    And where in the NIV New Testament does any text say that elders and pastors are, or might be women? Go to the Pastoral Epistles to back up your claim.

    Why, since they share so much in common.

    see Phoebe, as it seems to imply that she was an Apostle!

    I think most of the odd readings have been fixed in the update.

    Didn't they once translate Yahweh all of the time for God?

    The NIV reads "deacon", not "apostle".

    Perhaps you are referring to "junia" in Roman's 16:7?

    But they did do it for specific situations, correct?

    While I liked the HCSB, they translated that word in a haphazard manner.

    I used to prefer the CSB to the NIV. But I've since concluded the CSB is not what it claims to be (in my opinion).

    if you want readibility, use the Esv, for studies, use nas/Nkjv!

    Why do you now feel that the CSB "is not what it claims to be " ?

    Claims to not be that much into gender inclusive readings, yet seems to be same as the Niv 2011!

    ESV for readability?! For sheer awkwardness and inelegance of style it deserves one star. The NLT is worthy of Bible studies with other helps.

    CSB. I like less than the NKJV.

    They claim to be more literal/word for word/functional equivalence, but they're really not.
