Revised English Bible
A revision of the New English Bible, the Revised English Bible was published in 1989. A number of new member denominations were added to the joint committee, including the Roman Catholic Church, the United Reformed Church, the Moravian Church, and the Salvation Army.
As did the translators of the New English Bible, they divided the panels to translate the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Apocrypha respectively. Unlike the translators of the NEB however, the translators of the Revised English Bible preferred the 1979 Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece to the eclectic Greek text.
There are some obvious departures from the New English Bible. God is addressed in the REB with the less formal "you" rather than "thou." Some effort is made to alter the use of gender-exclusive language, although these changes are minimal and sporadic. While there are few subheadings, the REB added some that were not included in the NEB. And there was an effort made to reduce the British flavor of the NEB.
