4 God so luvd da world…

By on October 8, 2005

The Australian Bible Society has just released the SMSBible, with all 31,173 verses of the Holy Word translated to phone-speak. Some examples:

Genesis 1:1
In da Bginnin God cr8ed da heavens & da earth. Da earth waz barren, wit no 4m of life; it waz unda a roaring ocean cuvred wit dRkness.

Psalm 82:3
Be fair 2 da poor & 2 orphans. DefNd da helpless & evry1 in need.

John 1:1
In da Bginnin waz da 1 who is called da Word. Da Word waz wit God & waz truly God.

Unfortunately, it’s only available for Windows (When it says “Requires Windows 95 or higher”, wouldn’t a reasonable person agree that OS X meets that requirement?)

There are alternatives for those who abhor all things Windows; Amazon has R Father N Hvn: Up 2 D8 Txts Frm d Bible. Oh what the hey; I don’t even have a cell phone, much less one that will do text messaging. I could get my message across much more quickly with Morse Code anyway, so who needs it?
