Help for finding the headings file of the Portuguese Bible ARC1911 (or Scofield Reference Bible) and modifying its contents


Dear friends,

I want to create a headings file for my Portuguese Bible module LTT-2009. I would prefer to piggy back on some existing headings file and make many amendations or additions to it.

I looked for the following headings files (*.hdgn.twm), in order of preference:

a) ARC-1911 (Almeida Revista e Corrigida)
b) Scofield Reference Bible (the original one, for the KJB-1611)
c) Darby
d) Wilbur Pickering NT

But I could not find any of them.

Could you, please help me to find a? or b? or c? or d?

I never worked with any thing in the line of SQLite. Is there a way thar allows me to work with a .txt file, then automaticallu transform it into a SQLite file?

For example, I would pick Mt 3:1, that reads
40;3;1 John, the Baptizer

and I would modify it to
40;3;1 João, o Submersor

then some kind or software would transform it in SQLite.

Get the Importer tool from this page. ... &l=english
Make sure you have the ARC-1911 Bible installed and have already used it in theWord so it makes a headings index ARC-1911xxxxxxxxxxxx.idx3 file in your Cache folder of theWord data folder. C:\ProgramData\The Word

Now you are ready to use the importer tool to merge the headings file .idx3 to the ARC-1911.ont, which will actually make a copy with the extension ont.out in the same folder as the original.
Run the Importer tool.
Go to Utils tab.
Click Browse... by the "Apply chapter headings to .ont file"
Open the Bible you want headings merged to. Then in next window, open the .idx3 file.
A new Bible file will be made as mentioned above.
Rename the original and output files, so you have just the one new Bible file with headings<TS>xxx x xxx x xxxxxx<Ts> where you can edit the data between these tags.

Thank you so much, brother JG

1) I already have the ARC1911.ont (.ont , not .ontx).

For example, I open it with editor Sublime Text and,
line 151, corresponding to Gn 6:13,
starts with a Portuguese title (that, today, is wrong Portuguese)
<TS>Deus annuncia o diluvio a Noé.<Ts>
(in English, that would be "God announces the Flood to Noah")

2) I have not much experience with using regular expressions et cetera, and, at age 74, I start to be slow to learn and get a command of using new technical things.
If you (or someone else) would be so kind as to given me step-by-step instructions on how

2a) I should use regex and a text editor to parse the arc1911.ont file, extract just the headings, and put them, one per line, into a .txt file
such as
151 <TS>Deus anuncia o Dilúvio a Noé.<Ts>
161 <TS>Noé e sua família entram na arca.<Ts>

2b) then, even manually (it would be nice if it could be automatized), I could substitute the line numbers by BookNumber, ChapterNumber, VerseNumber
1,6,13, Deus anuncia o Dilúvio a Noé. (Gn,6,13)
1,7,1, Noé e sua familia entram na arca. (Gn,7,11)

2c) finally, how could I transform this file into SQLite?

2d) I suppose this SQLite file could be be distributed by TheWord and named after the Bible I translated, that is, named LTT.portuguese.hdgs.twm.

2e) As the present file ARC1911.ont is in old Portuguese and spelling changed since then, and as I will modify almost every heading not only for the new spelling but also to be more precise, and as no other Portuguese bible has headings in TheWord, I would be delighted if TheWord would rename LTT.portuguese.hdgs.twm to become

God bless you, JG

Here is the headings file you can edit. I will make a headings file from the altered file when you have completed it.
Sorry it is just numbers

Bible book number;Chapter number;verse number;Heading Text

Wonderful, JG. I opened the file. Exactly what I needed.
It will take me some days, perhaps weeks, but I will work in every spare time I can find.
Thank you so much for the help you offered.
God bless you.

Pardon me, pardon me, Brother JG.

It took me much longer than I thought to prepare my file with section heading for Portuguese Bibles, though I worked every hour I could spare in the last 4 months (since your generous offer in your post on May 06).

The problem was that I found out that many of the 1913 headings for subsections of the Portuguese Bible ARC1911 were imprecise, faulty, and even very bad (unacceptably bad, at least for my taste).

Then, I worked as hard as I could and prepared 2257 headings for subsections of the Portuguese Bible LTT (the one that took me 20 years to translate), where LTT means "Literal, do Texto Tradicional") ("Literal, of the Traditional Text" (Massoretic + Receptus)).

So, I beg you to help me by taking one of the files appended
LTT_Titles.docx, LTT_Titles.htm

and preparing/adapting the necessary modules, in order that:
- My Bible named LTT may be seens with the headings;
- All the other portuguese Bibles that do not have headings may be seen with my headings, if the user so desires.

If at all possible, please preserve the formating as it is in the .htm file (boldface, italics, underline, superscript). If this is not possible, then you may transform in pure text .txt, no information will be lost, just a bit of emphasis here and there.

I will be forever endebted to you, brother JG.

I pray God will bless you in spirit, body, family, work and ministries.

Thank you so very much, Brother JG.

Everything is working perfectly:
I just unziped your file,
run Portuguese.LTT.hdgs.twm,
marked "If the module doesn't have , then run "the alternative titles"
chose "Portuguese LTT Headings" as the "Alternative Titles"

and voialá, the LTT Headings appear in every Bible module that does not have headings.

Thank you so very much for so valuable help.

Sometime in the next year, if Brother Rúbio helps me, I hope to update LTT and will include the headings in the ontx module.


Please, make the Portuguese.LTT.hdgs.twm widely and freely available for all.

God bless you.
