Peace, Lynden!             Am so glad to see you spell favourite correctly!         I forgot you were "commonwealth"!             *smile*

                                                                          BTW, which side of the road do you lovely people drive on?

               My favourite Bible is KJV, although I have prioritised ESV above all others!

                         My favourite Scripture is Philippians 4:4-9!

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........

Mine is the NKJV in English and the LBLA in Spanish (equivalent NASB 95).  My favorite book, chapter and verse 1 Timothy 1-6 (I have the whole letter memorized - in Spanish, though, I might try memorizing it in English for the new year though I have big chunks of it already committed to memory, but in the ASV 1901 I want a more updated English).

Blessings!

Peace and Every Blessing, Armwood!            *smile*    Thanks for sharing.

                 One of my favourite versions of Romans 12:1 comes from Phillip's Paraphrase.  Just love it!

Please permit me to share!             :::

CHAPTER 12

We have seen God's mercy and wisdom: how shall we respond?

12:1-2 - With eyes wide open to the mercies of God, I beg you, my brothers, as an act of intelligent worship, to give him your bodies, as a living sacrifice, consecrated to him and acceptable by him. Don't let the world around you squeeze you into its own mould, but let God re-mould your minds from within, so that you may prove in practice that the plan of God for you is good, meets all his demands and moves towards the goal of true maturity.

12:3-8 - As your spiritual teacher I give this piece of advice to each one of you. Don't cherish exaggerated ideas of yourself or your importance, but try to have a sane estimate of your capabilities by the light of the faith that God has given to you all. For just as you have many members in one physical body and those members differ in their functions, so we, though many in number, compose one body in Christ and are all members of one another. Through the grace of God we have different gifts. If our gift is preaching, let us preach to the limit of our vision. If it is serving others let us concentrate on our service; if it is teaching let us give all we have to our teaching; and if our gift be the stimulating of the faith of others let us set ourselves to it. Let the man who is called to give, give freely; let the man who wields authority think of his responsibility; and let the man who feels sympathy for his fellows act cheerfully.

Let us have real Christian behaviour

12:9 - Let us have no imitation Christian love. Let us have a genuine break with evil and a real devotion to good.

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........

ESV is prioritised at top

However when they arrive in Logos next year 2013, the NEW ENGLISH BIBLE and REVISED ENGLISH BIBLE will be near the top (top 5).

I too have prioritized the ESV above the rest.

Waver between this one and the ESV with ESV at the top right now. Favorite—hard to say—there are so many, but I suppose Romans 8:31, 33-34.
