It was translated from the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek languages by a committee.

It was originally released in six volumes from 1950 to 1960. The originals contained marginal references and footnotes. The revised 1961 edition had neither. This 1984 edition has been expanded to include complete updating and revision of the marginal (cross) references of the original edition.

It was released by the committee to the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania for printing, translation into other languages, and distribution. The translators felt responsible to God to transmit His thoughts and declarations as accurately as possible.

Genesis 1: 1, 2

In [the] beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Now the earth proved to be formless and waste and there was darkness upon the surface of [the] watery deep; and God's active force was moving to and fro over the surface of the waters.


John 1: 1 - 3

In [the] beginning the Word was, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god.
This one was in [the] beginning with God.
All things came into existence through him, and apart from him, not even one thing came into existence.
