CEB (Common English Bible)



 

 I am so loving my CEB, it has become a part of my daily Bible reading time, and I also have been carrying it to church, and enjoy comparing it with other versions, thus I have included a familar verse combination comparison. 
Enjoy!  Be sure to visit the website for more comparisons and information

Some verse comparisons:

Matthew 6:9-13

Common English Bible (CEB)New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
Pray like this:
Our Father who is in heaven,
uphold the holiness of your name.
Bring in your kingdom
so that your will is done on earth as it’s done in heaven.
Give us the bread we need for today.
Forgive us for the ways we have wronged you,
just as we also forgive those who have wronged us.
And don’t lead us into temptation,
but rescue us from the evil one.
Pray then in this way:
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors
And do not bring us to the time of trial,
but rescue us from the evil one.
New International Version (NIV)
This, then, is how you should pray: "'Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.'
