Our Plans Regarding the NTV Foundation
In the year 2020 a Foundation was formed to hold the copyright and facilitate distribution of the
NTV throughout Thailand. Our name is the New Thai Version Foundation. Our goal is to get as
many Thai people as possible to read and learn from the Bible. The Bible contains the wisdom
from God that has been passed on to his people for over 4000 years. We want as many people
as possible to come to know the loving God of the Bible. The NTV team plans to distribute the
NTV in multiply formats throughout Thailand. We will work with churches, schools, and mission
organizations in doing mass distributions in the coming years.
Although the NTV is very popular among young people it is also readily understandable by the
elderly. The founders of the NTV have owned a business that cares for the elderly for many
years and we also plan to format projects that help the elderly in Thailand. We want to distribute
Bibles to them, but we also want to help the elderly poor. Thailand has a very fast growing
elderly population and we want to help elevate some of the suffering of the elderly poor.
The primary goal of the New Thai Version Foundation, however, will be our NTV Bible. The other
Thai translations available in Thailand were predominately done from one English translation
each. The NTV has not followed this model, but has relied heavily on the original biblical languages
for research and precision. The NTV is truly a new Bible translation for Thailand!
Finally, our hope is that you will enjoy reading the New Thai Version. Serious students will understand the great care that has gone into this accurate and readable translation. You will experience the joy of reading the Bible without having to depend on someone else telling you what the meaning is. The meaning will be clear to you.
The NTV is available at Kanok Bannasan and bookstores around Thailand. The complete NTV is also available on Bible Gateway and on YouVersion.
May God bless you as you develop a love for God’s Word.
