Along this line, I have a Hebrew text in OSIS.  The text in from 
Christopher Kimball's WLC, the Strong numbers are from Graham Nind.  
Each book is in a separate file, and the markup may not be exactly ready 
for module time, but it is available.  Zipped it comes to 2.38 MB.  If 
there's some place I could upload it, you are welcome to use it.

Morphology is another issue.  I have the Westminster Hebrew Morphology 
with the Hebrew Old Testament in WORDsearch, and I have the Complete 
Word Study Old Testament, with its morphological system, but neither is 
public domain.  Some system of morphological notation would be the first 
requirement.  Something suitable to Hebrew, and not just a rehash of 
Robinson.  And then enough people with access to appropriate resources 
for the input of the markup.
