World English Bible (WEB) (3 vols.)


Access the only modern English Bible that’s free of all copyright restrictions. Other public domain translations use outdated vocabulary and are difficult to read. Based on the 1901 American Standard Version, the WEB updates the archaic English of the American Standard Version and has been edited to conform to the majority Greek text. Because it is in the public domain, you are free to quote or print the text without limitation. Use the WEB in your church bulletin or website. Publish in-house Bible study materials without costly royalty fees. Gain new insights on familiar texts through this readable, modern translation. This collection includes the British edition of the WEB, the apocryphal/deuterocanonical books, and a special Messianic edition that retains Hebrew names and places.

The Logos editions of the World English Bible (3 vols.) enhance your study with amazing functionality. Fully integrated into your digital library, the Timeline enables you to instantly contextualize the people, places, and ideas discussed in the journal with thousands of other biblical and world events. Perform powerful searches to instantly gather relevant biblical texts and resources together. Free tablet and mobile apps let you take the discussion with you. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

    Looks like people have been waiting years for this. I'll cast my name into the lot bid. Seems like the public domain thing, while nice, does hold this translation back. Rather have it without the apocrypha.

    I have been with Logos since Version 1.6. I love Logos and it is my 'everyday tool'. Even signed up for membership. Yet I can't get WEB. Why? I live in the third world and I need this Public Domain Bible NOW, not in years to come. Kindly put the distribution of the WORD above other considerations. After all, we are paying!

    I have been waiting for this to be available in Logos for over two years now. In the meanwhile, Accordance has had this for years, and Olive Tree has re-released the WEB with Apocrypha (with proper formatting and linking to footnotes). What is taking Logos so long to get the WEB out? Is it due to continuing proofreading or other minor changes to the underlying text?

  5. Michael R. Hart
    Waiting like everyone else. This is pure profit for Logos. Public domain Bible. Why does it take so loooooooooong?

    Wow, this is still in community pricing. If you guys can't get WEB then how about any of the several majority text versions that are out there? It's astonishing to me that Logos doesn't seem to have a single majority text translation. Suggesting NLT which is from corrupt Westcott-Hort text is bad form.

  7. Kevin Laffoon
    This is taking quite a long time. One would think that current bids would be sufficient. Logos technology has been in place for years now. We are dealing with free, public domain text being implemented into the preexisting Logos infrastructure. One would think this would be a fairly inexpensive venture. Projects like this are usually more complex than the public knows. However, with the technology Logos has available, it seems the software would do most of the programming of such materials. For this to take years, regardless of bids, seems a little overboard. Surely Logos can see the potential for the Kingdom and make it happen. Everyone is not a pulpit minister with congregational funding. I appeal to you. Please expedite this process. Thanks for all you have done regardless. You make very useful tools.

    How is this still in community pricing? When is it going to come out? I placed my bid 2 years ago. I'm frustrated that I have what should be the most advanced bible software in the world, but if I want the WEB, I have to go elsewhere.

    I have a hard copy of the Messianic Edition and I love it! Can't wait to use it in Logos 5.
