Parallel Bibles are a useful way to compare two different Bible translations. In print, you can often find parallel Bibles that contain both an English translation and another language. Another type of parallel Bible may contain a more literal translation next to a dynamic translation or paraphrase.
With the Olive Tree Bible App, you can easily set up your own customized parallel Bible and in video below we’ll show you how.
WHY MULTIPLE TRANSLATIONS?
Now you know how to create a parallel Bible. But why use one? Here are three reasons:
- Read a more literal translation (KJV, ESV, NASB) alongside a more dynamic one (NLT, Message, TLB) to get a better idea of what the text says
- Have an English translation open alongside the different language text
- Compare commentaries or dictionaries by having those resources open instead of a Bible
