I need this help. I am developing a bible API for my website and i want to know where to find the original text in html format. Do I need to write to the publishers or on which website can I get 100% of the original bible text, both old and new testaments. I do not want to use others API and i would be glad to get it in many other versions. THANK YOU FOR ANY GOOD ANSWERS...

There's no such original manuscripts in existence of ANY holy book (well, not of Christianity, Judaism, or Islam). For starters, I would recommend that you research the history of the Holy Bible. :) – Simply a Christian Dec 21 '13 at 9:23

Start here to see which versions are public domain, then try searching for full text of those versions. – fredsbend Dec 21 '13 at 17:17

If you want to use the full text of a particular translation in your own Bible API then you need to contact the publisher of that translation or, you can use a translation that is in the public domain.
