The Basic English is a simple form of the English language which use 1000 words to explain anything which may be said in english.
This version was made by a Committee, responsible for a new English form of the Bible made from the Hebrew and the Greek.
Sometimes, the limits of the word-list make it hard to keep the parallel with the Hebrew and the Greek. From time to time, some of the more delicate shades of sense have not been covered, but on the other hand, the power and music of the language sometimes take so much of the reader’s attention.
This Version is simple and easy to read. It’s effective to teach the Bible to those with limited education or where English is a second language.
