The World English Bible is in the public domain and the producer of these audio recordings allows them to be copied, so you may make and give away copies of these Bible audio files.

When the audio recordings were made, the WEB revision was not yet complete. For this reason you will notice slight differences between the audio reading and the written text.

These audio recordings were originally published and made available by We have no relationship with the publishers of that site, but we commend them highly for making the Scriptures available in this way!
