The Holy Bible of Love

I discovered this one first on The Internet Archive. It is a revision of the King James New Testament. Each occurrence of the word "love" is replaced by a transliteration of the original Greek word. Thus Matthew 5:43 is rendered "Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt agapao thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy." Matthew 6:5 reads "And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they phileo to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward." The main site for this version is The Holy Bible of Love.
