We are pleased to announce the availability of Open Hebrew Bible (OGNT) this 13 December 2018. This is courtesy of Eliran Wong, the module creator (https://github.com/eliranwong/OpenHebrewBible).

This project is a counterpart to our Open Greek New Testament Project.
Fruits of both Open Greek New Testament Project and Open Hebrew Hebrew Project will be integrated together in a forthcoming site Marvel.bible.

The project aims to:

  • align Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (Amstelodamensis) [BHS A] with Westminster Leningrad Codex [WLC]
  • build bridges between 3 major open-licensed projects on Hebrew Bible:
  1. ETCBC (Hebrew text BHSA, linguitic annotations, morphology, etc.)
  2. OpenScriptures (Hebrew text WLC, Strong's numbers, morphology, etc.)
  3. Berean.bible (interlinear translation, Berean Study Bible, etc.)
  • work out division of paragraphs and poetic lines in the text of BHS.
  • Resulting data will be presented in an upcoming site https://Marvel.bible

Remarks: Resources from my other GitHub repositories are drawn into this project for mapping purpose.
Major repositories used by this porject include:

https://github.com/eliranwong/ETCBC-recycle
https://github.com/eliranwong/BHS-morphology
https://github.com/eliranwong/BHS-Strong-no

Files/Modules included:

  1. OpenHB.bbl.mybible - Open Hebrew Interlinear Bible (OHB).

    Each word entry contains the following:

    • Pointed Hebrew word
    • Strong's number - Dictionary is included (please see Open Hebrew Bible Lexicon below)
    • BHS/ETCBC Morphology code with lemma
    • Transliteration - can be tapped to show detailed information about the Hebrew word (instead of using the Hebrew for the dictionary link, the transliteration was used so that it will not conflict with the MySword Deluxe version feature Strong's links on text which collapses the Strong's number and morphology into one link via the Hebrew word).
