New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)


Available Platforms


Since its publication nearly four decades ago, the Revised Standard Version (RSV) of the Bible has been one of the most often used translations among the largest of the mainline denominations. It is the basis of more scholarly work on the Bible than any other translation.

The New Revised Standard Version answers the need for a Bible in contemporary language that accurately reflects the most ancient biblical texts available. It is in effect a new work. The translators have turned to the original languages for their inspiration. As much as possible, the NRSV is a line-for-line, word-for-word translation. All archaic words have been eliminated, confusing word order has been corrected and English words that have changed in meaning over the years have been updated.

Laridian's edition of the NRSV includes the fullest collection of Apocryphal and Deuterocanonical books in any English-language Bible. These encompass not only the Roman Catholic canon, but also those books that are accepted for use in Orthodox churches. Even those Christians who do not accept these books as part of the biblical canon will find them useful for historical insights and comparison with canonical texts.

The PocketBible edition of the NRSV includes the front matter normally found in printed NRSV Bibles, along with all the translators' footnotes. Many section headings throughout the text include cross-references to related material. In the Gospels, this includes cross-references to parallel passages in the other Gospel accounts.

Sample Text

Psalm 1:1

Happy are those
who do not follow the advice of the wicked,
or take the path that sinners tread,
or sit in the seat of scoffers

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.

Revelation 10:10

So 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.
