Thank you for your ambition! I'm excited that you were persistent to
learn how to make SWORD modules. We could use more help in that area!
Concerning the ESV. We have a good relationship with Crossway and have
signed a contract allowing us to distribute the ESV worldwide for our
software (not a small challenge when another organization manages the
rights to distribute the ESV in the UK and the rest of Europe).
The module is completed with footnotes and cross-references. You can
try it out on our web software, as DM Smith has pointed out, at:
It should be available sometime in the next couple weeks.
Please don't distribute your module, as it would first, be illegal, and
second, possibly hinder our relationship with Crossway.
We need to do a better job communicating what is in the works, and this
is solely my fault. I hope to work on that this summer.
I look forward to any future contributions you might be able to make
with module creation, or fixing our unhelpful error messages!
