I want to download Tanach, or at least Chumash, in a word type format. I want to be able copy and paste etc... Any help would be much appreciated. Yasher Kokachem.

Edit: Mechon Mamre texts are encoded in Win-1255. Answers with UFT-8 formats are desired for Linux users to view and search the files from a terminal.

    What is word type format? Do you mean Word-type (i.e. Microsoft Word-type) format?

Mechon Mamre's free offline resources may be what you're looking for.

  • Problem (for me) is those files are encoded in "charset=Windows-1255" not UTF-8, so for example I cannot view or search in a Linux terminal. UFT-8 encoding would be good. May 10 at 8:43

Wikitext is also good. http://he.wikisource.org/wiki/עמוד_ראשי

  • Where exactly to download the text? I couldn't find. Also their "download PDF/other formats" function (along the left menu panel) is still in development and hasn't worked for me in recent past. May 11 at 15:55

If an Excel file would meet your needs with every pasuk in Tanach appearing as a separate row then an excellent resource is a Google spreadsheet from מקרא על פי המסורה: The Mikra al Pi HaMasora project at WikiText/WikiSource.

I'm pretty sure it is UTF-8 compatible. It can be downloaded to XLSX and CSV among other formats from the File / Download selection from the Google docs menu.

Caveat is that sometimes comments are encoded within the pasuk text, but it shouldn't hinder your ability to search for things.
