We are happy to present The Arabic Bible (Smith and Van Dyke) as a download for Accordance. Although of interest to a minority of our users we trust it will prove useful to those who study Arabic or work amongst Arabic speakers. It also indicates our committment to expand the available languages to more non-Roman fonts.

This translation is the popular Van Dyck Version, started in 1847 by Eli Smith and completed by Cornelius Van Allen Van Dyke in Beirut. The New Testament was completed in 1860 and the Old Testament in 1865. It has been widely distributed and accepted by both the Coptic and Protestant churches. The translation was based the Textus Receptus, and follows a literal style of translation into classical Arabic.

This electronic text is based upon the “Arabic Bible”, © 1998-2008 by Arabic Bible Outreach Ministry.

You can order The Arabic Bible here. Please note that you may need to run the latest FontFixer in order to see the Arabic font.
