Book cover Bible (YLT) NT 12: Epistle to the Colossians (Version 2)

In 1887 Dr. Young issued a Revised Edition, of which two impressions are exhausted. The work has been subjected to a new revision, making no alteration on the principles on which the Translation proceeds but endeavoring to make it as nearly perfect in point of accuracy on its present lines as possible.

Book cover Bible (YLT) NT 11: Epistle to the Philippians

Young used the Textus Receptus and the Masoretic Text as the basis for his translation. He wrote in the preface to the first edition, "It has been no part of the Translator's plan to attempt to form a New Hebrew or Greek Text—he has therefore somewhat rigidly adhered to the received ones."

Book cover Bible (YLT) NT 18: Epistle to Philemon

Philemon is a letter written by the Apostle Paul to the man of the same name, a leader in the church at Colossae, upon the return of his runaway slave, Onesimus. In it, Paul tells Philemon that Onesimus has become a Christian, mentions that he would like to have kept Onesimus with him as a helpful fellow-worker, and requests that Philemon treat him as a brother in the faith. It's a beautiful picture of how Christians are to treat those who have wronged us. - Summary by TriciaG

Book cover Bible (YLT) NT 01: Matthew

This Bible version tries to stay as close to the original Hebrew and Greek texts as possible. As stated in the preface to the second edition, "If a translation gives a present tense when the original gives a past, or a past when it has a present; a perfect for a future, or a future for a perfect; an a for a the, or a the for an a; an imperative for a subjunctive, or a subjunctive for an imperative; a verb for a noun, or a noun for a verb, it is clear that verbal inspiration is as much overlooked as if it had no existence...

Book cover Bible (YLT) NT 06: Epistle to the Romans

The Epistle to the Romans is the sixth book in the New Testament, written by Paul to the believers in Rome. It is perhaps the best epistle for outlining the basic foundations of Christian faith, from man's depravity and need for a savior, to salvation given through faith in Christ, to how believers should live in consequence of such a salvation. - Summary by TriciaG

Book cover Bible (YLT) NT 04: John

An English translation that holds as closely as was possible to the original languages and idioms. - Summary by KevinS

Book cover Bible (YLT) 09: 1 Samuel

The First Book of Samuel ushers in the era of kings, notably Saul and David, who represent the battle between the kingdoms of law and grace, between flesh and spirit, between disingenuous apology for sins and Godly repentence. The imperfect, but Godly, King David is seen in stark contrast to the bragging, self-exalting, and carnal rule of King Saul. This book is a drama fit for the theater, a story of love and devotion, of courage and cowardice, war and peace. But, most of all, this book and its companion second book are metaphors for the Kingdom of God and the coming of Him who is to sit on David's throne...

Book cover Bible (YLT) 12: 2 Kings

In the First Book of Samuel, the people of Israel asked for an earthly king so it could be just like the other nations, a king to fight its battles and lead the people to glory. But, as this Second Book of the Kings makes quite clear, that demand was a mistake. God was their king, and told the people through his prophet, Samuel, about the demands their kings would make upon them, good or evil. As the old saying goes, "Be careful what you wish for." - Summary by Mark Penfold

Book cover Bible (YLT) 11: 1 Kings

As one kingdom passes and another emerges, the First Book of the Kings chronicles the ancestral lineage of King David through his son, Solomon, onward. In this book, we see prophets being called to warn of the consequences of unrighteousness, kings either proudly---if imperfectly---obeying God, or arrogantly tossing His laws and commands behind their backs in shows of defiance, and the ramifications that follow Man's insistence on choosing men---rather than God Himself---to rule His people. - Summary by Mark Penfold

Book cover Bible (YLT) 10: 2 Samuel

The Second Book of Samuel tells us of this David---the son of Jesse, a common shepherd as a boy, a ruddy youth trying to prove his courage and fighting spirit, and now a man with sons of his own---as king of Israel, the man after God's heart, contrite and humble in spirit....and very deeply flawed. As trouble after trouble besets him at every turn, and as he struggles with trials and tribulations, David remains a man of deep and abiding faith in his LORD, the true king over His people Israel. This story reminds us that to be a leader of God's people, one must submit to Him who gave him such awesome authority and responsibility over this chosen nation.

Book cover Bible (YLT) NT 07: 1st Epistle to the Corinthians

The First Epistle to the Corinthians was written by the Apostle Paul, after having established the church in Corinth. In it, he responds to a letter written to him by the church, addressing some errors and controversies that have arisen in the church. Among the topics are divisions within the church; immorality; marriage; Christian liberty; and the doctrine of the resurrection.
