ESV English Standard Version

The English Standard Version (ESV) Bible incorporates recent advances in scholarship and modern language while retaining many traditional, conservative theological terms. It attempts to render each Hebrew or Greek word with one equivalent English word, making it an excellent tool for detailed Bible study.

It was produced by evangelical scholars looking to produce a modern, readable, literal and accurate translation, yet one that stands in the tradition of the King James Version of 1611 (also know as the Authorised Version). It is a new edition of the Bible, first printed in 2001 by Crossway Bibles and revised recently in 2011. It is also a revision of the 1971 edition of the Revised Standard Version (RSV).

The ESV comes in various editions including a Study Bible, and is often used in diglots with other languages. It has also been anglicised for the British market. In 2011 the ESV was selected by the Catholic Church for its lectionary in English speaking countries.

Sample verse

But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? (1 John 3:17)
