    Is anyone familiar with a Moffatt translation, or perhaps scriptural notes or something he authored? I keep running across the Moffatt 'translation' of certain scriptures like this one today:

    Phillipians 1:20 - My eager desire and hope being that I may never feel ashamed, but that now as ever I may do honour to Christ in my own person by fearless courage.

    To me, that is a very interesting take - thus my aroused interest.

    Similarly, the "R.V." translation, which I assume means an early 'revised version' of the KJV as it seems to closely follow it.

    Thanks, and Godspeed to everyone in the new year.

    Thanks very much, Keith. God bless you, Brother.

    Not a problem, IveyLeaguer! Glad to be of some assistance!

    BTW, you mentioned the RV in your OP. Have you found an online version by any chance? I have been looking for an online RV for years, but all I have ever found is the ASV and many of the later versions. Of course there are web sites which offer many of the pre-KJV versions (Geneva, Bishops' etc.) but I would really like to find the RV online.

    No, I haven't found an online version but would love to. Let's be sure to post it here if we find one.

    There is a tool that will import certain online Bibles into an e-Sword module and the R.V. should be patent-free. That's what I would really like, an R.V. module for e-Sword.

    I don't care for different versions just to have them but I like having the serious translations - you know how sometimes just the slight difference in wording stimulates a deeper look into the scripture even though it is saying the same thing. And the R.V. quotes I've seen have sometimes been that way.

    Thanks again!
