I am ploughing through 1 Corinthians 7 in the NET Bible, in preparation for preaching on Sunday. In the notes for verse 5 I have come across a couple of those oblong boxes you get when a character is not displayed correctly. Anyone remember those from some displays of


Is this a BibleWorks 6 with all the latest updates fault, or is there something wrong on my beastie?

NET Notes (1Co 7:5)

5 tc Most later witnesses (2 sy) add "fasting and" (th/| nhstei,a| kai,, te nesteia kai) before "prayer." But such an addition is motivated by ascetic concerns; further, its lack in 11vid,46 * A B C D F G P Y 33 1739 1881 2464 al latt co argues decisively against its authenticity.

Hi, David,

I'd suggest deleting your bw*.ttf fonts from your fonts folder and reinstalling them from the BibleWorks 6\ folder.

That will probably fix it.

Now I'm even more confused
Isn't the character before the 2 one of those funny markers, when a character isn't represented properly, or is it meant to look like that?

Hi, Dave,

The character before the 2 is the Hebrew letter Aleph, which in NT textual criticism stands for the manuscript called Sinaiticus. The next funky letter is a Gothic M which is the sigla for the majority of the Byzantine NT manuscripts. The fancy P later on is the sigla for papyri.

Hope that helps some.

G'day Phil
So I do have a problem!
I assumed that you were seeing what I was seeing! Dumb, aren't I?

Must try your install thing!

... as we musicians say!

Thanks, Phil!
I wonder how that happened!
