we will use some bibles of the Sword project, and our project is targeted
primarily to the biblic language. I think it could be a good enhancement to
the Sword project, since it will supply additional study tools.
Imagine you can open a chapter of the bible in Hebrew, and see word by word
every possible meaning and translation. You could catch all the possible
nuances, and it is known that many things in the bible can be interpreted in
different ways.

 Kindest regards,

 Fabrizio Lanza - ULC-ITALIA
