GoBible Traveler Versions and Audio Samples
The GoBible® Traveler™ is available in three versions, The King James Version (KJV) as read by Alexander Scourby, the New International Version (NIV) as read by Charles Taylor, and the Spanish language Nueva Versión Internacional read by Rafael Cruz.
Authorized by King James in 1604, this classic Bible translation was completed in 1611 and has remained one of the most popular Bible translations since. It is identifiable from its rhythm, prose and beautifully crafted language. The KJV has had a profound effect on literature, poetry and prose for almost four centuries.
The NIV was commissioned in the late 1960's and more than one hundred scholars worked for over a decade to complete the translation. Central to the project were certain goals for the NIV: that it be an accurate, beautiful, clear, and dignified translation suitable for public and private reading, teaching, preaching, memorizing, and liturgical use. The translators were united in their commitment to the authority and infallibility of the Bible as God's Word in written form. They agreed that faithful communication of the meaning of the original writers demands frequent modifications in sentence structure (resulting in a "thought-for-thought" translation) and constant regard for the contextual meanings of words.
The New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) Catholic Edition is fully approved for study by Catholics by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and is recognized in many scholarly circles worldwide as the most accurate translation to English from the original Hebrew and Greek texts. It contains all the canonical books of Scripture accepted by the Catholic church arranged in the traditional Catholic order. Imprimatur by the Most Rev. Daniel E. Pilarczyk, President, National Conference of Catholic Bishops.

King James Version, Psalm 23
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
New International Version, Psalm 23
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
Nueva Versión Internacional
El Señor es mi *pastor, nada me falta; en verdes pastos me hace descansar. Junto a tranquilas aguas me conduce; me infunde nuevas *fuerzas. Me guía por sendas de *justicia por amor a su *nombre. Aun si voy por valles tenebrosos, no temo peligro alguno porque tú estás a mi lado; tu vara de pastor me reconforta. Dispones ante m� un banquete en presencia de mis enemigos. Has ungido con perfume mi cabeza; has llenado mi copa a rebosar. La bondad y el amor me seguirán todos los días de mi vida; y en la casa del Señor habitaré para siempre.
