are blessed to have the Bible in our English language. It goes without
saying that the Bible was not originally written in English but Hebrew,
Aramaic, and Greek--languages that are now confined to the classrooms of
English language has change over the centuries and it has been necessary
to "update" our English versions of the Bible to reflect the
English as spoken and understood by people living in the times. Here is
a history of those changes. Only the language changes--the truth of the
Bible remains unchanged.
Anglo-Saxon versions are in old-English; Wycliffe wrote in
middle-English; all other versions are in modern-English--but even
modern-English has evolved.
