    What are the two Bible versions that you find yourself using the most?
    Please folks, let's not get into an argument as to which Bible is infallible, or the most inspired. Just which two do you use the most.

    I use the King James Version, and the New American Standard Bible, not in any particular order either.

    MODERATOR NOTE: If this discussion becomes an argument of "My version is the best, and you should use it", please feel free to close this thread immediately.

    So which two Bible versions do you rely on the most?

    KJV and NKJV. Boring, huh?

    My appreciation for the ESV is growing.

    Good luck with that!

    For me, NASB then ESV. NIV / TNIV third (used to be in the top two) and NET is making a strong push for a top spot.

    NASB (mostly) & NKJV (to get my TR fix ;)). I also check the ESV and NET (good translational notes sometimes).

    GNT's (since Dr. Bob brought it up) I use the UBS4 in study and keep the Reader's GNT with my NASB (I put both in a leather Bible cover and take that to church, if you even cared to know).

    My original 1945 Cambridge KJV, and an RSV without divisions.

    Cheers,

    I'm pretty much ESV only right now but also will use my NIV in some cases with my kids for school.
