What other translations do I use in my personal study?
The Webster Bible . . . Mr. Webster unified and upgraded the spelling of the King James text into
American English and did very little else; sort of a spell-checked version of the King James text
The New King James Version . . . modern-language update of the King James Version; loses much
of the majesty by dumbing down the language. It is handy mostly for checking the definitions of old
The NEW ENGLISH BIBLE . . . out of print; cannot even find the text on the internet. This
translation was done in the 1960's and 1970's and has many good qualities. I do have issues with
some doctrinal translations and could not adopt it as my primary version.
Hebraic Roots Bible . . . calls itself a literal translation; correcting many of the
historically-mistranslated words. I find it to be a good resource; can be downloaded in several formats
English Parallel Bible: King James Bible with Transliterated Hebrew Old Testament and Greek New
Testament . . . this is part of the free and downloadable LDS View Scripture program, which
contains all the LDS scriptures and study aides; it's like studying the Bible with a translator sitting
next to you
Here are some on-line resources for your study of the Bible:
Easton's Bible Dictionary
Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary
Online version of Adam Clarke's Bible Commentary.
King James Translator's Notes . . . When the translators published the King James Translation, it
was with footnotes containing alternate translations. Most of today's editions omit many of these
footnotes. Here is a copy with the translator's footnotes.
King James Bible Dictionary . . . so you can understand what all those words meant back then
King James Bible's translation of the Apocrypha, which was bound with the biblical text until the
Bible Hub . . . a very good website for a lot of Bible study
Read the Bible in a Year . . . a website that helps you plan how to read the Bible in a year
Complete Bible Genealogy . . This site blows my mind! Put in a name and learn who they are, their
parents, siblings, spouses, and children!
James Usshur's Bible Chronology - an archbishop in the Church of Ireland, he was one of the first
to attempt to establish dates for biblical events; still a standard among many bible scholars
The History of the World from a Bible Perspective has a lot of charts you might find useful.
Wikipedia's 'Chronology of the Bible' article also has some good charts.
Genealogy from Adam to the Twelve Tribes by John P. Pratt - I have used a printed copy since the
1980's and was excited to find an updated version on-line.
