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.

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).

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).

WEB WoC tends to go on and on; quote beginning in Matt.3.15 never ends, resulting in the rest of the NT being red (BibleCS) or with intermittent black (BD)--Osk

Booktitles are wrong (Mark called Luke, Luke John etc)refdoc:talk

crashes bibletime when trying to view Mark 4 (HNV doesn't have same issue) on Bibletime 1.6

Software crashes are not typically the fault of the module, and in the absence of a more specific report, there's not much to go on here. BibleCS and BD have no problem with Mark.4. --Osk 07:13, 11 January 2009 (UTC)GS is fine refdoc:talk 01:50, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Module Name Updated Does the module appear complete? Encoding problems? .conf problems? Display problems on any frontend? Ready / Fix / Hold
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.

Module Name Updated Does the module appear complete? Encoding problems? .conf problems? Display problems on any frontend? Ready / Fix / Hold

GerLut1912 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.

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?
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)

Jub Jub 35:3 is in /Jub/35, not /Jub/35/3

Jub 38:6 is in /Jub/38

Jub 47, 48 links to exodus aren't osisref'ed

Didache Even when a proper font is selected, some text seems problematic. See /Didache/1/6, which contains:"??? σου". If this is unknown text or if there are textual variants, then a footnote should be added to let the reader know that this is not an encoding problem. Basic contents display properly in BT, GS, BibleCS, and BD after an appropriate font is selected. Navigation can be a bit awkward. Didache/1 should present the reader with a title heading such as "Chapter 1" (but in Greek which I can't read). Still better, front ends should have a way to present all verses of the chapter without individual verse-navigation, which is very awkward. BT does this well, BD and BibleCS make this module painful to navigate. Navigation in GS is so-so.

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
  • Inconsistently displays <l> elements.
  • Inconsistently displays pre-verse titles.
  • in ThML Genbooks, BD fails to display any div which includes <verse> tags

GS

  • Does not handle WoC when milestoned quotes are used: Words of Christ
  • Parallel references in section headings in the Gospels display as *x but do not point to the parallel text. They appear as a cross-reference to the first verse in that chapter. For an example, see Mark 1 or Luke 4 in VietNVB.
  • <lg> elements can cause an extra space to be added between the verse number and text.

XP

BT

  • <div type="section"> and <lg> elements can cause an extra space to be added between the verse number and text.

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
