|The New Millenium Bible|
|Old Covenant||New Covenant|
This is a rendition of the Bible in contemporary English by George Wallace.
The New Testament appears before the Old Testament. Otherwise, the order of books within each Testament is the same as in the King James Version. Chapters are numbered, but verse form has been replaced by paragraph form. At the beginning of each book is a brief introduction. The books of the Old Testament have been abbreviated.
It contains a short addendum describing the period between the two Testaments.

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and was devoid of any kind of life. It was covered with water, and was in total darkness. The Spirit of God moved over the surface of the water...
The Word already existed before the world was created. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Word was with God from the very beginning. Everything was made by him, and nothing in all creation was made without him.
