The Christian Noob (n00b)

psychotic for Lenten, day 14 & me nerd

ashes to ashes, dust to dustI always have something to say — good or bad. I’m never satisfied. As such, my favorite Bible system’s SWORD by the CrossWire Bible Society. I currently run Xiphos for Linux and Windows with modules for

  1. Bibles
    1. Geneva Bible (1599),
    2. King James Version (1769) with Strongs Numbers and Morphology,
    3. Londona Biblio (in Esperanto)
    4. and Orthodox Jewish Brit Chadasha (OJB)
  2. Dictionaries
    1. Hitchcock’s Bible Names
    2. Strong’s Greek Dictionary of Bible Words
    3. Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary of Bible Words
  3. Glossaries
    1. Ergane Esperanto to English Glossary

I also used SWORD on BlackBerry (Go Bible KJV & Apocrypha) when I used that OS.

Now the problem (for me, at least) is that there’s no version for Android. The best alternative’s YouVersion since it allows to save full translations of the Bible locally — currently in my phone.

  1. King James Version (KJV),
  2. New International Version (NIV)
  3. and Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

The Android build’s been buggy for the past three versions at least. First it’d hang looking for an internet connection as if there was no exemption routine to escape the loop of continuous error messages.

Now the latest version calls classes on boot that crashes, tries to restart only to crash again — about five times in a row.

In any case, the following comes from the Lent devotional from FAPC. Hopefully it helps or makes sense of my previous nonsense and rant.

“1 Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 Go and cry in the ears of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the Lord; I remember thee, the kindness of thy youth, the love of thine espousals, when thou wentest after me in the wilderness, in a land that was not sown. 3 Israel was holiness unto the Lord, and the firstfruits of his increase: all that devour him shall offend; evil shall come upon them, saith the Lord. 4 Hear ye the word of the Lord, O house of Jacob, and all the families of the house of Israel: 5 Thus saith the Lord, What iniquity have your fathers found in me, that they are gone far from me, and have walked after vanity, and are become vain? 6 Neither said they, Where is the Lord that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, that led us through the wilderness, through a land of deserts and of pits, through a land of drought, and of the shadow of death, through a land that no man passed through, and where no man dwelt? 7 And I brought you into a plentiful country, to eat the fruit thereof and the goodness thereof; but when ye entered, ye defiled my land, and made mine heritage an abomination. 8 The priests said not, Where is the Lord? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit. 9 Wherefore I will yet plead with you, saith the Lord, and with your children’s children will I plead. 10 For pass over the isles of Chittim, and see; and send unto Kedar, and consider diligently, and see if there be such a thing. 11 Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit. 12 Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be ye very desolate, saith the Lord. 13 For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.
29 Wherefore will ye plead with me? ye all have transgressed against me, saith the Lord. 30 In vain have I smitten your children; they received no correction: your own sword hath devoured your prophets, like a destroying lion. 31 O generation, see ye the word of the Lord. Have I been a wilderness unto Israel? a land of darkness? wherefore say my people, We are lords; we will come no more unto thee? 32 Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number.”
(Jeremiah 2:1-13, 29-32 KJV)

And now for the nerds out there who might want to check out or the off-line SWORD module for Xiphos.

“1 Kaj aperis al mi la vorto de la Eternulo, dirante: 2 Iru kaj prediku al la oreloj de Jerusalem, dirante: Tiele diras la Eternulo: Mi memoras la piecon de via juneco, la amon de via fiancineco, kiam vi sekvis Min en la dezerto, en lando ne prisemita. 3 Izrael tiam estis sanktajo de la Eternulo, Lia unua frukto; ciuj, kiuj mangis gin, estis kondamnitaj, malbono venis sur ilin, diras la Eternulo. 4 Auskultu la vorton de la Eternulo, ho domo de Jakob kaj ciuj familioj de la domo de Izrael. 5 Tiele diras la Eternulo: Kian maljustajon viaj patroj trovis en Mi, ke ili malproksimigis de Mi kaj sekvis vantajon kaj mem vantigis? 6 Kaj ili ne diris: Kie estas la Eternulo, kiu elkondukis nin el la Egipta lando, kiu kondukis nin tra dezerto, tra lando de stepoj kaj kavoj, tra lando seka kaj malluma, tra lando, kiun neniu trapasis kaj kie neniu logis? 7 Kaj Mi venigis vin en landon fruktodonan, por ke vi mangu giajn fruktojn kaj bonajojn; sed vi venis kaj malpurigis Mian landon, kaj Mian heredajon vi faris abomenindajo. 8 La pastroj ne diris: Kie estas la Eternulo? la legokompetentuloj ne atentis Min, la pastistoj perfidis Min, la profetoj profetis per Baal kaj sekvis idolojn. 9 Pro tio Mi ankorau procesos kun vi, diras la Eternulo, kaj kun la filoj de viaj filoj Mi procesos. 10 Car iru sur la insulojn de la Kitidoj kaj rigardu, sendu al la Kedaridoj kaj esploru bone kaj rigardu, cu tie estas farita io simila. 11 Cu ia popolo sangis siajn diojn, kvankam ili ne estas dioj? sed Mia popolo sangis sian gloron je idoloj. 12 Miregu pri tio, ho cielo, sentu teruron kaj forte konsternigu, diras la Eternulo. 13 Car du malbonagojn faris Mia popolo: Min ili forlasis, la fonton de viva akvo, por elhaki al si putojn, truhavajn putojn, kiuj ne povas teni akvon.
29 Kial vi volas disputi kun Mi? vi ciuj defalis de Mi, diras la Eternulo. 30 Vane Mi frapis viajn infanojn, ili ne akceptis la moralinstruon; via glavo ekstermis viajn profetojn, kiel furioza leono. 31 Ho generacio, atentu la vorton de la Eternulo! Cu Mi estis por Izrael dezerto au lando malluma? Kial do Mia popolo diras: Ni mem estas sinjoroj, ni ne plu iros al Vi? 32 Cu virgulino forgesas sian ornamon, au fiancino sian cirkauligon? sed Mia popolo Min forgesis jam de tempo nekalkulebla.”
(Jeremia 2:1-3, 29-32 Londona Biblio)

I’m a fucking nerd even with my so-called faith.
