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. :)

    Start here to see which versions are public domain, then try searching for full text of those versions.

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.
