The NIV has become the best-selling English version of the Bible since the King James Version. The NIV follows the principle of "dynamic equivalence" to ensure crystal clear understandable English. The best balance between word-for-word and thought-for-thought.

More than 100 scholars from six English-speaking countries, as well as editors and English stylists, worked on the NIV. The scholars represented more than 20 denominations.

The electronic version of the NIV for theWord includes more than 110,000 cross-references, translator's notes, passage headings, parallel passages, words of Jesus in red and more. The rendering closely matches the printed version including italics, poetry indentation and paragraphs. Check the samples below (remember that all display features in theWord can be switched on/off to remove clutter or to add more information to the display, e.g. Sample 4 is identical to Sample 1 but many options have been turned off).

NOTICE: it is recommended to use at least version 3.1.3 of theWord which allows consecutive cross-references to be merged under a single link, in order to avoid clutter due to the many number of cross-references included in NIV.
