It's such a huge topic that I am not sure that we will be able to cover it to your satisfaction. In short, KJV is an old traditional Protestant translation with thee, thou, etc. (I will not start the textual debate here because it is quite divisive); Douay-Rheims is similar to KJV in language but it is a Catholic translation (was translated from Latin Vulgate); ASV is a 1901 revision of KJV, NET Bible is a modern translation with 60,000 notes that explain translation decisions. There are other public domain translations that are available from osnova.com.

Non-OSNOVA publication would include: New King James (exactly what the name suggests, a modernized KJV), NASB, which is based on ASV (it has two versions, one closer to the original Hebrew, Greek to the point that its English is sometimes described as wooden, the newer has more flowing English). The most popular modern translation is NIV (a new version of NIV has just become available for the Kindle). ESV is also popular with protestants. There is NAB for Catholics (but I don't think it is available for the Kindle yet).
Thanks! Ok, so what is World Bible? And do you have NIV?
ETA- Ok NM, looks like you can't do NIV because of copyright issues, is the NET like the NIV at all?

Sorry, one more thing, on the Amazon, it says the NET bible can be downloaded free ("available online for free at www.netbible.com, with 60,932 footnotes that help explain the translation.")
but when I went to that website, it was only free for a nook or sony but not a Kindle?

Ok. WEB Bible is an "open source"-type project where people updated the language of ASV and released the result into the public domain. So, it uses the modern language but it is based on ASV.

NIV's copyright is owned by Zondervan; they have ignored my requests for permission to publish NIV with navigation aids that are part of OSNOVA publications.

Regarding the NET Bible, you should ask someone on that website. They are the copyright holder/publisher and distributor of the NET Bible. I only helped them convert the NET Bible to the Kindle format.

May I direct you to the calibre forums? Calibre is an e-book manager developed by one of our own MobileRead members, kovidgoyal. With calibre installed on your PC, you can easily convert non-DRMed books formatted for the Nook and Sony to a format that Kindle will recognize. It's simple to install, simple to use, and best of all, the download is free (although he does accept donations). There are other free programs out there that also do a fine job of format conversion as well.

As to whether the free NET download contains DRM, however, I have no clue.

Of course, if you get the free WEB download, you'll miss out of OSNova's wonderful DVJ text navigation.
Oh ok, where do I find the one with the navigation? The Amazon one for $5?
(Thanks so much BTW!)

Thanks OSNova for clarifying!!

You quoted me before I edited that last line out. I was thinking of the WEB when posted that last line, not the NET. You'll have to ask OSNova if he's done a DVJ version of the NET Bible. Sorry for the confusion.

No prob, I downloaded and converted the NET epub to a mobi, but if it doesn't include the DVJ then it's not what I want I wish the NIV had it!

Way to go, OSNova! I just bought a copy. It appears to be a great translation.

Note that this edition does not include the notes.

I have taken time to correct typos and OCR errors of sources that flow around the Internet. So, this edition should be the truest to the paper edition of late 1800s.
Thanks for the link, but people should not have to pay for The Bible, you can get the same bible in pdf simply by searching google for "Catholic ebooks."

There are a number of free versions of every public domain Bible translation, including Douay-Rheims. There are pdfs, epubs, mobi, etc.

And with the free bibles you get poor formatting, possibly a TOC the will take you to the book or you can search for a unique phrase to navigate the bible. With the Osnova products you can go right to any verse in any of the books, compare several several versions of the bible for context, go to Henry's Commentaries and use his Bible Encyclopedia as a default dictionary. I haven't really figured out the Study Bible yet, been busy. But all this is possible because of his extra effort and his DVJ navigation and is well worth the $5.00 he asks for his stuff. You can get Gideon's for free as well. But you get what you pay for. It is well worth the little bit he is asking for his efforts.

Thank you Osnova for the fine collection you provide.
