RT Joshwa Bedford Which translation do you use for personal devotion and which translation do you use for teaching/preaching if you teach/preach. I use HCSB for personal devotion and ESV for teaching/preaching. Kelly Crites NASB is a good scholarly source but a bit old and un revised Almost like a final definitive edition 🙂 There is thew new NET Bible and the old Darby which a very very good literal and exact with NA28 How do you correlate NLT with NIV – 2 completely different traditions of Biblical translation ?
