Few Bible translations achieve
the degree of respect and acceptance enjoyed by the Revised Standard Version
over the past half century. Now, with all the Bible’s literal accuracy and
dignity preserved, we welcome the New RSV. Dramatic archeological discoveries
shed new light on our understanding of ancient languages while, no less
dramatically, our own use of language changes, too. The most broadly
representative translation team yet assembled worked with these changes to bring
us the NRSV — a translation as literal as possible.
Key changes include:
Replacement of archaic words
Revision of English words
that have changed in meaning
Correction of confusing word
order; Use of common-gender words where intended
Improvement in the sound and
clarity of text when read aloud
Accurate, understandable, and
reverent. A new standard for all — the NRSV.
