The standard Bibleworks program (if you could call the program 'standard :)) does not contain the Dutch NBV translation, which is the latest translation of the bible in Dutch.
I have found a NBV compatible txt file on the internet, and i placed it on my personal webserver at
It should be possible to put this txt file in Bibleworks with the special database compiler option, but I cannot find how this exactly should be done...
Each time I try to compile, the module says: empty verses...
and nothing happens.
Can anybody please download my nbv.txt file and help me out in describing exactly what i should do in Bibleworks 7 to get the file to work?
Rene van der Velde
With your instructions, everything worked out well! Thank you very much.
Since the translation that i have now in my Bibleworks is the most recent translation in our language, i am very happy to have this one as addition.
Thanks to you Rene and Pasquale, I too succeeded in inserting the NBV into BW. For me it is a nice Christmas present. I'm very grateful to you for this.
rene, visiting your site there is no answer.
can you mail me de nbv.txt file?
thanks in advance. frans wiersma
and please can you sent me your nbv.txt file also?
thanks a lot!
Hi, as I am new to this forum (and to Bibleworks 7.0) I am curious to know where I can find the nbv text. Did anyone succeed in making this nbv translation work in Bibleworks? If so, that would be really great!!! I hope anybody would like to give me some instructions so I can work with this translation as well! Many thanks in advance!
Anyone who would like to find the nbv.txt file need to look at: http://koffiezetter.googlevrienden.nl/?loc=1:25 (in Dutch).

The other link to the coffee machine (http://koffiezetter.googlevrienden.nl/?loc=1:25) is also not available.
Can you help?

Could anyone send the NBV.txt file to me please? email@example.com
