Quick look up: KJV

But when I want to know what the true original reading was: every English version I can find (including some that are not found in Logos) [Oh the pain of finding a verse in a PDF format Bible]

ESV, HDNT-ESV, KJV, YLT, NIV, MSG

Every once in a while I open the interlinears and wish I knew original languages.

As a confession, I also open the Raamattu once in a whle & I try to read it in a way reminiscent of the opening credits of Monty Python/Holy Grail.   ...sorry...

1. TNIV (I've used NIV most of my life, and its cadences are most familiar to me and I like its translation philosophy; the TNIV improves on it in many ways; I'm not upset about the controversial gender issues; in fact I appreciate those changes, and I know two of the people who were on the translation committee and trust their judgment)

2. NRSV (that's what we use at my church, so I use it whenever I'm preparing to lead worship or preach)

3. ESV (I use this whenever I'm doing reverse interlinear work; I know the Theological Editor of this and trust his judgment as well)

4. NET (great footnotes)

5. KJV (a classic; familiar from my childhood and quoted in much great literature)

I also sometimes turn to NASB95, LEB, and The Message (I know the guy who wrote the latter too!)

Not sure but it seems ESV wins out as the most used!

Shawn Drewett:

I would really like to know the Bible most used by forum users.

ESV (started using about 2 yrs ago because I teach my Sunday School class verse by verse. Liked the literalness of the translation.)

NIV (for almost 20 yrs previously)

Frequently compare:

NLT

NET

NASB

Message

KJV (used for the first 4 decades of my life)

My favorites:

Complete Bibles:

NRSV - The standard for me..

New Jerusalem - Someone commented earlier that they like the poetic quality to it. I've always enjoyed it for just pure reading and hearing the words dance around.

The Message - I do like Eugene Patterson's work and find it lifiing spiritually.

The NET Bible - I find it interesting and filled with possibilities.

Incomplete works:

For the Old Testament, I'm a big fan of The Five Books of Moses

For the New Testament, I'm a fan of the work of a fellow Georgian, Clarence Jordan's incomplete work, The Cotton Patch Version.

Translations I wish I (digitally) had:

New English, Revised English, Phillips.

Disclaimer: My favorite specialized work is the Renovare Spiritual Formation Bible.

I also like to get the Apocrypha included whenever I can find it.

My one purchase (well, the one I remember - it's been a long time) at Harrod's in London was the Authorized Version with Apocrypha.

I think that's it. Until I think of something else.

Where did you get the NIV Anglicised from? I cannot find it advertised anywhere on the Logos website?

Denise Barnhart:

YLT for me. If there's an issue in the greek, YLT quite happily steps into the quagmire and takes a shot at it. He's represents the summation of 2000 years of copyists trying to get it to work.

Wow.  I wonder how long I've had this resource and never opened it? Probably since I upgraded in L4.  COOL!

1. NASB

2. NASB

3. NASB

4. NET notes (& recently ESV notes)

5. LHI

6. NKJV

7. BHS

8. LGNTI / NA27 McR Int.

9. LLXXI

10. LXX Brenton (once I get Gottingen loaded, it will be on this list as well, I imagine)

I have a question for those who use the ESV...why should I use it over NASB? Is there any reason at all...besides the notes (which I can use seperately)?

I prefer it for readability, especially in the Old Testament. Matter of preference. I don't think it is better than the NASB, just a complement to it.
