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.
As a unique feature of Logos Bible Software, a Logos reverse interlinear resources transform your NASB 2020 with amazing functionality. See word-by-word comparisons across translations, and access Strong's numbers, the Bible Sense Lexicon, and Bible Word Study with just a click. The Logos reverse interlinear simplifies your original-language study. Unlike a traditional interlinear, which displays the Greek and Hebrew words in order, the reverse interlinear keeps the word order in line with the English translation, and moves the Greek and Hebrew words around to match, making it much easier to explore the original languages. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
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.
