English Standard Version (ESV)

Top  Previous  Next

Continuing the fine tradition of the King James Bible into the twenty first century is the English Standard Version. The ESV is a highly literal translation of the Bible that places an emphasis on being as readable as possible. One of its predominant features is the use (as much as possible) of consistent English translations when the same word or phrase is used in the original languages. The ESV well deserves its growing reputation and is justifiably becoming the favoured translation of Christians throughout the world.
