PostSubject: New Bible Help   Tue Aug 09, 2011 8:26 am

My Bible is old and tattered and I am thinking about getting a new one. I carried the beasts "New International Version" Sunday and while it was kinda neat reading it in modern venicular it also was a little disconcerting.

I grew up on the KJ version and that is what I am used too. But I'm wondering what version, opinions etc y'all have??????

My old eyes and the KJV don't work well together. I think mine is the NAS (New American Standard), version. I like it as it follows the verses exactly from KJ but just substitutes modern terms. I don't care for the enhanced version as that adds way too much to the scripture. Like someone we know from another land. LOL

I would love to get a copy of the Septuagint Bible. Well I'll be, while looking for the correct spelling of that I found this:


http://ecmarsh.com/lxx/

English Translation of the Greek Septuagint Bible
The Translation of the Greek Old Testament Scriptures, Including the Apocrypha.
Compiled from the Translation by Sir Lancelot C. L. Brenton 1851

Download theSeptuagintin PDF.
The file is styled in a clean format so you can print the different Books of the LXX.

Read "An Historical Account of the Septuagint Version"

"The earliest version of the Old Testament Scriptures which is extant, or of which we possess any certain knowledge, is the translation executed at Alexandria in the third century before the Christian era: this version has been so habitually known by the name of the SEPTUAGINT, that the attempt of some learned men in modern times to introduce the designation of the Alexandrian version (as more correct) has been far from successful.
The history of the origin of this translation was embellished with various fables at so early a period, that it has been a work of patient critical research in later times to bring into plain light the facts which may be regarded as well authenticated." Sir Lancelot C. L. Brenton 1851
Select to listen to the Septuagint in streaming MP3 Audio.Click on the open book to start playing the whole Bible or select a book to read, search, and play each chapter separately.

I've got that one too JR. The nice thing about it is the side stories and maps in it.
