If you’re not yet able to read the Bible in the original languages of Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic, you’ll certainly appreciate the ability to study a passage in at least a couple of different versions. At Olive Tree, you can take your pick from more than forty! We won’t look at them all – just some of the most useful Bible for Palm Pilot versions.
KJV21 Bible for Palm pilots and Handheld PC’s – a great choice!
With the familiar phrasing that offers unparalleled beauty, the King James Version is still a favorite of many Bible students. The KJV21 updates some of the archaic language without destroying the beauty of the KJV 1611 version. It’s a great Bible for Palm Pilot and Handheld PC Bible readers!
NASB1995 Bible – another great choice for Palm Pilots!
For serious students of the English Bible, the New American Standard Bible (1995) updated version is probably closer to the wording of the original manuscripts. If you’re looking for a great word-for-word translation, this is the one for you.
Amplified Bible for Palm Pilots and Handheld PC models – a great choice!
If you’re not concerned about studying the literal translation, but would prefer a Bible with a built-in explanation, then you’ll want to check out the Amplified Bible for Palm Pilots. As its name implies, the Amplified Bible “amplifies” and expands the meaning of the text to provide a better understanding of a passage in context. If this is your goal in Bible study, then the Amplified Bible for Palm Pilots and Handheld PC devices would be a great choice for you!

Before joining the mass communication faculty at Elizabeth City State University in North Carolina, Dr. Luton served as pastor of churches in Maryland and North Carolina for almost 20 years. He and his wife, Cheryl, remain active in their church and Dr. Luton serves as an Unreached People Group Coordinator for mission work among the Bisu people of Thailand.
Dr. Luton is currently working on an exciting project with field missionaries to translate the Bible into the Bisu language.

The project is jointly sponsored by the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and Wycliffe Bible translators.
