If you could choose one Bible translation that's not currently available in Accordance, which one would you pick?

Only 1...

 

Then LXX.D zweite Auflage with Commentaries/Notes

 

As second a German Bible with Strong's or GK/GKE tagging. There are some old once, but the newest until the Leonberger with GK/E is finished the Elberfelder CSV with Strong's. 

 

 

But honestly Accordance should really invest more in Bible translations. So many languages are not present in the Store. Dutch, Danish, Slovak, Estonian, Lithuanian, Czech, Turkish, Bulgarian, Serbian... The list is nearly endless and I don't talk about of a minor language in the Amazon rain forest. 


If you could choose one Bible translation that's not currently available in Accordance, which one would you pick? 

But why only one? Are the human resources in Accordance so limited?

 

Once I got an answer like this: We are in good relationship with Biblica. As I asked to bring more Bibles from Biblica. I asked for the Hoffnung für Alle. But why I don't see any fruits if there is a good relationship?

 

I guess the Bibles from Biblica are all in the same form. So an import script to Accordance would bring a lot Bibles to Accordance without a huge amount of work for every Bible. 

The same for the Bibles in USFX, USFM/USX and OSIS source format.

If I had to choose one could I choose six ? Origen's Hexapla ? I realize it's not complete these days but it would be interesting.

 

But something complete, I would be interested in Richmond Lattimore's translation of the NT.

 

Thx

I would love to see the Portuguese Nova Almeida Atualizada (2017). But, I am sure the market for Portuguese versions is very small and so I don't fault Accordance for not making this a priority.

 

A more realistic wish would be CBGM's Editio Critica Maior 

 

Thanks!

[Yeah, I know, you specified "one" version... sorry]

Its been requested before (and i know you already sort of have it in their commentaries) but for English it would be nice to have as a stand alone text

 

The Bible for Everyone by John Goldingay & Tom Wright
 
 
but not sure whats behind the question, and we certainly have loads of english translations and i agree that other languages should take priority.

My first thought was Goldingay / Wright, but UK Fraser beat me to it.  The more I read their work, the more I appreciate their biblical perspective.  A stand alone module would give me immediate chapter and verse location and better parallel comparison.

BibleWorks used to have these Portuguese versions included in their base program:

Portuguese
  • Almeida Revista e Atualizada, 1993
  • Almeida Revista e Corrigida, 1969
  • Almeida Biblia, 1994
  • Corrigida Fiel, 1753/1995
  • Interconfessional Translation (RCS), 2009
  • King James Atualizada
  • Modern Language Translation, 2005

Personally I'm good, but from the options suggested above I would agree with choosing Robert Alter’s translation of the Hebrew Bible.

 

A close second would be the Bible in Cockney.

If you mean a Bible module, I would ask for Sinaiticus, the whole as one text. Yeah, I know that is not what you asked about. But I dearly wish that the uncial manuscripts were in Accordance with all their contents (OT, NT, apocrypha, or whatever).

I don't think Origen's Hexapla in toto is available -- isn't most of it lost?

Yes alas.

 

Regarding Sinaiticus, I posted a full text User Bible to the exchange a few years ago. It doesn't have every corrector in it. I cannot remember which hand I picked but anyhow, it covers all the text.

 

Thx

I would prefer a tagged German Bible than an additional translation.

It is a translation so still in bounds :)

A true Accordance expansion would involve adding a Bible in a new language for Accordance. Why not Persian? There is a highly regarded five-year-old translation called the Persian New Millennium Version. Here is an article about its introduction. YouVersion has a digital edition from Elam Ministries.

USFM import, so we can bring in many kinds of Bibles!
