The Unicode/XML Westminster Leningrad Codex at
has been updated to Version 4.14 of the Westminster Leningrad Codex
(WLC) maintained by the J. Alan Groves Center for Advanced Biblical
Research by Kirk E. Lowery and Stephen K. Salisbury. This version was
received 1 July 2010 and contains 16 changes in vowels, 49 changes in
accents, and 60 changes in morphological divisions.
The transcription notes of the WLC have been significantly changed. One
type of note (t) has been removed and 6 new types of notes (k, n, v, C,
P, V) have been added to improve specificity. Notes C, P, V indicate
differences with the Biblia Hebraica Quinta (BHQ). The number of
transcription notes has been reduced from 1093 to 1034 by these changes.
The geresh markers (׳) surrounding notes have neen eliminated; compound
notes are comma-separated.
The Hebrew text is now available in text files without markup in
addition to the existing files with XML markup. The files are available
by clicking on the book name on the Home page and then clicking on the
"View the ... file." link on the resulting page. The text files are an
official repository of the Groves Center for the Westminster Leningrad
Codex in Unicode.
Please report any anomalies so they can be repaired quickly.
