Research Study Bible

Research Study Bible is based on the World English Translation. While WEB Bible is in public domain, the name is copyrighted and cannot be redistributed under the same name. Hence, it is named as Research Study Bible (RSB). It is important to note this is not a new translation but rather, highlighting and markings on the texts based on other translations and manuscripts for in-depth study of Scriptures. No texts of the World Bible Translation was changed.
