It would be nice to have Robert Alter's translation of the Hebrew Bible as an Accordance module.

 

http://books.wwnorto...-0-393-29249-7/

 

ISBN 978-0-393-29249-7

 

Here's how Norton, the publisher, describes it.

"A landmark event: the complete Hebrew Bible in the award-winning translation that delivers the stunning literary power of the original.

"A masterpiece of deep learning and fine sensibility, Robert Alter’s translation of the Hebrew Bible, now complete, reanimates one of the formative works of our culture. Capturing its brilliantly compact poetry and finely wrought, purposeful prose, Alter renews the Old Testament as a source of literary power and spiritual inspiration. From the family frictions of Genesis and King David’s flawed humanity to the serene wisdom of Psalms and Job’s incendiary questioning of God’s ways, these magnificent works of world literature resonate with a startling immediacy. Featuring Alter’s generous commentary, which quietly alerts readers to the literary and historical dimensions of the text, this is the definitive edition of the Hebrew Bible."

Helen,

 

Any idea on a range of dates we might expect this to be available in Accordance? I'd love to see it added! :)

 

 

Thanks,

 

Kurt

These things typically take months to license and prepare, no guesses yet.

Hopefully the digital edition won't have the same typo . . .

This is what happens when you're volleying between editing your text and browsing the web in two different windows, then forget which window you're in!
