? The Greek Grammar Searches Workspace features in the podcast is attached for your convenience. Enjoy! Greek Grammar Searches.accord.zip Note: Even if you do not own all the resources included in the workspace, it may still open for you in Accordance 11 and up, but will crash if the Syntax is not installed.
  11. I am surprised that Zerwick's Grammatical Analysis of the Greek New Testament is not available. Anyone else interested in this resource? It's very helpful.

    Brill Greek Dictionary

    I'd love to see the Brill's new Greek Dictionary available on Accordance! http://www.brill.com/products/book/brill-dictionary-ancient-greek
  13. I'd like to put in a request for Accordance to add the Module, "Greek for the Rest of Us: Essentials of Biblical Greek" (2nd Edition) by William D. Mounce. It is an excellent textbook for Greek beginners, especially those learning to use tools like Accordance to study the Greek text of the Scriptures. I present four reasons for this request: 1. This textbook is used in every "Greek Tools for Biblical Interpretation" class at Fuller Theological Seminary. This is a required text in a (for most students) required class. Moreover, Fuller ask all their students to acquire and use Accordance Bible Software, specifically, which is how I came to own this program. 2. Logos has this book available, why shouldn't Accordance? Especially considering that Bill Mounce uses Accordance as his primary Bible software! And the book specifically endorses Accordance! 3. There are many other Mounce resources readily available in Accordance, including more thorough grammars. Why shouldn't this Bible-software-focused, and extremely accessible, introductory textbook be included as an option for students and laypeople who want to use Accordance to go deeper into the biblical languages? I'd also like to request the companion textbook, "Hebrew for the Rest of Us: Using Hebrew Tools Without Mastering Biblical Hebrew" by Lee M. Fields. I already own Greek for the Rest of Us on Kindle, but I would buy it again if it were on Accordance, just for the added value of having it integrated into my bible software.
  14. Hi, Default font for my User notes is Cambria. When I insert a word in Greek, Accordance is changing font for the closing parenthesis to the Greek text font (Cardo), and even if I select it, change to Cambria, it's still Cardo. Can't be changed. Tried to use Cambria for the closing parenthesis later on in the text and delete preceeding text backward to move closing parenthesis back to the Greek word, but even before deleting space between old parenthesis and a new one it changes back to Cardo automatically. P.S. Synced and tried to edit this text in Accordance for iOS. I could change font to Cambria, but Accordance changed it to Accordance font. Tried once more, again — Accordance font remains.

    Add modern Greek audio

    More and more people are switching from Erasmian to modern Greek pronunciation especially since more people are learning Koine outside of the university system where Erasmian is prominent. If you could get Spiros Zodhiates's rendition that would even be better. His is beautiful.
  16. Hi Everyone, I'm trying to figure out how to search for a Greek word by a specific translation. For example lets say I want to find all instances/verses where "δοῦλος" is translated as 'bondservant' I can go with [KEY G1401] <NOT> slave <NOT> servant - but having to exclude the translations I'm not looking for individually is quite annoying plus time consuming, especially for words with lots of meanings. Being able to do - [KEY G1401] <ONLY> bondservant - would be great and extremely easy. Does anyone know if there's a way of doing this?
  17. I'm trying to increase my reading of non-biblical Greek texts while focusing on vocabulary words that appear most frequently across all my Greek texts. My plan is to focus on memorizing just those words that are most frequent across all my texts as I come across them in my reading. Is there a way then to read the Apostolic Fathers (for example) in Greek with words highlighted that appear most frequently across all my Greek texts? How would I go about doing this? Also, is there a way to search for frequency based on percentage and not just "count?"

    Searching GNT in LXX

    Hello all, this is likely a very easy thing to do within Accordance, but I don't know the process. I was wondering if you could point me to a tutorial or tell me about a module that make the process of finding the GNT words in the LXX fairly straight forward. I am still in beginning Greek and don't always recognize the roots, but I am learning—until then I would like to be able to easily search for the words (I understand they don't always overlap). My apologies, if I am asking in the wrong forum. j
  19. In UBS5 Greek NT (Sigla), there seems to be a spelling mistake in the mouse-over to the Greek word μήποτε. The English word in brackets looks like it should be "purpose", not "purpos". (Unless, it's an intentional abbreviation.) 1. Open UBS5 Greek NT (Sigla). 2. Search for Matt. 13:15. 3. Mouse-over "μήποτε".
  20. Philemon 5 is well known for its difficulty. Along with many other commentaries on Philemon, I have Colossians & Philemon by David W. Pao (2012) in https://www.accordancebible.com/product/zondervan-exegetical-commentary-on-the-new-testament-11-volumes/. I'll let Pao explain it: One thing Pao did not mention is the accusative singular feminine pronoun ἣν functioning as a relative pronoun (in English as "which" or "that"). Seems to me that if it is improper and / or unattested in the NT that such a singular pronoun have a plural antecedent, then that's another solid argument in favor of chiasmus here. I'm still trying to clarify the arguments and evidence. So, my question is this: Is there some way to search the GNT for any instances where a singular relative pronoun might have a plural antecedent? (A search of any GNT is a help, but I'd prefer searching the Accordance TR (I guess it's a version of Stephanus' TR) until such time as Accordance gets Scrivener's TR.) Thank you!
  21. In these days I am occupied with the Septuagint - and there the desire grew in me to have the "Septuagint German" (LXX-D) in Accordance: https://www.academic-bible.com/en/bible-society-and-biblical-studies/scholarly-editions/septuagint/septuaginta-deutsch/ https://www.die-bibel.de/shop/septuaginta-deutsch-5122 https://www.logos.com/product/166659/septuaginta-deutsch
  22. Are there any plans to possibly get Dictionary of Latin and Greek Theological Terms on Accordance? http://bakerpublishinggroup.com/books/dictionary-of-latin-and-greek-theological-terms-2nd-edition/144703

    GNT Audio Adjustments

    I recently purchased the Greek New Testament Audio by John Schwandt and really enjoy it so far! The only thing is that it would be nice to be able to adjust the speed of the audio - even with basic speed adjustments.
  24. Would you please consider adding A Patristic Greek Lexicon by G.W.H. Lampe (from B.C. 146 to A.D. 1100) as a tagged option to purchase? Also looking for Abbott-Smith's lexicon, which is available in Logos; it has LXX references and associated Hebrew word.

    Text of the Book of Enoch?

    Hello, does anyone know a digital version of 1Enoch in the internet in Greek and/or German that I can import as user bible in Accordance? (I know this module: https://www.accordancebible.com/store/details/?pid=PSEUD-TBut I invested some money in Accordance in the last days and I only need 1Enoch at the moment ;-) And another question: Is there a cross reference tool in Accordance that shows links between the New Testament and apocrypha/pseudepigrapha? E.g.: Jude 14–15 -> 1 Enoch 1:9 Thanks! Johannes
