I am sorry to say that I have found so far 4 hypertext errors in the commentaries on Carasik's volume on Numbers verse 2 and these at the beginning the Numbers volume.  These 4 hypertexts which only consist of chapter and verse do not to mention the biblical book attached to the chapter and verses and are bringing up the wrong biblical book repeatedly.  

Is anyone proofreading these scriptural hypertexts??

 

Another example:The citation below is bringing up a verses from GENESIS instead of NUMBERS

 

The counting was not completed on a single day, though, which is why v. 19

This page is worth checking out, too--offers a projected date of 2018 for Genesis.

What little I've used of the Deuteronomy book (in print) has been very impressive. Gordon and/or Rick, I'll be glad to hear about any updates (presumably an update might come on this thread) on the hypertexting issues Gordon mentions. Glad to see these in Accordance.

We'll be fixing them globally and updating the modules very quickly. Sorry that our testers missed this, but it will be a quick fix. There is no need to send in more reports before we update.

Thanks Helen.  The number of hypertext scriptural verse corrections that need to be made just in Numbers 1 alone are quite numerous.

Helen, Thanks for the update although even after the update, I discovered at least one error that needs correction and have reported it.

 

On Numbers 1:45 in the quote from Nahmanides

 

He wounds, but His hands heal” (Job 12:23 and 5:18).

Michael Carasik, Numbers (The Commentators’ Bible; Accordance electronic ed. Philadelphia: The Jewish Publication Society, 2011), n.p.

 

The hypertext 5:18 brings up a quote from Numbers but it is a quote from JOB 5:18

And there will be many more... As in all tools, it is a challenge to know where a reference without the book name belongs. We write scripts to identify them but either way we do it, from the verse on which the comment is made, or from the last book cited, we are going to miss some and get some wrong. We correct the reported ones from time to time.

 

Please do not report them here, just send in the Report a Correction as you already did.

The new Commentators' Bible often looks at the OLJPS (old JPS translation of the Hebrew Bible) in explicating the Biblical text.  Unfortunately, Accordance does not have the OLJPS available as a download. (Btw, another prominent Bible software company has it as a free download since, I believe, it is in the public domain). However, if you go the http://www.mechon-ma...rg/e/et/et0.htm you can find the OLJPS translation and copy and paste at your pleasure.  You can even copy and paste whole Biblical books at once and turn them into Tools on your accordance.
