NRSV - New Revised Standard Version
The New Revised Standard Version is a 1989 revision of the Revised Standard Version. The NRSV is now the latest translation in the King James tradition. It aims at being readable, but it also tries to keep familiar words and phrases from the KJV. It is a blend of meaning-based (Thought for Thought) and form-based (Word for Word) translation types. (Similar to the New International Version) The NRSV has become a standard translation for serious Bible study, especially in seminaries and colleges.
