|TOP|The entire Bible has been translated into SMS format by the Bible Society in Australia. The latest version of the Bible enables 31,171 verses in the abbreviated text style to be sent direct to mobile phones. The verses are available free of charge on the internet.

The text versions also include, “da earth was barren, wit no 4m of life” and "We luv coz God luvd us 1st".

The International Contemporary English version of the Bible was used to convert the Old and New Testaments to text.

To receive the entire Bible by SMS, it would take over 30,000 messages and cost almost £3,432.

“The old days when the Bible was only available within a sombre black cover with a Cross on it are long gone," said Michael Chant, spokesman for the Bible Society.

“We want to open it up for people of all ages, backgrounds and interests, and the text message version is a logical extension of that.”
