This is the Catholic Public Domain Version (CPDV) of the Holy Bible. It is not the New American Bible(NAB) and thus some parts will be slightly different than the NAB such as the Psalms numbering. The CPDV bible is available online at www.sacredbible.org where you can compare the Psalms numbering. THIS TRANSLATION IS NOT APPROVED BY THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.
If you would like an approved version of a Catholic Bible please search on my other bible apps "Catholic New American Bible Revised Edition" or "Catholic All-In-1".
The Catholic Public Domain Version of the Bible is a translation of the Sacred Bible, Sixtus V and Clement VIII Latin Vulgate edition. The 1914 Hetzenauer edition of the Vulgate was the main source text. Several other Latin editions were consulted including the 1861 Vercellone edition, the 1822 - 1824 Leander van Ess edition (which compares the 1590, 1592, 1593, 1598 editions of the Sixtus V and Clement VIII editions), and the modern-day Tweedale Edition (London, 2005). The Challoner Douay-Rheims Version of the Bible was used as a guide in translating the Latin text into English. The original Rheims Douai Bible was also frequently consulted.
The sole translator and editor of the Catholic Public Domain Version is Ronald L. Conte Jr. Ron relied on God's Providence and Grace in translating and editing the Sacred Bible. Ron also used various reference texts, in print and in electronic form. Since the Latin editions of the Bible used in this translation are in the public domain, as the sole translator and editor of the Catholic Public Domain Version of the Sacred Bible, I(Ron)hereby place the Catholic Public Domain Version of the Sacred Bible in the public domain in perpetuity.
