About Holy Bible Easy-to-Read Version (ERV) in English

The Holy Bible: Easy-to-Read Version (ERV) is an English translation of the Bible compiled by the World Bible Translation Center. It was originally published as the English Version for the Deaf (EVD) by BakerBooks.

Deaf readers sometimes struggle with reading English because sign language is their first language. The World Bible Translation Center (WBTC) decided to do a translation that would make reading the Bible easier for them. The EVD uses simpler vocabulary and shorter sentences to make it simpler to understand. Ervin Bishop did most of the translating for the WBTC. He used a thought-for-thought or functional equivalence method of translation.

It was found to be useful for others who struggle with reading and is often used in
prisons and literacy programs.

The ERV uses the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (1984) as its Old Testament text with
some readings from the Dead Sea Scrolls. Also, it follows the Septuagint when its
readings are considered more accurate. (The Septuagint is the ancient Greek translation
of the Hebrew scriptures.) For the New Testament, the ERV uses the United Bible Societies' Greek New Testament (fourth revised edition, 1993) and Nestle-Aland Novum
Testament Graece (twenty-seventh edition, 1993).

Remember, in the moments of greatest darkness, Close your eyes, calm down, take a
deep breath and let the light of the word guide your steps and your life and everything
will happen.
