- 1. Word for Word
- 2. Thought for Thought
- 3. Paraphrase.
- 1. The New American Standard Bible (NASB) (1995 Update).
- 2. The English Standard Version (ESV).
- 3.The New King James Version (NKJV).
- (These 3 versions successfully balance accuracy with readability).
Side Note: I recommend that you also familiarize yourself with the many free electronic tools available today. You can download many great Bible apps for your smartphone (this way you can study wherever you go). I have an ESV app on my iPhone by Crossway publishers that is free and very easy to use. There are many other apps that contain multiple versions. When on my computer I will often use www.bible.cc or blueletterbible.org. These sites are free and contain all of the common English versions plus dictionaries and more.
