Are these Books within Bible Works anywhere?

There are so many things to search I'm unsure. I have the fragments of the books from the Dead Sea Module, but am looking for these books in whole within Bible Works. In Hebrew if possible.

Anyone?

Yes, there are just fragments of these in Hebrew in the Dead Sea Scrolls module, which you purchased. At the present there is no complete Hebrew text of them. The English of these books, however, is available as a user add-on "Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament" (or POT). Go to the sticky thread at the top of the forum and follow it to find where you can download the files in order to compile them for yourself in the BW Version Database Compiler.

The versions that are available in English were both based on Ethiopic versions of Enoch and Jubilees. There is no full extant version of these texts in Hebrew (to the best of my knowledge).

It would be interesting to have them in Ethiopic then as morphology. Thanks for the help guys.

Installation instructions:

1. Copy the following files into \BibleWorks 6\userdb
POT.ddf
POT.txt

2. Copy the following file into \BibleWorks 6\databases
POT.bww

3. Use the text found in POTBOOKNAMES.txt to supplement your already existing bookname files by opening up the appropriate book name file with notepad and then saving it. (Book Names files have the extension *.bna, and are found in your \BibleWorks 6\init folder.)

4. Open POT.ddf with the Version Database Compiler and compile.


Ok I got all of them except #4, I've never used the Database Compiler, where is that found? Within Bibleworks or seperate exe?

Thanks

Excellent - It's compiled now.

Only one last question, where do I find the file to read now? Sorry for all the bugging :)

The three letter name is POT. Type that in the command line, it will become your search version, and you should be good to go. It will act like any other English text.

Yeah I missed a compile step I guess - was supposed to check box the "install after compile" I guess. I've never used this so it was a first go.

Perhaps someone should update exact details into that sticky list for new users of this feature?

Thanks Again
