American King James Version for Bible+

American King James Version, by Stone Engelbrite

This is a new translation of the Bible, based on the original King James Version. It is a simple word for word update from the King James English.  It have been taken care to change nothing doctrinely, but to simply update the spelling and vocabulary.  No grammar change because that could alter it doctrinely.

American Standard Version for Bible+

American Standard Version (1901) with footnotes and paragraph indication.

The American Standard Version of 1901 is an Americanization of the English Revised Bible, which is an update of the KJV to less archaic spelling and greater accuracy of translation. It has been called "The Rock of Biblical Honesty." It is the product of the work of over 50 Evangelical Christian scholars.

While the ASV retains many archaic word forms, it is still more understandable to the modern reader than the KJV in many passages. The ASV also forms the basis for several modern English translations, including the World English Bible (http://www.eBible.org/bible/WEB), which is also in the Public Domain. The ASV uses "Jehovah" for God's proper name. While the current consensus is that this Holy Name was more likely pronounced "Yahweh," it is refreshing to see this rendition instead of the overloading of the word "Lord" that the KJV, NASB, and many others do.

Pronouns referring to God are not capitalized in the ASV, as they are not in the NIV and some others, breaking the tradition of the KJV. Since Hebrew has no such thing as tense, and the oldest Greek manuscripts are all upper case, anyway, this tradition was based only on English usage around 1600, anyway. Not capitalizing these pronouns solves some translational problems, such as the coronation psalms, which refer equally well to an earthly king and to God.

Bible in Worldwide English for Bible+

The Bible in Worldwide English (BWE) with paragraph indication. 

This New Testament was originally prepared by Annie Cressman, who died in 1993. She was a Canadian Bible teacher in Liberia in West Africa. Whilst teaching students in a Bible School where the language used was English, she found that she was spending more time explaining the meaning of the English than she was teaching the Bible itself. So she decided to write this simple version in easy English so that her students could easily understand.

In 1959 the Full Gospel Publishing House in Toronto, Canada, printed a trial edition of the Gospel of Mark. A further edition was published in 1962 by the American Bible Society. The whole New Testament was first published by SOON Publications in India in 1969 in hardback form. This was assisted by Operation Mobilisation (OM) and was reprinted in 1971.

The vision to reprint a new edition of the whole New Testament has now been carried out by SOON in conjunction with EPH and OM. Where a change to more modern words has been made, this has been kept in line with the the Authorised Version.

Modern King James Version for Bible+

Modern King James Version, by J. Green

Feature:  Paragraph indication.

Description: The Modern King James Version of the Bible is an update of the Authorized King James Version in today's English. Besides the language update,  it has these differences: 

  • Many older editions of the KJV have a center column in which they suggest a better translation,  many of these suggestions have now been put into the text.  
  • The names of animals of the Bible have been corrected according to scientific studies today;  
  • The titles to the Psalms and names of places have been translated to their actual meaning rather than their original name,  such as Hor-hagidgad = The Hole in the Cleft. 
  • Those places which are incorrect have been changed (e.g. 'Passover' instead of 'Easter'; 'Joshua' instead of 'Jesus' in Hebrews 4; 'expanse' is replaced by 'firmament'; 'eunuch' for 'officer'; 'Let it not Be!' for 'God forbid'; 'came into being' for 'made' in John 1:3);  
  • places where the King James Version paraphrases have been replaced by a direct translation from the original;  
  • the Greek names for Old Testament characters are given the same name as in the King James Version;  
  • money, titles, weights, etc. are translated as they are in the original languages (e.g. denarius instead of penny).

The reviser has not thrust in words, nor left out words, in order to establish some personal belief as to what the Bible ought to say. The Modern King James Version can be easily understood in the pew when the speaker is using the King James Version.

  • Italic indication in <>

Description: The RNKJV uses the KJV but restores the names of God to their original forms. For example, where the KJV renders yod-he-vav-he (YHWH) "the LORD", the RNKJV renders it "Yahweh". (NB: Actually it renders it yod-he-vav-he now.) Similarly, other Hebrew names like "Elohim" (God/Mighty One(s)) are left in their Hebrew form. The Greek work "Iesous" (Jesus) is also restored to its Hebrew/Aramaic form: "Yahushua".
