Literal English Version Bible - New Bible Version. Formerly known as the Shem Qadosh Version of Scripture, the LEV features a restoration of Hebraic Names, as well as over 1,000 footnotes to explain textual variations, word definitions, cross-references, and more.
The LEV includes the 66 books of the standard canon. There are seven (7) appendices, including: explanatory notes, a Torah Portion reading schedule, diagrams of the Tabernacle items, a Hebrew/Syriac/Greek alphabet chart, a glossary of more than 300 terms, and more. The glossary is meant to aid readers in learning pronunciation (as there is a pronunciation key in it), as well as showing the traditional Anglicized form of the word for which the reading may be sarching. In addition to this, the LEV has more than 1,000 footnotes throughout that help to further define words and phrases. These footnotes also note textual variants between different major manuscripts.
The primary goals of the Literal English Version are: to restore Hebraic names, to minimize doctrinal/denominational bias, to retain readability, and to be a literal representation of the Word of Scripture in the English language.
