"Good program, however; it needs some improvements. "
Version: Daily Bread 5.2
I enjoy the calendar of special days, however; it seems to be inoperative in the test version.
It provides an ecumenical calendar of holidays but only supplies protestant bible translations. It does not supply a method to switch translations for a particular passage; if your preferred translation does not work for a particular passage see example below
Passage as provided in program:
"Though ye have lain among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove, covered with silver and her feathers with yellow gold" (Psalm 68:3 King James).
Context: King James
12 Kings and armies did flee apace, and she that tarried at home divided the spoil. 13 Though ye have lain among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove, covered with silver and her feathers with yellow gold. 14 When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was white as snow in Zalmon" (Psalm 68:3 King James).
Context: New American 1991(Not a translation used by program)
Psa 68:12 "The Lord announced the news of victory:
 (12-15) The Hebrew text upon which the translation is based has apparently suffered dislocation and has been substantially rearranged for sense. The version of the defeat of the kings differs from that in the book of Joshua, where the people play a significant role. Here God alone is responsible for the victory (though the actual battle is not described); Israel only gathers the spoils. God alone is the source of Israel's success; human effort is not important.
Psa 68:13 The kings and their armies are in desperate flight.
Psa 68:12 All you people so numerous,
Psa 68:14 will you stay by the sheepfolds?
Psa 68:13 b) Every household will share the booty,
Psa 68:14 b) perhaps a dove sheathed with silver,
Psa 68:14 c) its wings covered with yellow gold."
Psa 68:15 When the Almighty routed the kings there, the spoils were scattered like snow on Zalmon" (NAB 1991).
I suggest that the authors add the New American Bible and the New Jerusalem Bible and the Third Millennium Bible as well as to allow under options for passages from the Deuterconanonicals/Apocrypha.
