English Standard Version (ESV)

Available Platforms

Description

Introducing a Bible translation that doesn't improve on the original! The English Standard Version is founded on the conviction that the words of the Bible are the very words of God. And because the words themselves—not just the thoughts or ideas—are inspired by God, each word must be translated with the greatest precision and accuracy.

This passion for God's Word is the driving force behind the translation of the ESV Bible. The ESV does not try to "improve" on the original in light of today's culture or by using trendy language. Instead, the utmost care has been taken to express God's Word in English that most closely captures the meaning of the original, with understandability, beauty and impact. The ESV carries forward the legacy of literal English translations such as Tyndale’s first translation of the Bible in English, the King James Version, and most recently the Revised Standard Version.

In keeping with this legacy, the ESV retains classic theological terms—like covenant, grace, justification, and redemption—that have been an integral part of Bible translations and Christian doctrine for centuries. In addition, the ESV preserves the stylistic variety of biblical writers—from exalted prose in the early chapters of Genesis, to the flowing narratives of the historical books, to the forceful, closely reasoned logic of Paul's letters. The ESV deals with questions of gender by rendering literally what is in the original. Similarly, the generic use of "he" is retained, as literal translation and easy flow of English would be impossible without it.

Sample Text

Psalm 1:1

Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers.

John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.

Revelation 10:10

And I took the little scroll from the hand of the angel and ate it. It was sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it my stomach was made bitter.
