NET Bible with Notes



The NET BIBLE is a completely new translation of the Bible with 60,932 in-depth translators’ notes.

The NET BIBLE was completed by more than 25 scholars–experts in the original biblical languages–who worked directly from the best currently available Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts. Over 60,000 notes are included with the Bible text which document their decisions and choices in translation. The translators’ notes make the original languages far more accessible, allowing you to look over the translator’s shoulder at the very process of translation. This level of documentation is a first for a Bible translation, making transparent the textual basis and the rationale for key renderings (including major interpretive options and alternative translations). This unparalleled level of detail connects you to the Bible in the original languages in a way never before possible without years of study of Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. It unlocks the riches of the Bible’s truth from entirely new perspectives.

The NET BIBLE was commissioned for ministry purposes—to distribute over the internet and with a new approach to copyright. Most copyrighted Bible translations have a limit on the number of verses you can quote at one time. Or require that you write for permission to quote in your materials. The NET BIBLE takes a different approach allow you to quote freely in your Bible studies and other teaching materials— provided that you are distributing your materials at no charge. You can now work to create high quality biblical study materials confident in knowing that permission has been granted for your works of ministry that will be offered for free to others. (See translation for required copyright statements).


"The fact that the NET Bible (NT) explains itself with a wealth of detailed notes discussing matters of accuracy allows the translators to focus more on readability and eloquence in the translation without inadvertently misleading the reader about the original text. Other translations wrestle with the tension between accuracy, readability, and eloquence in the translation alone, but the NET Bible's notes have given the translators a legitimate shot at consistently balancing all three objectives. Detailed notes also ensure that every English reader can profit from reading the NET Bible (NT), regardless of the version he or she presently prefers. The NET Bible (NT) helps the reader understand why other translations read the way they do."—J. Ed Komoszewski, Christian Research Journal,(Vol. 23, No. 2)
"The translators’ notes, study notes, and text-critical notes (over 60,000 notes altogether) alone are worth the price of the NET Bible. In our work on the fully revised NIV Study Bible of 2002, the TNIV, and the TNIV Study Bible, we consulted the NET Bible notes and were often helped by them. Kudos!"—Kenneth L. Barker, General Editor, NIV Study Bible and TNIV Study Bible
"The footnotes of the NET Bible New Testament provide an invaluable resource for people who want to know the main questions of text, translation, and interpretation that scholars discuss. Given the richness of detail on these questions, nobody will agree with all the answers given here; but the answers stay on the map of well-respected positions, and other answers get an eminently fair shake. ‘Take up and read.’ There’s nothing on the market quite like it."—Robert H. Gundry, Kathleen Smith Professor of Religious Studies, Westmont College
