Ways of Christ
Here is an
The World English Bible (WEB), taken from http://ebible.org/web/oldindex.htm
The World English Bible is a Modern English update
of the American Standard
Version of 1901, by ebible.org.
We (Ways of Christ ™) used here the old layout of the WEB Bible texts - based on whole books -, last updated by their editor 19 - August - 2008. This old layout version was still on the Website of ebible.org 5 - September 2014. (Our bible text is the original WEB text; some formates and links are adapted to our website.)
You may use also the new
layout version of ebible.org - based on chapters -, or download it from http://ebible.org/web/index.htm.
There You find more formates too, for instance mp3 audio files.
There is also a Hebrew Names Version of the World English Bible (also called the World English Bible: Messianic Edition) that is created by substituting traditional Hebrew names and phrases for equivalent Greek/English names and phrases. Although there are Hebrew versions of some names and a few differing translational choices where more than one rendition is reasonable, the meaning of the Holy Scriptures remains the same. Like the WEB, the HNV is in draft form right now. It is automatically updated as the World English Bible and the substitution list are updated.
The World English Bible may also be found on other www sites, such as the named http://www.ebible.org , the Biblical Prophecy Resource Center and Biola University's site; and here Ways-of-Christ.net .
This site Ways of Christ is not responsible for this text version: it is not identical with our own short bible quotes in our webpages.
The Old Testament
Another version with frames (with navigation bar)
The Apocrypha / Deuterocanonical Books
These books provide historical background helpful for understanding the Old and New Testaments, and some information found in the Greek Septuagint but not found in the traditional Hebrew manuscripts of the Old Testament.
The New Testament
Since the World English Bible is still a work in
progress, the numbers after
the book names indicate the approximate status of each book:
*1*: Automated conversion from the ASV of 1901 completed: no quotation marks, and some of the grammar is still archaic.
*2*: In the process of its first manual revision.
*3*: First manual revision completed.
*4* - *6*: Proofreading & accuracy check in progress.
*7* or no number given: "Done" (but not frozen) and stable enough to commit to print (but please tell us if you find a typo or translational issue anyway, and we will make well-justified corrections).
Note: every verse in the above Bible books are marked with anchors, so that you can link straight to any verse. The anchors are of the form C1V1 (but replace the numbers with the actual chapter and verse), so for example, to load John with chapter 3, verse 16 at the top of the page, use the URL John.htm#C3V16 (or http://eBible.org/web/John.htm#C3V16 ).
Look for the meanings of words like cubit, selah, and denarius in the Glossary. These words are not common Modern English, but are necessary to preserve the historical and literary form of the Holy Bible.
Frequently Asked Questions page from ebible.org, Annotation: Hebrew names of God; Bible downloads of ebible.org
Here You may get a window for searching the Bible for pages containing Your words. From the begin of the pages You find the passages(s) with Your browser, which has usually a function "edit / search".
On the index with frames You find a simple year-long reading plan. However, Ways of Christ proposes, to study for instance a Gospel in the Biblical sequence, and working on a chapter until You feel better with it. We do not suggest to mix parts of the Old and New Testament.
For study we recommend a printed copy. A bound, printed copy of the New Testament plus Psalms and Proverbs of the World English Bible is available. This will be easier than reading the texts in the Internet.
