Overview

The Modern English Version (MEV) is the most modern translation produced in the King James tradition in 30 years. The Modern English Version (MEV) is a translation of the Textus Receptus and the Jacob ben Hayyim edition of the Masoretic Text, using the King James Version as the base manuscript. The MEV is a literal word-for-word translation. It is also often referred to as a formal correspondence translation. The Committee on Bible Translation began their work on the MEV in 2005 and completed it in 2013.

Translated by top theologians from every major Christian faith tradition, the MEV is a faithful representation of the original text and historical context without political, ideological, social, cultural or theological agendas distorting the translation.

The MEV provides a unique cross-denominational approach to the translation of the Bible with an aim of giving fresh insight into the meaning of the Scriptures while staying true to the original intent of the authors. The end result is a translation that will be tremendously helpful for those in ministry and those who wish to know the Word of God in a more intimate way.

—N. Blake Hearson, associate professor of Old Testament and Hebrew, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

I expect that this translation will be readily understood by thoughtful readers of the Bible even as they find the classic truths of eternity expressed in understandable language of today’s English speaker.

—Jonathan M. Watt, adjunct professor of biblical studies, Geneva College

Terrific achievement, a breath of fresh air.

Michael Brown, syndicate radio host, Line of Fire

The MEV fits within the tradition of the original KJV. It is a clear and concise translation that has the feel of the KJV but is updated and eminently more readable for today. It will be an encouragement to all but especially to the modern military men and women for whom the translation was initiated. I look forward to giving my son and his wife, both army medics, copies for their personal devotions.

Eric Mitchell, associate professor of Old Testament and Archaeology, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

The MEV has credibility. I recommend it to the other leaders for spiritual formation and discipleship.

Jack Hayford, founding pastor, The Church on the Way

The MEV is a clear and concise translation that will appeal to modern Bible readers.

Stanley M. Horton, distinguished professor emeritus, Assemblies of God Theological Seminary

    If you are on this page, you are more than likely someone who strongly prefers, or only uses, the KJV. This translation follows in the footsteps of the KJV, NKJV, and the ones that came before. If you prefer the King James, but aren't King James Only, then this might be a good translation to add to your collection. If you are somehow here, and you don't prefer the KJV, then maybe give this translation a shot. It isn't my favorite, but I am glad to see there is still room for a modern translation that sticks with the same source material as the KJV.

    I'm a faithful follower of the NASB, but I'm disappointed with the coming new update changes in 2021. My interest has now moved to the MEV, but I need to know if Logos has begun to work on the reverse-interlinear. If there are no plans for it, please let me know. Thank you.

    The Modern English Version is the BEST Textus Receptus-based English translation. Yes, I said it. Just as the KJV was the best of it's time, as is the MEV for today. The differences are not just changing TH at the end of words to S, but also fixing the Granville Sharp constructions. They also fixed Hell to Hades and Gehenna where needed and Kill to murder in the ten commandments. In these minor changes, the MEV is more understandable and concise than the KJV without losing the reverence and Majesty of the Authorized Version. Even staunch KJV-only folks should give this translation some serious consideration.
