BibleWorks is committed to correcting problems and providing a quality product. Ongoing corrections to these databases and our other versions are posted to our web site on a regular basis. They are free to download for registered BibleWorks users. Serious scholars will want to cross-check final conclusions with the standard printed reference works.
