Editing the whole Bible and accounting for all changes as footnotes + footnote index



In Microsoft Word, I wish to change 100's of words in order to create m
own Bible version.

So I decided all the unique words I'd like to change and I created a
excel file containing 2 columns:
Column A. The words to be removed.
Column B. The new words to be inserted.

Here's what my work looks like:

Column A Column B

God Elohim
heaven shamayim
earth aretz
waters mayim
good tov

Besides making all the changes, I wish to put footnotes at the bottom o
every page, accounting for all such changes.

For example:
The word "Elohim" now replaces the word "God".
So I would like to have it underlined like this: In the beginnin
And then have a footnote at the bottom of the page, showing that th

word "Elohim", then create the appropriate footnote, and then have M
Word do the same for every occurrence thereafter, as well as put tha
same footnote on every page (only once per page) only where it'

Should I try doing all this by creating first a concordance file? An
then, is there some way of creating automatic bookmarks
cross-references? footnotes? .. so I can also render my footnote inde
as glossary in the back of the book?

Or is it there a way with macros to make all my changes and footnotes?
And then for the glossary, is there a way to gather all the footnote
and list them alphabetically in the back of the book?

Do I want to make a concordance file? Should these be created as inde
entries? Or as footnotes, or as cross-references, or as bookmarks, or a
citations? I'm not sure which way is best, considering I have all th
changes I want to make, all in an excel file, and I'm not sure how the
can be retrieved from Word, replacing all the old words with the ne
