I don’t know about you but for me, Bible versions do matter especially when I study the word.
I love New American Standard Bible for sure! But that is not the only version I use. I mean, I am sure you don’t want me to list all the versions here but I am here to tell you about one new version.
It is called Legacy Standard Bible. Right now, copies of the New Testament and Psalm are ready and available. The rest of the Bible will soon be ready.
They also have an app you can download on your phone.
I love this version very much because it was written or I will say, translated to answer this one question:
“What did the Author intend?”
LOVE IT VERY MUCH!
Most Bible versions are answering one question: “How can we make the message readable and easy to understand to the so readers?”
While translators try to make God’s message easy for me to understand, they compromise on the message that I desperately need to hear from the Author (God).
In my opinion, the Legacy Standard Bible team did a fascinating job!
Looking forward to having the complete Legacy Standard Bible in my hand!
What do you find in this world that is as precious and invaluable as the word of God?
If you ask me, my answer is NONE!
The word of God is my only treasure in this life! It’s my only source of hope and comfort.
“The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the Lord are true; they are righteous altogether. They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them Your servant is warned; In keeping them there is great reward. Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults. Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins; Let them not rule over me; Then I will be blameless, And I shall be acquitted of great transgression. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:7-14 NASB ///
