I have an English major’s obsession with proper citation, but know proper MLA style or footnotes (which aren’t easy to do with WordPress) would just clutter a blog. I’ll link to original sources in-text when I can or at least give author names. There are a few sources I’ll be quoting frequently, so I’ll list the full information for them here:
- Scripture quotations came from the New King James Version (chosen for easier reading) up though 2016. Now, I use the public domain Bibles cited below.
- Scripture quotations marked (KJV) are from the King James Version, 1987 printing. Public domain.
- Scripture quotations marked (LEB) are from the Lexham English Bible. Copyright 2012 Logos Bible Software. Lexham is a registered trademark of Logos Bible Software.
- Scripture quotation marked (WEB) are from the World English Bible. Public Domain. The name “World English Bible” is trademarked.
- My favorite Greek dictionary: Zodhiates, Spiros. The Complete WordStudy Dictionary: New Testament. Chattanooga: AMG Publishers, 1993.
- My favorite Hebrew dictionary: Hariss, Laird R., Gleason L. Archer, Jr., and Bruce K. Waltke. Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament. Chicago: Moody Publishers, 1980.
- Great commentary written way back in 1708-1710: Henry, Matthew. Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible (Complete). E-Sword Study Tools.
