The Voice

The Bible is alive like no other book, and The Voice draws you in like no other Bible.

Scholars, poets, musicians, and story tellers have come together to create this singularly unique translation that transports you into the Bible's narrative. Don't just read the Word, step into the story.

Chapters and verses

April 14, 2015

Two prominent features in modern Bible translations are the chapters and verses.  People often ask me how they got there.  Some think they were there from the beginning but they weren't.  When Paul wrote the book of Romans, he didn't divide it into sixteen chapters.

 One of the things we hoped to do with The Voice project was to help people understand that the Bible is not actually a single book.  It is a veritable library of books, sixty-six in all, written over a period of more than 1000 years.  The current configuration of the Bible didn't just happen.  The order of the books and the collection itself represents a driving theological force which Christians believe was orchestrated by the Holy Spirit.  But what about the chapters and verses?


What others are saying

Translating for The Voice put me in touch with the Bible in new ways, both intimate and playful. Working so closely with the Hebrew texts reminded me again of their multivalency and the importance of a project like this. It gives readers a first-hand sense of the many voices that populate God's Word, and it allows possibilities for conveying meaning not bound by one-to-one translation. Given room by VOICE editors to reach within our own language, I could strive for a living text -- evocative, poignant, inspirational, disturbing, and comforting -- some of the many ways that the biblical texts mean most powerfully.
