  1. This is Kevin Davis I have a question about what translation of the Bible. to memorize from and study.Thank You! Rodeohorses77 @gmail.com

      Most big Bible guys (like J.I. Packer, editor of the English Standard Version- ESV) recommend living with three types of Bibles:

      1. Memorizing Bible – Most choose the King James because it is written in rhyme, Iambic Pentameter to be exact. Shakespeare used it and it is the meter for Mary Had a Little Lamb. It is much easier to memorize when the words are spoken in a sing-song fashion. The words (most of them that are not too antiquated) roll off the tongue and the wording is more concise.
      2. Study Bible – There are two types of translations – a word-for-word and a thought-for-thought. The first is the only one to use because you can actually look up the words and compare them back to the Greek. I use the New American Standard Bible (NASB) for all my study time. I use Marvin Vincent. AT Robertson, and Kenneth Wuest word study helps as I go along. I use Olive Tree mobile software. I could go on forever on this subject but word-for-word is the only way to go. Use – King James, New King James, NASB, ESV,
      3. Reading Bible – Thought-for-thought translations are okay for this. I read from my NASB but word-for-word translations are not considered as fluid and readable. You can change translations to allow yourself to be surprised by the text. You could use the New International Version (NIV) for this but I think it is a terrible translation. The ESV is also pretty good for reading, and it would be my second choice for study after NASB. There are many to choose from, as I mention, switch them up and see new things in the word.

      I like the NASB because it is good, accurate, word-for-word, and is closer to the King James (which I used for years) than the New King James. I also do not use a Life Study type Bible with all the notes and stuff. I never use them and most of the notes never pertain to what I am studying. I have a Bible with no notes and wide margins for my own written (mech. pencil) notes. I use the Greek word study commentaries every day. It is amazing what you can glean from a discussion of the original Greek word usage. Doctrine commentaries are worthless to me. They are just a bunch of intellectual opinions.

      I hope this helps. Rex
