Although the bible is free, the competitor's (MacOS/Windows) software is not. I'm trying not to violate Forum guidelines by promoting a competitor's non-free product. You'd have to buy their bible software and then "purchase" their free version of the LSB in order to be able to use it on your laptop.

Yes, I understand. I would not be looking to purchase additional software. Just trying get the LSB (eventually with macarthur study bible commentary).  Thank you!

You can read it online for free.  Also I believe there is a free lite version to download

I frankly don't see what advantage there is to the LSB over the NASB95. I like the NASB for its literalness, but the deal-clincher is that it has marginal notes that amp up the literalness even more. For instance, while the NASB and the LSB both have "lights" in Gen. 1:14, the NASB has "luminaries" in the margin, which i much prefer simply because it is more accurate. Why should I switch to a version that is simply less of what I like about the original?

The LSB I have downloaded on my phone has a footnote on gen 1:14 that reads, “Or luminaries, light-bearers”

If you run a visual filter on the NASB95 that turns doulos into slave and YHWH into Yahweh, you have the LSB without spending any additional money. :)

You should watch the videos discussing the translation philosophy of the LSB on their website.  One translation priority is to make the original language apparent in the translation by using the same word to translate it if doing so can preseve the meaning. This is why light not luminaries. If you don’t like this approach, fine. But don’t falsely claim it is a bad translation choice while ignoring the reasons for it. This is disingenuous

Hello - so what is the final word.  Not here to debate LSB vs NASB but will it be offered on Logos any time soon?  Thanks!
