This ministry presents to you, in cooperation with the Bible Society of Ethiopia and the Lapsley/Brooks Foundation, the Original Digital Edition of the Revised Amharic Bible of 1962 in searchable PDF Reader Format.
The first digital edition of this bible Version is the result of a
journey which, by the grace of God, brought together different people
continents of the world. The printed edition of 1962 was
computerized in 1992/93 with the blessing and support of the Ethiopian
Bible Society and Ato Kebede Mamo, the Director,
by Hiruye Tsige and his wife Genet. The format then was SIL ASCII.
In 2001 I contacted the Lapsley/Brooks foundation by email. This
was the beginning
of a blessed, fruitful remote fellowship with our dear brother in
the Lord Bradford Lapsley. In the same year, I developed a software
the SIL format to the up-to-date UNICODE format (UTF-8). After
completion of this version Todd Lingren from bible.org
contacted me, because
they wanted to publish it. I provided the files and they converted
it to HTML format. This version is published since then on bible.org.
I converted the data to XML format in 2004, which has been used by
different sites in the Internet.
