J.P. Green has done a lot with interlinears in both testaments. Keep in
mind however that he is a Textus Receptus advocate and his NT is based
on the TBS edition of the TR. Also, Green's renderings of the original
language tend to reflect a rather outmoded approach to lexical
semantics. His literal version of the whole bible is among the
curiosites that I have in my library.

I have no objection to people owning an interlinear as long as they
don't use it. :-)))
