New English Bible

The New English Bible (NEB) is a translation of the Bible into modern English. The New Testament was published in 1961, and the Old Testament (and complete Bible) in 1970. The NEB was a project of the major Protestant denominations and Bible societies in England. Considered one of the more important modern English translations at the time of its publication, especially in the U.K., it has today been replaced by the Revised English Bible, a 1989 revision of the NEB which unlike the NEB uses "gender-neutral" language.

The New English Bible should not be confused with the New English Translation of 2005, which is an entirely different translation.
