Does an option exist that would enable me to display and arbitrary number of verses? For example, how would I configure BW to display gen 1:1-3?

thanks, in advance

I type 'p nau' in the command line that would give you the NASBU version and everything in context.

You can also do 'p NAU KJV NIV BGT to get multiple versions

The browse window can toggle between single version and multiple version mode. (The footsteps icon OR View/Toggle Browse Mode).

When in multiple version mode (you can actually have only one version displayed if you want) you can type in a range of verses, like Gen 1:1-3 and it will display them. If you have more than one version displayed, it will show all three verses for all versions.

Is that what you are looking for? If not, post back.

Just type on the command line that exact reference, i.e. --

gen 1:1-3

There are several things that you can do.
clicking on the shoe prints over the browse window will toggle from a display of one verse in as many versions as you choose, to a display of a range of verses in your search version, as many verses as will fit in the window.

I sometimes will have the main window displaying Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, Latin and a formal and dynamic English Translation while in the right hand tab display I will open a browse window to the version in which I want to see the context.

Nice avatar, Skip. Is that new? And how does one get an avatar for these forums?

If you are logged in, click settings upper right menu
Then from list on left select "edit avatar"
I choose the use custom and upload options.
I reduced a graphic that I made for a PowerPoint background I composed to use in a lecture on text, translation, and transmission in my Pentateuch class.

Thanks Skip. Wow, so you teach a Pentateuch class. That's great. Now you've really got my interest. What is your required course text book? Have you ever seen or read any of John Sailhamer, The Pentateuch as Narrative?

For some reason I always wince when somebody asks me if I've read something... because I have a list as long as my arm of books that; 1) I have read enough of them to know I want to do a careful reading; but 2) I have not had time to do so yet.
Sailhamer should be higher on my list. I've read enough to proctor a correspondence course that uses the text, but I am not comfortable with it. I don't critique things though until I have really scoped them out. I really should add him to my list of books for this summer.
Working on Akkadian and Sumerian anthologies in translation right now. Have been putting off learning Akkadian far too long. And every year it is harder to teach the old dog new tricks.

Okay, thanks Skip. Perhaps I should then ask you what text you do use as your major course text book. For my part, I liked Sailhamer's book. I've heard good things about Gary Schnittjer, The Torah Story.

I use 3 books, 2 of which are required for all the OT courses:
R.K.Harrison's intro to the Old Testament is still one of the most comprehensive and detailed intros available. (It is old, but I think he is the absolute starting point for further study.) Dillard and Longman, Intro to the OT is a more modern companion. I use Wolf's Intro to the Pentateuch. But the material I introduce in the classroom setting is always "growing." Those texts are largely supplemental. I have several assignments that force the students to create their own annotated bibliographies. So lecture and research are more influential than the text books.

Thanks Skip. Useful info. I can't say I'm a big Dillard and Longman fan; I'm definitely not. But I like Wolf. (And if I didn't say so earlier, I like Sailhamer.) But I know you can't please all of the people, all of the time. It's great to know you're training up young men and young women in the Word of God. You're labor is not in vain in the Lord. Blessings.
