    ... however, only a minority speak the German language in Belgium mostly near the German border.

    Maybe one day they will thank their lucky stars they never received a Silver sword.

    i asked à logical question, and then they started looking in Wikipedia :):), any european knows Germany in not the only german-speaking country.

    I wonder if they printed enough for the masses of Pennsylvania Dutch in the US, as well as the South Tyrolians in Italy.

    Have they changed the cover in German from “Holy Scriptures” to “The Bible” as in the picture? They didn’t change the cover title in English.

    Interesting. This may be in response to accusations in Russia that their translation “not a Bible” because it is not called a “Bible”. I wonder if they will change fnd title and cover in other language versions, and in English.

    Maybe they had to wait till enough people left the ORG to match the number they'd printed.

    This is not something new. One year ago, it was issued in the three Nordic languages Danish, Swedish and Norwegian, and the title was "The Bible - The New World Translation". It was stated it was because there are many holy books and there could be confusion as to what faith or religion it dealt with, and therefore the term Bible was used to show what it was. But I also thought of Russia.
