    I have heard that the 1860's YOUNG'S LITERAL TRANSLATION by Robert Young, the author of
    Young's ANALYTICAL CONCORDANCE, is back in print.

    Here are a few sample renderings from
    YLT compared to the KJV:

    Exod. 15:3
    The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name (KJV)
    Jehovah is a man of battle; Jehovah is His name (YLT)

    Deut. 28:67
    Would God it were even (KJV)
    O that it were evening (YLT)

    2 Samuel 16:16c
    God save the king (KJV)
    Let the king live (YLT)

    Job 20:24
    bow of steel (KJV)
    bow of brass (YLT)

    Song of Solomon 8:6c
    vehement flame (KJV)
    flame of Jah (YLT)

    Isa. 14:12
    O Lucifer (KJV)
    O shining one (YLT)

    Never cared that much for Young's.

    Did note in my mind, though, that as literacy rates grew, a number of new translations (Webster had one, too) came BEFORE Wescott/Hort and the MAJOR revisions of the RSV and AV1901. They saw the need for a readable Bible for the common man.
