"I have compared his revision (RVG) with other Reina Valera versions, the Textus Receptus, and the King James Bible in my own studies
and have found it to be 100% faithful to the Traditional texts. The Spanish language and integrity of the Reina Valera Bible is kept
intact. Most importantly, IT IS 100% FREE OF ANY CRITICAL TEXT READINGS WHATSOEVER! Consequently, it reads closer and almost parallel
(barring language differences) to the King James Bible...I not only recommend it but I intend to stand for it as I endeavor to reach
hispanic souls for Christ."

Reina Valera Gomez
"Soon after being saved in 1983 I had the blessing of going to an Independent Baptist Fellowship meeting where I was
first made aware
that there was not an accurate Spanish Bible. This fact is not a mystery to anyone. For seventeen
years I have looked and compared
Spanish Bibles looking for an accurate version where I didn't have to apologize or
explain away obvious errors. For almost two years,
I have had the blessing of having in my hand the Reina Valera Gomez
and can now state, without a doubt, that we have an accurate and
reliable Bible in Spanish likened unto the KJV."
"I have been a missionary in the country of Peru since 2002. I have with great interest studied the matter of the Spanish Bible. I
firmly believe that one day I will stand before Almighty God and give an account for my decisions in the ministry as well as my personal
life. As a result I have studied since arriving in Peru, the issue of the Spanish Bible. I have read every book that I could get my
hands on, I have done in depth studies and comparisons of many Spanish Bibles, I have studied the History of the Spanish Bible, and
firmly believe that the Reina Valera Gómez is the most accurate and very best Bible that can be used for the Spanish speaking world.
The beauty and purity of the Spanish language has been maintained, as well as a strict adherence to the Textus Receptus and Masoretic
texts that the King James Bible is based on. Please visit my web site to see some charts that I have put together:" http://www.rices2peru.com

"I have used other Spanish Bibles in our work before, but I am now convinced that the RVG is the Word of God for the Spanish-speaking
people. It has never been easier to win souls to Christ, and saved Paraguayans are passionate about Christ and his Word."

"It is a privilege to be the first missionary outside of the continental US to receive and use the SRV2004 (RVG). I pray that many
others will see the benefits of this Bible and begin using it in their ministry."

the Spanish versions has been corrected
in the RVG revision. It is our prayer that the Lord would sanction
this revision with a great revival throughout the Hispanic world."

"I bought a Bible with the King James English on one page and the Reina-Valera 1960 on the other page. I very quickly started finding
NIV-type readings in the Spanish. I next ordered a 1909 Reina-Valera, but after checking a few proof texts, I found some of the same
NIV-type readings. I eventually ordered an 1865 Reina-Valera, but there were still many readings in this Bible that I did not agree
with. Then, a few months ago, I discovered the RVG. I checked verse after verse after verse, and I must say that I breathed a sigh
of relief as I found what I believe to be the closest Spanish Bible to the King James."
Robert W. Thurman
"Now in recent days, there is a Reina Valera Gómez Spanish Bible. Humberto Gómez has carefully aligned the 1909 Reina Valera with
the King James text. Reports coming to me indicate that the RVG is getting strong support and wide acceptance among the Spanish brethren".
Sword of the Lord Editor
"We have used the RVG in our churches and Bible Institute for more than 2 years. We have found it to be the most accurate translation
available in Spanish... I am proud to endorse the revision by Bro. Gomez."
Brother Tim Urling
Missionary to Mexico
"I strongly recommend the "Gomez" edition, both the Spanish and the parallel King James edition. I believe the Gomez edition
is the best work we have, today, in matching the King James Bible. I also see the hand of God upon it as it is being accepted
so rapidly everywhere. I also appreciate the good, humble spirit of Brother Humberto Gomez, the man that God is using as His
instrument in doing this needed work. If you have any question, I suggest just an honest comparison of the Bibles. If
you accept the King James Bible as God's standard to measure by, you will be pleased."
Dr. Mickey Carter
Landmark Baptist Church
God has raised up Dr. Humberto Gomez to provide a Received Text Bible in Spanish. Many people have worked with him. I
all. Without apology, the King James Bible is one of the sources for the Reina Valera Gomez along with older
Spanish Bibles and the
Hebrew Masoretic text and the Greek Textus Receptus....Around the Hispanic world, Bible believers
are begging for the Reina Valera
Gomez. It is impossible to keep up with the demand,..."

The RVG Spanish Bible, without any major advertisement campaigns, is becoming more popular all the time. There is
day goes by that VBP [Victory Baptist Press] does not ship several hundred, and some days several thousand of
bound, vinyl cover editions to the mission field without charge. The RVG/KJV, genuine leather bound, English and
Spanish parallel is
by far the most popular among the different editions of the RVG Bible. The demand for these Bibles is so
great that we
are considering a distribution center in one of the South, or Central America Spanish speaking countries. Please

In 1993 after earning my masters of education degree in linguistics at Baptist Bible Translators, and learning Spanish in 1995,
I have been thoroughly immersed in language learning and the study of the Spanish Bible conflict as a missionary in Chile. And, after
these many years of looking for a textually pure Spanish Bible that agrees with the Masoretic Hebrew Text, the Textus Receptus Greek
Text, and our revered King James Bible, we have found it in the Reina-Valera-Gómez Bible of 2004. This Bible represents a revival
of old-time convictions in bibliology that have been lost on the average Hispanic believer and pastor during the 1909 and 1960 revisions.
But now we can say that the church is recapturing the spirit of Cipriano de Valera of 1602 when he said: I implore God by his infinite
mercy that He inspire in the heart of the King that he mandate at his cost the gathering of pious and knowledgeable men in the Hebrew
and Greek tongues that they review this translation of the Bible; whom with a sincere and pious desire, that desire to serve God and
do good to their nation, that they compare and challenge it with the Hebrew text that God dictated to his holy prophets before the
coming of Christ, and with the Greek text that he himself dictated to his holy Apostles and Evangelists after the coming of Christ
in the flesh. (Exhortation to the Reader, Valera 1602 Bible) Obviously, the time of the king is long past. But, the desire of Valera
has been faithfully continued in the Reina-Valera-Gómez of 2004, and it is a wonderful work. We will be using it as our Standard in
our Spanish ministries.
Missionary in Chile
I have been a missionary to the country of Chile since 1993. When I first arrived I followed the lead of veteran
the already established independent Baptist churches and used the RV 1960. But after 7 years of diligent
study I become convinced
that the RV 1960 was not the pure Word of God in Spanish, departing from the Hebrew Masoretic
Text and the Textus Receptus in literally
hundreds of places. Sadly, at that point there was nothing available in print that we
could hold up as the pure Word of God in Spanish.
We were anxiously waiting and praying and seeking the Lords will with
regards to the Spanish text. For that past 9 years we have
traveled many miles and accumulated 1000s of pages of materials
on the subject and then the Reina Valera Gómez was introduced to
me by a good friend and co-laborer in Lord. After several
years of study and diligent comparisons with the TR/KJV, I can say unequivocally
that we now have in the RVG a pure
Spanish Bible! We now unashamedly preach from it and promote it in our ministry in the country
of Chile and around the
world. [www.palabraspuras.wordpress.com] The price is worth paying, whatever that may be!
Bro. Gómez, thank you and
keep up the good fight for the faith!

"....We at Chick Publications have worked hard to change the scriptures in our Spanish tracts to use the RVG. And any future Spanish
literature from Chick Publications will also quote the RVG.
In short, I fully and enthusiastically endorse the Reina Valera Gomez
Bible as Gods preserved words in Spanish."
David W. Daniels
"Allow me to recommend the Reina-Valera-Gómez Bible. Over the years I have noticed that the RVR 1960 often follows the so-called
critical text,... The RVG follows the Textus Receptus (TR) in the New Testament and closely follows the Masoretic Text (MT = original
Hebrew/Aramaic text) of the Old Testament....I applaud the RVG for reversing the trend to go after the modern trend of following the
NU (Nestle text as well as the United Bible Societies) text and returning to the text that God has preserved since ancient times..."
