    From early readings, looks like Dr mac and his team are trying to get the nas turned back more towards 1977 edition then 2020!

    Seems the biggest things will be using the name of God as Yahweh when possible, and will be using slaves!

    I do not agree with their choice of Greek text.

    Still seems to be a reliable translation though! Better then what the 2020 ended up being!

    There is no change in the Greek text readings choosen. The 1977 to now. I do not agree with their choices in regard to that text.

    Would rather keep using 1977 NASV than either the 1985 or 2020 revision, and definitely not Mac's unneeded Legacy version.

    I do not understand how it is possible that we have so many translations. I do understand the secular reasons, but ... I don't understand why and how Christians have ended up here.

    Legacy Standard? Sigh. Just sigh.

    Apparently the Lockman Foundation thinks there will be enough sales among John MacArthur fans and Master’s University & Seminary to justify another edition of the NASB.

    Sales and equipping the saints are sometimes entirely different goals.

    The vast majority of them are no good, no matter their false marketing. There is room for good ones because so, so many are bad.

    Non-secular reasons are that the Hebrew, Aramaic, & Greek manuscripts have a great many words & phrases that have multiple meanings in English that receive no help from context to reveal the best choice of English meanings to use. Obviously, different translators have different choices for such meanings, & make their versions accordingly. Not to mention the great manuscript debate of which mss. are the best & most-genuine ones, a debate that's been going on for many generations.

    The Legacy seems to be what the 2020 should have been!

    I do.
    Because most of us aren't aware of what's going on at the foundational level,
    Especially here in America.
    It has to do with not only the Greek and Hebrew manuscripts being used, but what is motivating the never-ending cycle of English translations...
    Those secular reasons being some of them.

    It's gone way past a better Bible in the English, as I see it,
    and has resulted in much confusion in these last days.:(

    I tried to use the 1995 Nas, but kept coming back to the 1977 edition!

    So many translations weakens the church as a whole and inhibits our ability to create reference books and resources that can last and be widely adopted. Bible memory resources keep getting updated to a new translation. God's Word no longer becomes something that does not change. Instead it become a tightly copyrighted product for sale, with more new tightly copyrighted and expensive resource books to match it. Expensive software is impossibly complicated and despite advertising, fails to manage all the translations at once, functioning best on only the most expensive and newest devices.

    Niv was well on its way to being the Kjv for today, but then the inclusive battle derailed that!

    As well as all the different translations, the translations themselves are not stable, and the publishers are not transparent about changes. The only version that I know of that has been frozen is the Living Bible. The living Bible is based on the AS instead of directly on Greek and Hebrew, but since there is no agreement on the Greek and Hebrew, I am not sure that matters all that much.

    What Greek and Hebrew is the AS based on? Is it the same as the KJV?
