Lexham English Bible uncovers literal meaning of original languages for entire Bible, complements users' primary translations ... for free
BELLINGHAM, Wash., March 19, 2012 — Less than a year after the Lexham English Bible for the New Testament was launched by Logos Bible Software, the Old Testament is now available to clarify Scripture in a whole new light. The LEB is a new literal Bible translation that complements primary translations to give a more in-depth understanding of the entire Bible in English.
“The Lexham English Bible is unparalleled by giving users the ability to dig deeper into the original intent and meaning of Scripture,” said Logos President/CEO Bob Pritchett. “This new translation is the ultimate version to complement whatever primary translation you use.”
The LEB is designed to clearly communicate the meaning of the original languages in a seamless and transparent translation to English. Its completion was motivated by a quest for greater accuracy—incorporating recent scholarly findings in linguistics and semantics, new archaeological discoveries, advances in lexicography and a greater understanding of the evolution of the English language.
Available for free, the LEB also allows users to tackle difficult texts because it uses the most up-to-date lexical reference works available as it reveals grammatical, lexical and idiomatic complexities in the original languages.
The Lexham English Bible is a highly literal translation from the makers of Logos Bible Software. Built from the Lexham Hebrew-English Interlinear and Lexham Greek-English Interlinear, the LEB is an ideal second Bible, giving modern-day readers a feel for the underlying original languages.
Logos is the leading provider of multilingual tools and resources for Bible study on Macs, PCs and mobile devices. Logos has served pastors, scholars and everyone who wants to study the Bible since 1992, partnering with 150 publishers to offer more than 21,000 Christian ebooks to users in 210 countries.
