NET Bible

The NET Bible is a very important translation, not because it makes great strides beyond other modern English translations, but because of its ambitious goals and it's wealth of translation notes. The NET (New English Translation) Bible team (several are faculty at Dallas Theological Seminary) set out to produce a good, modern translation based on our best and oldest Greek manuscripts and to make it FREE so people around the world would have access both to it's text and the impressive set of notes accompanying it.

The reading version (with Bible books listed on the side) is easy to use and can be found here. However, the searchable version is now in a beta format. This format promises some great resources, but the helps and articles seem a bit unpolished at the moment.
