The Cornilescu translation of the Bible, first published in 1921, remains the most popular version among Romanian evangelicals. However, although it has aged well, the version needed a revision. Accordingly, in 2015, the British and Foreign Bible Society, together with its Romanian partner, the Inter-confessional Romanian Bible Society, commissioned a panel of nine Romanian scholars to carefully revise the text.
