Version Descriptions and Information

American Standard Version (ASV) 
First published in 1901, the American Standard Version was produced originally as a revision to the Revised Version of the original KJV (which was published in 1611). The American Standard Version is considered to be a very accurate version. 

Contemporary English Version (CEV)
The Contemporary English Version has been described as a "user-friendly" translation that can be read aloud without stumbling, heard without misunderstanding, and listened to with enjoyment and appreciation, because the language is contemporary and the style is lucid and lyrical .For more information about the CEV, visit www.americanbible.org

Darby's New Translation 
Published in 1871 as a response to the increased need for new and accurate English translations of the Bible, John Nelson Darby's New Translation is a trusted, scholarly work. More than 125 years after its introduction, Darby's translation is still considered by many to be one of the most accurate English translations of the Bible

King James Version  (KJV)
The King James Version (KJV) was written in 1611, translated from the Textus Receptus - the "text received by all".  The KJV contains the "thee's" and "thou's" that many people identify with the Bible.  This Bible delivers God's Word with authority, clarity and reverence.

La Biblia de las Americas (LBLA)

Modern King James Version  (MKJV)

(Green Translation) 
[In comparison to the LITV], the MKJV flows more smoothly when reading, and yet retains the faithfulness to the original languages. In many places, in terms of individual words chosen the NKJV is actually more accurate. However, in regular reading and studying, in terms of sentence structures, verb tenses, and assemblage of phrases, the MKJV reflects an accurate rendering of God's message. www.chrlitworld.com or   www.cet.com/~voice/bible.htm  

New American Standard Bible -- updated 1995 NASB
Recognizing the values of the American Standard Version, The Lockman Foundation felt an urgency to preserve these and other lasting values of the ASV by incorporating recent discoveries of Hebrew and Greek textual sources, and by rendering this version into more current English. Therefore, in 1959 a new translation project was launched, based on the time-honored principles of translation of the ASV and KJV. The result is the New American Standard Bible®.  For more information visit The Lockman Foundation.

New American Standard Bible with Strong's Numbers
Strong's Exhaustive Concordance lists every significant word in the Bible and references each word to the original Hebrew and Greek languages used by the writers. The concordance was first published in 1890 by Dr. James Strong. His life's work was to provide students of the Bible with an accurate and functional tool to understand the language of God. He and others worked on the list over a period of 35 years without the aid of technology as we know it today. Dr. Strong's work has stood the test of time and is still recognized as one of the essential aids to studying the Bible by people all over the world.

We have embedded the updated 1995 NASB database with dictionary reference numbers based on Strong's system. The text is from the NAS Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, as published by the Lockman Foundation. This will be a separate product, not an upgrade to the standard NASB

New King James Version (NKJV)
