What language was the Bible written in originally?

The Old Testament was written in Hebrew mostly, with a few portions being written in Aramaic, a group of related languages of the Middle East. The New Testament was written in Greek, which at the time was the language not just of Greece, but of the entire region (much in the same way that English is not spoken only in England but in many other countries as well).
