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are not in accord with the new orthographic principles; texts where the meaning is unclearly delivered; and texts with outdated archaic or difficult words.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.
