The Common English Bible is a new translation designed to make the Bible accessible to a broad range of people; it’s written at a comfortable level for nearly all English readers. The text ensures a smooth and natural reading experience.

The American Bible Society's translation of the Contemporary English Version Bible was first published in 1995. It can be easily read by grade schoolers, people reading English as a second language, and those who prefer the more modern version. The CEV is not a paraphrase. It is an accurate and faithful translation of the original manuscripts.

Below you can see the difference between these two versions in Genesis 3:8:
CEV - Late in the afternoon a breeze began to blow, and the man and woman heard the Lord God walking in the garden. They were frightened and hid behind some trees.
CEB - During that day’s cool evening breeze, they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden; and the man and his wife hid themselves from the Lord God in the middle of the garden’s trees.
