While there are many Bible translations available, few are in the public domain in modern English, and even fewer in the public domain are based on the latest textual criticism using all available manuscripts. The goal of the New Heart English Bible (NHEB) project is to meet these requirements. The NHEB began with the public domain World English Bible, and was updated with consideration of all the available manuscripts.

A text critical Hebrew Old Testament edition (MTH) and a Greek New Testament edition (MGNT; 3rd edition, April 2021) were also prepared for translators and Bible students, and are dedicated to the public domain.

The MTH began with the Leningrad codex, which was then updated based on all available manuscripts, including Dead Sea Scrolls, Septuagint, Samaritan Pentateuch, Syriac and Latin, with reference to several Hebrew editions.

The MGNT utilized the Westcott-Hort 1881 Greek NT which was then updated based on a review of variants and GNT editions, which included Tischendorf NT 8th edition and Robinson-Pierpont GNT. The Editio Critica Maior for Acts and the General Letters was also consulted. This edition has a critical apparatus.

The text critical Hebrew Tanakh with nikud and text critical Greek NT with accents became available April 27, 2019 through the MySword module HGPD (Hebrew Greek Public Domain). Over 1600 words that have evidence of having fallen out of the contemporary Hebrew and Greek editions from copyist haplography have been returned to the editions that may be found in module HGPD. 

The NHEB and versions are available here as Text and PDF files, and are also available through the MySword app (Android), BibleHub, and some BibleBento versions (iOS). The text critical Hebrew OT and Greek NT editions are available below in PDF and RTF files, and can also be conveniently viewed in the MySword modules HGPD and MGNT.

The New Heart English Bible (NHEB) and versions NHEB-JE, NHEB-JM, NHEB-ME, NHEB-AN, NHEB-YHWH, as well as the MGNT and  MTH editions, are not copyrighted and are dedicated to the Public Domain by the editors and translators. No one may copyright the NHEB, its versions, or the MGNT or MTH. No one may trademark the above  versions. Without changing the text, you may publish, copy, translate, quote, and use the NHEB and versions, and MGNT and MTH freely without additional permission.

NHEB in print? A print version of the public domain NHEB for home or public reading has some advantages over the MySword digital version. The whole NHEB is not currently available in print. However, you can print it yourself, if you don't mind a big four centimeters thick heavy copy. It usually should take only a week or two, for about $35 USD plus about $25 shipping (US).
