I would love to see this in logos in 2021 upon its release!

What is the LSB?

The Legacy Standard Bible (LSB) is a translation that—at its core—seeks to be a window into the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. By translating individual words as consistently as possible within their various nuances, it allows the reader to discern what God originally wrote and know the author’s intent. In this way, the LSB seeks to be an improvement upon the NASB, while simultaneously preserving its faithful legacy.

Is the LSB a new translation?

The Legacy Standard Bible is a direct update of the NASB 1995 edition and fundamentally endeavors to uphold it. The translators went back to the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek of every verse in order to double check its accuracy. Any changes made strictly revolved around providing greater consistency in word usage, accuracy in grammatical structure, and tightening phrasing.

Sometimes these changes will incorporate what was found in the earlier NASB ’77 edition. However, if no update was needed, then the text was left as originally translated by the NASB ’95. Thus, as opposed to a brand new translation, the LSB is truly designed to be a legacy edition. It is a version that honors and upholds the NASB tradition, and endeavors to more fully implement its translation philosophy.

How is the LSB different from the NASB ‘95?

While the Legacy Standard Bible sought to uphold the NASB 95, it has several key distinctions:

  • The recovery of God’s name, Yahweh in the OT, and slave for the Greek term doulos in the NT.
  • The change of certain words and phrases in order to ensure that English words consistently matched their original language counterparts, and that the phrasing matched the grammar of the original language.
  • The usage of weights, measurements, and currency as they’re found in the original writing. Because this translation is designed to bring the reader to what was originally written, the LSB maintains the unit of measurement that the Scripture uses. For clarity, conversions into both American and metric units are provided in the notes for measurements. This allows for the LSB to serve the entire English-speaking world by not choosing one country’s unit of measurement or currency over another. It also preserves any exegetical significance of the way the measurements were originally expressed.

The more I learn about the LSB (Legacy Standard Bible) the better I like it!  The newer and "more inclusive" versions of the NIV and NASB are not for my library.

Casting my vote for the LSB whenever it's available. Yes

I'd buy it and put it at the top of my preferences (unless it is really expensive).

I will definitely be buying it and making it my default version.  As of Feb 9th, according to a Logos support representative, it is not on the list of forthcoming resources at Logos, I assume because it hasn't been published in full.  She did point me to this page where the resource can be requested: https://suggestbooks.uservoice.com

The FAQ off the LSB sounds promising:

The LSB New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs will be available to read through this website for free beginning in March of this year. iOS and Android apps will become available the same month. Bible software platforms and additional third party apps will begin releasing before the end of 2021, when the entire Bible is released.  ”

You get the Bible (as it is available now) and you get the full Accordance 13 for Free. But it make sense first to load the Accordance Lite and then add the LSB. In this way you get more material. And for the ones who has the A Lite, because of some resources, with this you can upgrade A to the full version 13. 

It seems for other companies the release will follow at the end of the year, when the Bible is finished.

I support this idea, seeing that Lockman has sold out to the "easier English" crowd. I'm sure there will be shortcomings, but at least it doesn't appear to be adding to the shortcomings list.

Fwiw, some have suggested the LEB (Lexham English Bible) as a possible substitute for NASB95. Having looked at LEB in a few instances, my considered response is "no".

I do wonder, though...since one of the strongest characteristics of the NASB95 is its notation of "literal" translations in the margin, how will such data be handled in the LSB? My preference would be simply that such notations become part of the actual body text. If those notes are either not kept or not inserted into the text, then the LSB is simply not acceptable, in spite of any supposed improvements.
