How sad!
Sad that someone has gone through so much trouble to perpitrate a hoax. The so-called developer is so cowardly he does not even leave a live link to his name as anyone would who wanted to take credit for his work. How evil could anyone be you wonder? You need not wonder because you can read this individuals remarks in the commentary column where he masquerades as other people in order to make negative remarks about Jehovah's Witnesse. How pathetic! He probably thinks he is some kind of genius.

The Jehovah' Witnesses DO NOT at present have a NWT version for the Ipod/Itouch, but only for certain PDA's which are:

Palm TX
Centro
Lifedrive
Palm T5 (with Palm software patch)
Treo 650 (with Palm software patch)
Treo 680
Treo 700p
Treo 755p
Tungsten E
Tungsten
Zire 72

The Tungsten E2 is not compatible.

A memory card is also recommended for your PDA for backup and other eBible features

The New World Translation can be downloaded for these devices at:

Finally, just remember that the bible (all versions)says that wicked men and imposters will advance from bad to worse, misleading and being misled (2Ti 3:13)

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.

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...

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.

Thanks for being the only person so far to review the widget instead of post about religions.

I find this interesting:
"Actually, most true bible text scholars have praise for the NWT for its crisp rendering of Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic, regardless of the fact that it's published by the WTB&TS."
Who are these scholars? That sounds like what the Jehovah's Witnesses leadership tells its flock so that they feel good about the translation. In fact the opposite is true....the NWT bible is very biased and has changed some of the meaning of what the original texts of the bible were trying to convey, in order to be more in line with what the JWs leadership tells its flock to believe. Tells them? Yes, after all, the JWs fall into the "Cult" classification....oh but wait...they're told that they're not a cult and they're given reasons why they're not. Hmmmm...sounds like they're told how to think and what to think...all the time.
