Compare Bible Translations as You Study

Bible translators make different decisions when it comes to translating the original languages. That is why comparing translations is a valuable step in good Bible study.  Logos makes it easy to spot these differences between various translations.

For example, in Proverbs 18:24, the NIV speaks of “unreliable friends,” but the ESV renders this as “many companions,” while the NLT qualifies these “friends” with added quotation marks.

The Text Comparison Tool identifies all the differences between your base text and any number of translations you want to compare. Check out the video below for a demonstration of how to use this tool in Logos.
