If you only need the Greek poems you can download the following application (smaller in size):
Constantine P. Cavafy, also known as Konstantin or Konstantinos Petrou Kavafis, or Kavaphes (Greek: Κωνσταντίνος Π. Καβάφης) (April 29, 1863 – April 29, 1933) was a renowned Greek poet who lived in Alexandria and worked as a journalist and civil servant.
He is now considered one of the finest European and modern Greek poets. His poetry is taught at schools in mainland Greece and Cyprus, and at universities around the world.
E.M. Forster knew him personally and wrote a memoir of him, contained in his book "Alexandria". Forster, Arnold Toynbee, and T.S. Eliot were among the earliest promoters of Cavafy in the English-speaking world before the Second World War.
In the panorama of twentieth century poetry, Cavafis' work occupies a special place. Dark, lonely to the limit of self-segregation, but at the same time attracted by the Mediterranean vitality and openness, the neo-Hellenic poet refuses en block every aspect of his time, diving instead, with constant wonder, into the suggestions of mythological legends and ancient history.
The result of this literary operation is the continuous, desperate search for a mysterious and elusive Beauty, an evocation of hidden moments and loves sung now with violently sensual accents, now with heartfelt and nostalgic tones, mixed with a tragic vision of history as eternal struggle between men and destiny.

The King James Bible is the most printed book in the history of the world. Any so-called “1611” King James Version you buy today at the local Christian Bookstore is absolutely NOT the 1611. .. it is the 1769 Baskerville Birmingham revision, even though it admits that nowhere, and may even say “1611” in the front… it’s just not true. Prepare to be shocked! The spellings have been revised, and some words changed, in almost every printing done since 1769, and fourteen entire books plus extra prefatory features have been removed from almost every printing done since 1885!
The 1611 King James Bible was writen more than four hundred years ago when the English language was different. The original 1611 A.D. text, written in Early Modern English, shows the language in closer association with its Latin roots. Spelling was in Jacobean style which was not entirely standardized, but could be read phonetically. The original typeface was in Gothic style. Although both the typestyle and the older language may be considered difficult to read by some 21st Century English readers, the King James Version is recognized and respected for its beauty, cadence, and poetic feel.
English spelling differences in John 3:16
- U = V (Example: loued = loved; gauve = gave)
- y with 'e' above it was used as represent the 'thorn' character, which means 'the')
- nn (Sonne = Son)
Other spelling differences
- V = U (Example: vnto = unto | See John 1:11)
- VV = W (Example: svvord = sword) [The V was called a 'U', this is why we still call a W a 'double U']
- I = J (Example: Iesus = Jesus | See John 1:17)
- Long "s" letters look similar to "f" letters (Notice the 'Old Testament' type example on the right)
If You liked this book you can find version without advertisement in my applications: Scofield Reference Bible
For over 90 years people have relied on this reference work in their daily study of God's Word. Written originally in 1909, C. I. Scofield's intent was to provide a concise but complete tool that would meet the need of someone just beginning to read the Bible.
The Scofield Reference Bible contains very brief commentary, often consisting of no more than a few sentences and several cross-references. The brevity of the notes allowed Scofield's commentary to be included in the margins and footnotes in study Bibles, which countless Christians use as their primary study Bible.
The Scofield Reference Bible is a widely circulated study Bible edited and annotated by the American Bible student Cyrus I. Scofield, that popularized dispensationalism at the beginning of the 20th century. Published by Oxford University Press and containing the traditional, Protestant King James Version, it first appeared in 1909 and was revised by the author in 1917.
The Scofield Bible had several innovative features. Most important, it printed what amounted to a commentary on the biblical text alongside the Bible instead of in a separate volume. It also contained a cross-referencing system that tied together related verses of Scripture and allowed a reader to follow biblical themes from one chapter and book to another. Finally, the 1917 edition also attempted to date events of the Bible. It was in the pages of the Scofield Reference Bible that many Christians first encountered Archbishop James Ussher's calculation of the date of Creation as 4004 BC; and through discussion of Scofield's notes, which advocated the "gap theory," fundamentalists began a serious internal debate about the nature and chronology of creation.
The King James Version (KJV), commonly known as the Authorized Version (AV) or King James Bible (KJB), is an English translation of the Christian Bible for the Church of England begun in 1604 and completed in 1611. First printed by the King's Printer Robert Barker, this was the third translation into English to be approved by the English Church authorities.
James gave the translators instructions intended to guarantee that the new version would conform to the ecclesiology and reflect the episcopal structure of the Church of England and its belief in an ordained clergy. The translation was done by 47 scholars, all of whom were members of the Church of England. In common with most other translations of the period, the New Testament was translated from Greek, the Old Testament was translated from Hebrew text, while the Apocrypha were translated from the Greek and Latin.
The Biblical apocrypha (from the Greek word ἀπόκρυφος, apókruphos, meaning "hidden") denotes the collection of ancient books found, in some editions of the Bible, in a separate section between the Old and New Testaments or as an appendix after the New Testament. Although the term apocrypha had been in use since the 5th century, it was in Luther's Bible of 1534 that the Apocrypha was first published as a separate intertestamental section. Luther was making a polemical point about the canonicity of these books. As an authority for this division, he cited St. Jerome, who in the early 5th century distinguished the Hebrew and Greek Old Testaments, stating that books not found in the Hebrew were not received as canonical. Although his statement was controversial in his day, Jerome was later titled a Doctor of the Church and his authority was also cited in the Anglican statement in 1571 of the Thirty-Nine Articles.
King James Version
The English-language King James Version (KJV) of 1611 followed the lead of the Luther Bible in using an inter-testamental section labelled "Books called Apocrypha", or just "Apocrypha" at the running page header. The KJV followed the Geneva Bible of 1560 almost exactly (variations are marked below). The section contains the following:
1 Esdras (Vulgate 3 Esdras)
2 Esdras (Vulgate 4 Esdras)
Judith ("Judeth" in Geneva)
Rest of Esther (Vulgate Esther 10:4-16:24)
Ecclesiasticus (also known as Sirach)
Baruch and the Epistle of Jeremy ("Jeremiah" in Geneva) (all part of Vulgate Baruch)
Song of the Three Children (Vulgate Daniel 3:24-90)
Story of Susanna (Vulgate Daniel 13)
The Idol Bel and the Dragon (Vulgate Daniel 14)
Prayer of Manasses (follows 2 Chronicles in Geneva)
Included in this list are those books of the Clementine Vulgate that were not in Luther's canon. These are the books most frequently referred to by the casual appellation "the Apocrypha". These same books are also listed in Article VI of the Thirty-Nine Articles of the Church of England. Despite being placed in the Apocrypha, in the table of lessons at the front of some printings of the King James Bible, these books are included under the Old Testament.

Uno de los Comentarios Bíblicos más completos que se haya escrito en toda la historia de la literatura cristiana, es el de Matthew Henry, el célebre puritano inglés del siglo XVI, se enfocó en la exposición de la Palabra de Dios.
Su Comentario de toda la Biblia sigue siendo uno de los más usados por predicadores y estudiantes de las Escrituras, aunque hayan transcurrido casi tres siglos desde que se publicó la primera edición. ¿La razón fundamental? Su profundidad y enfoque.
El mejor comentario bíblico devocional escrito hasta la fecha, sobre el que Spurgeon afirmó: «Todo ministro de Dios debería leer el MATTHEW HENRY con plena atención por lo menos una vez.»
Matthew Henry (1662-1714) nacio en Broad Oak, en el condado gales de Flintshire. Su padre era clerigo. Fue ordenado en la Iglesia Presbiteriana Britanica donde sirvio en el pastorado de Chester 1687 a 1712. En 1704 Henry comenzo a escribir su comentario en forma de Notas del Nuevo Testamento, completandose esta obra monumental poco despues de su muerte, ocurrida en 1714.
Su teologia es un fiel testimonio de la verdad evangelica, enfatizando la depravacion total del hombre y la gracia soberana y salvadora de Dios. Su obra ademas, no solo demuestra una profunda capacidad de profundidad espiritual, sino la erudicion que proporciona un gran conocimiento del griego y del hebreo. Henry es recordado como pastor afectuoso, amante apasionado de la Palabra de Dios y hombre de gran integridad personal que ha dejado su huella en los corazones de innumerables cristianos que anhelan comprender mas profundamente las riquezas de las Escrituras.
If You liked this book you can find version without advertisement in my applications: The Expositor's Bible Pro
The Expositor's Bible is one of the most-recognized standards of expository commentaries. It was written by twenty-nine eminent scholars of the day who were also full-time preachers. These writers also represent every important branch of Protestantism. The Expositor's Bible may thus be regarded as an inter-denominational exposition. It conclusively demonstrates the hearty agreement of all thoughtful persons on the profound realities and essentials of the Christian Faith. It shows how this Faith is to be preached with the conviction and persuasiveness which its opulent gospel justly merits.
The Gold Medallion Award-winning Expositor’s Bible Commentary is a major contribution to the study and understanding of the Scriptures. Providing pastors and Bible students with a comprehensive and scholarly tool for the exposition of the Scriptures and the teaching and proclamation of their message, this work has become a staple of seminary and college libraries and pastors’ studies worldwide.

Antiguo Testamento Y Nuevo Testamento
Por 248 años la versión Reina-Valera no fue revisada en su totalidad. En 1708 y 1831 el Nuevo Testamento fue revisado, pero no fue sino hasta 1850 que se hizo una revisión completa. Este trabajo fue realizado por la Sociedad Bíblica Americana. Durante la última mitad del siglo XIX la Reina-Valera pasó por varias revisiones. La revisión de 1909 fue realizada por la Sociedad Bíblica Británica y Extranjera y es la que predominó en las iglesias evangélicas por 51 años. Hoy día todavía hay muchas personas y denominaciones que disfrutan la lectura de la versión 1909.
Una Biblia hermosa en la versión de Reina Valera 1909. Es la edición más antigua que circula en el medio eclesiástico evangélico de la reconocida y altamente apreciada versión Reina-Valera.
La Biblia, que es, los sacros libros del Viejo y Nuevo Testamento. Trasladada en español. La Palabra del Dios nuestro permanece para siempre. 1569, también conocida como la Biblia del Oso, es la primera traducción completa de la Biblia al castellano, publicada el 28 de septiembre de 1569. Su traductor fue Casiodoro de Reina. La Biblia del Oso es usualmente referida como Reina-Valera (RV) por haber hecho Cipriano de Valera la primera revisión de ella en 1602
Revisión de la Sociedad Bíblica Trinitaria
La Sociedad Bíblica Trinitaria está trabajando en un proyecto de revisión de la Reina-Valera versión 1909 (RV1909). El objetivo es aplicar, hasta donde sea posible, las estructuras de las oraciones y el vocabulario original empleados por Reina y Valera, pero aceptando las normas ortográficas actuales de la Real Academia Española y desechando aquellas palabras que han cambiado de significado. También se evita vincular a la Reina-Valera versión 1909 con las características particulares y lenguajes de otras traducciones. Se espera que el Nuevo Testamento revisado esté en circulación para 2014 en varios países.
The books can be broadly divided into the Pentateuch, which tells how God selected Israel to be his chosen people; the history books telling the history of the Israelites from their conquest of Canaan to their defeat and exile in Babylon; the poetic and "Wisdom" books dealing, in various forms, with questions of good and evil in the world; and the books of the biblical prophets, warning of the consequences of turning away from God. For the Israelites who were its original authors and readers these books told of their own unique relationship with God and their relationship with proselytes, but the overarching messianic nature of Christianity has led Christians from the very beginning of the faith to see the Old Testament as a preparation for the New Covenant and New Testament.
The New Testament consists of:
- four narratives of the life, teaching, and death of Jesus, called "gospels" (or "good news" accounts);
- a narrative of the Apostles' ministries in the early church, called the "Acts of the Apostles", and probably written by the same writer as the Gospel of Luke, which it continues;
- twenty-one letters, often called "epistles" in the biblical context, written by various authors, and consisting of Christian doctrine, counsel, instruction, and conflict resolution; and
- an Apocalypse, the Book of Revelation, which is a book of prophecy, containing some instructions to the seven local congregations of Asia Minor, but mostly containing prophetical symbology, about the end times.
If You liked this book you can find version without advertisement in my applications: Adam Clarke Commentary
Contained in 6 volumes, consisting of nearly 1,000 pages each, it was considered the most comprehensive commentary on the Bible ever prepared by one man.
Adam Clarke's monumental commentary on the Bible has been a standard reference work for over a century and has been widely used by men of all evangelical denominations. Its thorough and authoritative scholarship has been recognized by Arminians and Calvinists alike, and has won for the author the accolade, "Prince of Commentators."
The eminent British scholar began his work on the commentary with the New Testament on May 1, 1798. This section was first published in 1810. Though hampered by failing eyesight, Clarke continued with his work on the Old Testament, which he completed March 28, 1825. The entire commentary in eight volumes was published the following year.
Clarke spent the rest of his life in revising his original work. At the close of Revelation he inscribed these words: "Finished correcting for a new edition, Jan. 9, 1832." Only a few months later he passed away.
Adam Clarke (1760 or 1762 - 1832) was a British Methodist theologian and Biblical scholar. He is chiefly remembered for writing a commentary on the Bible which took him 40 years to complete and which was a primary Methodist theological resource for two centuries.
