Jehovah’s Witnesses distribute the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures to anyone who wants to read it.

Although billions of Bibles and numerous translations have been printed by various Bible societies, poverty and religious bias prevent many people from obtaining a Bible in their own language. Consequently, Jehovah’s Witnesses offer the New World Translation in more than 115 languages.

Consider some examples:

 

Rwanda: .................

 

Democratic Republic of the Congo: ....................

 

Fiji: .......................

 

Malawi: ................

 

Over 60 years ago, when the first part of the New World Translation in English was released at a New York City convention, the audience was urged: “Read it through. Study it . . . Put it in the hands of others.” To accomplish that aim, Jehovah’s Witnesses have published over 175 million copies of the New World Translation. Moreover, you can now read the Bible online in about 50 languages.

And here are ones like myself (well just me) moaning that we can't get hold of one in English for a little while.  Amazing work to produce it in so many languages, many for the first time in their language, while we have had for 60 years. (holds head in shame)
