English Bibles

This page has links to English translations of the Bible at sacred-texts. These files (except for the KJV) were derived from data provided by the The Unbound Bible website. We have identified known editions where possible. All of these editions are believed to be in the public domain in the US, due to being published prior to 1923, by non-renewal, or by explicit donation to the public domain.
