P A:

Has anyone switched from NKJV to MEV?

Since the NKJV was the Bible the apostles carried in the hip pocket of their Levis when they traveled the earth.... why would anyone want to change? Geeked

I am really curious about this translation, too.

Yes, replaced 1982:NKJV with 2014:MEV in my BibleGrid group for Bible searching of many Bibles for Grid display.

Thankful for MEV now having Reverse Interlinears => https://www.logos.com/product/197462/mev-ot-reverse-interlinear & => https://www.logos.com/product/197487/mev-nt-reverse-interlinear

Thankful for hard copy Spiritual Warfare Bible with MEV.

I don't seem to have the features necessary for the MEV interlinear; I think I had them when I had a trial subscription. 

I am not finding much online about this translation, but what I have heard interests me.

David Thomas:
5. LEB - Since the majority of my study is in Logos, this translation is FULLY tagged and integrated into Logos interactives and datasets.

Does the LEB offer more functions in Logos than the ESV?   If yes, what are these functions?

Wow! That's wonderful! I hadn't noticed that in my library. I really liked the MEV when it came out, and even bought into another Bible Study program to get an electronic copy of it in probably 2014 or so, before Logos had it. Now that it has an RI, I'd have to adjust my earlier answer on this thread to fit it in to my top five for 2021 - I'm sure I'll be re-acquainting myself with it.

I am a little frustrated trying to figure out the cheapest option to be able to use the MEV interlinear, without paying for things I don't want, while still being denied access to things that I still want very badly.

I think you can purchase separate reverse interlinears  for the MEV Old and New Testament.

Not sure this is cheapest option

Others will advise

Sorry my information was incorrect. You seem to only be able to purchase MEV interlinear as part of collection.

1. LEB

2. NIV

3. ESV

4. NASB95

5. CSB

I use these for a variety of different reasons. LEB is the top priority because it's a Lexham product for Logos Bible Software. ESV is my carry bible. NASB95 is the bible I use in a academic situation. NIV because it's a different philosophy than the other bibles. CSB because I am Southern Baptist.

Noticed all Verbum Cloud subscription levels include MEV Reverse Interlinears => https://verbumcloud.com/pricing (annual payment costs less per month, but when subscription ends, access goes away).

Least expensive feature upgrade having MEV Reverse Interlinears => https://www.logos.com/product/195576/verbum-9-starter-feature-upgrade (noticed Logos 8 Fundamentals ownership reduces Verbum 9 Starter Feature upgrade dynamic price from $ 249.96 to $193.54)

Hi Matt:

I thought the LEB was cool until I found the following:

LEB.

Deu 6:4  "Hear, Israel, Yahweh our God, Yahweh is unique.

I have a few issues with the LEB but that changes nothing for why I use it Hamilton.

I need to do that. I try not to bother them, even when it means paying more. But this is too far off.

I wish logos 8 fundamentals was enough. It is not. I prefer other packages and subscriptions to the verbum if I am going to spend more money.

Hi Matt:

I thought the LEB was cool until I found the following:

LEB.

Deu 6:4  "Hear, Israel, Yahweh our God, Yahweh is unique.

While that may strike your ear as odd, it is within the parameters of the meaning of 'ehhaadh. The word is not just a cardinal number meaning "one". I think the verse is best translated as "YHWH is a unity." What does that mean? Pretty much what " 'Elohhiym is " means...that is, "Gods is" [plural noun/singular verb]. Numerically, the words "unity" and "unify" by definition include more than one. That is because those words indicate that some number greater than one is to be considered "as" one because there is some unifying characteristic that binds them.

Put another way, what does "one" mean in Deut. 6:4? Pretty much the exact thing that "one" means in Jn. 17:22. How many is that? At least 13, since Judas had already been sent packing, but ultimately at least 144,002. All will be 'ehhaadh.

Remember your theosis.

Yes Matt,  LEB is a really good version, I was just surprised to see that rendering.

Shalom David Paul:

Thanks for the clarification. I am not an expert, so is not critical. I am old school, so to me the number one principle for the elect has always been:

Deu 6:4  “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. (ESV)

Deu 6:4  HEAR, O ISRAEL: THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE. (JPS)

Deu 6:4  Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD. (KJV)

David Paul:
Remember your theosis.

The problem with theosis is that even though in the East they understand it does not mean believers will eventually have self-existence like God has, in the West many groups do think humans will eventually have it. (That is the old satan scheme of wanting to be God without having what it takes [think antiChrist]).

Being a living stone (body of Christ) part of the New Temple of God (Jesus Christ) does not make such living stones equal to the Spirit who dwells there.

I will have to ask Jewish acquaintances what they think of the LEB translation of Deu 6:4 to see what their reaction is. [Even "a unity" seems fine, but unique ? seems strange.]

Peace and grace.
