The World English Bible (also known as the WEB) is the only public domain, modern-English translation of the entire Holy Bible. It is also the only English-language Bible custom translated to be understood by most English-speakers, worldwide, eliminating the need for data-processing based or computer operating system-specific internationalizations. Work on the World English Bible began in 1997 and was first known as the American Standard Version 1997.

  Features

The World English Bible project was started to produce a modern English Bible version that is not copyrighted, does not use archaic English (such as the KJV), and is not translated in Basic English (such as the Bible In Basic English). The World English Bible follows the American Standard Version's decision to transliterate the Tetragrammaton, but updates "Jehovah" to be "Yahweh". The British and Messianic Names editions use the traditional forms (e.g. the LORD).

Also includes the following Apocryphal books (in the following order):

  1. Tobit
  2. Judith
  3. Additions to Esther (additions found in the LXX namely Esther 10:4-16)
  4. Wisdom (Also known as the Wisdom of Solomon)
  5. Ecclesiasticus (or Sirach)
  6. Baruch
  7. Epistle of Jeremy (or the Letter of Jeremy)
  8. Prayer of Azarias (Daniel 3:24-97 in the LXX & Vulgate)
  9. Susanna (Daniel 13 in the LXX & Vulgate)
  10. Bel and the Dragon (Daniel 14 in the LXX & Vulgate)
  11. I Maccabees
  12. II Maccabees
  13. 1 Esdras
  14. Prayer of Manasses
  15. Psalm 151
  16. III Maccabees
  17. IV Maccabees
  18. 2 Esdras

  Translation philosophy

It is based on the 1901 American Standard Version, the Greek Majority Text, and the Hebrew Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia with some minor adjustments made because of alternate readings in the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Septuagint although usually these alternate readings are ignored or restricted to the footnotes. There are seven passes of editing and proofreading for each book. An initial automated pass updated approximately 1,000 archaic words, phrases and grammatical constructs. The first manual pass was to add quotation marks (the ASV had none) and other punctuation, and to check the translation against the Greek and Hebrew texts where there are significant textual variants or the meaning is unclear.

○   Lettris
○   Boggle.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
