    About 4 years ago I began to compare the wording between the ESV and NASU . At that time the ESV was my favorite translation . I have many pages , so I will just take my time here .

    Psalm 86 has 17 verses . Seven of the passages were almost the same .

    1 -- ESV poor ; NASU afflicted

    3 -- ESV adds the word do

    4 -- ESV adds do. ESV -- gladden : NASU -- make glad

    7 -- NASU adds shall and will

    8 -- ESV none ; NASU no one

    10 -- ESV --things ; NASU -- deeds


    11 -- ESV -- that I may ; NASU -- I will


    Chaper 87 has 7 verses . Three are basically the same .

    2 -- ESV adds the word other

    3 --The words are identical -- just altered in sequence

    5 -- ESV -- and -- for
    NASU -- But -- and

    Chapter 88 has 18 verses . Two are similar .

    2 -- identical

    14 --ESV cast my soul away
    NASU reject my soul

    For my convenience an E will mean the ESV , and the N will signify the NASU .

    Psalm 89 has 52 verses . Eighteen of them are just about the same or identcal .

    4 -- E -- offspring ............. for
    ---- N -- seed .. ...... up ,... to

    7 --E adds --to be

    9-- E raging ; N -- swelling

    11 -- E -- that is in it
    -----N--- all it contains

    17 -- N adds -- and

    verses 18 , 20 -- identical

    25 -- N -- shall also ; E -- will

    26-- E -- shall ; N -- will

    29-- N -- so descendants ; E -- offspring

    31 ,32 -- identical

    36 -- N -- descendants ... and
    ------E--- offspring

    39 -- E -- renounced , defiled
    -----N--- spurned , profaned

    42 -- E-- foes -- N -- adversaries

    44 -- identical

    46 -- E -- adds how long

    52 -- identical


    Chapter 90 has 17 verses .

    1 -- identical

    6 -- E -- is renewed -- ---in the evening
    ----N ---sprouts anew -- toward evening -- away

    I'm just going by my notes , some of which are meager at times .

    Chapter 91

    verses 1 and 2 are identical .

    verse 8 -- the N adds the word --on

    Chapter 92

    verse 1 -- the N adds the word --and

    verses 5 and 8 are identical

    In verse 12 the N adds the words -- man , will , he will

    In verse 13 the ESV adds -- they are ; the N adds -- will

    15 -- identical

    In chapter 93 -- only verse 92 is identical

    Chapter 94

    1 -- the ESV adds the word -- O

    verses 3, 5 , and 9 are identical

    11--- E -- but a -- E -- a mere

    12 -- E -- discipline ; N -- chasten

    21 -- N adds -- together

    22 -- E -- has become ; n -- has been

    Chapter 95

    3 is identical

    8 -- E -- on ; n -- in

    Chapter 96

    verses 4,6 and 7 are identical

    Chapter 98

    verses 2 and 5 are identical

    Chapter 99

    verse 3 is identical

    In verse 5 -- the N adds the word -- and

    So , from chapters 90- 99 seventeen verses are exactly the same , and 11 more are virtually the same .
