STOP PRESS Latest news Oct 2012: BIBLEWORKS for Macs!

Yes -- BibleWorks is announcing today that BW9 users can download a FREE installer that allows Mac users to run BibleWorks on their machines.

If you have the latest BW9 DVDs (rev 3), there is no additional cost to run the native version of BibleWorks 9 on a Mac. (NOTE: registered users with earlier BW9 versions can purchase replacement rev.3 DVDs for $25.)

This means users now have the following three options:
  1. OPTION #1 -- Running the Native version of BibleWorks on a Mac
  2. OPTION #2 -- Running BibleWorks on a Mac in a Virtual Machine
  3. OPTION #3 -- Running BibleWorks on a Mac using Boot Camp
We have new web pages detailing each option. They include screenshots, videos and other information to allow users to see which works best for them.


For program features new to version 5 in addition to those new to BibleWorks 6/7, if you are moving up from 3.5, 4 or earlier, see Bibleworks 5, or Bibleworks 6, or Bibleworks 7 or Bibleworks 8 for version 8 features.

Four Columns
You'll immediately notice the addition of another column to the main window. With two columns devoted to Analysis content you can customize it to view your favorite two resources simultaneously.

The BibleWorks Manuscript Project
This first installation of the BibleWorks Manuscript Project includes new transcriptions and complete image sets of Sinaiticus, Vaticanus, Alexandrinus, Bezae, Washingtonianus, Boernerianus, and GA1141 (over 7.5 GB!!). Manuscripts are fully searchable, and morphological tagging is partially complete (free updates are coming!)

The Moody Atlas of the Bible
BibleWorks comes with the full Moody Atlas. Its 118 masterful maps in high-resolution and dozens of photos can be easily inspected and copied to your presentations. No unlock required!

The CNTTS NT Critical Apparatus
The full New Testament Critical Apparatus from the Center for New Testament Textual Studies is now available for PCs! This exhaustive apparatus covers the entire New Testament. The BibleWorks version has been enhanced to show a matrix of Aland categories and time period for the mss for each reading. The apparatus tracks and updates as the mouse moves over the text in the BibleWorks main window. No unlock required!

ESV Study Bible
A must-have resource for all users! BibleWorks already comes with the ESV, but for only $20 all notes, articles, images, and maps from the ESV Study Bible are included. We took particular care to present high-resolution versions of all images and maps. The notes track and display in the main window next to any Bible version of your choice. Unlock required.


For program features new to version 5 in addition to those new to BibleWorks 6/7, if you are moving up from 4 or earlier, see Bibleworks 5, or Bibleworks 6, or Bibleworks 7 or Bibleworks 8 for version 8 features.

New Analysis Tabs
Expanded information about the current verse and search. We've made significant additions to the Analysis Window. Now when you do a search, the Context Tab shows the most common words in the current pericope, the most common words in the current chapter, and the most common words in the current book. With a click, the Browse Tab shows the full context for the active verse. A plot of the current search results is shown in the Stats Tab. All of this is right at your fingertips!

Phrase Matching Tool/Related Verses Tool
Find verses with similar words or similar phrases. Over lunch in mid-2007, we asked ourselves, "How could we find all verses which are similar to each other?" Out of this discussion came the Phrase Matching Tool and Related Verses Tool. The new Phrase Matching Tool takes your current verse and finds all verses containing similar phrases. The new Related Verses Tool finds all verses using some of the same words from the current verse.

New formatting for text export
More control over copied text. We've enhanced and refined the formatting of exported text. Now when you copy and paste Bible text, it's simple to format the text and reference using custom or preset output formats. This seemingly small feature will greatly improve your daily use of the program.

Cross-Reference Window
Instantly view related verses. When you pass the mouse over the text, the new Cross-Reference Window instantly shows cross-references for the verse under the mouse. You can draw from the Treasury of Scripture Knowledge, New Chain Reference Bible (Thompson, 1934), Nave's, Torrey's Topical Text Book, Stephan's Biographical Bible (enabling you to distinguish the 31 different Zechariahs), and cross-references from the ESV, NAS, and NIV/TNIV. This feature works for any of the Bible versions in the program! In addition, you can build your own cross-reference files and swap them with other users.

New Greek and Hebrew grammars
BibleWorks now comes with Wallace, Waltke & O'Connor, and JoŁon & Muraoka! The main BibleWorks package now includes three standard original language grammars: Exegetical Syntax of the New Testament (Wallace), Introduction to Biblical Hebrew Syntax (Waltke & O'Connor), and A Grammar of Biblical Hebrew (JoŁon & Muraoka). These electronic texts include the full text and graphics of the print editions and are closely linked to the Biblical texts in the program. Previously available only separately, these texts now come at no extra cost in BibleWorks 8!

Syntactic and Thematic Greek Transcription of the NT
Another full Greek NT diagram set. We're pleased to add an alternate set of Greek NT sentence diagrams. In addition to the Leedy Greek NT sentence diagrams, William MacDonald's "Textual Transcriptions" provide another helpful and insightful arrangement of the text.

Early Church Fathers
This mammoth popular work includes the complete series of the Schaff Ante-Nicene, Nicene, and Post-Nicene Fathers.

ERMIE: External Resources Manager
One-stop location for resources on your computer and resources on the Internet. Over time, you've probably collected a number of useful books, references, and documents in various formats (PDF, HTML, word processing formats, etc.). Add to that the myriad websites with all sorts of materials and courses you find useful in your studies. With ERMIE, you can collect and organize these local and online resources into an easy to browse catalog. ERMIE catalog files can be edited and shared with other users.

Daily Light devotional displayed in English, Greek, Hebrew, or any other Bible version
Maintain your Greek and Hebrew skills with a daily AM/PM reading. We took Samuel Bagster's well-loved daily Scripture readings and enhanced it for Greek/Hebrew review. View the readings in your favorite Bible translations, or use the Greek/Hebrew mode to display the Old Testament passages in Hebrew and the New Testament passages in Greek. A great way to start and end the day!

English Bible Text-to-Speech
If you're running BibleWorks on Microsoft Vista or Microsoft Windows 7 (requires supplemental voice packs in XP), you can hear English Bible text read aloud!

Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Thai, and Arabic Bibles
We are pleased finally to include Bibles in Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Thai, and Arabic!

Old Testament Pseudepigrapha (Greek)
We now include the Greek text and modern English translation of the Greek OT Pseudepigrapha. The Greek text is morphologically tagged and fully searchable.


For program features new to version 5 in addition to those new to BibleWorks 6/7, if you are moving up from 4 or earlier, see Bibleworks 5, or Bibleworks 6, or Bibleworks 7 or Bibleworks 8 for version 8 features.

New User Interface
The new BibleWorks interface is more intuitive and easier to use. The BibleWorks user interface has been redesigned to work the way you work. When you are researching a particular topic you normally progress from searching, to browsing, and, finally, to analysis of particular words. The new interface is laid out in this order so that your work flow is more natural and intuitive. See screenshots 1.

Study Guides
Learn by example. Use the full power of BibleWorks. New and experienced users will both appreciate the extensive set of task-oriented study guides that come with BibleWorks 7. Detailed instructions, complete with 4 hours of videos, will explain how to use BibleWorks to perform common tasks, like writing exegetical papers, searching Hebrew and Greek text and much more.

Support for Unicode Hebrew & Greek
Export Greek and Hebrew text in the formats you need. BibleWorks now supports both Unicode and non-Unicode Greek and Hebrew. Exporting Unicode is as simple as dragging highlighted text from BibleWorks to your word processor. Standard SBL and SIL Unicode Greek and Hebrew fonts are also included in the package.

Word and WordPad compatible.
In response to requests from many users, we have completely rewritten the BibleWorks editor from the ground up. It now has full support for Unicode and produces files that are fully compatible with Microsoft Word and WordPad.

The new editor has an impressive list of features including full undo and redo, hypertext links, graphics inserts, RTL typing in Hebrew with left-wrapped text (Unicode only), a full array of text formatting options, a Unicode character input table, plus full integration with BibleWorks, and much more.

Satellite Maps
Locate any Biblical site with the click of a mouse. BibleWorks comes with a set of beautiful satellite maps that you have to see to believe! The collection includes a full set of editable site and terrain overlays for major locations in Israel and Egypt, along with detailed overhead and elevation data and a comprehensive list of archaeological sites. You can even create your own map views, select sites to display, annotate key locations and trace journeys or battle lines. See screenshots 2.

Improved Lexicon Links
Find the right lexical entry every time. The tables that BibleWorks uses to bring up the right lexical entry when you place the mouse cursor over a Hebrew word have been carefully proofed and revised. This extensive revision resulted in nearly 50,000 corrections! All lexicons now have hypertext links for Scripture references and are also indexed so you can find all citations of a particular verse with the click of a mouse.


For program features new to version 5 in addition to those new to BibleWorks 6/7, if you are moving up from 4 or earlier, see Bibleworks 5, or Bibleworks 6, or Bibleworks 7 or Bibleworks 8 for version 8 features.

Diagramming Tool
Create grammatical diagrams of text, including Greek and Hebrew. The sophisticated and flexible diagrammer allows you to diagram English, Greek, and Hebrew text. You can make diagrams of phrases or of words. See screenshots 3 & 4

Flash cards
Build personal flashcard sets (print or electronic) and quiz yourself.

Greek/Hebrew paradigms
Click on a word in the Greek or Hebrew versions and the appropriate paradigm opens.

Auto-complete morphologies
As you type in a morph code, the available options appear in an automatic popup list.

Popup gloss and definitions
As your mouse passes over tagged words, a mini-window opens showing the gloss for Greek and Hebrew words.

Lexical/Grammatical Helps Window
As you move the mouse over tagged text, a colour-coded list of all lexical and grammatical references is displayed, including the introductory line from each reference.

Text colouring
Highlight text by hand or highlight search results with lasting colour and formatting.

Text comparison tool
Compare differences between multiple Bible versions.

Editable outlines
You can now edit and create your own Bible outlines that appear over the Bible text.

Clone windows
Open multiple copies of BibleWorks simultaneously. This makes it easy to save your place while you investigate other ideas.

Greek/Hebrew fonts
The new Greek and Hebrew fonts allow you to share documents in HTML, Word, Outlook, and many other applications.


Yellow highlighted items are new to Version 4.0. Orange highlighted items are new to Version 5. Ivory highlighted items are new to Version 6. Brown highlighted items are new to Version 7.


All versions and morphological databases are indexed and searchable

The most commonly used Bible translations are essentially error-free, but some specialized versions and the Greek and Hebrew morphological databases used today still need work. This is a new industry, and it will take time for these databases to settle. This is true of all packages on the market. Be wary of anyone who claims perfection in this area. Database quality is a moving target -- the more important issue is a companies commitment to correcting problems and providing a quality product. It will be a few years before the quality of these databases will be such that you can store your copy of Hatch and Redpath in the attic! Until then, serious scholars will want to cross-check final conclusions with the standard printed reference works.

Substantial progress has been made, and ongoing projects continue to improve the quality of our databases. Correction to these databases and our other versions are posted to our web site on a regular basis. They are free to download for registered BibleWorks users. As of this date, BibleWorks is the only Bible research software which offers this kind of support!

Review by Daniel J. Phillips, of Biblical Christianity, May 03, 2006
"Time would fail me to tell of thirty-two English translations, plus versions in twenty-two other modern languages. Now, free tools such as the valuable E-Sword also have a lot of free versions. What they don't have is the Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic resources built in to BW7...I'm very enthused about this version, and heartily recommend it to any serious student, particularly to anyone who's a student of the original languages. It is an amazing resource, a treasure house." Read full review.

BibleWorks 6 Review by Dave Sunman, Eden.co.uk, November 2004
"BibleWorks 6 is a comprehensive, versatile and incredibly powerful tool that will enable anyone to search through any of a large number of Bible versions for individual words, combinations of words appearing in the same verse, alternative words, phrases and just about any other combination that can be thought of. Searches are easy to set up and very quick". Read full review.

On some products competitive upgrade pricing or part-exchange may be available.

To date, the size of the BibleWorks program (over 12GB, compressed, for BibleWorks 9) has mitigated against its being made available by download. A 12GB fileset would take 9 hours to download at 3 Mbps (the 2010 average download speed). At 1.5 Mbps it would take 18 hours, and at 768 Kbps it would take 35 hours. As more customers gain access to wide broadband connections, BibleWorks will increasingly consider making distribution by download to client computers available as an option.

No matter what connection speed a user has, in addition, users will want to back up their installation files. A 12GB backup poses significant requirements (DVD-Rs hold only 4GB per disc).

A thin-client (cloud) version of BibleWorks poses other challenges. Experiments so far indicate such a version would incur unacceptable performance penalties. In addition, protection of the copyrighted databases included in BibleWorks is more difficult in such a version. Because of these two challenges, BibleWorks currently assesses the cost of maintaining a separate thin-client version so significant that it would drive the overall end-user cost of BibleWorks to unacceptable levels. Should future technology advances permit a single version to be used cost-effectively in both thick- and thin-client modes, or should thin-client architecture in the future substantially supplant thick-client applications, BibleWorks will then offer a thin-client version.
