Change in English ESV

February2024

 (Message for the users of the ESV Bible translation).

Dear User of BibleLink,

You are a user of the English Standard Version (ESV), the English Bible translation, published by Crossway.
Crossway has sent us a notification that it has released an improved version of the ESV, called the English Standard Version 2016 (ESV16) and encourages all licensees to update to the 2016 edition.
The modifications in ESV16 are very limited (see https://www.esv.org/about/2016-updates/) and therefore are not expected to cause any problems for users.

For this reason, we would like to ask you to adjust the Bible translation setting in the BibleLink plugin and change it to “English Standard Version 2016”.

If you had chosen the ESV in the plugin setting, the script line did not explicitly contain that Bible translation because the ESV is the default translation. However, this default translation has now become the ESV16. If you still want to keep the ESV, you should change the setting in the plugin accordingly and specifically choose the ESV translation in the setting. In case you use the WordPress version select the ESV, but in case you manually installed a script line, add this to that script line: data-translation=”esv” or check this link for more information.

For now, both versions will still be available in our BibleLink plugin. However bibles.org and bible.com still only offer the text of the ESV16. Therefore, the ‘Read more’ link in our plugin for the existing ESV will refer to the text of the ESV16.

GlobalRize reserves the right to automatically replace the reference to the ESV with the ESV16 in the (near) future, if this should prove necessary for licensing reasons.

Change in Dutch Statenvertaling

January 2024

(Message in Dutch for the users of this Bible translation).

Geachte gebruiker van BibleLink,

U bent gebruiker van de Statenvertaling (Jongbloed-editie) binnen onze plugin. Deze vertaling is ons in licentie gegeven door uitgeverij Royal Jongbloed.
Royal Jongbloed heeft besloten die uitgave van de Statenvertaling niet meer aan te bieden en heeft de rechten daarop overgedragen aan een andere partij.

Uiteraard willen we het gebruik van de Statenvertaling continueren en we hebben tot onze blijdschap Importantia Publishing bereid gevonden een licentie te verstrekken.

De tekst van de Importantia-editie is vrijwel identiek aan die van de Jongbloed-editie. De Importantia-editie is zo’n dertig jaar geleden ontstaan vanuit een digitaliseringsproject, waarbij de beste Jongbloed-druk als uitgangspunt is gebruikt.  Deze digitale editie is toen gepubliceerd in de Online Bijbel software. Ook zijn de bestanden indertijd geschikt gemaakt voor gebruik door Jongbloed. Zowel Jongbloed als ook Importantia hebben in de afgelopen jaren drukfouten gecorrigeerd. Bij het maken van een editie met Strong coderingen bleek op een aantal plaatsen de grondtekst wel een woord te bevatten dat in de Statenvertaling niet was vertaald. Indien taalkundig mogelijk is dat woord ingevoegd in de Importantia-editie. De teksten van de Jongbloed-editie en Importantia-editie zijn hierdoor voor meer dan 99,8% identiek. In 2023 heeft Importantia nogmaals een vergelijk gedaan met de Jongbloed-editie en op basis van deze bevindingen nog een aantal correcties doorgevoerd. De Importantia-editie is dus een verder verbeterde editie van de historische Statenvertaling.

Er zijn enkele kleine verschillen in de Importantia-editie:

  • geen perikooptitels
  • geen verwijsteksten
  • eenvoudigere accentuering van woorden

Zonder benodigde actie van uw kant zal op korte termijn (naar verwachting in februari) dus de Jongbloed-editie worden vervangen door de Importantia-editie.

Het leek ons correct u dit te melden.

January 21, 2022

In January BibleLink reached the milestone of 1 million requests to display a Bible text. A great result which shows that the plugin fills a need and proves its value.
The number of requests is expected to increase at an accelerated pace because licenses have recently been obtained for, among others, a modern Spanish translation and two Portuguese ones. These will soon be available in the plugin.
