New International Reader's Version (NIrV)

Zondervan 1998

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The New International Reader’s Version was developed to help early readers understand the Bible. Begun in 1992, the NIrV is a simplification of the New International Version. The NIrV uses shorter words and sentences so that those with a typical fourth grade reading level can comprehend what they are reading. The chapters have been separated into shorter sections and most have titles that clearly indicate what the section is all about. The NIrV will be a valuable translation to those for whom English is a second language. The NIrV still relies on the best and oldest copies of the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts for its translation, guaranteeing that those who read it are getting the actual Word of God.
