Textual Critical Notes for NABRE

OTClLICK HERE for the textual notes on the Old Testament of the New American Bible, Revised Edition, that were compiled from the work of the original revisers and arranged by Fr. Joseph Jensen, O.S.B.

Please note: To search these notes, two steps are needed: first search for the Old Testament book, then for the particular verse (colon between chapter and verse).  Be sure you are at the text you are searching for, because there are many cross-references in these notes. We hope to have soon a more sophisticated program provided by the USCCB.
