Overview

The New American Standard Bible (NASB), long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures. Since its completion in 1971, the New American Standard Bible has been widely embraced as the gold standard among word-for-word translations. Millions trust the NASB and discover what the original text says, word for word. Over the past several years, the Lockman Foundation has been overseeing a new update to the NASB text, commonly referred to as NASB 2020.

Going verse by verse, every aspect of vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, and meaning was carefully reviewed in the update process. These refinements maintain faithful accuracy to the original texts and provide a clear understanding of God’s Word through updated English. The NASB has been produced with the conviction that the words of Scripture as originally penned in the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek were inspired by God and will speak with fresh power to every generation.

The NASB strives to adhere as closely as possible to the original manuscripts and to make a translation that is both fluent and readable according to current English usage.

    I don't think it is fair to the customer to put up for sale this new NASB (no interlinear) and just few weeks later to issue an interlinear edition one

    I wonder how often the context was so unclear that it left one wondering if "let us" meant seeking permission or prompting departure. It must have been a pretty significant problem to introduce contractions to downgrade the otherwise literary English of a Bible translation. Other than this puzzling decision, It's a pretty good translation overall. I don't mind the "brothers and sisters" with sisters being in italics. It is not gender neutral because of the italics. I am pretty sensitive to this issue, and this is not the same thing other translations are doing because the NASB uses italics to clearly indicate translator supplied words. Done this way, it actually improves accuracy. The NIV changes the gender that is in the original text in over 3200 verses. That is neutering gender to cater to culture. This is merely adding information. If Lockman is listening, please get rid of the blue-green paper in your Bibles. You were putting out quality Bibles back when Nelson, Zondervan, and Crossway was cranking out substandard ones. Now they have all improved and you've gotten worse. If they can get the Chinese printers to put out good quality Bibles, you can too. Please, for us who love the NASB.

    Not a big fan of the so-called. “Gender Neutral” language. I prefer the RSV, RSV-CE2, ESV-CE, KJV, NKJV, over this transition.

    I am so glad that the best translations are becoming even better. This is definitely the case with the NASB. Being faithful to the intent of Ancient Greek where gender is meant to be inclusive of both men and women is a more accurate and literal approach. All you have to do is take Greek in most seminaries or take Greek in a solid Classics department to know this to be true. (I've done both.) This isn't about catering to culture—although it certainly does match modern sensibilities—it's about being faithful to the intent of the Biblical authors. Excellent update to this childhood favourite of mine!

    I am enjoying the version update but am very disappointed it is not tied to Strong's. I wish I had known that before I ordered.

    I have been using the NASB95 for a few years and believe it to be a faithful and accurate translation. However, it appears that with the 2020 update that they are catering to the current culture. Due to the "gender accuracy" and overall less elegant feel of the text, I would recommend staying with the NASB95 or the Legacy Standard Bible (hopefully it'll be released on Logos!)
