Links: Non-Standard Bible Versions

Here are some online Bible versions that are a little different from the standard. They may be useful for study or apologetics.

Cotton Patch NT: A paraphrase written using southern jargon and American names

JB Phillips NT: A popular "modern English" version from the 1960s

Septuagint (LXX) in English and Greek, includes Apocrypha

An older version (1917) of the Jewish Publication Society's (JPS) translation of the Hebrew Bible (i.e., the Old Testament)

The Jehovah's Witnesses New World Translation (NWT)

This isn't a translation so much as a "study" Bible -- the Skeptic's Annotated Bible (KJV); they also have a Koran and Book of Mormon
