What is your favorite Bible version and why?


I just asked someone what version of the Bible they studied. They refused to answer but insisted it was not certain versions. I admit, I like them all, I even like some Coptic stuff. I do not dislike any version. But are versions like politics? Do we need to pick one and dislike the others?

    I like your answer. Recently I have been looking at children's versions which are quite interesting. I find they all lead to my better understanding.

    Well Dana you picked my favorite go to Bible if I just can't grab onto a citation someone has given. Right now I am studying out of the 1907 version of the Douay Latin Vulgate translation. It was passed down from my Jesuit schooled father. Fun!

    Mr. Word it is good to hear from you. I find that if I read any version through the eyes of the intention to find God's love they basically all do mean the same thing. But I do like delving into it word by word also.

    Very good. You guys who read it and find it silly make me happy. I always learn so much from you folk. It is said that that crazy guy Jesus loved everybody. Now that is silly. No Way! But I try, sometimes just to see if it can be done. Welcome.

    Very nicely said Norine -- But I want to know what Bible version you use. Could you tell me for my further understanding?
