Why use multiple translations? Using multiple translations while you study will give you a well-rounded understanding of the text at hand. Though it’s good to have a primary version for memorization and meditation, reading from different translations demonstrates sound scholarship and can help you better understand a passage by seeing what the biblical author meant in new ways.

The goal of every Bible translation is to balance faithfulness to the wording of the original language with readability in everyday English. Typically, each translation will lean more toward faithfulness to the wording or readability.

  • Formal translations tend to mimic the forms—word choice, order, grammatical category—of the Hebrew and Greek (even though this sometimes causes awkward English, or “Biblish”).
  • Functional translations work to choose renderings that achieve the same “function” for today’s readers that the original texts would have had for their readers—even if this means introducing more interpretation than may be necessary.

The Mixed Translation Equivalence (Formal and Functional) Bible Bundle 1 includes a selection of both formal and functional Bible translations to help you discover the full richness of meaning God intended: Lexham English Bible (LEB), New International Bible (NIV), New Living Translation (NLT), New American Standard Bible, 2020 Update (NASB), English Standard Version (ESV), and Christian Standard Bible (CSB).

  • Lexham English Bible (LEB) - The LEB achieves an unparalleled level of transparency because its starting point is the Lexham Greek-English Interlinear New Testament, available separately from Logos Bible Software. Plus, the LEB extensively uses the most up-to-date lexical reference works available. Used with an interlinear, it reveals the entire translation process.
  • New International Bible (NIV) - The NIV Bible has become the best-selling English version of the Bible since the King James Version. This functional Bible presents clear, understandable English and is the most readable English Bible ever produced, the result of 10 years of work from more than 100 scholars from 6 English-speaking countries. This 2011 version is the most up-to-date NIV translation.
  • New Living Translation (NLT) - New Living Translation provides a wonderful balance of readability and authority. It is easy to understand, poetically beautiful, powerful, and emotive. At the same time, due to the careful work of 90 leading Bible scholars, it is accurate to the original Greek and Hebrew text.
  • New American Standard Bible, 2020 Update (NASB) - 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. It has been widely embraced as the gold standard among word-for-word translations. In the 2020 update, every aspect of vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, and meaning was carefully reviewed to maintain faithful accuracy to the original texts and provide a clear understanding of God’s Word through updated English.
  • English Standard Version (ESV) - The conviction that the words of the Bible are the very words of God is the driving force behind the translation of the English Standard Version Bible. The ESV does not try to “improve” on the original text in light of today’s culture or by using trendy language. Instead, translators have taken utmost care to express God’s Word in English that most closely captures the meaning of the original, with understandability, beauty, and impact.
  • Christian Standard Bible (CSB) - The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
