Lexham English Bible

Another Bible version to announce today: the Lexham English Bible. This is a literal translation that is based on the Lexham Greek-English Interlinear New Testament (available in the Logos 4 Bible software). The New Testament is finished and work on the Old Testament is ongoing. I assume that the OT will be based on the Lexham Interlinear Old Testament. Free downloads of the NT are available at the website.

This will be "under a licence enabling the maximum reuse, remixing and sharing without requiring the payment of royalties or the obtaining of permission from copyright holders" and
"a translation reflecting modern English usage and Biblical scholarship." For more information and a download of the book of Mark visit

Book Request

I need to read the book "A Description of the Great Bible, 1539, and the Six Editions of Cranmer's Bible, 1540 and 1541, Printed by Grafton and Whitchurch: Also of the Editions, in Large Folio, of the Authorized Version of the Holy Scriptures, Printed in the Years..." by Francis Fry. One place I've seen it listed is in ATLA's Historical Monograph series. It is #0790510456. Can anyone help me out with a copy of this to read?

Holy Bible - Lighthouse Version

David Plaisted has updated his revision of the King James Bible titled Holy Bible - Lighthouse Version. He sent me the link to a home page for his work rather than just the page.

New Addition to the Links Page

I developed my links page to share things I've found while doing research on the Bible in English. Lately I started adding initials of those that send me a link or run a web site where I found the link. Also, with so many Bibles on Google Books and Internet Archive, I've found myself wishing I could just see the ongoing translations. I haven't gotten it fine tuned that well, but I have added a new listing to the site. It is called "No Facsimiles." It removes the Google Books, Internet Archive and other similar sites from the listing. I've also cut out all versions older than 1950. This leaves a list that can be searched for new and ongoing English Bible translations. I hope this helps somebody else as much as it is helping me.

Here is another edition of the Wycliffe Bible. Lamp Post books has made "a modern, clean, readable version of the original Middle English text." The advertisement does not make clear what edition of Wycliffe was used to create this version.
