The SWORD Project is the CrossWire Bible Society's free Bible
software project. Its purpose is to create cross-platform open-source
tools, covered by the GNU General Public License, that allow
programmers and Bible societies to write new Bible software more
quickly and easily. We also create Bible study software for all
readers, students, scholars, and translators of the Bible, and have
a growing collection of over 200 texts in over 50 languages.

To use sword, you need to have bible, commentary and/or lexicon
modules. You can install those from the crosswire website in two
ways. If you live in a persecuted country however and do not wish
to risk detection, you should *not* try this.
1. Use installmgr (doesn't work when port is built WITHOUT_CURL). E.g.:
# installmgr -init
# installmgr -r crosswire
# installmgr -ri crosswire ASV
See `installmgr --help` for details.
2. Download raw zip-archives from
and unpack them in /usr/local/share/sword.
You probably want to install a bible-application that uses sword,
like bibletime or xiphos.
===>   NOTICE:
The sword port currently does not have a maintainer. As a result, it is
more likely to have unresolved issues, not be up-to-date, or even be removed in
the future. To volunteer to maintain this port, please create an issue at:
