The two versions of the Khmer Bible can now be viewed online for free in Unicode!
Special thanks to Maurice Bauhahn and the Bible Society in Cambodia!
I would like to use Khmer Bible’s scriptures in translating two books to Khmer language. How to do get the permission to use your online scriptures?
If you are just quoting a verse here or there, there is no need to get permission. For long quotations (more than 1,000 verses or a whole book), you need only to cite “Scripture Text: Khmer Old Version © United Bible Societies. Used by Permission.” If you want to get permission you have to get it through the Cambodian Bible Society.
The new translation is well loved by the christian public and the New Testament is readable by the average person. However, since it is a story so estranged from Buddhism or Folk Religions it requires well trained helpers to explain the meaning of salvation through the death of Christ, for example. Not withstanding, God’s Holy Spirit works in our hearts and reveals salvation through Christ to all those who seek Jesus with sincerity. James Verner
