Updates: Bishops’, King James 1611, Wycliffe

Written by Michael Hanel on May 13th, 2007

As was promised earlier, Bob Venem with the help of others (especially Mark Eddy) have finished verse-mapping files (.VMF) for the three olde English versions Bishops’, King James 1611, and Wycliffe, which are now available. The files will look the same if you have already downloaded them, but included will be a file that ends in the extension .vmf. You will want to place the .vmf file in the subdirectory/folder called “databases” in your BibleWorks directory. The verse-mapping file ensures that when you read a verse in these versions, even if their versification doesn’t agree with another Bible version you are reading, that you will get that same verse as long as it is contained in that Bible version.

For instance if you look in the browse window in the ESV for Psalm 3:5 you will get: ESV Psalm 3:5 I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the LORD sustained me.

but if you also have the Hebrew WTT shown, you will see that the corresponding verse to that in Hebrew is not referred to as Psalm 3:5, but Psalm 3:6. The reason that you get the correct verse to show up (even if it is a different number) is because someone spent the time making a verse-map for the ESV and WTT.

Now this same feature will extend to these three Bibles.
