World Messianic Bible

The World English Bible: Messianic Edition (EELBV #8865) is now known as the World Messianic Bible. It was also previously known as the "Hebrew Names Version." According to the FAQ, this is a revision of the World English Bible with the following changes:
  • God's Proper Name in the Old Testament is rendered "LORD" or "GOD" instead of "Yahweh".
  • Many proper names in the New Testament are given in their Hebrew forms instead of the common Greek/English forms.
  • "Baptize" is rendered "immerse" for a more clear connection between Jewish purification rituals and the meaning of the Greek word.
  • The books of the Old Covenant are listed in the traditional Hebrew Bible order.

Thanks to JH for this notice.
