We have an extreme variety of translations to choose from when selecting the version of Bible, we use. Some translations are more prominent than others but we have freedom to use the translation of our choice.
How do you determine which translation is best for you?
How long have you been using your current translation?
Which translation is your “go to” translation?
I have a handful of translations in my home. Years ago, I wore out my NIV and went to the NLT. That experience didn’t last long and I purchased a Parallel Bible. The Parallel Bible has multiple translations side by side so you are able to cross check different translations and make a firm comparison.
The Parallel Bible I was using has NKJV, NIV, NLT and the Message translations side by side. This opened my eyes to the Message translation and I quickly formed an opinion on its wording.
Now, I prefer using the Parallel Bible consisting of: KJV, NKJV, NIV and the NLT.
What do you prefer?
