comment Syncing text on bilingual pages
@mbork I understand your point, but even though Times New Roman is certainly not the most beautiful font, there are very few fonts that read as well as it does. Which is what one is aiming for in the Bible. I've used Cardo sometimes too, which is a bit prettier, but is not as complete as TNR.

comment Calculating the the exact width of the text and a lettrine
@egreg Thanks looks like the solution, but I'll have to try it out first. Must say that in general these LaTeX packages docs aren't the easiest to read and understand.

Do you run it through XeLaTex? I will set this up as a new question tomorrow if it's not a quick fix. The MWE produces three pages of which I am referring to the last one.

I'm not sure how. I'll post my edit of your solution as an answer to this question reduced as much as I can to an MWE.

comment Calculating the the exact width of the text and a lettrine
The only problem with this solution seems to be that it interferes with my section and subsection counters which I use to set the titlemarks. This is not present in the MWE above though. Where do I need to insert the \stepcounter{subsection} code to let the subsection sync up with the Subsection? I've found a spot for the \stepcounter{section} just inside \newcommand{\Section} but inside \newcommand{\Subsection}, \stepcounter{subsection} doesn't seem to work.

This seems like a good solution. Thanks. Might be what I've been looking for in the first place.

@egreg You might be right that I'm missing the mark on this. Although see my comment below on Ulrike's answer for more detail.

comment Disable automatic kerning
Thanks for the example. I've had a question in the past where I had to find the width of the text to include some lettrine in front of. tex.stackexchange.com/q/31459/7093 Even though in the general the answers were helpful, there remain always the cases where they just don't seem to work. So I'm just imagining that when I take the \textwidth it is value "A" and by the time the actual kerning and wrapping with value "B" is applied the width has changed to "A + B". Other than that I don't have a reason for thinking this. It's just in a some cases the solutions doesn't work.
