Bible translations - Page 2

post #21 of 23
I recently bought a New Revised Standard Version and very much enjoy it - the language resonates with me, it is poetic but doesn't seem as difficult, say, as the KJV (which I also own and periodically cross-reference). I also own a Good New Bible which is easy to read but the language leaves me flat. It's interesting to see the variations between versions and translations although I'm not educated in accuracy. I read one "expert's" opinion and believe it and then see a contradictory opinion and then agree with it. So, I just opt for the version from which I get the most help and enjoyment - right now it is NRSV.

I have both the King James Version and Recovery Version of the Bible. I find that Recovery Version easiest to read and understand.

I favor the NIV and the New Living Translation. I have a very hard time with the KJV.
