Hebrew & Greek lettering

How can I include Hebrew and/or Greek lettering in a forum message? The ascii codes that begin with #& don't work. It seems highly appropriate for this website to have a convenient way to quote the Bible in its original languages.

I changed the language settings on my computer to enable Greek and Hebrew Keyboards, but I use these languages quite a bit. I haven't had any trouble cutting and pasting specific verses from the NA 28 (Greek) or the BHS (Hebrew). You can access both from the link below. I hope this helps.

I typically just copy/paste the letters I want. Works great.

Eg-- choose your bible website of preference.
Activate the greek/hebrew translations.
copy/paste into a post.

Example.
entire sentences

22:14 Μακάριοι οἱ ποιοῦντες τὰς ἐντολὰς αὐτοῦ, ἵνα ἔσται ἡ ἐξουσία αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τὸ ξύλον τῆς ζωῆς καὶ τοῖς πυλῶσιν εἰσέλθωσιν εἰς τὴν πόλιν


single words
πόλιν

and individual letters.

α

It works for all fonts.
תּֽוֹדִיעֵנִי אֹרַח חַיִּים שֹׂבַע שְׂמָחוֹת אֶת־פָּנֶיךָ נְעִמוֹת בִּימִינְךָ נֶֽצַח׃

אֹרַח

ם




I do find it necessary to change the font size under the tT tool above . 1613765944024.png
In this case, I selected 22 as my size.

I'm using the blue letter bible site.

Hope this helps.
