So when is revision complete? ESV Permanent Text Edition (2016) [LINK] Word Changes (52 Total) Beginning in the summer of 2016, the text of the ESV Bible will remain unchanged in all future editions printed and published by Crossway—in much the same way that the King James Version (KJV) has remained unchanged ever since the final KJV text was established almost 250 years ago (in 1769). This decision was made unanimously by the Crossway Board of Directors and the ESV Translation Oversight Committee. All future Crossway editions of the ESV, therefore, will contain the Permanent Text of the ESV Bible—unchanged throughout the life of the copyright, in perpetuity. ~~~~ Here are a few of the last changes Genesis 3:16 Permanent Text Verse Your desire shall be contrary to your husband, but he shall rule over you.
