In the name of the LORD, the Everlasting God
--Genesis 21,33

Bible for the Palm Pilot

There are now two versions of the Hebrew Bible for the Palm Pilot: The first is our masoretic Hebrew text of the Bible according to the Aleppo Codex and the other manuscripts close to it; it is a conversion of our Hebrew Bible in masoretic spelling (this is in the classical spelling as in printed Bibles--without the vowels, however, which are not yet generally supported on the Palm Pilot). The second is our modern full-spelling version of the Hebrew Bible; it is a conversion of our Hebrew Bible in full spelling (this is in the modern spelling as found in books and newspapers, which is easier for non-experts to read, but generally not according to the tastes of Bible experts).

If you want a Palm Pilot version of our Hebrew Bible in English according to the JPS 1917 Edition, try our JPS Palm Bible.

NOTE: These files require both Hebrew support and the iSilo Palm Pilot reader; the TealDoc reader cannot read these files, but the iSilo reader can read TealDoc files.

There are two Hebrew versions here, because we discovered that there are two somewhat different systems of Hebrew support for the Palm Pilot with slightly different handing of our texts; until a single standard is adopted, we are providing files for each system separately. You should take care to get what is right for your Palm Pilot's Hebrew support. If you are not sure what to get, just try getting a file from either system and check how the braces {x} look: if they look OK (not backwards like }x{), you got the right kind of file; if not, you got the wrong kind and need to download the other kind of file.

By the way, the letters in braces are symbols of paragraphing according to the masorah, which are critical in the validity of a Torah scroll (we use English names of the Hebrew letters, so that Hebrew support is not needed in your browser here):

Be sure not to forget to get the iSilo Palm Pilot reader for browsing our files, before trying to use them. You now have two choices: either download the latest version from the iSilo site or the old iSilo free version from here. The old free version cannot do global searches and cannot use the extra memory on expansion cards found on the newer machines. The latest version, on the other hand, can do these things and more, even if not paid for (for details on additional features, see the iSilo site); but it is a "trial version" ($20 shareware) that will automatically turn itself into a freeware version after 30 days use, if no registration code is entered.

The individual files and their sizes are given below by order of their appearance in our Bible (other Bible versions may differ):
