Ang Biblia, 2011 (ABCEB)
Ang Biblia (AB) is a version of the Holy Bible in the Cebuano language using the formal equivalence principle of translation. This translation approach mirrors the formal characteristics of the Hebrew and Greek textual bases in terms of parts of speech, sentence construction, word order, and length of sentences. Therefore, readers of this translation are assured that the Ang Biblia version of the Holy Bible is a faithful and accurate translation.
The AB text may be quoted (in written, visual, or electronic form) without requesting permission from the Philippine Bible Society provided that the number of verses does not exceed five hundred (500) and that the verses quoted represent less than half a complete book of the Bible. In all other cases, the user must first get permission from the Philippine Bible Society. Permission requests must be directed to: email@example.com.
Acknowledgment must appear as follows on the copyright page of printed works using the AB text, or in a corresponding location when the AB is quoted in other media:

When quotations from the AB are used for non-commercial or non-saleable media, such as church bulletins, orders of service, posters, presentation slides, and similar formats, a complete copyright acknowledgment is not required, but the initials “AB” must appear at the end of the quotation.
