  • eSword - The sword of the LORD

    If you want a good computer based study tool, this one works very well.

    Some of the features include:

    Dozens of Bible versions.
    Many different commentaries, dictionaries and maps, etc.
    Strong's concordance built in.

    It is a free tool, and donations are accepted. There a few translations or other tools which charge a nominal fee. Check it out if you have not done so.

    Don't panic! Just be Rapture Ready.

    Joel 3:2

    I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.

    I used to use the Pocket PC version of this. e-Sword Pocket, I think it's called. I'd still be using it if I still used my Pocket PC.

    I know with the Pocket PC version at least, you had to actually purchase some of the different Bible versions, because of copyright restrictions. But there is plenty of good free stuff for it.
    "I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe that I may understand: for this I also believe, that unless I believe I will not understand." --Anselm of Canterbury

    Hebrews 12:3-4
    For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin.

      For those of you, like myself, who use e-sword extensively, please consider purchasing the CD from the website. Its packed with goodies and helps support this worthy ministry.
      The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.
      Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge.
      (Psa 19:1b-2)

            I love this study tool! I just downloaded it a few months ago and I use it all the time Very helpful. I've even got my husband loving it and he hates anything on a computer. I showed him how simple it was and now he uses it all the time too.
            "..but the hand of the LORD was strong upon me." -Ezek. 3:14
            May it ever be so!

              Thanks for the link. I just downloaded it and it seems very helpful.
              Does anyone know if it's possible to get e-Sword onto an iPod Touch?

                You mean disk space? A bit less than 300MB on my machine.

                Depends on how many plugins you add to it, and you WILL add plugins.

                  E-Sword is my primary study tool since I found it. I have access to my churches server and some much stronger study tools but E-Sword is a lot easier to use.

                      I use it all the time! I also downloaded "Antiquities Of The Jews" by Flavius Josephus for e-sword.

                        Fantastic program! Wrote several papers on it already from results I found doing Bible studies while using it. The built in H&G dictionary is very essential.

                          I found E-Sword is very slow, though a very nice tool otherwise. If you wanted something very simple and fast for an electronic bible for free (minus the extras), check out the Berean Bible software (berbible), which is extremely fast and performs very quick searches.

                          http://www.berbible.org/

                          I have Pocket E-Sword, yet always end up loading up Berbible to search for stuff.

                          Free bundle with ESV, NASB, NKJV, KJV, and other Bibles. (about 10 MB)

                            Besides that I find that the NET bible online is very good for looking up verses and comparing against other version. Check out this page (hover over the Greek, and watch the other corresponding verses highlight):

                            http://net.bible.org/verse.php?searc...er=16&verse=18

                            I'm not a fan of the NET translation, but the textual footnotes are awesome. Speaking of which you can also get for E-Sword.

                              Thank you very much for this link...It was a little difficult for me to find the bibles that are available for download. Here is that link for anyone else who did not know they were there...
