  • I have several that I like to use and compare: NIV, NKJV, NAB and NCV. I also have a JPS translation of the Tanakh.

  • New living translation and NIV are the ones I use the most. The KJV is the worst there is. I don't understand why so many use it.

  • For personal daily study I like the KJV, but I do compare passages with other versions--AMP, NKJV, NIV, etc.

  • None of the translations we have are remotely accurate. There's a couple websites I used that offer exact translation...and the Hebrew and Greek don't translate exactly.

    Like, the original Hebrew uses the exact same words to describe how God brought life to animals, and then man, but the translations use two different words, and because it says that man became a living soul, many use that verse to say that animals don't have souls.

    Also, the famous verse in Romans about men leaving the natural use of the woman everyone loves to condemn homosexuals with...you take it back to the original greek, and it refers to the greek practice of keeping a boy on the side for sex purposes.
