Testing & Availability:

  • Thousands of copies sold since 2014!
  • Tested and working beautifully on the 4th generation Kindle e-Ink series, running Kindle software version 4.1.1, and on Kindle Fire HDX. Users report success on 2nd gen. Paperwhite also.
  • Note: Hebrew and Greek fonts DO NOT DISPLAY CORRECTLY ON OLDER E-INK KINDLE DEVICES (1st, 2nd, and possibly 3rd generation e-Ink Kindles). This is due to the older devices' inherent limitations in displaying complex language fonts like Hebrew and Greek. This cannot be corrected unless you can update your Kindle to software version 4.1.1+. Do NOT buy these titles if you have an older Kindle, because they will NOT display the Greek/Hebrew fonts correctly. Download a free sample before you buy to test if it will work on your device.

    Note on all editions:
    Due to Kindle's inherent right-to-left language limitations, the Hebrew text is not searchable, and currently you are not able to highlight and clip verses from the Hebrew text (at least on the e-Ink series).

    Hebrew Holem-Vaser issue:
    The Hebrew Holdem-Vaser character does not display exactly as intended on any Kindle that we've tried with the default Hebrew font. The difference is negligible for most users.
