Bible Word Cloud

So, I have been pretty fascinated by this tool. It is called Wordle and it creates word clouds. I played around with it for a while then I had the brainy idea to do a book of the Bible, so I did one of my favorite books in the New Testament, the book of James. It turned out pretty cool so I thought I would try to do the entire New Living Translation of the Bible. It took me a while but I found a text file that contained the entire New Living Translation. I pasted it into MS Word and found that it had 800,851 words. Wow! That is a lot of words! So I copied and pasted the entire text into Wordle and then played with the settings a bit until I stopped on the image below. So this is a word cloud of the New Living Translation Bible.
