Just a suggestion.
I brought this same issue previously. I do understand the why that Accordance chooses to display it the way it is. But, if I may suggest a different way that helps those of us that do not have the seminary background and are not up to date on all the translation details.
For example, using John 5:3-5 as an example where verse 4 is omitted in some translations.
If I choose ESVS as the search Bible and display John 5:3-5 it won't have verse 4 which is fine. But if I add KJV as a parallel Bible it won't show 5:4 although it has. The KJV does have 5:4 and should be display.
Yes, I do understand this is the way Accordance have chosen to do it and I know you have your reasons for it. I know that what is displaying is a comparison of the text is common to the Bibles in Parallel. I have no problem with that.
May I suggest an alternative? What about giving me options? I am not saying the Accordance way is bad. I think is fine. I just would like options.
I would like to have the option to see it as image #1 (in addition to the accepted Accordance way). This allows me to see and read what is not included by the other translations. In the Accordance only way I would have to open a different zone with that Bible to see how the Bible that includes the verse says.
Also, implementing something like in image #2 would be great too to graphically and quickly see the differences.
To be honest, when I do parallel comparison between Bibles I switch to Logos just for this reason. I would love having options so I do not have to go someplace else.
