I have found the Legacy Standard Bible to be the most accurate of the Bibles on this list, After the LSB, I listed the translations I use the most. I grouped the ESV and NKJV together because they both have a similar literary quality and style. Then I listed the NIV 1984, NASB 1995, LEB, and MEV as Bibles I don't use, but all four are accurate versions of Scripture.

While I included the New Living Translation in this list. I use it strictly to compare to the other translations. The NLT takes liberties and adds words and even phrases that are not found in Scripture, mostly to explain what IS in Scripture. While that can be helpful, those words and phrases are not the Word of God. It is impossible to tell what is Scripture and what is not when using the NLT, without comparing it to other Bibles. That is why I would highly recommend that you should compare the NLT with such versions like the New American Standard Bible or the Legacy Standard Bible, and consider the NLT as more like a commentary that will explain difficult passages from the more literal Bible translations.

The Evangelical Heritage Version, while I have misgivings about translations done solely by one denomination (the EHV was done by Lutherans), I have found many wonderfully accurate renderings in the text, and I have found the EHV very enlightening. I would still, to be safe, compare it to two other versions, the NKJV and the Legacy Standard Bible, as the EHV uses both the traditional and modern Greek text. As always, pay attention to the footnotes in a BIble translation; they are there for a reason!

While the New Revised Standard Version is used by many in academic circles, I believe that NRSV bows down to modern culture and attempts to be politically correct.
