  1. Hello I would like suggest Baylor Handbook on the Hebrew Bible as a module for Accordance. See http://www.baylorpress.com/en/Series/5/Baylor%20Handbook%20on%20the%20Hebrew%20Bible /Stefan Green
  2. Title: The Hebrew Bible: A Translation and Commentary by Robert Alter Publisher: W.W. Norton & Company, Inc. Reason: A translation of the Old Testament that follows principles such as these (see below) that challenges modern-day translations can give wonderful insights for Biblical Scholars and translators alike. As a student of the Old Testament, I enjoy reading his translation and comments because I feel that the translation treats me, the reader, as a "mature" reader of the Bible. All in all, I believe this resource can be enjoyed by scholars and readers of the Bible that want a different "flavor" to the text. Robert Alter's Ten Commandments for Bible Translators: 1. Thou shalt not make translation an explanation of the original, for the Hebrew writer abhorreth all explanation. 2. Thou shalt not mangle the eloquent syntax of the original by seeking to modernize it. 3. Though shalt not shamefully mingle linguistic registers. 4. Thou shalt not multiply for thyself synonyms where the Hebrew wisely and pointedly uses repeated terms. 5. Thou shalt not replace the expressive simplicity of the Hebrew prose with purportedly elegant language. 6. Thou shalt not betray the fine compactness of biblical poetry. 7. Thou shalt not make the Bible sound as though it were written just yesterday, for this, too, is an abomination. 8. Thou shalt diligently seek English counterparts for the word-play and sound-play of the Hebrew. 9. Thou shalt show to readers the liveliness and subtlety of the dialogues. 10. Thou shalt continually set before thee the precision and purposefulness of the word-choices in Hebrew.

    Would anyone else be interested in having the Forms of the Old Testament Literature commentary series on Accordance?
  4. I was wondering if you had any plans to provide Everett Fox’s, “The Early Prophets,” as part of the Schocken Bible series (you already have Volume 1, The Five Books of Moses). I was also wondering if you were going to add Robert Alter’s magisterial work, “The Hebrew Bible: A Translation with Commentary. Both of these texts, together with the their commentaries would be a phenomenal addition to the Accordance suite.
  5. I am writing to see if it would be possible to add into the Ethiopic (Ge’ez) Old Testament (Untagged) module the additional books that Ran HaCohen now has digitized on his website (https://www.tau.ac.il/~hacohen/Biblia.html). The Accordance module currently has "Genesis-Ruth, 1 & 2 Samuel, and Psalms". In addition to these works, Ran also has: 1 & 2 Kings, Ecclesiastes, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Haggai, Malachi, Wisdom of Solomon, 4th Baruch, and Enoch. Adding these in an update would be of great value! I hope that you will consider this, thank you!
  6. If any of my brothers and sisters in Christ can help me with these statistics, I’d greatly appreciate it. My two questions are What is the approximate number of individual lexemes in Codex Ambrosianus/Old Testament Peshitta? (including the deuterocanonical books) What is the approximate number of individual lexemes in Codex Ambrosianus/Old Testament Peshitta, if only the books that are in both the Codex Ambrosianus and the KJV Bible are looked at? This well be more of an “apples to apples” comparison if only the books in the KJV Hebrew bible canon are looked at. Can you please quote your source on if you used Accordance to find these statistics yourself or if you found them via another source? I have often read/heard that Hebrew and Aramaic are very similar. I’m trying to find out just how similar these are in regards to the OT. The number I normally see for the number of individual lexemes in the Hebrew Old Testament is 8,679. I’m trying to statistically compare this with the Aramaic Old Testament. Thank you for your help, Brian P.S. I am not a scholar. I have close to a basic understanding of Aramaic. I am just starting Hebrew. So please no answers that are to technical. Although, I can look definitions up if I need to. An approximate number is fine.
  7. I just recently bought the AB and NICOT/NICNT series on Accordance. What great sales for awesome commentaries! And they are wonderful! These other series might have been requested already, but I would love to see the International Critical Commentary and the Forms of the Old Testament Literature series on here as well.

    The First Testament

    Would it be possible to have The First Testament by John Goldingay added to the Accordance modules?

    Public Domain Titles

    How difficult would it be to create a tagged version of a public domain work? I am thinking in terms of Feild's Hexapla. What would be the process to start doing something like that for Accordance?

    When God Spoke Greek- Timothy Law

    Hello, I would like to suggest When God Spoke Greek: The Septuagint and the Making of the Christian Bible, By Timothy Michael Law, Oxford, 2013. It is a great read through on the Septuagint and some of the history behind it. While I do not agree with everything he says, I just figured with the recent push for LXX research, this might be a good title to consider. https://www.amazon.com/When-God-Spoke-Greek-Septuagint/dp/0199781729/ref=pd_rhf_dp_s_cp_0_29?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=0199781729&pd_rd_r=b76fce75-ff66-4b9d-a2ac-a13bfb147ff0&pd_rd_w=mcUrw&pd_rd_wg=01yi0&psc=1&refRID=XVF0VNW29Z77Z0NJ5T1N
  11. 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

    Peshitta Old Testament

    It would be nice to have the option of viewing the Peshitta Old Testament with standard Hebrew fonts, in the same manner as the New Testament. It shouldn't be a big deal--just do a search and replace for 22 Unicode characters (perhaps a few more than 22, given the vowels). Not only would this make the Peshitta version more accessible, but it would facilitate comparing the texts of the Masoretic versus Peshitta traditions.
  13. Hello, I am trying to find Allusions to a specific text from the Old Testament in Second temple literature. I tried minimizing the range to a specific Book - Jeremiah - and then opening a New pane with the module such as Qumran and then entering an Infer command. But something doesn't work well. How do I do if I just want to find the Allusions to some chapters from the book of Jeremiah and not for all of it? Thank you
  14. I've been searching for some Old Testament Commentaries by Walter Brueggeman, whom I've heard to be one of the most renown Protestant Old Testament Scholars. Is there any interest in Accordance to digitalise some of his Commentaries on Genesis, Exodus or the Prophets? With Kind Regards Riki
  15. Thank you for New Testament for Everyone set by N.T. Wright! It would be nice to have complementary «The Old Testament for Everyone» complete seventeen-volume set by John Goldingay. :-) https://www.wjkbooks.com/Products/0664261760/the-old-testament-for-everyone-set.aspx
  16. I am trying to compare the vocabulary of three different texts: HMT-W4 (Isaiah) DHNT (John's Epistles) Qumran (1QS) I am able to generate lists for each individual book, and I am able to generate a list of vocabulary common to Isaiah and John, Isaiah and 1QS, but not John and 1QS. I also noticed that I can compare DHNT with HMT-W4 but must use the HITS=Inflected command to compare HMT-W4 with DHNT. (I'm not sure why.) I need to compare DHNT with Qumran but I get the same error. When I use HITS=Inflected I only get a small list of words, 24 and most of those were particles. I don't think that is accurate. The problem seems to be that it is searching only for inflected forms, not lemmas. What do I need to do to compare Qumran with DHNT? If that works, then how can I compare the results of my comparisons with each other so I can generate a comparison table: In 1QS and Isaiah but not John In 1QS and John but not Isaiah In 1QS, John, and Isaiah I appreciate any help you can give me so I can finish my research paper. Thanks. Below is a log of my actions: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DHNT window use [HITS HMT-W4] OK. HMT-W4 window use [HITS DHNT] doesn't work. I get a dialog box: "The window "HMT-W4" and the Search window in the selected [HITS] command, must both have search texts with grammatical tags (unless [HITS=Inflicted] is used.)" Used [HITS=Inflected] and it worded. Returned same result as DNHT HITS HMT-W4. Used [HITS=Inflected DHNT] and it found no verses. I get a dialog box: "There are no verses in the current range of the "QUMRAN" text, which fit the current search entry." All Qumran compared to All NT: Used Qumran window [HITS=Inflected DHNT] returns only 24 words in common, most of them particles. The problem seems to be that it is searching only for inflected forms, not lemmas. Used DHNT window [HITS Qumran] and didn't work I get a dialog box: "The HITS word list cannot include any character expression (a character immediately following ".")
