Free/Open Access Bible Software

Dr. David Instone-Brewer of Tyndale House ( comes up regularly with very useful information and resources for biblical studies. He has recently published a list of electronic software for biblical studies, much of which can either be accessed directly from the web or downloaded free. The list is too long to replicate here, so I'll simply give the url and let you browse:

Some of the categories are parallel and interlinear Bibles, dictionaries, lexicons, concordances, structural analyses of texts, atlases, and, of course, the sorts of searching on Hebrew and Greek texts that one finds with commercial software such as BibleWorks. Instone-Brewer provides screen shots of the software, which is rather small; but just place the cursor over any and they enlarge. Tap/click the shot and you are taken to the website of the respective manufacturer.
