    The following is part of an email from a retired District Overseer in the States. (source private)

    "The new Bible will be released at the AGM and I understand only two versions will be printed from now on. The Reference Bible and the Deluxe leather bound version. No more small Bibles and no paperback. They have worked hard on the binding and when you open it, it will lay flat. It will be in “modern” English as many young people do not understand many of the words used in the current edition." Spread the Word! They ain't gonna be cheap to "donate" for!

    Does that mean that the translation into Pidgin English will be even funnier? Will there be a Patois (Patwa or Patwah) tranlation also? Not THAT would be funny!

    Revelations 22:21

    The grace of the Master Jesus be with all of you. Oh, Yes! - The Message

    May the grace of the Lord Jesus [the Anointed One] [a] be with all [the saints]. [b] Amen. - The Voice

    But I like cofty's selection better.

    Modern English means they are going to add/embellish some things.

    The JWs are going to go wild over this. Prepare yourselves for the phone calls about this new loving provision at the proper time and how this is a clear sign we are on the brink...

    Can't wait to hear the spin on this! Anxious to see how they clean up John 1:1

    It could be a clever strategy.

    "Simplification" as a disguise for hiding willfully dishonest translations.

    Totally changing the wording helps many verses Cofty. Jesus speaking to the criminal on his side comes to mind.

    -

    Sources tell me the Governing Body has added it’s newly discovered book to the Bible canon. It’s title is Regulations by Watchtower. My source says it’ll be called Regulations for short.

    The 2015 convention will feature Regulations for Your Attention featuring a full chapter on how it’s wrong to climax at hand. I understand illustrations in this chapter feature American Sign language.

    Sounds like they are going with a full-on New World Version instead of a NW Translation. Makes sense. Lets start a pool on how many times "governing body" and "organization" appear in this wonderful provision from Jah

    So it will be more dynamic equivalence, ‘thought per thought’, than literal. All sorts of room for paraphrase!

    Just imagine the money to be made, everyone will have to have a least one. Some will probably "forget" to donate, but even so the take will be huge.
