Listening to the Bible changes the way you understand scripture. Each week on This Week’s Lectionary with the CEB, you’ll hear that week’s scriptures from the revised common lectionary in the Common English Bible translation. Our audio version of the Bible was produced with a multitude of diverse voices.

The Common English Bible Translation: An Invitation to Engage with Scripture with Your Heart and Mind

Readable: It means more than reading phrases on a page. It means truly comprehending the words, the sentences, the ideas, and their meaning. Within its refreshingly approachable language, the CEB sets the reader on a path to new understanding.

Reliable: The CEB was built on the assembled knowledge of a diverse, cross-denominational group of men and women, 120 biblical scholars translating directly from the original ancient texts—not revising tradition or inserting church doctrine. Exhaustive attention has been paid to ensure the work is impeccably balanced and rich in context.

Relevant: The times change, but the Bible meets you where you are, providing guidance for every situation you face and every season of life.
