Overview

The Darby Bible (DBY, formal title The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby) refers to the Bible as translated from Hebrew and Greek by John Nelson Darby. Darby published a translation of the New Testament in 1867, with revised editions in 1872 and 1884. After his death, some of his students produced an Old Testament translation based on Darby's French and German translations. The complete Darby Bible, including Darby's 3rd edition New Testament and his students' Old Testament, was first published in 1890. [1]

J N Darby’s purpose was, as he states in the preface to his English NT, to make a modern translation for the unlearned who have neither access to manuscript texts or training and knowledge of ancient languages of the Scriptures. He was the principal scholar for a number of translations – and not the sole translator of any one of the various translations that bear his name. He worked with various brethren who had academic and spiritual qualifications. He also acknowledges dependence on the critical work of Samuel Prideaux Tregelles and various other scholars. Darby’s translation work was not intended to be read aloud. His work was for study and private use. In his own oral ministry he generally used the English KJV.

This version features the Old and New testaments in a Table of Contents. Within a few clicks, you can navigate to any verse that you want. You can select the chapter that you want, then scroll down to find the verse that you need.

    the verse reference numerals too small

    This is a very good rendering of the Darby Bible on Nook. There's only one problem that is almost serious enough to make it unusable: the verse reference numerals are too small. I mean really small. Almost invisible. I use iPad 3, so I can't speak for how it looks like on other devices.

    excellent translation

    This is an excellent translation of the Word of God from the man who devoted his life to the pursuit of scriptural truth; and primarily through his writings and study the blessed event known as the rapture of the true church was once again brought from obscurity. Preached mightily by the apostle Paul and taught for the first few centuries to all beleivers, this event became hidden by organized christianity that followed the world rather than the Lord.
