    Summary: Westminster Leningrad Codex for SWORD
    This text began as an electronic transcription by Whitaker and Parunak
    of the 1983 printed edition of Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS).
    The transcription is called the Michigan-Claremont electronic text and
    was archived at the Oxford Text Archive (OTA) in 1987. Since that
    time, the text has been modified to conform to the photo-facsimile of
    the Leningrad Codex, Firkovich B19A, residing at the Russian National
    Library, St. Petersberg; hence the change of name. This version
    contains all 6 of the textual elements of the OTA document:
    consonants, vowels, cantillation marks, "paragraph" (pe, samekh)
    markers, and ketib-qere variants. Morphological divisions have been
    The BHS so-called "paragraph" markers (pe and samekh) do not actually
    occur in the Leningrad Codex. The editors of BHS use them to indicate
    open space deliberately left blank by the scribe. Pe ("open"
    paragraph) represents a space between verses, where the new verse
    begins on a new column line. This represents a major section of the
    text. Samekh ("closed" paragraph) represents a space of less than a
    line between verses. This is understood to be a subdivision of the
    corresponding "open" section. Since these markers represent an actual
    physical feature of the text, they have been retained.
