World Modern Translated Version

I discovered this item listed on Amazon this morning.  I haven't had time to examine it yet.  The title on Amazon reads "The Bible: World Modern Translated Version of the English Bible for the new millennium, Comparable to NIV, ESV, KJV, NKJV, NASB, NLT and other popular translations."  It looks like it is only available for the Kindle, but you can read some of it in Amazon's preview.

February Update on the new NASB from Lockman

The Lockman Foundation posted an update recently on their Facebook page. Here is the text of that update:

From the Translation Committee
We are still hard at work on the next updated NASB and continue to make good progress. However, with all the details of review, work has progressed slower than expected. We now hope to finish most editorial around the 3rd quarter of 2017 and then with final proofreading the text might be done toward the end of the year with a release in 2018.
We will see the schedule more clearly around April/May 2017 because a lot of review is in process now. The results and time taken for this phase will help determine the time needed for the next. Our priority is to do the best job we can and not rush the required time.

On another note:  I have not posted much at all for some time.  I continue to battle some health problems.  While some things have been figured out - it isn't all sorted out yet.  It may be some time before I get active here again (if at all).

Lavender's New Testament

I just heard about a new translation that is available.  It is called Lavender's New Testament.  It appears the translation work was done by Dr. Malcom Lavender.  The notes were written by Dr. Russ Lavender.  You can view a sample of Romans, purchase the NT or their book The Case for a New Translation at the Lavender's New Testament website.

Thanks to JP for this notice.

New Living Translation 2015 update

The New Living Translation was updated last year.  The text is now available on Bible GatewayHere is a list of the changes made in 2015.

ESV Permanent Text Edition (2016)

The Crossway board of directors and the ESV oversight committee have unanimously decided to make the English Standard Version a permanent text.  They announced 52 changes (you can see the announcement here) which are to be the last ones.  If I were making a permanent text, I wouldn't add the "(2016)" on the end.  But as a Bible reader, I am delighted to hear that there will not a constant string of updates.

UPDATE on September 28, 2016:
As James Snapp noted below, there is now longer a permanent ESV text.  It was permanent for a little over a month.  Yes, Crossway has reversed the decision to keep the ESV unchanging.  You can read a statement by Lane T. Dennis,President and CEO of Crossway about today's reversal here on Crossway's blog.

Warning: High Village Publishing 1901 American Standard Version

I read a warning recently about the 1901 American Standard Version reprint from High Village Publishing.  Someone recently posted to a Facebook group that this Bible has bad ghosting (text showing through from the other side), a section of Exodus (verses 16:22-36) missing, 4 errors in 2 Timothy 2 and possibly more.  Be very wary when purchasing one of these.  Check Exodus 16 and 2 Timothy 2.  I do not know if they produced a corrected edition or if all of them have errors.
