To my friends who are students of the Bible: this on-line version of the Bible in English will hopefully work fairly well even with only have a couple of bars and 3g, with no advertising and no slide-outs or pop-ups (something I find very irritating in most of the better Bible websites, which also have some features that don't always work well on an android device). The first phase is a mostly unedited copy, paste, and reformat existing public domain versions, most notably the Hebrew Names Version (HNV) of the World English Bible, a Modern English update of the American Standard Version. Also used are Young's literal translation and the Brenton translation of the Septuagint, and occasionally others.
In the next phase of this project, which I began somewhat slowly three and a half years ago, and in earnest last December (2015), I will begin to add notes, and edit the text to show the actual names of God as used in the original Hebrew and Greek texts, and update some of the translation where the English we use has changed from what it was even a few decades ago, or where the older translations were less than accurate.
Here are a few fundamental principles of translation and interpretation that I try to follow in this work:
1. Any translation or interpretation must be consistent with, or not inconsistent with, who and what God must be if he is truly God.
2. Any translation or interpretation must be consistent with, or not inconsistent with, other places of scripture.
3. Any translation or interpretation must be consistent with, or not inconsistent with, natural revelation.
4. Whenever there is an inconsistency, the presumption of fault rests with the translation, interpretation, or our understanding of the revelation in question, whether divine or natural.
FOR THE COUSIN SAM VERSION, THE USE OF THE NAME OF GOD WILL BE AS FOLLOWS:
In the Hebrew scriptures:
YHVH will be used for the Tetragrammaton, יהוה, the divine (personal) name of God.
I do not recommend attempting to pronounce this name: rather, when reading, substitute God, Lord, or Lord God, according to your personal preference.
Adonai, Elohim, and variants thereof, will be in transliterated Hebrew.
In the Greek scriptures, the usual English designations will probably be used.
Most proper names will be in transliterated Hebrew, rather than Latinized.
I plan to give the English meaning of the names in brackets when able and suitable.
