It was inevitable: The bible has been updated for the 21st century with a new… emoji translation. According to The Guardian, an anonymous translator, who prefers to be identified only by 😎, reworked the King James Version of the bible using unicode emoji, as well as common internet abbreviations and slang. The bible, appropriately titled Scripture 4 Millenials, took six months to complete, and was translated with a program created by Mx. 😎 that matched up 80 distinct emoji with 200 words. If you’re curious (or pious) enough and are willing to part with $2.99, you can check out the 3,000-plus page work right now on iTunes.
