In the name of the LORD, the Everlasting God
--Genesis 21,33

JPS 1917 Bible for the Palm Pilot

This is our MTR Palm-Pilot version of the Jewish Publication Society's 1917 edition of the Hebrew Bible in English, as found elsewhere on this site.

NOTE: These files require the iSilo Palm Pilot reader; the TealDoc reader cannot read these files, but the iSilo reader can read TealDoc files.

This edition of the Hebrew Bible is based on the electronic text (c) by Larry Nelson (P.O. Box 1681, Cathedral City, CA 92234 USA, nelsonlarry@juno.com) as found on the Internet in differing copies. In addition to converting his text to HTML, we did correct a few typographical errors, based mostly on comparing the various text versions we found, and took out all of the paragraph marks (¶), which were not based on the Hebrew original. We have added signs for the paragraphs found in the original Hebrew: In the poetical books of Psalms, Job (aside from the beginning and end), and Proverbs, each verse normally starts on a new line; where there is a new line within a verse, we added {N}, and when there is a blank line, we added {P}. In the rest of the books, we added {S} for setumah (open space within a line) and {P} for petuHah (new paragraph on new line) according to our Hebrew Bible). We have not tried to reproduce the complex structure of the special songs such as in Exodus 15 and Deuteronomy 32, as we do not think that that would make sense in English.

Be sure not to forget to get the iSilo Palm Pilot reader for browsing our files, before trying to use them. You now have two choices: either download the latest version from the iSilo site or the old iSilo free version from here. The old free version cannot do global searches and cannot use the extra memory on expansion cards found on the newer machines. The latest version, on the other hand, can do these things and more, even if not paid for (for details on additional features, see the iSilo site); but it is a "trial version" ($20 shareware) that will automatically turn itself into a freeware version after 30 days use, if no registration code is entered.
