Re: Understanding copyright of personal greek translation wo

The lack of a freely licensed, high-quality English translation drives me nuts, I could really use one for parallel aligned syntax trees, and other people could use them to produce other high-quality resources for people using original languages. If anyone knows of a good one, please do let me know...

Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

Is the text of OpenGNT basically the NA28 and therefore subject to the same licensing restrictions? I've seen an argument that if the NA28 or UBS etc. claim to be as close as possible to the original, then they ought to be considered public domain by virtue of their age. St. Paul's copyrights lapsed...

Re: Online Texts (Byzantine Majority; Westcott-Hort)

Bible hub as far as I know doesn't give you the ability to compare Robinson-Pierpont with Westcott-Hort, SBLGNT, THGNT, ... The StepBible does that. You can display all four editions with the interleave plus comparison option found on the menu under the little gear symbol in the upper right of the ...

Re: Online Texts (Byzantine Majority; Westcott-Hort)

I have been learning Mark verse by verse with the limited resources. This is how I have been learning: On the first day I learn verse 1. I listen to mp3s by this order: Prof. Robinson (slow speed), Louis Sorenson (moderate), Marilyn Phemister (medium), John Simon (quick) and Vasilios Vellas (fast)....

Re: Greek Byzantine New Testament MP3

The Maurice Robinson recordings are included in BibleWorks (while they are still open for the next week or so). Their closure might mean someone else (Accordance?) picks up their catalogue to resell. I think Accordance uses the John Schwandt recordings, as does Logos. I think you're right. BibleWor...

Re: Greek Byzantine New Testament MP3

The Maurice Robinson recordings are included in BibleWorks (while they are still open for the next week or so). Their closure might mean someone else (Accordance?) picks up their catalogue to resell. This other NT recording is not from the Hellenic Bible Society, and is a bit quick, but it is clear ...

Re: 5x1 definition challenge

Back to the original topic, though:

ὀλιγόπιστος (οὐσιαστικό): ὀ μικρήν πίστιν ἔχειν

ἀρετή (οὐσιαστικό): τι ἄνθρωπος ἔχων, ὤστε λέγομεν περί αὐτού λέγων Αὐτος μεγας και δίκαιος ἐστίν

(Please pardon and/or correct my many errors; I am very new at this.)

Re: 5x1 definition challenge

Is there a textbook that provides example sentences for each vocabulary word that is fully comprehensible for the student in the Greek ? Randall Buth has "400 friends", "Λέξεις 400" -- I have a Greek one from the John audio package, but I think they might be included with the textbooks as well, pos...

Re: Sad news about BibleWorks

Microsoft and Apple march ever forward ensuring that you will not be using 50 to 60-year-old software. The nature of an operating system means that it needs to remain tied to the latest hardware -- its job is to make the latest hardware useful to application software. But that doesn't mean we can't...
