    Try the Black Language Bible, I believe that's what it's really called.

    No cigar.


    I don't believe it exists. Outside of the KJVO jokes, there is not much I could find on it.


    I may have to add it the the myths that make you go grrrrr thread.

    I actually saw an ebonics Bible from the early '90s. To this day, I weep and pour ashes on my head that I didn't buy it: especially as it was the lame early '90s ebonics.

    "Yo, Teacher! We caught this ho doing the wild thang...." (Jn. 8:4).




    Apparently it existed but was short-lived, like most modern versions.

    It's funny that everyone quotes it differently, almost as if it was being made up on the spot.

    [1] In da beginnin' Big Daddy created da heaven an' da earth.
    [2] And da earth wuz widdout form, an' void; an' darkness wuz upon da face o' da deep. And da Spirit o' Big Daddy groved upon da face o' da waters.
    [3] And Big Daddy enunciated, Let dere be light y'all: an' dere wuz light.
    [4] And Big Daddy seen da light, dat it wuz xxx xxx: an' Big Daddy divided da light from da darkness.
    [5] And Big Daddy called da light Day, an' da darkness Night. And da evenin' an' da mornin' wuz da first day.
    [6] And Big Daddy articulated, Hey xxxxxx, let dere be uh firmament in da midst o' da waters, an' let it divide da waters from da other waters.
    [7] And Big Daddy made da firmament, an' divided da waters which wuz under da firmament from da waters which wuz above da firmament: an' it wuz so.
    [8] And Big Daddy called da firmament Heaven. And da evening an' da morning wuz da second day.
    [9] And Big Daddy rapped, Let da waters under da heaven be gathered together unto one place, an' let da dry land appear: an' it wuz so.
    [10] And Big Daddy called da dry land Earth; an' da gathering together o' da waters called he Seas: an' Big Daddy seen dat it wuz xxxx-tight.
    [11] And Big Daddy did verbalize, Let da earth bring forth grass, da herb yielding seed, an' da fruit tree yielding fruit afta his kind, whose seed iz in itself, upon da earth: an' it wuz so.
    [12] And da earth brought forth grass, an' herb yielding seed afta his kind, an' da tree yielding fruit, whose seed wuz in itself, afta his kind: an' Big Daddy seen dat it wuz xxxx-tight.
    [13] And da evening an' da morning wuz da third day.
    [14] And Big Daddy pontificated, Let dere be lights in da firmament o' da heaven ta divide da day from da night; an' let dem be fo' signs, an' fo' seasons, an' fo' days, an' years:
    [15] And let dem be fo' lights in da firmament o' da heaven ta give light upon da earth: an' it wuz so.
    [16] And Big Daddy made two great lights; da greater light ta rule da day, an' da lesser light ta rule da night: he made da stars also.
    [17] And Big Daddy set dem in da firmament o' da heaven ta give light upon da earth,
    [18] And ta rule over da day an' over da night, an' ta divide da light from da darkness: an' Big Daddy seen dat it wuz xxxx-tight.
    [19] And da evening an' da morning wuz da fourth day.
    [20] And Big Daddy vocalized, Let da waters bring forth abundantly da moving creature dat be havin' life, an' bird dat may fly above da earth in da open firmament o' heaven.
    [21] And Big Daddy created great whales, an' every living creature dat be movin', which da waters brought forth abundantly, afta they kind, an' every chicken winged bird afta his kind: an' Big Daddy seen dat it wuz xxxx-tight.
    [22] And Big Daddy blessed dem, saying, Be fruitful, an' multiply, an' fill da waters in da seas, an' let fowl multiply in da earth.
    [23] And da evening an' da morning wuz da fifth day.
    [24] And Big Daddy spoked, Let da earth bring forth da living creature afta his kind, cattle, an' creeping thin', an' beast o' da earth afta his kind: an' it wuz so.
    [25] And Big Daddy made da beast o' da earth afta his kind, an' cattle afta they kind, an' every thin' dat be creepin' upon da earth afta his kind: an' Big Daddy seen dat it wuz xxxx-tight.
    [26] And Big Daddy be sayin', Let us make peeps in our image, afta our likeness: an' let dem gots dominion over da fish o' da sea, an' over da birds o' da air, an' over da cattle, an' over all da earth, an' over every creepin' thin' dat be creepin' upon da earth.
    [27] So Big Daddy created peeps in his own image, in da image o' Big Daddy created he him; xxx an' xxxxxx created he dem.
    [28] And Big Daddy blessed dem, an' Big Daddy spoked unto dem, Be fruitful, an' multiply, an' replenish da earth, an' subdue it: an' gots dominion over da fish o' da sea, an' over da fowl o' da air, an' over every living thin' dat be movin' upon da earth.
    [29] And Big Daddy be sayin', Behold, I gots given ya every herb bearing seed, which iz upon da face o' all da earth, an' every tree, in which iz da fruit o' uh tree yielding seed; ta ya it shall be fo' meat.
    [30] And ta every beast o' da earth, an' ta every bird o' da air, an' ta every thin' dat be creepin' on da earth, wherein dere iz life, I gots given every green herb fo' meat: an' it wuz so.

    Big-time negotiators, false healers and woman haters
    Masters of the bluff and masters of the proposition
    But the enemy I see wears a cloak of decency
    All non-believers and men stealers talkin' in the name of religion
    And there's a slow, slow train comin' up around the bend.

    Check Clarence Jordan's Cotton Patch version for a gen-u-ine Southron dialect version. Most amusing, but accurate in a sense-for-sense manner, and just cast in language and places south of the Mason-Dixon Line.
    NT only, and not yet complete, but better'n "ebonics" by a long shot!


    29. Next day, John saw Jesus coming to him. "Y’all look! There’s God’s Lamb, the world’s sin-bearer! That’s the one I was talking about when I said, ‘A man is coming behind me who has gotten ahead of me, because he was there before I was.’ Even I was not sure of him, but that he might be introduced to the nation, I began a pre-enrollment in water."
