Well, I can confirm that your locale works in BibleTime, but only for the NT 
part. You have to add the neccessary entries in the [Book Abbrevs] section 
for the OT. Please do that and send the file again, I'll check and include it 
in SVN once it works.

If the Hebrew locale causes these errors, then there is a bug with 
UTF8-handling or RTL display in BibleCS.

Thanks for you effort, I think this will be nice for the many Arabic-speaking 
people. God bless,
