One of the most accurate English translations that I have encountered is Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (Kregel Publications). Joseph Bryant Rotherham was both a Hebrew and Greek scholar that faithfully "emphasized" the original meaning of the Old and New Testaments.

It would be wonderful to have the Emphasized Bible in Accordance, with the same emphatic marks that Rotheram used (e.g., |text within vertical lines shows strong emphasis|) as in the statement Jesus made in the Matthew 5:3:

||Happy|| the destitute |in spirit.|
(Where the primary emphasis is on "happy" and the secondary emphasis is on "in spirit.")

Also, Rotherham did a superb job of tranlating Hebrew and Greek words into English.

Any chance that the Emphasized Bible might become an Accordance module?
