The Chinese Union Version (Chin. 和合本, heheben) is now fully searchable by Strong's numbers in Accordance. This is a wonderful and much anticipated development for all Chinese or Chinese-ministry related users. Used by itself or in parallel with any Strong's-tagged original language text, the Chinese Union Version with Strong's Numbers module (CUVS) allows all the powerful searches that have been available for many years with the KJV in English.

I'll demonstrate a simple search that renders results instantaneously. In the CUVS NT the term gospel (Chin. 福音, fuyin) occurs 136 times, but how many of these render the Greek verb form (Greek εὐαγγελίζομαι, euangelizomai)? Before this module was released, one could get results by using the KJV with Strong's in one zone with the command "[KEY G2097]" and the Chinese Union Version in another zone with the command "[CONTENTS KJVS] <and> 福音". In the CUV zone the results highlight "福音" (gospel) in red and show all 42 hits in 38 verses.

In the CUVS NT the term gospel (Chin. 福音, fuyin) occurs 136 times, but how many of these render the Greek verb form (Greek εὐαγγελίζομαι, euangelizomai)? Before this module was released, one could get results by using the KJV with Strong's in one zone with the command "[KEY G2097]" and the Chinese Union Version in another zone with the command "[CONTENTS KJVS] <and> 福音". In the CUV zone the results highlight "福音" (gospel) in red and show all 42 hits in 38 verses.

Now with this new CUVS module one may do this command (i.e., "[KEY G2097] <and> 福音") directly from the Chinese Union Bible text. This process saves a great deal of screen space and time. The results are identical.

One unintended consequence of the way the text is coded, however, is that only the final character of the keyed Chinese word is highlighted in the results of a search. For example, searching for all instances of Greek euangelizomai with the command "[KEY G2097]" highlights only 音 (sound) in Luke 2:10; 3:18; 4:18; 9:6; 20:1, etc. (instead of, e.g., 福音 [gospel]). It is also not very consistent in what part of the expression is highlighted. For example, 传 (spread) is highlighted in Matt 11:5; Luke 4:43; Acts 8:12, etc. (instead of, e.g., (福)音 [gospel] as above). Sometimes, more than one word is highlighted, such as (好信)息 (good news) and (报)给 (give) in Luke 1:19 and (报)给 (give) and (信)息 (news) in Luke 2:10, even though only one occurrence of the Greek verb occurs in those verses. (This might explain the discrepancy of 55 hits with this search in the KJV with Strong's / GNT-Textus Receptus with Strong's as opposed to the 57 hits with the CUV with Strong's. Nevertheless, it is an amazing time saver to have at least one character of the rendering highlighted when doing any amount of searching.

One further improvement in this CUV with Strong's module over the CUV (without Strong's) is that this text includes all the parenthetical notes and textual comments! For example, at Matt 6:13 after 救我们脱离凶恶 (deliver us from evil) this new module includes the note (as in printed editions): "(或作:脱离恶者)" (or: deliver from the evil one). At the end of the same verse the note is present: "(有古卷没有因为……阿们等字)" (There are ancient manuscripts that do not have the words 'For' ... 'Amen'). In contrast, the CUV without Strong's merely has an asterisk at both places with no accompanying Notes file with this information.

All in all, this module is a must have for all Accordance users of the Chinese Union Version. It performs seamlessly with original language texts and offers all the complex search capabilities that English language users have been used to for years. It is hoped that some of the tagging might be improved in the future, but for the few searches I tried in comparison with other Strong's-tagged texts, I found it reasonably accurate.

Many thanks to Accordance developers for answering the calls of many users in the East who have been dreaming about having this module in Accordance for so many years!
