The GBBJ corpus may be explored in various ways. You may browse the corpus by text type. Alternatively, you may browse the contents of the corpus by biblical book. You may also browse the corpus by inflected and lexical forms.
At various points you will have the option of either viewing a document or reading a description of it. If you choose to view it, the text will appear in both diplomatic and normalized form (Default Visualization). You will have the option of viewing the normalized text alongside its Hebrew source, Septuagint translation and Hexaplaric variants (Parallel Aligned Text).
