I am not sure if everyone forgot the point of the comment section. I don't want to know what they think of JW's or their bible. How well does this program perform. If you didn't download it, then your comments are in the wrong forum. I am not a JW but I am looking for this kind of software for a friend who is and just got an itouch. This is a hassle having to go through so many stupid comments that have nothing to do with the software!

Will this program work on the 2ed Gen ipod itouch? Does anyone know? (anyone who actually used this program)

Frankly, if you don't like the translation, don't download the program. And please, I'm sure there are other websites on which you can blast your opinions. Now... can anyone tell me, does it work on an iPod mini?

Nobody is 'blasting' anything.
They're posting their opinions as is your right as well.

BEWARE! This "translation" of the Bible is brought to you by the Jehovah's Witnesses.

It may cause your iPod to turn on by itself at very inconvenient times. Usually early on Saturday morning.

I'll be as brief as possible:
Firstly, the NWT has free distribution because unpaid Jehovah's Witnesses go door-to-door with it. Second, the book is produced with reduced overhead, as again they use volunteers. The Watchtower Society is in the top 50 richest corporations in NY City because of these factors. Now to the translation. It has rightly earned such descriptions as "pernicious" and "reprehensible". Substituting words ('Jehovah' 236 times where the Greek for 'Lord' occurs in the NT), altering the text in order to promulgate their own bias (in Genesis 1:2 'Spirit of God' changed to 'God's active force'), simply adding words to change the outcome of the text (the word 'other' added three times in Colossians 1 so as to denigrate the person of Christ), and on and on. Now to those responsible for this - The Watchtower Society. In over 100 years of prophecies and predictions: 100 percent wrong (the return of Christ predicted in 1874, 1914, 1915, 1925 and 1975). They forbade organ transplants for almost 20 years after WW2 using the same logic with which they now forbid blood transfusions. "The poisons that produce the impulse to commit suicide, murder, or steal are in the blood" Watchtower 9/15/61, p563. All this is verifiable. SignsOfLife7@yahoo.com

This means that over 100million copies of a biased bible that pushes forward the JWs thinking have been distributed by their peons, who personally mean well without realizing they are brain washed. Sad...
Also, the one man committee that another poster was referring to as having mostly written the NWT, was Fred Franz, at that time pretty much the number two man in the organization, who later became president of the JWs. Interesting to note that on a judicial case in Scotland in the 60s, when he was put on the stand to testify on the side of the JWs, he couldn't read a simple text in Hebrew, thus purgoring himself on the stand. It's a matter of public record, available on-line. It proves that instead of taking the original Hebrew texts, as the JWs claim, he made the translation from other english translations.

*sigh*

So much theology and debate, so little action.

An age-old, but not altogeather unavoidable, problem.

Johnny the Baptizer says NWT is just fine.

Come on, Charles Taze Russell died before 1920. The translation was first released to the public in portions in 1950. So, you think the guy worked on it while he was dead? If so, follow that religion...

King James? You're kidding, right? OK in its' time, but not a worthy book except for a study of old English.

Well you're wrong when you say that "There is nothing wrong about the Bible JW's use"... take a look at The first chapter in the gospel of john, verse 1. "The word was with God, and the word was A god..." Saying that Christ wasn't God... but some other god..

and the king james version is a good version, (as well as the NKVJ) and it's not in "old english" or whatever...

for a more accurate version find a KJV of the Bible. Do your study of history and youll find out the nwt was a nearly '1 man commitee' so he could make it say what he wanted, poor mr charles taze russell. the kjv was about a 50 man commitee, thus checks and balances, not a one sided story.

Hogwash.

More than hogwash, bud. Deal with facts, not what your view of the world is.

Charles Taze Russell died about 1916. The NWT "first edition" was published in increments in 1950 and continues to be improved to this day. No, it wasn't 'one man.' Yeeesh. It was an undertaking that took many years by many men.

Everyone is a critic these days.

Let the poor folks alone. If you want it, download it. If not, bang on someone else.

By the way, the King James 'version' of the Bible is NOT even a translation. It's a paraphrase of previous translations. And in eloquent English that few people today can comprehend.

Oh, some people think God had it written in English and translated into Hebrew and Greek.

Wow. I've never actually heard someone try to convince someone that the KJV of the Bible was the most ACCURATE...I thought it was common knowledge that it wasn't.

For one of the most heavily-researched and "accurate" versions, check out the NRSV, which is used by most Biblical Scholars nowadays (at least english-speaking ones). Which Bible is "correct," however, is a manner of personal taste, not of fact. I would propose the idea that those who disagree with this version should simply not download it, rather than bah the programmer for what was obviously doing a good deal of work towards what he/she undoubtably probably saw as an act of fate. Preach by actions and forgiveness, not by condemnation and words. That, i believe, is not our place.

I did some checking. Looks like some "reviewers" have missed the point. Over 100-million copies of the NW translation have been distributed to over 200 countries. Now it comes to the iPod. Hooray! As to the critics of JW folk, you should be so peace loving and friendly. As to the iPod version, it's an easy install, and simple to use. The scrolling is a bit tedious on certain Bible books and passages, notably Psalm 119. There should be a way to sort the folders more appropriately in iPod's Notes, but simply re-naming the folders works OK.

You gotta remember that many, many others have beliefs that may differ from your own but that does not make those people any less loved by whichever God is ruling these days.
