    I recently purchased an Undated NASB - Reference Bible.

    What has changed with this translation compared to the NASB?

    Bound,

    1. I study, preach and teach primarily from the NASB95, and I've noticed some minor changes from the 1977 text, which is what Chuck Swindoll uses.

    2. Changes I've noticed:

    a. Removal of Thous and Thees in prayer to God (a positive removal, in my opinion).

    b. Removal of some connectives: and, if and so on (a negative removal, IMO).

    c. Removal of some of the archaic expressions, making the text smoother to read.

    3. But the NASB95 is still a great text of Scripture for an all-round use.
