    What are the differences between my old nasb and the nasb95?

    Does anyone still publish the older version?

    The Key Word Study Bible is also in the '77 NASB.

    Nodak,

    I've used both:

    1. The old nasb has Thees and Thous in prayers addressed to God while the nasb95 doesn't.

    2. The old nasb has more connective than the nasb95 but the nasb95 is more readable.

    I have a newer Open Bible in the '77 NAS, and actually like the Thee's and Thou's when referring to God. It seems more reverent to me. There are a couple spots I have an issue with, but overall I like that Bible a lot.

    My children like the NASB '95 for study, it is more readable.

    I've been using a NASB 95 that was given to me by the Lockman Foundation(and other graduates) when i graduated from seminary and love it. I'm also trying to change Bibles that i use for personal study each year; i may have to check out the original NASB in the future.
