  1. Excellent diagram. Knowing where a translation fits on the spectrum helps determine it’s usage. For devotional daily use I love the NLT or Message but if I am preparing a message, I go to ESV now. NIV reads well out loud in a congregation and does NET. And there are a host of other older versions not listed here that are fun for occasional reading pleasure.

    • I’m with you Miss Givens! I love using the NLT to get a different spin on a specific idea. I used to use NIV as my regular version but I am a recent convert to ESV and I couldn’t be happier!
