The following annotations can help you choose what modules to use in TheWord. Most can be found here.

Bibles:

English:

  • Lexham English Bible – This is the translation I recommend you use in parallel with the NA27 text. The LEB has translation notes that help you understand Greek syntax, and the translators made the word order of the English match that of the Greek which is very helpful to the beginning Greek student. (read more)  An even more literal Bible is the YLT.
  • English Standard Version – Popular pew Bible (more).
  • Geneva Bible of 1587 – The Bible of the Puritans. (more)
  • King James Version – When you use this Bible, you can wave your mouse over any word and the information from the Strong’s dictionary will popup.  Extremely useful.  (here)
  • NET Bible – This Bible has an incredibly useful set of notes which can assist students in analyzing the text.
  • The NASB bundle is a superb tool since it comes with the NASB concordance. This allows you to click on an English word, see the underlying Greek/Hebrew word, and then see how the NASB translators translated this word in all the other places where it occurs.

Original Language texts:

  • Both the NA27, NA28, and the UBS editions of the Greek NT are available as paid modules.  The TR is free as is the SBL Greek NT.  The TR versions and the paid modules have full parsing.
  • The only Hebrew text that has full parsing is found in the Groves-Wheeler Westminster Hebrew morphology module.

Commentaries:

  • There are so many commentaries available.  Sort through this list and see what you find.  If you need further information on a commentary, please do ask.  For the Greek student, A.T. Robertson’s Word Pictures in the New Testament are very helpful.

 Greek:

Hebrew:

  • Brown-Driver-Briggs’ Hebrew Definitions – Still the standard Hebrew lexicon. This edition for TheWord is especially useful since it is a scaled back version of what is in BDB. This gives you only the headings of the definitions which can save you considerable time. If you want more detail, the print version is quite inexpensive.
  • TWOT is an excellent dictionary that has articles for each word instead of just glosses like BDB.
