Update! Loadsa stuff!

April 18th, 2016

Firstly – Happy New Year!

It’s been over a year since I last posted about things new on TWTY.

Unfortunately lots of IRL stuff got in the way of things this past year, and still ongoing (found out I had cataracts on my eyes last year: my right eye has been operated on; my left will be done at the end of April. Needless to say, not being able to see properly makes what I’ve been doing the past decade quite difficult!), but I hope this comes to its conclusion soon. πŸ™‚

Nevertheless, I have been using as much of my spare time as possible to continue doing things, and so here we are!

Essentially, I have done so many corrections to existing things on TWTY, that unless you’ve downloaded everything in the past 4 hours, then everything you currently have is out of date – this applies to the translations, ancient manuscripts, and especially any and all Dead Sea Scrolls! I lost track of which ones got updates, so I can’t provide a list, so if there’s any you’ve been looking at recently, I’d start with re-downloading that and taking a look through. May find a few things I have corrected since. πŸ™‚

That’s the already existing files out of the way – now for what’s going on “new stuff” wise!

There are three new DSS Manuscripts online now – X Joshua, X Judges, and F.Amos 1, all available at the usual place on the Downloads Page.

There’s also been a new section added on the downloads page – a TC Edition, with TC standing for Textual-Critical. These are the combined manuscripts of the Dead Sea Scrolls in order to form a full “Qumran Bible” of sorts, with any differences between the manuscripts noted in footnotes, with the reading of the Masoretic Hebrew, Greek Septuagint, and for the Torah, the Samaritan Pentateuch in the same variant.

Obviously I haven’t repeated the differences between the DSS and these other manuscripts in these TC Editions, as I’ve already done that in the main Dead Sea Scrolls transcriptions. I’ve been updating this new section over the past year, and have only got four books left to do (Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Psalms, and Isaiah). I hope to have these done by the end of the year, but as always, this is liable to change. πŸ™‚

Next up is a new TWTY E-sword module, containing the Version 1 Translation of the RC/NT found here on TWTY. Well I say that, I still have yet to finish adding Luke, John, and Acts to the Module, but all the rest of the books are contained within.

If you don’t know what E-Sword is, pop on over to the E-Sword website and take a look. Along with TWTY module is the Module installer programme, to allow you to easily install TWTY E-sword module into E-Sword without much bother.

As I was going through the translations whilst creating this module, it allowed me to do some updates to the translations, which have all been added to the E-Sword module, the Website, and the PDF’s of the translations.

Download all the Version 1 PDF’s and the E-Sword module here.

Yet another update comes to you via a visitor to TWTY, who is very kindly converting the Dead Sea Scrolls files into BibleWorks database files. With their permission I am putting them up on TWTY for others to download and use with their version of BibleWorks. Currently have the Genesis Manuscripts and the Great Isaiah Scroll (1QIsaa) complete. I will post updates periodically when new files are added. Get the files (including instructions on how to import them to your BibleWorks) here.

Finally, we have a small addition to TWTY, and that is an XML version of the Dead Sea Scrolls manuscripts. XML has so many amazing uses I wouldn’t be able to list them all, but if you know what XML is, then you’ll enjoy this update. Only the one ready at the moment, but as always, I shall add others when I’ve done them. πŸ™‚ 4Q82g Habakkuk XML.

Phew! That’s it – all things updated/new have been submitted for your pleasure!

As with everything, feel at liberty to use any and all things on TWTY freely and without constraints, and ANY issues you find, don’t hesitate to contact me using either the Contact page, or by posting on the forums πŸ™‚

Edit:
The E-Sword and BibleWorks Modules should be able to be downloaded now. Apologies for the error with that!

TWTY Update – Dead Sea Scrolls

June 5th, 2012

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted an update to TWTY. There are a few reasons for this:

1) I moved into my own house *yay* – means I’ve had to spend time moving, sorting stuff out, and basically, spending a whole load of money I don’t particularly have on furniture, as well as household bills

2) I started a new, full-time job*yay* – this means I’ve been busy with work, not only at our office, but also at home too.

Both 1) & 2) lead to *nay* – meaning I’ve not had as much time I have had over the last couple of years to do stuff when I want to do them.

Never fear though – I’m not one to take a long break, and I’ve been continuing most of my projects here on TWTY. This first update this month is some more Dead Sea Scrolls transcriptions (woo), comprising the books of 1 & 2 Kings, 2 Chronicles (no manuscript of 1 Chronicles was found among the DSS), and proverbs. They are the following:

6Q4papKings – Containing the Books of 1 & 2 Kings (fragmentary condition)
4Q188 Chronicles – Containing the Book of 2 Chronicles (1 Chronicles not being extant on any manuscript found among the Dead Sea Scrolls)
4Q102Prova – Containing Chapters from the Book of Proverbs (fragmentary condition)
4Q103Provb – Containing Chapters from the Book of Proverbs (fragmentary condition)

As usual, these are all available from the Downloads Page, which also has a link to it to the right πŸ™‚

Dead Sea Scrolls – Zephaniah Text

August 8th, 2011

I have now uploaded PDF’s of the text of Zephaniah as found in the Dead Sea Scrolls manuscripts: Wadi Murabba’at; Nahal Hever Greek Minor Prophets 8HevXIIgr; 4Q77b/4QXIIb; 4Q78c/4QXIIc; and 4Q82g/4QXIIg. That’s now 4 of the 12 Minor Prophets completed, all with comparisons against the accepted text of the Greek Septuagint and Masoretic Hebrew πŸ™‚

Wadi Murabba’at | Nahal Hever Greek Minor Prophets 8HevXIIgr | 4Q77b/4QXIIb | 4Q78c/4QXIIc | 4Q82g/4QXIIg

Edit: For the above, please refer to the Downloads Page.

(As a little funny aside, I was reading along in The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible as I was doing Zephaniah, and in their introduction to Zephaniah, the scholars who did the translation start off with “The four short chapters of Zephaniah are well attested in the scrolls…” The funny thing is, there’s actually only three chapters in Zephaniah, not four πŸ™‚ )

Dead Sea Scrolls – Habakkuk Texts

August 3rd, 2011

All of the Dead Sea Scrolls Scriptural manuscripts regarding the text of the book of Habakkuk should now be online on the Research Page in PDF form.

There is an extensive Pesher text on the Book of Habakkuk (probably the largest Pesher text on one of the Minor prophets found at Qumran) which I may put online in the future, although there is a translation of the actual text in the Pesher to be found in Geza Vermes The Complete Dead Sea Scrolls In English for people to read πŸ™‚

Anyway, here are the direct links:

Wadi Murabba’at Habakkuk | 4Q82g Habakkuk | Nahal Hever Greek Minor Prophets 8HevXIIgr Habakkuk

Edit: For the above, please refer to the Downloads Page.

Success! Smallest Papyri Complete

But as I said before, I’m now going to be concentrating on looking at the manuscripts found among the caves of Qumran (Dead Sea Scrolls), so check back here soon for some stuff regarding them πŸ™‚

Update! Greek Basis and Papyrus 64 Transcription

May 23rd, 2011

Bit of an early morning (well, for my time zone anyway) update to TWTY: The Greek Basis of the book of Yahuchanon, and a Transcription and Translation of Papyrus 64 (probably the oldest manuscript to contain text from the eyewitness account of MattithYah/Matthew – in this case the text of Matt 26:7-33).

This means I only have three more Greek Basis to complete: MattithYah, Lucus, and Acts. But as it happens, I’m very much in the mood for doing some more transcriptions and translations of all the oldest known Greek manuscripts of the Renewed Covenant books, so I shall be putting the Greek Basis on hold for the time being. Or knowing me, I’ll probably end up doing it in stages and letting you know when I’ve completed them all fully πŸ™‚
