It really depends on your reading and comprehension level. You need to make sure you understand what's being said so it's different for everyone. I like many versions and to compare verses in each. I currently have a KJV, TNIV, NIV, NASB, and ESV~New Testament/Psalms/Proverbs that I keep with me in my purse. My NASB is a Hebrew-Greek study bible and is my favorite since I can reference the original Hebrew/Greek word and it's meaning. My KJV is a Thompson Chain Reference Bible and I also love that because of all the added aids (too many to list all but a few are archaeological supplement, chart of Jesus' time on the cross, some of the messianic prophesies and their fulfillment. It also comes in different translations if you don't like KJV. There are plenty to choose from. But as I mentioned, my favorite is the NASB Hebrew/Greek Study Bible.
