Bible Translations

The first thing God does in the Bible is speak, so we should listen.

We live in a time where the Bible is easily accessible and there are lots of translations. This a good thing, but it can also be overwhelming trying to decide on a good and faithful translation to begin your Bible reading.

The two translations that I use most and recommend most are the  Cristian Standard Bible and English Standard Version.

These two translations are both faithful to the original languages of Hebrew (Old Testament) and Greek (New Testament) and at the same time remain readable and understandable in modern English.

They are similar in their translations but have variations on wording that may be preferable or easier to understand for you personally.

Below are Bible apps where you can find multiple translations and reading plans to get you started with your Bible reading.
