Spot the error ?  I've included the ESV alongside to help you out..... No peeking at the answer below Cool

Did you catch the error.  Look at the heading for Joshua 12:1-6 and the heading for Joshua 12:7ff.

In the LEB the headings are around the wrong way.  The LEB headings are suggesting Joshua 12:1-6 are about the Kings defeated by Joshua, however these verses are actually about the Kings defeated by Moses.  And it wrongly suggests verses 7ff are about the Kings defeated by Moses when in fact we can see from v7 it is about the kings defeated by Joshua.

One of those errors spell check isn't going to higlight.

Note: Typo submitted on both errors

Thanks for submitting this. As you can probably imagine, you're not the only one who has noticed it. This error will be corrected in the next update to this resource (as well as "Jordon" in 12:1).

Thanks Elliot.  Glad to know I'm not the only one slogging through this part of Joshua.

Elliot, I'm not seeing well? "Jordon" it's still there in latest update. Martin.

Agreed - but the headings "swap" has been fixed

Hi Martin; sorry I didn't see your post until today. I guess I spoke too soon when I said the "next update" would include that fix. The most recent update didn't include changes to the biblical text. The Jordan typo should be fixed in the next update that includes textual corrections, which should hopefully appear in the next few months.

Also recently found an error in Ezra 8:22b, LEB.

According to the Hebrew within the interlinear, הוּא, and the LXX rendering (using the Lexham English Septuagint), αυτος at the end of this verse, it is incorrectly rendered as a 3rd masculine plural rather than a 3rd masculine singular: (Ezra 8:22b, LEB): "22 “the hand of our God is favorable to all who seek him, but his strength and anger are against all who forsake them.”[correct rendering would be "him"].  I sent an email to logosbugs@logos.com as well, but I hope it becomes the next error fixing priority :)

Hi Jessica

I think you have a case, but you should present it in a new thread in the General forum as Logos 5 has been superceded by Logos 7 and non-software issues should be reported in General.

I'm thinking of printing a hardcopy of the LEB for my personal use, and after downloading the LEB XML file from lexhamenglishbible.com/download (which I'm planning on using to typeset the Bible), I see that the errors above have been corrected in the resource in Logos, but not in the XML version of the LEB. Could we get the XML updated with the latest version of the LEB?
