Will the LSB have the same platform (non-paragraph version) like the NAS95?

I assume that it will come in the same format that the print version does.

I have the print version of the LSB New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs. It is in verse form. I also have it in Accordance and it can be exhibited in verse form or paragraph form. It is also has a RI.

Thanks for the heads up! $6 bucks is almost free so I preordered. Hopefully a reversed interlinear will be made available and they will fully tag it for fact book results and other stuff.

I looked at the product page, noted it follows one of my least favorite translating strategies, then pressed the button to purchase it so I'll be able to follow all the falderol around it. But I genuinely am glad it is available for all those who have been (im)patiently waiting for it and hope it meets your expectations.

How would you describe the translating strategy they used?

product page:
By translating individual words as consistently as possible within their various nuances, it allows the reader to discern the Author’s intent.

I have had nothing but bad experiences with translations that try to make "Greek word meaning 1" always equal "English word 1". It focuses too strongly on individual words and ignores the degree the words around a word affect word choice and the influence of collocations. Sometimes a synonym is chosen for its sound, sometimes for its connotations. A bruise is "black and blue" not "blue and black" or "dark and aquamarine" for a silly example.

I thought that was possibly what you meant but just wanted to be sure. I understand what you are saying but I try to remind myself that even a translation principle like they propose they are using is more of a sliding scale of nuances rather than a black and white decision.

Correct, this goes into a little more detail on the subject.

Joseph Luna:
I want the Legacy Standard Bible. I just purchased the NASB20 and I hate it

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.

This got me to do some more wondering. Since the Legacy Standard Bible is really an update of NASB 1995 what are the implications now that the NASB 2020 has been released? In what way do you think that the NASB 2020 "is not the right direction for thinking readers"? I would appreciate hearing more of your thinking behind this.
