On February 28, 2013, Biblica (the worldwide NIV publisher and copyright holder) removed the older NIV (1984 edition) online Bible from all websites and digital apps. When the current update to the NIV was first announced in September 2009, a gradual transition from the previous edition (published in 1984) was promised, and this two-year transition is now complete.
It is customary for Bible publishers to focus their efforts on the most current edition of their translation, and to make available only the best, most up-to-date work of their translators. This is the case with the updated NIV, as it is for most other major Bible translations.
Since this latest edition of the NIV was published in March 2011, there have been over 450 million copies distributed worldwide, including over 11 million copies of the most recent edition.
During the transition to the updated NIV, the older 1984 edition was made available for more than two years on our website and in our apps to make it easy for people to compare the upgrades in the text as they transitioned to the current edition.
