Most Highlighted Verses in Holy Bible: Evangelical Heritage Version

John 3:16–17: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

Romans 5:8: But God shows his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 8:12–13: So then, brothers, we do not owe it to the sinful flesh to live in harmony with it. For if you live in harmony with the sinful flesh, you are going to die. But if by the Spirit you put to death the actions of the body, you will live.

Romans 12:17–21: Do not pay anyone back evil for evil. Focus on those things that everyone considers noble. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, maintain peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath. For it is written, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay,” says the Lord.

Ephesians 4:7: But to each one of us grace was given, according to the measure of the gift from Christ.

Ephesians 4:11–15: He himself gave the apostles, as well as the prophets, as well as the evangelists, as well as the pastors and teachers, for the purpose of training the saints for the work of serving, in order to build up the body of Christ. This is to continue until we all reach unity in the faith and knowledge of the Son of God, resulting in a mature man with a stature reaching to the measure of the fullness of Christ.

Philippians 4:4–7: Rejoice in the Lord always! I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

2 Timothy 3:14–17: As for you, continue in the things you have learned and about which you have become convinced. You know from whom you learned them and that from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, and for training in righteousness,

James 4:7–10: So, submit yourselves to God. Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God, and he will come near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded people. Lament, mourn, and weep. Let your laughter be changed into mourning and your joy into gloom.

1 Peter 3:21: And corresponding to that, baptism now saves you—not the removal of dirt from the body but the guarantee of a good conscience before God through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

    It is definitely an improvement over the Evangelical NIV. Pros: It read well and strikes good balance. It’s a good alternative to the NIV. Cons: Not sure why a translation by confessional Lutherans would not include the apocrypha. Overall, this is a decent translation and worth having in your library.

    As a Lutheran Pastor I was keen to read this new translation from an American Lutheran source. One of the goals was to achieve a balance of “old” and “new” - and it seems to me that this is achieved better in the Old Testament than in the New Testament - especially the Letters. Whilst I found the Old Testament, as a whole, very readable in this translation - I often came away feeling that the language used in Paul’s letters seemed a bit dated. I realise that others would see this differently. I also thought it was a bit light in the footnotes in regards translation choices compared to NIV or ESV. So will be sticking with NIV2011 as my primary version - but will be included this in my reference list.

    Downloaded mine today! SO HAPPY! Now to get my hands on a paper copy of the EHV Study Bible. Microsoft has the Study Bible version and I am jealous, but I will take this happily for now.
