Hi Accordance!


You've made so many terrific translations of the Bible in modern languages available--I'd like to ask for one more! Bible21 was published in 2009 for Czech believers and could be simple to get permission to add on. It's already available on The Bible app, but Accordance is always my go-to app, and having B21 in Accordance would be terrific. Some details from their site:



Bible21 is a contemporary translation of the Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek Scriptures into modern-day Czech language. Avoiding literalism on the one hand and a free paraphrase on the other, it strives to communicate clearly, yet faithfully both the meaning and the literary style of biblical writings. A team of evangelical translators and linguists led by Alexander Flek has worked on this version for 15 years. Since 2009 when it was first published, Bible21 became widely popular among the Czech churches and the general public.



Name of the work:  Bible. 21st century translation (abbreviated: Bible21 or B21)

Translation author: Alexandr Flek et al. 
Issued by: Biblion, os,  [email protected]

Thanks for taking time to consider this module! God be with you, and have a happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Kit,

Thanks for the suggestion. Bible21 would be a great addition, so let's see if/when it gets added.

Hi Accordance,

I am the lead translator of Bible21 - and just migrated here from BibleWorks which our team has used for over 20 years. 


We would love to see B21 becoming part of Accordance - as its been a part of BW, BibleGateway and other electronic tools for a long time. Since the BW closed business, Accordance is our only option - and its only disadvantage is that it lack a Czech Bible, particularly this contemporary version, used by Gideons International among others. Please check it out at www.bible21.cz/english/bible21 and let me know. We will be more than happy to offer the B21 text for the use in Accordance.

@ OakTree: You can only sell what is in your portfolio. And the more Bible in different languages the more potential customer you have. I guess I had newer taken Accordance if the haven't Bibles in German. (And it can be much more. E.g. the recently published Elberfelder CSV with Strong's)







ATTENTION: My bug reports are all with the GERMAN INTERFACE and with the EUROPEAN NOTATION! It can be the English interface has no bug, which I describe.
