개역개정판 New Korean Revised Version
THE HOLY BIBLE Old and New Testaments New Korean Revised Version Ⓒ Korean Bible Society 1998, 2000, 2003, 2005 "여기에 사용한 성경전서 개역개정판의 저작권은 대한성서공회 소유이며 대한성서공회의 허락을 받고 사용하였음" (Copyright of The Holy Bible in The New Korean Revised Version belongs to the Korean Bible Society and is used by permission.)
This revised version is the authorized liturgical Bible that has been published in 1998 after 15 years of hard work by the Revision Committee consisting of scholars commissioned by 17 church denomin ations and collecting the feedback from more than 1,600 church leaders in Korea. The revisers follo wed the principle of maintaining the style and characteristics of the Korean Revised Version and limiting the revision to the minimum. Passages revised are texts carrying words that are not in accord with the new orthographic principles; texts where the meaning is unclearly delivered; and texts with outdated archaic or difficult words. All such passages were revised so that they could be clearly understood by contemporary readers.
