The Cotton Patch Version (CPV) is a modern translation of the Holy Bible by Clarence Jordan published between 1968 and 1973.

It takes place in the United States in the south, and new objects and place names are all substituted in place of the Biblical ones. For example, Jesus is born in Georgia, the wineskins in Matthew 9:17 became tires, Gabriel tells Mary and Joseph to flee to Mexico, and John the Baptist is "dressed in blue jeans and a leather jacket, on corn bread and collard greens." [1]

Similar to the Message Bible, the Cotton Patch Version tries to make the Bible relevant to modern people.
