World English Bible - Not perfect, but made by born again JESUS-followers


Why create yet another English translation of the Holy Bible?

That is a good question. There are many good English translations of the Holy Bible. Unfortunately, almost all of them are either (1) archaic (like the KJV and ASV of 1901), or (2) covered by copyright restrictions that prevent unrestricted free posting on the internet or other media (like the NIV and NASB). The Bible in Basic English (BBE) was in the Public Domain in the USA (but not all countries) for a while, but its copyrighted appeared to have been restored by GATT, at least for a time. It now appears that in spite of the ambiguities involved, BBE is really in the Public Domain, now, but that was not at all clear at the time I first investigated. (The BBE used a rather restricted subset of English, anyway, limiting its accuracy and readability.) In other words, at the time this project was started, there was NO OTHERcomplete translation of the Holy Bible in normal Modern English that could be freely copied (except for some limited “fair use” or in the case of the NET Bible, restrictions regarding personal use only, etc.) without written permission from the publisher and (usually) payment of royalties.


This is the vacuum that the World English Bible is filling. This is a quality translation of the Holy Bible into modern English that you may freely use, either for personal or commercial purposes. There is no legal monopoly controlling what books you may quote Scriptures from this translationin, or what Bible study software may or may not use this translation.

Colossians 1:12-20 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the Saints in light,

13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son,

14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, that is, the forgiveness of sins.

15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the first begotten of every creature.

16 For by him were all things created which are in heaven, and which are in earth, things visible and invisible: whether they be Thrones, or Dominions, or Principalities, or Powers, all things were created by him, and for him.

17 And he is before all things, and in him all things consist.
18 And he is the head of the body of the Church: he is the beginning, and the first begotten of the dead, that in all things he might have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father, that in him should all fullness dwell.

20 And through peace made by that blood of that his cross, to reconcile to himself through him, through him, I say, all things, both which are in earth, and which are in heaven.

  1. SATAN fears the name of JESUS!
    It's about the MEANING of the name JESUS or YESHUA: 'I AM Salvation'.

    JESUS is God, manifested in the flesh, and Lucifer-Satan is merely a tiny INSECT in comparison to Him!

    This man needs to be CORRECTED, because it's NOT TRUE what he's asserting, and you know why?


    When JESUS saved me He said: 'Hans there are two things you can do: commit suicide, or start reading the BIBLE'.

    Being off subject is not a sin, my dear Princess La'Teisha! ;-))

    He's telling more nonsense.

    When JESUS saved me He said: 'Hans there are two things you can do: commit suicide, or start reading the BIBLE', and mind you: I'm an EX-ATHEIST.
