One more site in addition to Greekbible.com: Blueletterbible.org

Sunday, July 25, 2010

Greekbible.com has been the site I've always gone to when taking a look at the original text for a certain passage, but today I came across a site that does the same thing but in much more detail called Blueletterbible.org. The existence of this site certainly isn't news for Biblical scholars but it is for me, hence the post on it today.

The example linked to where I first found out about it was this one, originating from a discussion on what the original text in the "if someone asks you to go a mile, go two" means - whether the original Greek actually means a mile, or some other unit. This is a good example as Blueletterbible.org gives the meaning and pronunciation of each word right away whereas Greekbible.com requires one to click on each word to see the meaning in a pop-up window, but at the same time Greekbible.com gives the definition of the word for mile (milion), which is:

μίλιον,n \{mil'-ee-on}
1) a mile, among the Romans the distance of a thousand paces or eight stadia, about 1.5 km [somewhat less than our mile]
Also, Blueletterbible.org has the text and reading of the Old Testament as well, whereas Greekbible.com is for the NT only.
