Eliminating theWord Bible text brackets

Eliminating theWord Bible text brackets. Tip: How do you get rid of the square brackets in the Bible texts? (Also when copying and pasting?)

Eph 1:2 Grace [be] to you, and peace, from God our Father, and [from] the Lord Jesus Christ.

As you see in this example, these words are added words by the translators. Depending on your view of these things and what version of the Bible you are using, this can be distracting. The more modern version play rough with the original text and they, in general, don’t mind changing the exact words to something similar, so this is not even appearing in those Bible versions. For the Bible versions that try to maintain a one-to-one correspondence, this can appear in these more biblically true texts.

Buy me Burrito!
Burritos are delicious. Meat, beans, sour cream, veggies, wrapped in a tortilla. We all enjoy burritos! But you know that you cannot have what is good without somebody paying for it. If you have enjoyed things on my website, please consider helping me maintain the expenses of this site. Consider at least a one time donation to this ministry of $10 or $20 dollars? Very infrequently (one person every 3-6 months) will somebody donate something. Usually that is all I receive from 34 websites! Yet, from my download statistics, I have about 96 gigabytes total being downloaded monthly from all of these websites. Be a blessing to me and donate any amount. It would be really great if you could gift me and my wife (who splits a burrito?) this money so that we could enjoy eating out at least once in a while. (I pay the expenses for these sites out of our living expenses.) God will richly bless you and repay you for your generosity. 1 Timothy 5:18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward. If you received some value from my websites, consider at least a small donation. A big donation would really be nice, too, though.

  1. Thank you for your diligent work for the Lord.
    After downloading several modules the two windows at the bottom of the screen seem strange.
    The bottom left window has two tabs for “My Subject Notes”
    The bottom right window has two tabs for “My Verse Notes”
    How did I do that and How can I fix it so I only have one tab for each?
    A second problem: I don’t seem to find any maps.
    Because of Calvary,

    1. First thing is that it is showing up in the tabs because the particular module layout set you are using have them defined there. See my post on Module Layout Sets (sidebar) to get into that and fix it. Your problem has one of two reasons: 1) there are physically two files with that same filename, or 2) in your module set, you have the same file dragged twice from the left side to the center window (in the module layout set). First, right click on each of the modules and go into module properties, and there note the actual module filename and path. If they are the same, then it is because of reason (above) number 2, otherwise reason number 1.

      Go into module layout set and remove one of each, or both if you don’t want to see these modules or use them.
