There is no problem on my end either, with either BibleCS 1.5.6 or The 
Bible Tool and the latest version of BHS.  I would try downloading a new 
copy.  Your may be either old or corrupted.  If that doesn't fix the 
problem, there's an error in Sword 1.5.7 or, less likely, in both 
BibleTime and GnomeSword.
