I would really like to know the Bible most used by forum users. I wish we had a poll. That would be cool.

YLT for me. If there's an issue in the greek, YLT quite happily steps into the quagmire and takes a shot at it. He's represents the summation of 2000 years of copyists trying to get it to work.

"God will save his fallen angels and their broken wings He'll mend."

If I want beauty I read the old KJV, if I want literal, I like NAS77, Darby, or YLT. If I'm having a hard time grasping the over all meaning of a passage I read NLT. (Besides studying the original language)

#1 for me is probably NAS77.

TNIV - and looking forward to the updated 2010 NIV, which combines the best of both the existing NIV and the TNIV.

NRSV - It's generally the preferred text for worship in mainline denominations, and various editions (either Harper Collins or New Oxford Annotated) have been the standard texts in all of my college and seminary coursework.

ESV - Because, honestly, I don't find a lot of significant difference between ESV and NRSV. I could happily swap one for the other. The Lexham markup which was applied to the ESV is useful.

LEB - This one's growing on me quite a bit! I think it serves its purpose of being a very literal translation quite well.

NLT - I've enjoyed this text for casual reading.

The Message - Sometimes Peterson's interpretations are very good, and sometimes he's off on some flight of fancy, only tenuously connected to the underlying text. Still, this translation more than most others helps me see the words of scripture in a fresh light, and it's valuable for that reason. I try to approach it more as a commentary or midrash on the text than as scripture in itself.

Since our pew Bibles are NIV, I spend most of my time in the NIV. I also have open in my current layout the ESV, the LEB, the Message, the NA27, LGNTI, Lexham LXX, and the LHI.
