Bible translations (Swedish)

Several Swedish Bible translations have been performed over the years. Until the reformation, a Latin Bible was used, but Gustav Vasa, who converted Sweden to Protestantism, ordered the first translation into the Swedish tongue.

Several translations has been made since then, including:
* "Gustav Vasas bibel": the original ordered by Gustav Vasa in 1541
* "Karl XIIs bibel": ordered by Charles XII of Sweden in 1703
* "Normalupplagan"
* "Helge Åkessons översättning"
* "1917 års bibelöversättning": used in official churches until 2000
* "Nya Världens bibelöversättning": by Jehovah's Witnesses
* "David Hedegårds översättning" (New Testament only)
* "Bo Giertz översättning" (New Testament only)
* "Svenska folkbibeln"
* "Bibel 2000": the latest official translation, including the Old Testament Apocrypha
* "Levande Bibeln": completed in September 2000, by the International Bible Society [ [ - Version information: Levande Bibeln ] ]
* "Reformationsbibeln" (New Testament only) [ [ Sv. Reformationsbibeln ] ]
