I use NLT, NIV and KJV. When I’m meditating on the Word I like to check the KJV bcz sometimes those other translations don’t make sense. For eg in 2 Peter 1:21- it says in kjv for prophecy did not come from the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost but the NIV trans is so long and makes no sense compared to the kjv. There are times the NIV makes more sense vice versa. I love reading NIV and kjv but I compare all three verses to see which one makes more sense.
Unless you are pointing out the heretical passion translation, it usually doesn’t matter.
I have one that I am marking in and got it at second hand Charles a book chain that sells new and used books. In case anyone is interested 😉
Love, Love, this! So true. I also have more than one bible, but each one has its own purpose. I never spend a lot of money for one. I wait for sales etc.
Girl. 😃I have watched a lot of your videos and I don't think I have ever commented on any of them before, but when you said not to just collect the Bibles but to use them, and you're talking about the money people spend, that deserved a big ole' AMEN! I just couldn't not say that. I'm not someone who wants to do all the crafty stuff in my Bible and, honestly, I don't get all the coloring and stuff that people do, which is very pretty to look at, for sure. I'm glad it adds some zest to your time in the word. It would all just get in my way visually and spatially since I like to write and I like to write a lot, so that's where I put my energy. But because I do, I'm always trying to be on the watch for a Bible that will give me writing space (ain't nobody got the money for buy and try, thank you). I too want just ONE main Bible, which is what I am now working toward. My KJV and NKJV are just blasts from the past at this point in my life. I'm glad we're doing better these days. My NIV study Bible is too big because I want to be able to carry it with me. My NLT is not a preferred translation for regular use, so while it has decent margins, I don't see myself writing in it. My Amplified is one of my faves and gets lots of use, but I realized that it's better for study as I want to be able to just go with the rhythm of the words sometimes, so my ESV is my new main for the moment until I can find a journaling one. I think an ESV/AMP parallel with margin space would be the Holy Grail! 💃💃 😄 But I won't invest in anything new until next year because I want to know I have read all of my Bibles in their entirety before I get a new one. I'll then transfer my most important notes to whichever new one I land on for NEXT year, which is 2024 at this point. At the moment, I am making an ongoing list of what I do and don't want and just watching and patiently waiting. (I'll talk to God about it too pretty soon. 😉) Anyway, thanks for a video that focuses on the function of the Bible you're reviewing and not just how pretty the cover and/or pictures are. It's hard to get to see the insides of some of these on Amazon or other sites.
I have the RC Sproul reformation study Bible. ESV
I have an NASB Picasso style Bible. It's super light and that's what I take to church and I do almost all my highlights in. And then I have a the Jesus Bible and IV and it has lots of different statements and historical facts in it and I use that when I cross reference and study. I also have a King James version and I used to write in that and write sermon notes in it but I don't understand it very well so it's not used much.
I have a CSB and I’m looking into a NIV and I’m curious on other peoples opinions is it worth it will it help me study better to have a second translation? Also here from TikTok
The Bible translation that you should read: IS THE ONE YOU'LL READ!!! It was the best advice I got when contemplating the main/reading Bible I wanted to use. I was using the NKJV/KJV in my first few years… Then changed over to the NASB. But, this year, I researched all about the CSB, as I love the HCSB. But, as the HCSB is no longer in print. When I started listening to the CSB through audio. It's like the Bible suddenly came alive to me and I didn't want to stop listening to it 😊!!! I love that the CSB is both accurate and readable and it's officially my main Bible. For studying and better clarity I love using: AMP, NLT, NASB, NIV, etc… I love using the KJV for poetic purposes and hand lettering! For Church and travelling, I have a pocket size CSB (legit the Bible fits in my pants/skirt pockets). But, I've also thought to just use my phone Bible app that has all the translations. And to just bring a pen and blank paper for note taking. I'm a minimalist at heart and I love to travel light.
Well, I don't look at it that way. I think it's really fun to find a beautiful Bible that I love.
I love this video. Thank you for all of the work you put into your content. God is really using you In awesome ways. God is so good! ❤️✝️
Is CSB any good that's what i read from and cant afford another one for now ??
Let me make a correction on this video. There are at least two very bad translations that Satan wants you to study from. They are the New World Translation (NWT) and The Passion Translation
Have you read the MESSAGE BIBLE?
So, I read my NIV thin line every day and absolutely love it. Underlined throughout. Feels great in the hands. I also have an NIV personal size Study Bible that has notes and underlined throughout extensively. However, I recently found out about Schuyler Bibles and I'm really loving the look and quality of the Personal Size Quentel's and really want one. I don't think anything is wrong with wanting a really beautiful premium Bible, especially one to hand down to my kids. I definitely agree that it doesnt save you and isnt imperative by any means. People should get a Bible that they will read and digest from but I'd really like one. What are your thoughts on that?
Would any of you recommend to me a nice Bible to gift my daughter, who is not a believer and is not much of a reader? She is 21. And if you would pray that she and my unsaved children and family to be saved, please.
Thank you for this video. New sub. 🙂
This is my personal perspective, I wouldn’t judge someone if they have a premium Bible. I have one and ever since I got it, I have spent much MORE time in the word of God. But if you don’t like premium, then don’t get one! Just get what will suit you best…premium or not. Also some publishers like crossway will sell over $50 because they actually use that money for ministry. So just know where your money is going. That’s all. Glory to Christ!
The Cepher Bible.
please can you review bible recap? I would like to know if it follows sound doctrine?
So the place to find out what version you should read would be go to God and ask him I've done that he answers me every time and blesses me tremendously knowing need as well as he does which version is best for me and which speaks the truth because some versions are weirded out and you don't want to read those😣😣😣
Thank you for a sound and helpful message here. I am Presbyterian, and have been teaching Sunday School for 40-ish years. I used the RSV Bible until the NRSV was published. My NRSV is combined with the New Oxford Annotated Study Bible. That is my go to Bible I write notes in. I had a Koine Greek tutor for a while and learned enough Greek to use reference books. I have a Greek/English interlinear with the NRSV in the outside columns. This has been very helpful and interesting. I can do word studies with Walter Bauer’s Lexicon (the BAG 2nd edition). I have an NSRV exhaustive concordance, and use the New Jerome Biblical Commentary and a number of other commentaries. Our ministers sometimes use the relatively new CEB (Common English Bible) thought-for-thought translation from the pulpit. I wanted to get one, but did not want to drop a lot of $$. Amazon had a CEB hard back large print Methodist pew Bible for about $22. I could have gotten a plain one w/o the United Methodist symbol but that would have cost $4 more. Ha ! All these books are tools, to be used and marked up. I agree totally with your main points. Thank you!
YOU'RE in SEMINARY?!?
From what I can tell, there are places in the 2011 New international version of the Bible were things could be better as far as the minutiae of syntax. This is one of the most popular translations there is; I don't see how people could see what I do and not care; there must be conscious ignoring of it. Under these circumstances, how can we really tell what is the best of the best?
My perspective as someone who was raised in a cult—
Avoid the Joseph Smith Translation, the New World Translation, and the Passion Translation like the PLAGUE. Because their "translators" have actively and intentionally changed scripture to meet their own heretical ends.
Other than that? You do you, friend. Pick a translation that you enjoy and watch the Holy Spirit do His thing.
Sorry Sister don't be lazy, KJV only, put some muscle into it.
Some things are very obvious though, there are some "bibles" that need to be avoided… just anything is not ok…
This 'Bable' book is backed up by absolutely no facts and no evidence for gods!
As a 'historical Novel', It is not proof for any god(s)
The fables are intertwined within historical places and people…
eg Egypt and the Pharaohs existed,
Moses did NOT exist,
and the Exodus did not happen !
That David/Solomon are fables…
Jonah swallowed by a fish…..Hhaha!
A 'global' flood never occurred on Earth!
[btw – any objections to these historical facts must be accompanied with evidence
to prove the existence
of any gods claimed]
