Holy moly – something I discovered about @AccordanceBible

lamp_finalThe package I am reviewing includes the New English Translation of the Septuagint, a favorite of mine.

I opened Accordance this morning to search the NETS for Isaiah 9.5 (9.6 ENG).

because a child was born for us, a son also given to us, whose sovereignty was upon his shoulder, and he is named Messenger of Great Counsel, for I will bring peace upon the rulers, peace and health to him.

What I was surprised to discover is that where I closed off last time is exactly where it opened up this time.

accordance 8.18

To show you what I mean, I worked a little, closed it, and then opened it again.

Accordance 8.19

My workspace, even down to the dimensions of the tool bar, opened back up.

DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH TIME THAT SAVES ME???!?!?!?

One thing I would like to know, however, is where is the front matter on the NETS (which, in my opinion, makes the NETS invaluable for LXX research)?

  1. It’s separated out into a different module (because of how Accordance uses Bible texts–I can detail this offline if you want). You want “NETS Notes” for front matter and book introductions.
