What is Eloquent for Mac

Eloquent is a free and open-source application for research and study of the Bible. It is developed specifically for Mac computers running Mac OS X.

Eloquent allows you to read and browse many different bibles translations in different languages from Hebrew to Albanian. As well as reading devotionals, commentaries, dictionaries and lexicons, it also supports searching and advanced features such as services so that you can access the Bible in any program.

And because Eloquent is based on the Sword project, it is compatible with a growing collection of over 200 texts available in over 50 languages.

Really really good Bible app - I prefer it to Logos. Manfred is a good guy - he seems a little serious, but he's a good guy. I asked him about "MacSword" which is my go-to Bible app, and he was quick to point out that Eloquent is just as good, and that conversation brought me back to the app. I also discovered the ability to copy and paste text into the user module for a customized commentary. I copy and paste my epub NAC, chapters of Isaiah here and there depending on what I'm working on, and it keeps track of it verse by verse. Something that's hard to find in other Sword project apps. Does anyone know where to find MacSword online anymore? Or if it's being kept up? Just kidding, Manfred!

Hi Manfred, Can you help me with Strong's Hebrew Numbers that no longer work. I deleted something else, then lost the function. I tried to remove and redownload the whole app again, but it appears to remember me and when I check to update the module, it tells me I have it, so cannot reinstall it. I tired removing and reloading it, but nothing seems to work.

Overall I'm glad this exists, but one problem I had suggested to fix years ago is still there in the latest version. It still does not let one pre-select the Highlighted Text Color for a Bookmark or remember the color choice for it. In the main Preference Pane there should be a checkbox and selector for Bookmark Text Color or the Bookmark Edit Pane should remember the settings As is, one needs to check the Highlight box and select the color each time the Bookmark Edit pane opens. I don't know if this is too complicated, but maybe check how some Firefox Highlighting plugs handle this so elegantly. There is also a problem that I can't bookmark at all, unless I click each verse to open in a separate window, which is not the case in v.2.2.12.

Who is making decisions in programming of this software? It's really going downhill! The new name "Eloquent" instead of the nice old MacSword is plain ugly and without any biblical meaning. The new icon of the program is extremely ugly. Version 2.3.5 is still massively bug ridden, extremely slow even if you only have the standard KJV bible installed and nothing else. Try search! Unbelievable slooow, even when it grabs the power of both CPU cores shortly before the beach ball of death comes. In comparison to MacSword 1.4.4 which I still use Eloquent 2.3.5 is pure junk. MacSword 1.4.4 is very fast even with dozens of bibles and commentaries installed. Search is very quick. Sometimes it crashes, but it's a nice program. I'm not gonna try Eloquent anymore, it's a dead end with no future. If MacSword 1.4.4 stops working I will move on to another bible software. Be warned! Instead of Eloquent load the old MacSword 1.4.4 from their website. It still runs on OSX 10.6 (and should on Lion)! BTW: MacUpdate should update to the new icon of Eloquent!

This might be a bit harsh, but MacSword 2 simply doesn't work. The GUI is totally unintuitive, illogical and very hard to use. Nothing works like expected. The Search function doesn't work at all. The program crashes all the time (hangs with beach ball). Parallel views of bibles is not synchronous. Scrolling sucks. This program is not even an Alpha release. Totally useless. And it is totally slow on a Intel Duocore with 2,4 Ghz (MacSword 1 is light-speed fast). Developer: Scrap MacSword 2 and restart working on MacSword 1 again. I am using MacSword 1.4.4 and I'm very happy with that great software!
