The goal of this work is to provide a modern and accurate English translation Bible based on the latest standard texts for the public domain.
The main text chosen for the Old Testament is Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia. A modern public domain Old Testament was used and minor improvements were made. The main text chosen for the New Testament is the United Bible Societies Greek New Testament, Fourth Edition (UBS4). A public domain modern English New Testament version which used the Byzantine Majority Greek text was used as a base text and was conformed to the United Bible Societies Greek text, except where noted
The New Testament footnotes contain many comparisons of the United Bible Societies Greek text with the Majority and TR Greek, Latin Vulgate and Aramaic Peshitta.
It is hoped that this work will reach many, and the Good News of Jesus Christ will expand even further the kingdom of God.
You may publish, copy, memorize, translate, quote, and use the New Heart English Bible freely without additional permission.
