    Default Regarding bible versions copyright

    Hi,

    I'm trying to create bible study website for Romania.
    In this order, I wanted to ask here for permission to copy the hebrew and greek bible versions.

    Thank you in advance,

    Bible version copyrights are held by the people who publish the specific versions and are not held by BibleWorks. So you are asking the wrong people. If you publish the BGT text, you need to receive permission from the German Bible Society, NOT BibleWorks. In any of the versions, go to the tab "Version Info" to see who the proper copyright holders are for each database.

    Default Another option for Greek & Hebrew

    Another option would be to find them where they already exist on the web, and link to them. Here's some examples:

    Hebrew/LXX side-by-side

    BHS in parallel with another choice


    NT with some text critical helps
