Thank you for testing our work =)

How about this?

 Xiphos is a Bible study software for GNOME. It facilitates digital text reading
 with bookmarks, full text search and parallel view of alternative or translated
 versions of the same text.
 In addition it allows to keep personal per-verse notes. For larger commentary
 there is also dedicated rich-text study pad. Personal commentary supports spell
 checking and can also be searched.
 Xiphos uses digital text distributed as modules from the SWORD Project. It
 supports Sword Bibles, Commentary, Lexicon and General Book modules. It has
 build in facility to browse remote repository of freely distributed modules and
 install them.
 Other software that uses SWORD Project modules are: bibletime, biblememorizer
 and bibledit.
