En­glish Bi­ble Ver­sions

The table below lists all of the “complete” En­glish Bi­ble versions of which I am aware, including important re­vi­sions.  (Not including all re­vi­sions!)  I use a somewhat unusual definition of “complete Bi­ble”:
  • Christian Bi­ble:  includes at least 66 books.  That is:  at least a complete Protestant Old Testament and a complete New Testament.
  • Tanakh (i.e. Jewish Bi­ble):  includes the complete Tanakh (many Christians see this as the “Old Testament” only, without the New Testament)
Each trans­la­tion and re­vi­sion is dated, including separate dates for Old Testament, New Testament and Apoc­ry­pha / Deuterocanonicals pub­li­ca­tion (which is frequently relevant).  At the top of the table are links that allow viewing the same table in different sort orders.

This and the 1537 Cov­er­dale’s Bi­ble were the first authorized En­glish Bi­bles (King Henry VIII).  (Both outlawed in the time of the Great Bi­ble.)  (Brown credits this as the first, Cov­er­dale’s as sec­ond, but that opinion is refuted with details by other scholars, though apparently this was the first printing to explicitly mention the Royal Warrant.)  Most of this Bi­ble is a copy of Tyndale’s work (a more complete copy than Cov­er­dale’s), the remainder being largely a copy of Cov­er­dale’s Bi­ble.
