English Revised Version

The New Testament portion of the Bible was published in 1881.

The Old Testament in 1885.

For an account of this version, see Wikipedia: Revised Version

Copies of this version are becoming scarce. Facsimile copies of the 1885 edition may be purchased at: Bible Readers Museum (Facsimile Bibles)

A text version (with a lot of added material!!) is found at English Revised Version

The facsimile seems to be a version of: archived facsimile RV bible. This is the edition I own. The site says itv is "by an unknown author". This site also has a pdf which can be downloaded. It also has a text (.txt) version, which is complete, but has not been proof-read after OCR, and so is a mess. This is not acceptable!!

Amazon also has a "Parallel Bible": which only has the Revised Version--it does not include the "parallel" Authorised--available for Kindle (mobi format). It has the lot--marginal notes and appendix, but is not accurate. "blood of the slam" for "slain" for example. All quotation marks are given as commas. It is only $1.99, BUT even at that price some attempt at accuracy should be made.

I will endeavour over time to produce an accurate version.

The first portion here given is the Appendix granted the US Revision Committee with their preferred readings; promised to them on condition that the US version ("The Revised Version, Standard American Edition", now usually called the "American Standard Version") be not published until 1901.

I have tried to duplicate the layout of the original. I have however used a larger font, which means some lines are now run over two lines. The larger font does make it easier to read, especially as I have aimed for the optimum 66 or so characters per line.

I have given it as a pdf. Any recent browser should be able to read it. If it is downloaded, it can be read in a pdf reader. If it is read by the browser, it may be saved from the File menu or Tools menu as "Save page as".
