Unchecked Copy BoxCol 3:14 - And to all these add love, which is the bond of perfectness.
Unchecked Copy BoxCol 3:15 - And let the peace of Christ preside in your hearts, to which also ye have been called in one body, and be thankful.

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
