View Full Version : Interlinear Hebrew-Greek Septuagint?

Hi everybody!

I would like to compare the BHS (or Masoretic text) of the Tanakh with the Greek LXX. Is there a way to set up Bibleworks to function somewhat as an interlinear in that way? For example, I'd like to study the Greek construction used for a given Hebrew construction, etc.

Thanks for any insights or suggestions you might have.

John,

What version of Bible Works are you running?

Starting in vs. 7, there's a program that does an awesome job specifically designed for this, the Tov-Polak Hebrew-Greek parallel bible.

Otherwise, you could set up your own parallel bible from the command line.

Oh! Well, I have been a BBW user since version 3 days, and even though I upgraded to 7, stuck with v6. Recently I called to order v8 (I lost my v7 disks during a move) and have yet to see them come... This is a great feature and really meets my needs. THANK YOU SO MUCH, SC!

Now off to email Bibleworks staff about my recent order...

Shalom chaveri!

... THANK YOU SO MUCH, SC! My pleasure. :)

Shalom chaveri!Cool! My 3rd grade music teacher taught me a "Salom Chaverim" song. I can still sing it and hum it. As Bob Hope (God rest his soul) would say, "Thanks for the memories!" :)
