Maybe? It is not on Pre-Pub, which would be our only indication.

From the Translation's Website:

Website:
Once the complete Bible releases in print, the LSB will be made available to third-party Bible apps and software developers.

And:

Website:
The complete LSB will be released in print by the end of 2021.

Based on this, the earliest we could expect it would be "by the end of 2021," but perhaps not until 2022.

Yeah, even with that I’m not holding my breath. The NASB 2020 still hasn’t been published. Smile

We are currently looking into bringing the LSB to the platform but we have nothing to announce at this time.

What market is Legacy Standard Bible aimed at? Is this just a vanity project?

Given it is just a revision  of the NASB1995  done by Scholars at Master Seminary who is it going to appeal to? NASB has never been a big seller.

Not sure the decision to translate name of God Yahweh is a smart move. The HCSB  translated it Yahweh and it was seen as eccentric and put a lot of people off. Hence why the revision CSB is far more popular.

Don't get me wrong I am a bible geek and love comparing translations, but who is going preach from the legacy standard?

Just my thoughts

The market is those who have the wisdom to appreciate the wisdom that a literal translation imparts which cannot be gleaned from a so-called "thought-for-thought" translation. It's a smallish market, but loyally appreciative, and the NASB95 is the best of literal English Bibles. Sadly, Lockman, the publisher, seems to have veered from its core purpose w/ the NASB20, so the LSB may fill the niche Lockman appears to be abandoning.

I'm not a preacher per se, but I do teach occasionally, and I may use the LSB if it improves on the NASB w/o losing its benefits. Aside from being primarily a literal translation, the NASB95 has excellent marginal notes. For that reason, if those notes do not carry over (or perhaps get incorporated into the text), then I will stick w/ NASB95.

I like my coffee black and my working text with a minimal amount of fluff. This sort of thing is always better used than discussed. Looking forward to using it. I have the little app with the NT and Psalms/Proverbs. Much rather have it in Logos.Geeked

Maybe John MacArthur. His endorsement appears on https://lsbible.org/.

He is the driving force behind it.

Who is behind the LSB?

The LSB is a joint-venture product of The Lockman Foundation, Three Sixteen Publishing, and the John MacArthur Charitable Trust. The translation committee consists of a group of biblically qualified, faithful men from the Master’s University and Seminary, all of whom are scholars and preachers. The translation also went through an extensive review process from a team that consists of scholars and pastors from all around the world.

This was the clue...he is the founder of Master's Seminary.

Glad you are looking into this, hope it turns into a pre-pub. :)

In the meantime, what happened to the NASB20? I would prefer the LSB, but that's probably a year away. I have been waiting for the '20 since October. I keep hoping for some new, but after 8 months of waiting, I think it's ridiculous. 

Any idea when? I heard June, but....

I want the Legacy Standard Bible. I just purchased the NASB20 and I hate it. Number one, it doesn't have any references and the gender inclusive is something I'm not interested in. 

The LSB is a combination of the NAS77 and the '95 version. It takes a much closer look at the original languages and applies it faithfully in English. It preserves covenant language (i.e. loving kindness) and uses the name of God throughout the OT (YHWH).

This will be a perfect Bible for serious students of God's word. I can't wait, but until then I continue to use the NAS95.

I can't say I hate the NASB2020 but it's not the right direction for thinking readers. It's beginning to play to the world. The LSB puts the focus where it belongs. Maybe I am biased, but I won't apologize.
