Q. What version is The Bible Song?
A. It is a new musical version of the Bible. The Bible Song – English Version will hopefully be followed by a Spanish Version.
A. The Bible Song is not a new translation of the Bible. It is word-for-word scripture (with some phrase repetition as in Hebraic poetic parallelism).
A. Each verse is composed to a unique melody. It is created specifically to aid memorization and biblical meditation and is not meant to replace other versions available for reading and studying.
A. To create the The Bible Song comparisons were made between as many as 55 respected versions. Often, a comparative version suggests a poetic phrasing or a variant word choice that rhymes and thus is amenable to lyrical presentation with music. Additionally, repeating phrasing nuances from different versions not only helps the singer understand the meaning of a passage better, it also lends itself to English and/or Hebraic poetic form. Greek interlinear helps and exhaustive concordances are also helpful in this endeavor. The best choice for each word, verse, and phrase was made after consulting and comparing many respected English translations. Blue Letter Bible, Bible Gateway, and Bible Hub – very helpful.
Q. Is The Bible Song a Public Domain version?
A. No. The The Bible Song is protected by copyright. The original music composed for the The Bible Song is only to be used to memorize and meditate on God’s Word.
