I would be willing to personally donate a copy of Adobe Acrobat Capture, 
Personal Edition (20,000 page license) to God's work of converting 
Copyright-free/permission-granted Biblical texts into unencumbered freely 
distributable online form if anyone here would seriously be able to put it 
to good use.....  As an employee I am able to purchase up to 5 copies of 
this product per year for a substantial discount.  If anyone's trying to 
profit off of me from it they can jolly well pay the regular price for it 
<grin> and help my stock options in the process <wink> but when I freely 
receive I want to freely give, and when I see others freely giving that's 
who I want to give back to.

See http://www.adobe.com/products/acrcapture/main.html for more info.
