Bible in Basic English

This isn’t just another English translation; this version translates the Bible into Basic English, a simplified English language created by Charles Ogden, which, with only 850 words, is able to express most things that can be said in English. Working from Basic English, a translation committee added 150 Biblical words to the 850 initial words to create a 1000-word dictionary from which to work. Using just those 1000 words, the Bible in Basic English is an excellent resource for non-native English speakers. This text is Public Domain in the United States.
