Working With Bible Texts

Once a text is selected from the Bible Tree, from clicking a reference in a Dictionary Text or Commentary Text, or selecting one from the Verse History List, it is displayed in the Bible Panel.


Bible Display Panel

At the top of the Bible Window are Tabs representing all of the loaded Bible Modules. The Authorized Version (AV) is default, but clicking a different Tab will result in the current chapter being displayed in that text.

The Drop-down Arrow on the right will display a list of all the loaded Bible modules even if some of the Tabs are hidden.

The Toolbar Buttons on the Bible Panel from left to right are:

·    Reference History
A drop-down list of the last 25 references viewed. Select a reference from the list to again display the passage. The blue arrows will cycle through the list.
(The references are saved on close and restored on the next run of Bible Analyzer.)

·    Dual View
Will allow two Bible texts (or different sections of the same text) to be viewed independently. When clicked the
Master Control Panel will open and the Dual Texts View Tab will be selected.

For more information see
Dual View under Master Control Panel.

·    Export Bible Page To MultiWindow
This will export the current page to the MultiWindow where it can be saved for future use.

·    Verse/Paragragh View Toggle
This will show the Bible text in Paragraph View when on; Verse View when off.

·    Hide/Show Inline Footnotes
This will show any footnotes in the Bible text inline with the text.

·    Show Interlinear Viewer
Will show the current chapter in the Interlinear Viewer.

·    Hide/Show Strong's Numbers
Toggle Strong's Numbers in Bibles so equipped. This button will also control whether Strong's Numbers are visible in exported text and verse popups.

This button also includes a dropdown menu that allows selection of various displays of Strong's Numbers associated data. See below for more details.

·    Markup/Highlight Bible Text
When any Bible text is selected clicking this button will highlight the text with the color selected in the dropdown menu.

·    Hide/Show Cross-Reference Panel
Toggle Viewing the Cross-Reference Panel

Current Reference

To select a verse, making it the Current Reference, simply click on the teal colored verse digit at the beginning and it will be made the current reference marked by a shaded background. The shading color can be changed in Preferences.

Parallel View

The last Tab in the list of Bible modules is always the Parallel View Tab. When this tab is selected, the texts of all selected Bibles will be placed in a parallel table with verse alignment.

The Bibles displayed in the table can be selected by clicking the Select Texts link in the display.

At least one AV class text must be loaded in Parallel View.

Any text visible in Parallel View can be searched with the Right-Click Context Menu. When right-clicking on a word or selection a menu item will be generated with the search term to search in the selected Bible. Verses can also be exported from a Parallel Text. 

Popup Preview

If the Ctrl key is held down and the cursor is placed over a tab name in the Bible Panel, a popup will display a three verse preview with the current verse highlighted in the center. In the image below the AV Bible is current and the cursor is over the ASV tab with the Ctrl key held down.


Also, If the Control Key is pressed while the cursor is over a word in the Bible panel, a popup will display the definition for that word in the default dictionary if a definition is available. Below the cursor is over written,


The Dictionary Popup will work for words on nearly any Bible Analyzer page. Not just a Bible Page.

Click Actions

·    A left click on the teal verse number (1,) at the beginning of a verse in the Bible Window will by default search the commentary entries for that verse comment and display the default commentary.

·    Left clicking on a word will search the dictionary topics for the word and display the default dictionary and search the commentaries for that verse comment.

·    The actions are the same if the MultiWindow is used.

The Sync Buttons in the Commentary and Dictionary Windows can be toggled on/off to allow/disallow the corresponding window to update on a Bible reference/word click.

Also, an option to use a double-click instead of a single click to perform the above actions is available in Preferences.


Some Bibles, such as the Authorized King James Version that comes with version 4.2 and later, have footnotes (see image above). The footnotes are indicated by small numbers within or at the end of a verse. Placing the cursor over a number will cause the footnote to display in a popup.

With some Bibles, such as the NET Bible, footnotes are commentary module based. Clicking the indicator will cause the note to display in the corresponding Commentary Panel.

Notes over 800 characters will be truncated in the popup to restrict the popup size. Click the number to view the entire note in the Commentary Panel

The Footnote Toggle Button in the Bible Panel Toolbar will Hide/Show the footnote indicators. The default state is Show.

Bible Window Expanded

If the Bible Window is expanded (Alt+B), and if the Use MultiWindow When Bible is Expanded option is checked, any left clicks will display the results in the MultiWindow, even if the normal Use MultiWindow options are unchecked. This allows the user to only use the MultiWindow when the Bible is expanded and the standard windows when not expanded.

Strong's Numbers and Definitions

If you have the Authorized Version 1769, w/Strong's (or another Bible with Strong's), and the Strong's Dictionary of Hebrew and Greek Words modules loaded (available with the Bible Analyzer Suite CD-Rom), Strong's numbers will be displayed beside the corresponding word(s).

Placing the cursor over a number will cause a pop-up to be displayed showing Strong's Definition for that word. If the number is left-clicked, the definition will be selected in the Strong's Dictionary (and other resources that use Strong's Numbers) in the Dictionary Window.

The Strong's Button has a drop down menu with the following options:


Show Strong's Numbers
Will show the numbers within the Bible text (Only for Bible's which include the Strong's data. Typically Bibles that the tab label ends with 's,' i.e. AVs)

Show Hebrew/Greek Word
Will substitute the original Hebrew or Greek word for the Strong's Number in the display.

Show Hebrew/Greek Transliteration
Will substitute an English transliteration of the original Hebrew or Greek word for the Strong's Number.

Strong's Active But Not Visible
Will not display any Strong's data within the Bible text but will link the data to the associated words. On mouseover of a word the data will display in a popup (or Quick View Panel) the same as if it was over a visible Strong's Number.

Right-Click Menu

Right-clicking on a reference or word will bring up a menu. See Right-Click Menu for details.

Right-click on the verse number to have verse options or on a word to have word options. (Viewing the right-click menu with Crtl key down is not possible)
