Geneva Bible:


1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and that Word was God.
2 This same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by it, and without it was made nothing that was made.
4 In it was life, and the life was the light of men.
5 And that light shineth in the darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 This same came for a witness, to bear witness of the light, that all men through him might believe.
8 He was not the light, but was sent to bear witness of the light.
9 This was the true light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them he gave prerogative to be the sons of God, even to them that believe in his Name.
13 Which are born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we saw the glory thereof, as the glory of the only begotten Son of the Father) full of grace and truth.

Wycliffe Bible:

CAP 1
1 In the bigynnyng was the word, and the word was at God, and God was the word.
2 This was in the bigynnyng at God.
3 Alle thingis weren maad bi hym, and withouten hym was maad no thing, that thing that was maad.
4 In hym was lijf, and the lijf was the liyt of men; and the liyt schyneth in derknessis,
5 and derknessis comprehendiden not it.
6 A man was sent fro God, to whom the name was Joon.
7 This man cam in to witnessyng, that he schulde bere witnessing of the liyt, that alle men schulden bileue bi hym.
8 He was not the liyt, but that he schulde bere witnessing of the liyt.
9 There was a very liyt, which liytneth ech man that cometh in to this world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was maad bi hym, and the world knew hym not.
11 He cam in to his owne thingis, and hise resseyueden hym not.
12 But hou many euer resseyueden hym, he yaf to hem power to be maad the sones of God, to hem that bileueden in his name; the whiche not of bloodis,
13 nether of the wille of fleische, nether of the wille of man, but ben borun of God.
14 And the word was maad man, and dwellyde among vs, and we han seyn the glorie of hym, as the glorie of the `oon bigetun sone of the fadir, ful of grace and of treuthe.

Tyndale translation:

Chapter 1
1 In the beginnynge was the worde and the worde was with God: and the worde was God.
2 The same was in the beginnynge with God.
3 All thinges were made by it and with out it was made nothinge that was made.
4 In it was lyfe and the lyfe was ye lyght of men
5 and the lyght shyneth in the darcknes but the darcknes comprehended it not.
6 There was a man sent from God whose name was Iohn.
7 The same cam as a witnes to beare witnes of the lyght that all men through him myght beleve.
8 He was not that lyght: but to beare witnes of the lyght.
9 That was a true lyght which lyghteth all men that come into the worlde.
10 He was in ye worlde and the worlde was made by him: and yet the worlde knewe him not.
11 He cam amonge his (awne) and his awne receaved him not.
12 But as meny as receaved him to them he gave power to be the sonnes of God in yt they beleved on his name:
13 which were borne not of bloude nor of the will of the flesshe nor yet of the will of man: but of God.
14 And the worde was made flesshe and dwelt amonge vs and we sawe the glory of it as the glory of the only begotten sonne of ye father which worde was full of grace and verite.

Coverdale Bible John 1 1 In the begynnynge was the worde, and the worde was with God, and God was ye worde. 2 The same was in the begynnynge wt God. 3 All thinges were made by the same, and without the same was made nothinge that was made. 4 In him was the life, and the life was the light of men: 5 and the light shyneth in the darknesse, and the darknesse comprehended it not. 6 There was sent from God a man, whose name was Ihon. 7 The same came for a witnesse, to beare wytnesse of ye light, that thorow him they all might beleue. 8 He was not that light, but that he might beare witnesse of ye light. 9 That was the true light, which lighteth all men, that come in to this worlde. 10 He was in the worlde, & the worlde was made by him, and ye worlde knewe him not. 11 He came in to his awne, and his awne receaued him not. 12 But as many as receaued him, to them gaue he power to be the children of God: euen soch as beleue in his name. 13 Which are not borne of bloude, ner of the wyl of the flesh, ner of the wyl of man, but of God. 14 And the worde became flesh, and dwelt amonge vs: and we sawe his glory, a glory as of the onely begotte sonne of the father, full of grace and trueth.

Leeser's The Twenty-Four Books of the Holy Scripture

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the spirit of God was waving over the face of the waters.
Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light; and there was light.
Gen 1:4 And God saw the light that it was good; and God divided between the light and the darkness.
Gen 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And it was evening and it was morning, the first day.
Gen 1:6 And God said, Let there be an expansion in the midst of the waters, and let it divide between waters and waters.
Gen 1:7 And God made the expansion, and divided between the waters which were under the expansion and the waters which were above the expansion: and it was so.
Gen 1:8 And God called the expansion Heaven. And it was evening and it was morning, the second day.
Gen 1:9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land be visible: and it was so.
Gen 1:10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters he called Seas: and God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, herbs yielding seed, fruit–trees yielding fruit after their kind, in which its seed is upon the earth: and it was so.
Gen 1:12 And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees yielding fruit, in which its seed is after their kind: and God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:13 And it was evening and it was morning, the third day.
Gen 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the expansion of the heaven to divide between the day and the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years;
Gen 1:15 And let them be for lights in the expansion of the heaven, to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
Gen 1:16 And God made the two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; and the stars.
Gen 1:17 And God set them in the expansion of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
Gen 1:18 And to rule by day and by night, and to divide between the light and the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:19 And it was evening and it was morning, the fourth day.
Gen 1:20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly moving creatures that have life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open expansion of the heaven.

Julia Smith's Bible was an interesting story. She wanted a literal translation, and ended up learning both greek and hebrew, and finished it in 1855. She consulted with Prof Young and in 1862 Young's Literal was published. Today (literally) you can pick up a 1st Edition Julia Smith from AbeBooks for $8,500. A Matthew Carey, however, goes for $48,000.

Metzger discusses it at logosres:bbltrnsltn;ref=Page.p_92;off=1588 "Julia Smith had a very odd notion about Hebrew tenses. She writes in the preface, “It seems that the original Hebrews had no regard to time, and that the Bible speaks for all ages …. I think that the promiscuous use of tenses shows that there is something hidden, that we must search out.” Paying no attention to the function of the Hebrew waw consecutive, in historical narratives she frequently translated the imperfect by the English future and the perfect by the English simple past."

 1 In the beginning God formed the heavens and the earth. 2 And the earth was desolation and emptiness, and darkness over the face of the deep: and the spirit of God moved over the face of the waters. 3 And God will say there shall be light, and there shall be light 4 And God will see the light that it is good, and God will separate between the light and between the darkness. 5 And God will call to the light day, and to the darkness he called night: and the evening shall be, and the morning shall be one day. 6 And God will say there shall be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and there shall be a separating between waters to waters. 7 And God shall make a firmament, and he shall separate between the waters which are from the lower part of the firmament and between the waters which are from the upper part of the firmament: and it shall be so. 8 And God will call to the firmament the heavens: and the evening shall be, and the morning shall be the second day. 9 And God will say the waters shall be gathered together from the under part of the heavens to one place, and the dry shall be seen: and it shall be so. 10 And God will call to the dry, earth; and to the gathering of the waters he called seas: and God will see that it is good. 11 And God will say the earth shall bring forth the tender grass, and the green herb bearing seed, and the fruit tree making fruit according to its kind, in which is the seed in it upon the earth: and it shall be so. 12 And the earth shall bring forth the tender grass, the green herb bearing seed according to its kind, and the tree making fruit in which the seed is in it, according to its kind: and God will see that it is good. 13 And the evening shall be, and the morning shall be the third day. 14 And God will say there shall be lights in the firmament of the heavens to separate between the day and between the night: and they shall be for signs and for set times, and for days and for years.

This will never get to 100% unless everyone raises their bid. This has got to be worth double the current CP price. 

I am a bit worried that this will never get made. Sad

I agree that it is discouraging but we must be patient and continue to promote it to others. Eventually I have hope that it will reach 100%.
