Praise for the Print Edition

It really is a pleasure to look up and search in ways never thought possible before these great electronic resources. I must confess that the ‘wow’ factor remains high even after roughly three months of use.

—Rubén Gómez, Bible Software Review

With the critical apparatuses, a good selection of modern versions in European languages, as well as the potential that lies in the WIVU database, the Bible Society is to be congratulated for offering an electronic product that is unlike any other available Bible software.

The Greek New Testament, Fourth Revised Edition (with Apparatus)

  • Editors: Barbara Aland, Kurt Aland, Johannes Karavidopoulos, Carlo M. Martini, and Bruce M. Metzger
  • Edition: Fourth Revised
  • Publication Date: 2000

The Greek text, established by an international and interconfessional committee, is identical to that of the 26th and 27th editions of Novum Testamentum Graece by Nestle-Aland except for some minor punctuation and paragraphing differences. The apparatus includes only those textual variants that involve significant differences in meaning for translators. For each variant, extensive manuscript evidence is cited, and an indication is given of the relative degree of certainty for each textual decision. A separate apparatus provides information on major differences in punctuation among modern Bible translations. The introduction and section headings are in English.

NA27 with Critical Apparatus

  • Editors: Barbara Aland, Kurt Aland, Johannes Karavidopoulos, Carlo M. Martini,  and Bruce M. Metzger
  • Publication Date: 1993

Novum Testamentum Graece is the Latin name of the original Greek-language version of the New Testament. The first printed edition was the Complutensian Polyglot Bible by Cardinal Francisco Jiménez de Cisneros, printed in 1514 but not published until 1520. The first published edition of the Greek New Testament was produced by Erasmus in 1516. Sometimes referred to as the “critical text,” this is the Greek text most widely used today and the basis for nearly every modern Bible translation in the past hundred years. Also included is the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece Apparatus Criticus.

Kleines Wörterbuch zum Neuen Testament: Griechisch–Deutsch

  • Publication Date: 1992

This Greek-German dictionary of the New Testament, put together by Rudolf Kassühlke, was based on A Concise Greek-English Dictionary of the New Testament by Barclay M. Newman Jr.

BHQ with Critical Apparatus, including Minor Prophets and Proverbs

  • Editors: A. Schenker, J. Waard, P. B. Dirksen, Y. Goldman, R. Schäfer, M. Sæbø, D. Marcus, and C. McCarthy
  • Publication Date: 1995

Biblia Hebraica Quinta is a diplomatic presentation of text and Masorah (magna and parva) of the manuscript EBP. I B 19a in the Russian National Library in St. Petersburg, commonly known as the Leningrad Codex. This edition is based on new color photographs made by the Ancient Biblical Manuscript Center of Claremont, California. The oldest complete manuscript of the Hebrew Bible, it serves as the base text against which other witnesses are collated.

A general introduction in English, German, and Spanish presents this edition and characterizes the text and Masorah of the base text, the particular use of resources, the relation of BHQ to BHS and previous editions, the standards of collation and citation of witnesses, and a comprehensive list of sigla and abbreviations in the edition.

An introduction to each book discusses the particular textual features of that book and characterizes the ancient witnesses. Each book is also accompanied by a commentary. Here the editors discuss their decisions, translate the Masorah magna, and note problems with the Masorah magna and parva—and, where possible, resolve them.

The Minor Prophets and Proverbs will be a future addition at no cost once it is released.

Septuaginta: SESB Edition with Apparatus and Alternate Texts

  • Editors: Alfred Rahlfs and Robert Hanhart
  • Publication Date: 2006
  • Volumes: 4

The Septuagint (LXX) is the Greek translation of the Hebrew Scriptures, according to tradition completed by 70 Jewish scholars (hence the name) sometime in the third century BC. It is the Bible that the Greek-speaking world read during the time of the apostles, to which Paul would have referred in his dealings with his churches. The Rahlf’s edition is the most modern critical edition of this text. The morphology, prepared by the University of Pennsylvania, gives the user the ability to draw parsing and glossary information directly from the text, which is especially important because the Greek of the LXX is significantly different from that of the New Testament.

This revised edition, edited by Robert Hanhart, includes several hundred corrections made according to the results of newer scholarly research. This collection also includes the alternate texts and apparatuses for each.

Biblia Sacra Vulgata: Psalmi iuxta Hebraicum et Varia Lectio (SESB) with Apparatus

  • Publication Date: 1969
  • Volumes: 2

Also included is the apparatus to go along with this resource.

Biblia Sacra Vulgata (SESB) with Apparatus

  • Editors: Robert Weber and Roger Gryson
  • Publication Date: 1969
  • Volumes: 2

The Vulgate continues to be of scholarly use today in the study of the textual transmission of the Bible and in the historical study of Christian theology. Also included is the apparatus to go along with this resource.
