I'd like to see the James Moffatt Translation of the Bible available as an Accordance module.

This translation has been in my personal print library for years and I believe that it is a generally ignored and underrated work by an extremely gifted translator. Using it alongside other English translations often results in many eye opening moments that usually result in a healthy digging session in the original languages.

I believe Moffat's is the only Bible translation to make reference to 'bagpipes,' can anyone confirm that?

Yes, in Daniel chapter 3 you will find reference to bagpipes.

Here is a link with the word bagpipes highlighted - http://books.google....agpipes&f=false

I'm back again to suggest the James Moffatt Translation of the Bible as an Accordance module.  It's a very interesting translation, especially for study in the Minor Prophets.
