The study Bible for Beginners - Volume 1
The terms of the copyright are quite simple. You may use this book in any way you wish. You may copy and distribute it without restraint, in its original form or in any other language.
There is a freedom in God's word - this is to be sought after and upheld in every generation. Selah.
The text is from the Authorised King James version, with many alterations to old-fashioned words to make it more understandable to modern readers. Some extra punctuation has been included also.
All emphasis, illustrations, notes, and the words in square brackets have been added by the compiler.
Some of the notes and articles supplied are from authors long dead whom I have not identified. This is because they are not intended to be authorities but their words express my thoughts better than I can. Where a modern author is used acknowledgement is made.
May God be able to go with you.
