Welsh charity worker helps produce new Bible app
An app allowing Welsh speakers to read the Bible on their mobile phone or iPad was launched at the National Eisteddfod on Thursday.
An app allowing Welsh speakers to read the Bible on their mobile phone and iPad was recently launched at the National Eisteddfod.
Ap Beibl offers three versions: William Morgan’s Bible, the New Welsh Bible and the modern Welsh translation beibl.net.
Arfon Jones, who works for the non-profit organisation Gobaith I Gymru, translated the original texts for beibl.net.
According to Wales Online, Jones heard that the American Bible Society wished to develop an app that could be used throughout the world, and he felt it would be a good idea to have it in the Welsh language.
Jones said: “The great thing about the app is that it’s really easy to use. You can read any part of the Bible in any of the three versions.”
Christine Daniel, the head of Bible Society Wales, said: “Our colleagues in America did the app and we feel it is important that people can read the Bible in the language of their hearts,” adding: “We hope this new app will bring the Bible to younger generations across Wales.”
