I'm not at all sure about this version, partly because it is a bit ponderous to read, and also because it is the work of only one person rather than a group of translators.  Michael mentions the WEB version as having the extra books - the Sword module I can find contains only the 66 book canon.  Is there anything else out there please?

As an example, 4 Maccabees is ignored completely ....  there are a host of other unsupported verses.  I wonder if there is any chance someone could add a WEBA versification (or explain to me very gently how to make one?)  Chris Little maybe?
