I have been reviewing what seemed like years of threads concerning English Translations. I seek to find which one(s) which is or are the most accurate in meaning from the scholars deem the most reliable underlying text. I have read some interesting posts on a "Modern King James" translation by Sr. editor Jay Green that those versed in Greek tend to praise for it's "optimal equivalencey" I guess translators need to be as "literal (formal) as possible and as free (dynamic) as necessary" Now I would like some input about which translation is most accurate in today's language and why. Is it still the time proven KJV? How about the NKJV?, The before mentioned Modern KJV? Is there a good translation from Scrivner's Greek TR text? How about the 1995 NASB? the ESV? the HCSB? How about the AV7? How about the KJV2000? Please I covet everyone's input. I ask for the one(s) you endorse so please don't "slam" translations, just mention the one or ones you endorse and why you do.
