Dear Friends,

Inserted below is the Book(s) of the Pentateuch by E.M. Zerr  (C)1947.

The file(s) below were scanned from the original 1947 publication.  Don't
believe it is any longer available in Hardback like my 6 volume collection.

The first Volume contains the Pentateuch and some other OT books.
For now, I will be posting E.M. Zerr's Verse-by-Verse Commentary as it
appears in Zerr's Bible Commentary  

The Book of Genesis by Zerr is posted below.  As of 10/16/20 I am now
working on Exodus.  When all five books of the Pentateuch are complete
you should be able to load all five books in order into the LOGOS Personal
Book Editor and compile the First five books of the Old Testament into one
complete Personal Book.  All of Zerr's Commentary on all 66 books of the
bible are available at the following two sites in .PDF Format only:

(1) http://restorationlibrary.org

(2) http://djmarko53.wixsite.com/churchbooks

Please watch for the updates to this collection below:

Anytime Paul,

You should be able to add these files to the Personal Book Editor in the order
as they appear in the Bible.   Hope to have Zerr's Commentary on the Pentateuch
finished by Monday. 

Have a great day in the Lord!

Thanks for your work! 

What title are you using in the PB editor?

Raphael,

Currently I am using the title of "Zerr Commentary on the Pentateuch"

Since I am starting on Deuteronomy, will rename it something like ZERR,
or maybe 'ZBC' which stands for "Zerr Bible Commentary."  That is the title
on each of the six hardback books by Zerr.  I have Zerr's in my WORDsearch
program as a User Book.  So what I have done is I printed the entire first volume
as an '.HTML' file.  I load that into Word and save as a .docx file for use as a 
Personal Book in LOGOS.  Volume One covers Genesis thru Ruth. Volume Two
covers 1st Samuel thru Job.  Volume Three covers Psalms thru Isaiah and 
Volume Four Covers Jeremiah thru Malachi.  They are (c)1947 by E.M. Zerr, who
died in an accident in 1956.  Anyway, for the New Testament the last hardback
edition combines Volumes 5 & 6 in a single hardback.

If anyone wants to download the commentary in PDF format the volumes are found
at these sites:  http://restorationlibrary,org  and http://djmarko53.wixsite.com/churchbooks 

If anyone wants the .HTMl formatted version derived from the WORDsearch User book,
I will be glad to make if available, but believe it is over 28 MB in size.

--Mark Johns--

PS. I am posting Zerr's Commentary on Numbers tonite.  So far I am compiling Genesis
thru Numbers, with no errors and only 1 warning..  I left plenty of space between
the commentary for each verse or group of verses.  Anyone who wants can certainly edit
that space if you choose to do so. For now I am compiling the Commentary as a "Bible Commentary".
and not as a monograph.

Here are the latest Personal Books on the Pentateuch by E.M. Zerr.

It might be best if you load all files in the order as they appear in the Bible.  You can compile each one separately,
or do like what I did and compile them as one single volume.

0488.Zerr-Genesis.docx

4375.Zerr-Exodus.docx

1882.Zerr-Leviticus.docx

7624.Zerr-Numbers.docx

So far, Genesis thru Numbers compiles with no errors and only 1 warning.

I am now working on the Book of Deuteronomy.

E.M. Zerr's Commentary on the Pentateuch which is derived from Zerr's Bible Commentary (c)1947,
is now complete.  There is a little work that needs to be done to the Genesis and Exodus files as far
as the Scripture References in each chapter are concerned, but the book is quite functional otherwise.
I will be smoothing out those rough spots in the next couple days.....

Find below the Zerr's Complete Verse-by-Verse Commentary for Genesis thru Deuteronomy:

7484.Zerr-Genesis.docx

6371.Zerr-Exodus.docx

5488.Zerr-Leviticus.docx

7484.Zerr-Numbers.docx

8231.Zerr-Deuteronomy.docx

Please note that when compiling these first five books of the Old Testament, there are no mistakes at compile time.  Just one error message,
which I suspect is in one of the first 3 books (Gen - Exodus - Leviticus).  The book(s) compile perfectly into a single Commentary as is.

I am now considering working on the rest of E.M. Zerr's Commentary, Volume One, which convers Genesis thru the Book of Ruth.  So, watch this forum for more Personal Books.  If I end up doing all 66 Books of the Bible, it will be a while before I can get to that point.  Have fun and enjoy study in the Word......

The warning ("[Warning] Article 'A_UNKNOWN' has only 1 characters") is in Exodus, but I couldn't find it

Exodus 14 - wrong format - heading 3 would be 2

Error is between Exodus 14.4 and 14.5

If you switch on "Navigation" you will see the empty field

Thanks Calvin and Thomas....

I thought the error was either in Genesis or Exodus.

I will certainly correct that.

I have also finished Zerr's Commentary on Joshua for any who want it.

2262.Zerr-Joshua.docx

Note: To finish up Zerr's First Volume (Gen to Ruth), just need to do Judges and Ruth.
I suppose I will start on Volume Two after that...

Thanks again....

Mark

Thomas,

Thanks again for finding that error.

I just use the WORD 2010 Starter version.
Prefer it over WORDPERFECT

Should have noticed in the Navigation Panel
on the Left in WORD that something was amiss.

Thanks again for finding that error!

Now it compiles perfectly.  No runs, no drips, no "Errors"

Suppose I should combine these .docx files into one.

What I think I will do is when Volume One (Gen-Ruth) is complete, I will combine 
the individual files for Gen-Ruth into a singlie file like Vol01-Zerr_Gen-Ruth.docx

Will most likely do the same for the other five volumes, making sure each
compiles perfectly.  Then merge the six separate volumes into one single .docx file.

Would be a pain to have 66 .docx files to compile...

Thanks again Calvin and Thomas.....

Idea: Left some space between the verse by verse comments by Zerr in case someone
wants to go back and add their own notes and/or comments by Copeland, McGarvey, Burton
Coffman (http://studylight.org) or others from the Restoration Movement.... or some other
good commentator -- long as it's true and faithful to God's Word.

PBB doesnt always process large files fast - but great work so far - I would keep the separate, and then compiler has option of combining,  - either way will make no difference to the outputted PB

That is true.  But if you get to the point where you have 66 books that each compile perfectly.  Then one could merge them into one single .docx file.  Although I prefer working with files as you suggested.

Update for Zerr's Bible Commentary - 10/21/2020 at 1:20pm EST

4760.Zerr_Bible_Commentary_Genesis_thru_Joshua.zip

The above ".ZIPped" file contains the first six(6) books of the Old Testament.  They represent
E.M. Zerr's Bible Commentary.  They reflect changes in the formatting of the Text, Scripture References,
and some Spelling and Grammar Corrections.  These six(6) .docx files are from the original .PDF file of
Volume One of Zerr's Bible Commentary, which includes Verse-by-Verse Commentary on the Books of
Genesis thru Ruth.  I am already working on Zerr's Commentary for Judges and Ruth.  That will then
Complete Volume One.  When that is done, i will begin working on Volume Two which includes Commentary
on 1st Samuel thru Job.

The above ZIP file includes Zerr's entire Comments on Genesis thru Joshua.  However, they are the result
of scanning the original books that were (c)1947 by E.M. Zerr.  Naturally, they contain spelling and grammar
mistakes that I attribute to the OCR scanning done on the original Hardbacks.  Feel free to correct those spelling
mistakes that you come across.  If you can, notify me and you can send the corrected .docx file(s) to me at the 
following email address:  djmarko53@live.com  I will re-post the corrected .docx file(s)....

Hope you like these files.  All I ask is that you keep the (c)Copyright notice at the beginning of each book's .docx
file.  

I will try to complete and upload the rest of Volume One (Genesis thru Ruth) this week.

Have fun and enjoy these verse by verse commentaries on the Old Testament.

As included here, when compiled, this LOGOS Personal Book Compiles with no errors and no error messages
