Beta Bible Modules

Note: Missing verses are based upon the KJV versification. A list of common versification systems and how they vary from the NRSVA versification can be found here and here.

Original Language Bibles

This section should primarily contain Greek and Hebrew Bibles, but others that serve as source texts for various denominations may also be placed here (i.e. Latin, OCS, Syriac, & Coptic texts).

Vulgate_Clem (Updated 2008-07-24) Whole Bible
whole of Esther, Daniel is missing
none none Displays well in BibleCS, GS, SW, BD
Elzevir NT Actually looks fine in 1.5.11, but morph types can't be toggled independently. The 1.5.12 requirement is based on some code that was in 1.5.11pre but removed, which could handle different lemma types, so it may not be necessary for handling different morph types. Should we change req. to 1.5.11 & release as is?

Another issue is that the second morph type is TVM codes, which we don't yet have a key to (i.e. we don't have a module that translates TVM codes to plain English yet).

English Bibles

Module Name Is the module complete? Any eternal loops or other structural problems? Conf Problems? Display problems on any frontend? Ready for import into main repository?
ABU NT only, conf reflects this, appears complete features: WoC

There is a WoC display problem.

See Talk:Modules_in_the_beta_repository#ABU for a discussion.

None Displays fine in GS, MS, SW, BibleCS, and BD but for WoC problem in these front ends [this problem is a code or frontend error--will not fix--Osk]. hold pending decisions re: WoC markup
KJC (reissued 2008-06-28) NT only, conf reflects this none none displays fine in GS, BibleCS, BD, SW, MS hold pending decisions re: WoC markup
Worsleys NT only, conf reflects this None In GS, MS, SW, BibleCS and BD WoC problem (see e.g. Matt 5), but otherwise fine. hold pending decisions re: WoC markup
WEB Displays fine SW, WoC not visible in BD, WoC problem in GS,
HNV whole Bible none WoC problem (e.g. rev 1) needs fixing

French Bibles

Module Name Is the module complete? Any eternal loops or other structural problems? Conf Problems? Display problems on any frontend? Ready for import into main repository?
FreJND Whole Bible, appears complete features: FN and Xref work fine

Skc (maintainer)> See FreJND about markup, it must probably be added in .conf, but where?

DMS: I'd suggest a textual comment in the About.

Headings in Psalms are all "canonical" and not subject to "heading" filter. If these are the only headings, should the conf still have Feature=OSISHeading? Displays fine in BD, in GS occ UTF8 problem - Mal 1:9 and Matt1:20 create odd characters (star in front of SEIGNEUR or DIEU (skc> this is intentional)), SW displays junk before DIEU in Mal 1:9 (looks like an engine problem handling <divineName>), MS doesn't display these verses at all, BibleCS ok

German Bibles

Note: Versification of German Bibles in the old Testament is in stretches extremely different from the KJV. Both chapters and verses are of different length. As a result a lot of KJV verses, particularly at chapter ends are empty and other chapter ends are overloaded. Particular problems exist in the small prophets: Joel has 4 chapters and Malachi only 3 in original versification. As a result following verses appear empty when KJV versification is imposed.

GerLut1912 (updated 2008-07-17) Whole Bible Displays fine in BibleCS,GS,BD, SW

Has an inability to display pre-verse titles, which are very common, resulting in display problems in most frontends. Might need to wait on osis2mod update before release.

GerNEU Whole Bible, very incomplete OT!

The bible text is work in progress. Some updates have been introduced on 17th May to the source text. Can this module be updated?

Module itself has many UTF problems - not fit for consumption right now. Conf needs help. UTF-8 failures in Description, About, ShortPromo. ShortCopyright has Uebersetzung - should be with an umlaut. Module should be renamed to GerNeÜ actually. Displays fine in GS, BD, MS and BibleCS hold pending update to latest revision

Wycliffe Bibles

Global Problems:
These Bibles are likely to have the same set of problems. If you find an error that pertains to more than one, please briefly note it below and provide details with references here:

jvn_BL_1999 Displays fine in SW
kek_WBTI_2000 Displays fine in SW
lac_BL_1978 Global header note problem (see above). Displays fine in SW.
mir_BL_1988 Incomplete? Using SW, a spot check of three arbitrary chapters shows empty verses. See Matt 5, v15,16,30,35,36 are missing. Jas 1, v8,11 missing. Rom 8, v4,8 missing.

Those are all linked verses. (Matt.5.14, Matt.5.15, Matt.5.16 are a single block, where the latter two link to the entry of the first.) Nonetheless, emptyvss is reporting numerous genuinely empty (and unlinked) verses that should have some linking, according to the OSIS source. There might be some sort of importer problem here. (But there is no missing text that I can see.)


There are 2 bugs in osis2mod: linking is not working and appended, interverse material is replacing a link.

Barnes Gen 1.1 entry is not UTF-8 (quotes, nbsp), perhaps elsewhere In BD and GS the bad encoding makes the module look very bad. in SW some characters do not display (? quotation marks) e.g James 2:1 2nd paragraph needs fixing
CalvinCommentaries Many, not all books from OT and NT, Conf reflects this, features - no FN found Displays fine in GS, BD, MS, SW, cross reference links in BibleCS often displayed as HTML text. e.g. Mark 1:1 second last paragraph needs fixing
Clarke*hold testing, update planned* Whole Bible, appears complete Displays well in GS, SW. In BD the bad encoding makes the module look very bad. needs fixing
TSK displays well in GS. In SW only vers 1 is shown and links do not work.

Hebrew letters are not done properly (comparing with e-sword) e.g. Judg 12:6, where ת appears as ϊ and ו as ε. Another example is Nehemiah 7:61, where again it seems to have greek letters, not hebrew.

Also, it is missing the diagram (and introductory text to it) for Numbers 35:4. Is this type of schematic possible in OSIS (or just include an image)?

Which should we use?
GenBook links like Bible:VUL:Gen.1.1 do not work in BD. This is a BD bug. At the same time though I think that it is inappropriate to prescribe which Bible (Vulgata) is linked to, given that this genBook is in English Refdoc
If an author cites a particular work, as Aquinas is likely to have done, this is appropriate. More significantly, since Aquinas is working from Bibles with a different reference system from Bible.NRSVA, it's important to identify that somehow so that we have the potential to do reference system translation.Osk 21:47, 28 June 2008 (MDT)

Aquinas will have quoted the Vulgata as it was the authorative translation (i.e. not as a preference, but dt lack of alternative). It is a new situation to have an abundance of translations. I do agree though with the versification being a problem. Only - it will not work right now either as even the Vulgate will be KJV versified. My long term suggestion would be to introduce (once GenBokk bibles are reality) a conf property regarding versification GenBooks could then refer to VersScheme:Book:Chapter:Verse instead of ModName:Book:Chapter:Verse - which would allow users to use a variety of applicable Bible translations with any given gen book.Refdoc 02:01, 1 July 2008 (MDT)

Application Bugs Found During Testing

During testing pre-existing bugs may be found in an application.

MS

  • In GenBooks: click on a leaf, then click on (About). (About) does not show. Sometimes nothing happens, other times another entry's content shows.
  • In About w/ UTF-8 characters, e.g. GerLutherpredigten, garbage is shown because it tries to interpret it as "Latin-1".
  • Does not handle WoC when milestoned quotes are used: Words of Christ

BD

  • Does not handle foot-notes in anything but Bibles.
  • Does not handle WoC when milestoned quotes are used: Words of Christ
  • links leading to a specific Bible module do not work

GS

  • Does not handle WoC when milestoned quotes are used: Words of Christ

SW

  • Does not handle UTF-8 in Description when listing names of modules.
  • In About w/ UTF-8 characters, e.g. GerLutherpredigten, garbage is shown because it tries to interpret it as "Latin-1".
  • In About w/ \uxxxxx? RTF codes, e.g. TurNTB, ? is shown.
    • Well, that's the expected behavior if the font lacks the encoded character (and so, not a software or a module bug but a font deficiency if anything).-Osk
  • Does not handle WoC when milestoned quotes are used and transChange is in the WoC:
    Words <transChange type="added">of</transChange> Christ
    The words following <transChange> are not highlighted.
  • Links to Bible references in Daily devotions do not work
  • Shows in commentaries only Vers 1 rather than whole chapter when asked to show a chapter - e.g. Genesis 1 - only Gen 1:1 will show up
