Two New French Additions to our Bible Library!

We’re excited to announce the addition of two new French Bibles to Bible Gateway’s library: the Segond 21 (S21) and the Nouvelle Edition de Genève (NEG1979)!

Start reading Genèse 1 in the Nouvelle Edition de Genève or Genése 1 in the Segond 21.

Both are graciously provided to us by the Société Biblique de Genève (the Geneva Bible Society). You can read more about the Nouvelle Edition de Genéve or the Segond 21.

And just to get a flavor for the translations, here’s Jean 3:16 in both versions for comparison:

NEG1979:

Car Dieu a tant aimé le monde qu’il a donné son Fils unique, afin que quiconque croit en lui ne périsse point, mais qu’il ait la vie éternelle.

S21:

En effet, Dieu a tant aimé le monde qu’il a donné son Fils unique afin que quiconque croit en lui ne périsse pas mais ait la vie éternelle.

Bible Gateway’s vision is to make God’s word accesible online to as many people as possible. The addition of these two translations offers even more opportunity for deep study by our French-speaking brothers and sisters.
