      The links page at the ANE-2 homepage
      <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ANE-2/links> has a number of links both
      to biblical text and to pages with links to resorces for biblical
      study. Look in the folders "Bible readers" and "Gateways/Portals".
      Can't guarantee that what you want can be found there, but it's worth
      a try.
