Voice in the Wilderness Bible – 2008, A [VW]
Voice in the Wilderness Bible
Summary of Voice in the Wilderness Bible [VW]
Masoretic Text, Textus Receptus. Edited 2003.
A Voice In The Wilderness Holy Scriptures is a translation of the Holy Bible by Paul Becker that is based on the Masoretic Text and the Textus Receptus. A literal translation to the extent possible, this translation renders most references to “the LORD” in the Old Testament (the tetragrammaton YHWH) as Jehovah, except in some of the Psalms where it uses the shortened form Yah. Another distinction between this translation and others tend to be in the area of word useage, such as “immersion” for baptism, “do homage” for worship, and “shofar” for trumpet. References to hell are rendered as Sheol in the Old Testament, and as Hades, Gehenna, and Tartarus in the New Testament. This translation also renders all references to James in the New Testament as Jacob, even so that the book of James is called the book of Jacob. First published on the Internet in 2003, there have been at least two updates since then, with the latest being in 2006.
I would consider this Bible a literal version which is seen by the care of the translator in trying to not introduce or repeat the bias in other Bibles such as the KJV.

Voice in the Wilderness Bible [VW]
ch49 The Biblical Pastor: The Biblical Duty outlines the duties of a pastor.
Topics: Pastoral Watchcare | Threats to wicked Pastors | Spiritual feeding | Being a Watchman (warning and protecting) | Pastoral Visitation | Intercession by prayer | Pastoring because you love Christ.
Excerpt: The concept of “visit” or “visitation” refers to the pastoral duty (spiritual watchcare of others) in which he analyzes the problems to effect a remedy. This concept is basically “visit”. Jesus identified the true believer as a person which has the naturally emerging joy to serve and help others.
Read the tract: ch49 The Biblical Pastor: The Biblical Duty.
MySwordmodules is a website dedicate to the MySword Bible Program for Androird devices. We host MySword Modules.
Buy me a Cup of Coffee! To make an old Christian work into a PDF, a module for theWord, MySword, or eSword takes time. These works are scans from old books, and as such, I have to go through the text some dozen times looking for places where the OCR is incorrect, blurred, or just skipped something.
Text Editing.Then there are the old Bible references like John iii. 16. Many young Christians and even preachers do not know the Latin system for books of the Bible. I convert Roman numerals in these books to Arabic (iii. to 3).
I have had to invest days and days in writing macros to read a long text, and make substitutions (for the above, search for "iii" and replace with "3:"). Unfortunately, with Psalms you have to start with 150 in Roman numerals (CL) and work your way backwards. But using macros, it is almost instantaneous the next time I need this. Work smarter, not harder. All this takes time and patience, (and being smart enough to do it in a macro language) (as well as a lot of coffee) and then making the text into theWord or eSword, mySword or a PDF.
Please donate something to me once every 6 months or even once a year, even if it is only $5, so that I can pay my bills for hosting, and also keep things moving along. It costs me about $10 per month to keep a website on the Internet. My websites also contains ads which have links to my sermons, tracts, books, that I have written. These keep my works before visitors, even if they are not visiting the specific website where I have them stored. It is my own "web" internally of my own sites with links to good Christian literature. May God bless for your prayers and donations.
Take a look at a few of our tracts:
salv76 suffering should seek his Savior - explains how we should react to problems and sufferings, we should seek the Savior.
pc15 How to fight against depression - we treat the problem of depression. Depression is not a physical disease, it is an emotional and spiritual disease that "bleeds over" and causes aggravation and physical consequences if not attended to at the spiritual-social-emotional level.
ch15 Congregating because we Love - a tract about why we attend church. Our relationship with our brethren in Christ is highly integrated with our salvation and our sanctification.
SSTeen1-01 Existence of God - Does God really exist? This is not a tract but a teen Sunday School Class that I wrote answering this important question.
fam48 Men are God's Agents - Men are God’s Agents to accomplish His Will, looks at man as God wants him to be. Manhood and the husband-wife relationship.
