The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.

The world's most famous book, which has been translated into more languages than any other publication, is now available in the world's most modern form of communication, SMS or text.
The idea, believed to be a world first, has come from the Bible Society in Australia which translated all 31,173 verses of the Bible into text.
It took just one person about four weeks to convert the entire new and old testaments to text.
The society used the Contemporary English Version and remained faithful to the grammar, changing just the spelling of the words.

U, Lord, r my shepherd. I will neva be in need. U let me rest in fields of green grass. U lead me 2 streams of peaceful water. (Psalm 23)
