NA 28, Vulgata 5th edition, & more added to BibleWorks 9!

BibleWorks 9 now comes with the Nestle-Aland, Novum Testamentum Graece, 28th revised edition (includes lemmatization and morphological tagging)! Existing users can add the NA28 to their installation by purchasing the updated BibleWorks 9 Revision 4 DVD set (see below). Due to licensing restrictions we cannot offer these updates as free downloads, but the databases detailed below are all included in the new BibleWorks 9 Revision 4 DVDs.

The NA28 in BibleWorks 9 does not yet contain the critical apparatus (we are working on that for future release).

The main differences between NA27 and NA28 are these:

James 1:20; 2:3, 4, 15; 4:10 (now preferring μερει); 1 Peter 1:6, 16; 2:5, 25; 4:16; 5:1, 9, 10; 2 Peter 2:6, 11, 15, 18, 20; 3:6, 10 (preferring ουξ ευρεθησεται), 16, 18; 1 John 1:7; 3:7; 5:10, 18; 2 John 5, 12; 3 John 4; Jude 5 (preferring Ιησους), 18.

In addition to these there are dozens of minor capitalization and orthographical changes.

To provide this new material for our users, BibleWorks has created a new set of BibleWorks 9 DVDs (Revision 4). The Revision 4 disks contain the following additional content:

  • Nestle-Aland, Novum Testamentum Graece, 28th revised edition (fully tagged morphologically but without critical apparatus)
  • Vulgata, 5th revised edition (without critical apparatus)
  • Die Bibel nach der ‹bersetzung Martin Luthers in der revidierten Fassung von 1984

All content in earlier BibleWorks 9 revisions remains the same in the Revision 4 DVD set. In particular, the Nestle-Aland 27th revised edition is retained in Revision 4.

All new orders for BibleWorks 9 (both new and upgrade orders) after 6/30/2013 will receive Revision 4 DVD sets. Those having previous-revision DVDs of BibleWorks 9 may order a set of Revision 4 DVDs, at the normal replacement DVD price, at

Those ordering replacement Revision 4 DVDs should, upon receipt of the Revision 4 DVDs, follow the installation instructions here

Current BibleWorks 9 customers who are happy with their current program are not required to purchase the BibleWorks 9 Revision 4 DVD set. Although the new Revision 4 content will not be available to them, their previous BibleWorks 9 software will continue to operate and be updated just as before.

Customers using a Mac computer (which currently requires BibleWorks 9 Revision 3 DVDs and the BibleWorks Mac Public Preview to install), will be able to install the Mac Public Preview using the Revision 4 DVD set as well.
