I like the NRSV - especially with its incorporation of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

NET is growing on me the more I use it.  I especially like the notes.

NASB and NLT are two others I like.

NRSV -I find that it is the most balanced and least biased.

NJB-I find it has a poetic quality and fresh style. (would have put in the REB, luckily i have this oft overlooked work in a different program.but I figured you meant for logos, REB is very fresh, and thankfully a wee bit more conservative than the old NEB).

ESV or NASB would be next for the more literal look.

NAB and or NIV lastly. Both have their biases but give some interesting nuances.

The Message is always great for a totally fresh look too...

  1. NIV - Anglicised
  2. NA27
  3. BHS
  4. ESV
  5. NLT

In Logos I use NIV - Anglicised for sermon quotations, but I use NA27 or BHS for actually working on the text and doing my exegesis.

For personal devotions I still use print Bibles.

  • Journaling ESV for highlighting and meditations - about a chapter per day. It takes about three and a half years to work my way through the Bible. Then I start with a new Bible and usually a different version. In the past I've used NIV Anglicised, NKJV, NASB, Die Bibel (Luther's Translation). Next time (sometime in 2012) I plan to use NLT.
  • NIV Through the Bible in a Year for daily reading. I've been doing this since 1991.

Every blessing

ESV--as my overall Bible (accuracy, readability WITH eloquence of expression)

NAS--for its literalness

NET--mostly for its notes

KJV--for its literary beauty and majesty of expression

NLT--as a dynamic equivalent I am enjoying this translation.

ESV - My regularly used translation (current favorite)

NAS - A good literal translation

NET - For the translator's notes

NIV - Used in our church (I bring my netbook and have a parallel view) Big Smile

KJV - Still majestic after all these years!

Mark A. Smith:

NAS

ESV

I always have open the above two plus NIV, NET, HCSB, NLT, and KJV 1900, more for comparison than to study from.

 

Wow, very similar:

  1. NAS (preach from this version--most people in our church use the NAS; NIV is 2nd and KJV is 3rd)
  2. ESV (linked to ESV Study Bible)
  3. NA27/BHS 4.2
  4. NET (for the notes)
  5. NIV (comparison)
  6. NLT  (comparison)
  7. KJV 1900  (comparison)
