The One Year Bible Online is an excellent resource to help you read through the Bible in a year. You can download PDF files with either a one year reading schedule or a one year chronological reading schedule. The one year schedule gives an Old Testament, Psalms, Proverbs and New Testament reading for each day. The chronological schedule arranges events in the order in which they occurred. Both are formatted for printing, folding and keeping inside your Bible. There is also an option to select your start date. If you are just now thinking of reading through the Bible, you don't have to wait till January 1st to start. Select your start date and the site will customize your schedule for the next year. If you'd rather read online, there are options for that too. (There is a setting for a mobile version of the site as well.)Select the type of readings (one year or chronological one year) then the month. You will be presented with a list of all the readings. If you wish, you can click on the readings for a particular day. A new window will pop up with the readings from your selected version on Bible Gateway.

While I knew about Unleavened Bread Ministries' Numeric English New Testament, I did not notice that there is a slightly modernized version as well. It is mentioned on the Numeric Materials page:
Numeric English New Testament - Today's English is very similar to the above [the Numeric English New Testament] with "thee" and "thou" changed to "you"; plural "you" is so indicated; additionally - plural nouns not so indicated in English are identified.It is available on Amazon but does not appear to be available for download from the UBM website.

One of the reasons I created the Encyclopedia of English Language Bible Versions (EELBV) was to cross reference the many different books on Bible versions. Now I find myself cross referencing my own works as well. I've added a page to the EELBV website to cross reference the Bible Hunter blog entries with the EELBV numbers. Visit the Bible Hunter - EELBV cross reference page for a listing of blog entries sorted by EELBV version number. If you wish to search the Bible Hunter blog entries for a particular word or phrase, simply use Blogger's built in search (probably in the upper left hand part of your screen).

A while back, on December 28, 2011 I mentioned the Divine Name King James Bible. When I recently checked the website, I discovered that it now has the ability to change the Divine Name used online. Click "Online Settings" in the left side menu. From there you can choose to use "Jehovah," "Yehowah," "Yahweh," or "YHWH."

The Committee on Bible Translation is responsible for overseeing the text of the New International Version of the Bible. The Committee's website has biographical information on the members, information about the 2011 version, the story of how the NIV came about (the PDF version is longer than the short page on the site) and answers to many questions about the NIV.
