If you install basic Sword 1.5.9, you will get the "diatheke" command
line tool, which is a simple way to make queries out of installed
Sword modules.  Do that, then use "installmgr" to bring in whatever
modules you want to be able to reference, and experiment with the
command line options diatheke provides for access to the texts.
