The LDS Church has published a Spanish-language edition of the Bible.

It's the first time the church has published an edition of the Bible in a language other than English.

The new edition became available this week.

Utah is home to more than 120 Spanish-language LDS wards and branches. Spanish speakers make up a major part of the church's worldwide membership of nearly 14 million.

The church says a print run of 800,000 copies already has been completed.
