The ETCBC Advanced database of the Hebrew Bible (formerly known as WIVU database), contains the scholarly text of the Hebrew Bible with linguistic markup developed by the Werkgroep Informatica at the Free University (WIVU) of Amsterdam and edited by Eep Talstra of the Eep Talstra Centre for Bible and Computer (ETCBC).

Eep Talstra was the founder of the Eep Talstra Centre for Bible and Computer. The centre was previously known as the Werkgroep Informatica Vrije Universiteit (WIVU), was renamed in honor of Eep Talstra when he retired in 2012.

The Eep Talstra Center for Bible and Computer focuses not only on Hebrew and Greek sources, but also on Syriac literature.

This product contains separate files for:

  • Hebrew Masoretic Text (MT-ETCBC)
  • Syntax file (MT-ETCBC.syntax)
  • Gloss file (MT-E words)
  • ETCBC Glossary.pdf (This file can be found in "Documentation" under Help > Read Mes and is also available for separate download)

An evaluation by Oliver Glanz
Assistant Professor of Old Testament, Andrews University

Having the ETCBC Hebrew database implemented in Accordance adds a substantial further argument why Accordance is very dedicated to the actual work of the biblical scholar. If you need the most powerful tool for searching not only morphological data but high-quality syntactical and text-grammatical data within the Hebrew Bible, it is now possible with the ETCBC in Accordance. The ETCBC database is well known among Old Testament scholars as it delivers most coherent and consistent data analysis on all levels of grammatical analysis (morphology, phraseology, syntax, text-grammar). Dozens of PhD student, post-doctoral researchers, and million funded research projects are using the ETCBC as their main tool of analysis. This fine database has been produced by the Eep Talstra Centre of Bible and Computing at the Free University of Amsterdam with many international scholars over a period of 30 years. Several of my colleagues and students are now excited to use the ETCBC in Accordance. The ETCBC search capabilities in Accordance are far beyond that what Logos or Bibleworks offer. Congratulations to Accordance for working so well together with the German Bible Society and the ETCBC research group to make this happen!

The preparation of this database for Accordance was possible only through the dedication and skill of Mikhal Oren ז"ל.
