The World English Bible is a public domain (not copyrighted) modern English translation of the Holy Bible. It is an update of the American Standard Version of 1901, corrected to conform to the best available Greek and Hebrew manuscripts. The World English Bible is written for English-speaking people all over the world, so it avoids local idioms and language fads. It balances understandability, accuracy, and preservation of the style of the original writers. Because the Holy Bible is inspired by the Holy Spirit of God, it continues to help people of all backgrounds. It is the prayer of the translators that this translation of the Holy Bible will make God's message to mankind even more accessible, and will result in many people knowing the true freedom that comes from God's Truth.
