La Biblia de las Américas
Background & History

Most Spanish-speaking Christians rely on one version of the Bible, the Reina Valera, which was first published in 1569, 42 years before the King JamesVersion. In the absence of an exact, modern translation, many people are turning to paraphrases of God's Word. Recognizing the critical need for a highly accurate, contemporary translation of the Bible, The Lockman Foundation has produced La Biblia de las Américas (The Bible of the Americas).

This is a new translation of the Scriptures from the original languages. Completed in 1986 by a team of Latin American evangelical Bible scholars, La Biblia de las Américasis an original work translated from the Hebrew-Aramaic and Greek directly into modern Spanish. La Biblia de las Américas presents the Word of God in a clear and flowing style while strictly adhering to the Hebrew and Greek texts. Following the same principles of translation set for the NASBLa Biblia de las Américas is understandable to the general public and also suitable for serious study.

Literal, Dependable, and Easy to Read

LITERAL: La Biblia de las Américas is translated directly from the original Hebrew-Aramaic, and Greek texts into Spanish, taking into account each word in these original languages.  La Biblia de las Américas translates (does not interpret) the meaning of the words in the original languages.  Therefore, you can read it with the security and conviction that you are reading the WORD OF GOD. 

DEPENDABLE: La Biblia de las Américas was translated literally and objectively.  You can trust that the words of the original languages are represented with accuracy and clarity.  La Biblia de las Américas is the first Bible in Spanish that was produced by an international and interdenominational team of evangelical scholars from all regions of Latin America, and also from Spain, and the United States.  It was finished in 1986 after fifteen years of arduous work.  The Lockman Foundation, which produced La Biblia de las Américas is known in the Bible publishing field as a leader in the production and publication of Bibles faithful to the original languages.

EASY TO READ:  The rules of modern Spanish grammar have been observed in an easy and readable style, producing a text of high literary quality, which is easily understood.
