This collection includes exclusive material such as the critical editions of the Greek and Hebrew Scriptures from the German Bible Society, recognized world-wide as exemplars of modern biblical scholarship. In addition to the Bible texts in the original languages, it includes other modern Bible editions, including English, Hebrew, and Greek, along with a wealth of Bible reference works and text-critical editions of the Septuagint, the Hebrew Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Gospel of Thomas.
This bundle also contains the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia with text critical apparatus and linguistic WIVU database, plus the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia: Workgroep Informatica Constituency Tree Analysis. The new WIVU database allow for a precise overview on how the single textual elements of a specific text passage are analyzed and hierarchically organized.
The scholarly editions here can be used effectively in different areas—for personal Bible study or a scholarly exegesis, for preparation of a class, in the parish or in an academic setting.
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 German and Netherlands Bible Societies are to be congratulated for offering an electronic product that is unlike any other available Bible software.

Sometimes referred to as the critical text, this is today’s most widely used Greek New Testament. It is the basis for nearly every Bible translation in the past 100 years. The Greek text, punctuation, and formatting reflects that of the UBS 4th Edition. Each word carries with it searchable morphological data along with lexical forms and English glosses. The Logos version of UBS5 will include morphological tagging enabling you to conduct cutting-edge word studies utilizing you’re entire Logos library.
