    Default Verse Map for GRT version (Greek Bible Transliterated)

    Some time back Jim Darlack made the GRT available (see BibleWorks Blog). A major boon for which I, who can recognize a few letters in the Greek alphabet, am properly grateful.

    To make it more useful for the LXX, especially those books, like Tobit, where Rahlfs supplies an alternate text, you can copy the verse map file (in Program Files\BibleWorks 8\databases) from bgt.vmf to grt.vmf

    The result in the browse window: (this is indicative, the font Darlack used of course got mucked up in copying)

    NRS Tobit 14:11 So now, my children, see what almsgiving accomplishes, and what injustice does -- it brings death! But now my breath fails me." Then they laid him on his bed, and he died; and he received an honorable funeral.

    GRT Tobit 14:11 kai nyn paidia idete ti ele¢mosyn¢ poiei kai ti dikaiosyn¢ rhyetai kai tauta autou legontos exelipen autou h¢ psych¢ epi t¢s klin¢s ¢n de etœn hekaton pent¢konta oktœ kai ethapsen auton endoxœs
    GRT Tobit (S) 14:11 kai nyn paidia idete ti poiei ele¢mosyn¢ kai ti poiei adikia hoti apoktennei kai idou h¢ psych¢ mou ekleipei kai eth¢kan auton epi t¢n klin¢n kai apethanen kai etaph¢ endoxœs

    LXT Tobit 14:11 καὶ νῦν παιδία ἴδετε τί ἐλεημοσύνη ποιεῖ καὶ τί δικαιοσύνη ῥύεται καὶ ταῦτα αὐτοῦ λέγοντος ἐξέλιπεν αὐτοῦ ἡ ψυχὴ ἐπὶ τῆς κλίνης ἦν δὲ ἐτῶν ἑκατὸν πεντήκοντα ὀκτώ καὶ ἔθαψεν αὐτὸν ἐνδόξως
    --- Tobit (S) 14:11 καὶ νῦν παιδία ἴδετε τί ποιεῖ ἐλεημοσύνη καὶ τί ποιεῖ ἀδικία ὅτι ἀποκτέννει καὶ ἰδοὺ ἡ ψυχή μου ἐκλείπει καὶ ἔθηκαν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τὴν κλίνην καὶ ἀπέθανεν καὶ ἐτάφη ἐνδόξως

    To find out what (S) means above, see the Version Info for LXT.

    Thanks for the tip Jim! I forgot about the verse mapping for that one.
