unfoldingWord Literal Text

An open-licensed update of the ASV, intended to provide a ‘form-centric’ understanding of the Bible. It increases the translator’s understanding of the lexical and grammatical composition of the underlying text by adhering closely to the word order and structure of the originals.

The unfoldingWord Literal Text is intended to be used together with the unfoldingWord Simplified Text to provide a more robust view of both the form and function of the original texts.
