GoBible Voyager Versions and Audio Samples
The GoBible® Voyager™ Device is available in three versions, The New International Version (NIV) read by Charles Taylor, The King James Version (KJV) as read by Alexander Scourby and the The Word Of Promise, New King James Version (NKJV).
The New International Version (NIV), presented by GoBible® features Charles Taylor reading the world's most read, most trusted translation. For more than 25 years people around the world have treasured the clarity and accuracy of the NIV.
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.
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.
Commissioned in 1975 by Thomas Nelson Publishers, 130 respected Bible scholars, church leaders, and lay Christians worked for seven years to create a completely new, modern translation of Scripture, yet one that would retain the purity and stylistic beauty of the original King James. With unyielding faithfulness to the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic texts, the translation applies the most recent research in archaeology, linguistics, and textual studies.
