The Greek New Testament, Nestle-Aland 26th edition 1979. The UBS Greek New Testament, 3rd edition 1975. This text is based on the basic Greek text underlying most modern English translations since 1881, including the New American Standard and New International Versions. Certain words within the Nestle text proper are enclosed in square brackets [ ] or double brackets [[ ]]. These reflect those places where the critical text editors consider the inclusion or omission of such text to be in question.


This text is only available for NON-COMMERCIAL personal/scholarly and educational use.

Source Material

The source of the text is a Center for Computer Analysis of Texts (CCAT) database. The files I used can be found at Biola’s Unbound Bible and the same line-per-word plaintext database corrected and amplified by James Tauber.


About the Text

This BBL module contains the text with diacritcal marks and punctuation, but not the critical apparatus. You may want to use this in conjunction with the e-Sword module GNT-V for basic textual criticism, but I recommend you buy a hardcopy of the UBS4, with the dictionary.


The Nestle-Aland text and the United Bible Society text were standardized. The NA26/27 & UBS4 use the same text with variations only in punctuation, such as how indirect discourse with τι is rendered. For more information on such differences, see the Preface to the UBS 4th Edition.


Password Protection

Because this text is provided based on the work of others, this BBL module is password protected in keeping with the requirement to control access to the supplied materials per the CCAT user agreement. Please feel free to contact me on any mistakes you may find.


Modifications to the Text

I have not modified the text except in the way that { and } are rendered in the text.

Because { and } are used in RichText Format, I have either changed them to "-" or "," or removed them or, in a few cases, "(" and ")".

For text surrounded by a single bracket [ ], I have rendered the text as 50% grey and italics.

For text surrounded by double brackets [[ ]], I have rendered the text as purple (but not italics).

Also, I did not catch the missing "final sigma" until after the module was done.  I am not likely to update it... sorry.
