Hi there

I love the app you've produced. I particularly like that you can get the Septuagint in parallel with the MT. The issue I'm facing is that the Psalms in the Septuagint have a different numbering and they don't match up in the app. Maybe this is an easy fix?

Thanks smile_teeth

Hi David

Biblecrawler has a table (called "Versification") that handles the different verse systems. I just did a quick test for Psalm 51, and this worked as it should...

Ps 51:4(MT) = Ps 50:4(LXX) = Ps 51:2 in English translations.

(It works the same way on net.biblecrawler.org)

From your post, I gather that there must be a psalm (or psalms) where this is not working properly. Which one(s)?

Kind regards
Michael
