They are simply available in the “downloads” section.

It provides features like search capabilities, highlighting, note-taking, and cross-referencing, making it convenient for users to conduct in-depth Bible study and research.

I have personally been using e-sword for 20+ years as my “source” for scripture, commentary, lexicon, etc. I praise the Lord for the vision of this project and Believe that God continues to bless it richly.
