Almost 50 years after the vision was cast—and more than 450 million copies later--the New International Version (NIV) is the most widely read Bible translation in contemporary English. That’s because the NIV delivers the very best combination of accuracy and readability. It’s true to God’s Word and true to the reader.
?Getting the Words Right
Getting the words right means being true to the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic of the Bible. But it also means being true to the reader—capturing the Bible’s original meaning in natural, everyday English. That’s what sets the NIV Bible apart. It doesn’t sacrifice precision for clarity or the other way around. It delivers both, all in a Bible translation you’ll love to read.
The NIV Bible is…
The NIV translators are united by their conviction that the Bible is God’s inspired Word. That, along with their years of studying biblical languages, helps them to capture subtle nuances and the depth of meaning in the Bible.
If the first recipients understood God’s Word when they heard it, so should you. That’s the driving force behind the NIV’s commitment to clarity. The Bible should be every bit as clear to you as it was to its original audience.
Bible reading isn’t just a solo exercise; it’s meant to be a shared experience. That’s why the NIV translators prioritize literary beauty, resulting in a Bible translation that’s suitable for public reading and use in churches.
The NIV is translated by an independent, self-governing team of Bible scholars. No publisher, commercial or otherwise (not even us!), can tell them how to translate God’s Word. The translators come from dozens of denominations and churches, and they can only make changes to the text if 70% of the committee agrees — safeguarding against theological bias.
I have been using this bible software for a few weeks now. It is easy and simple to use. I highly recommend it for anyone who studies. I have been reading through different books in the NT. When I stop reading for the night all I have to do is close the app. When I am ready to start again I just open it again and I am on the same page I closed the last time. You can highlight text as well as copy and paste for study or email. I think is is a must have.
Concern over changes in NIV
by Pave Low Picasso
From the 1984 version of the NIV to the 2011 version of the NIV, there seems to be changes that were more motivated by the opinions of men rather than the scripture provided by God. This is very troubling. I am not the only one of my Christian friends who have noticed this. Although translations can always be improved, great care must be taken to accurately translate the original without introducing opinions or doctrines of men. God's Word is a priceless gift and should be treated that way. Jesus is the Word of God made flesh.
Such a user friendly bible!!
I love this app!! So easy to use and I love how you can bookmark special pages and create interactive notes on what you are reading. So much easier and less time consuming when I'm in church to just click on the verse and I'm there instead of always missing the first few sentences of the verse cause I'm still looking for it, while trying not to make the loud page turning sound that trips everyone's focus up.
