I was reading Sirach 19 in NETS, and noticed verses in brackets and italics. I wanted to see how they were translated in NABRE, the NABRE notes "Other ancient texts read as vv (or v) 18, 19; 21, etc" (not 20b, also in NETS) but the text of said verses is absent. The verse numbers are links, but instant details is blank when hovering over them. Clicking the link does not produce the missing text.
These variant verses do appear in the print edition of NABRE. They also are found in Göttingen Sirach (but not Ralph's nor Swete).
They are found in the print notes of the New Jerusalem, but alas, Accordance has never had the NJB Notes (I suspect they were never supplied in the electronic text). I have asked for those before, but see little hope of seeing them.
I did report one instance of this phenomena via Report a Correction, but this appears to be a global issue in the NABRE Notes module as related to Sirach (e.g., Sir 20:32). I do not know how difficult it would be to add the missing text. I wonder if it was in the supplied e-text (given the recent provenance of this translation, it would be surprising if it was not part of the e-text).
Please consider revising NABRE Notes to include the missing variant text.
