Welcome to the Open English Bible
Posted on Mar 22, 2010
The Open English Bible is the anticipated end product of a project intended to create an English translation of the Bible that is:
- 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 scholarshipThe OEB is being formed by editing the public domain Twentieth Century New Testament, which was a new translation of the New Testament published in the early twentieth century, based on the Greek text of Westcott and Hort. As such, the OEB as a translation does not stand within the Tyndale tradition but has a separate tradition in a similar manner to the NIV and New English Bible.Currently available is a preview of the Gospel of Mark.
We are actively seeking collaboration and corrections.
