To serious Bible students and to those who are sincere truth-seekers, this is a very important question. They would want to be able to read and study the most accurate and reliable translation that is available. So, which is the most accurate and reliable Bible translation that exists today?
There is nothing wrong with possessing, reading, and comparing a number of different translations. In fact, it would be good to do so. Since the main message of the Bible is so simple, which is to love God and love our neighbor, one can get most Bible truths from almost any translation.
However,to grasp the truth in all its dimensions, that is the “breadth and length and height and depth and to know the love of the Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness that God gives”, I would recommend the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures published by The Watch Tower Bible tract Society and distributed by Jehovah’s Witnesses. (Ephesians 3:18-19)
This Bible in not a “version”, it is a translation. It honestly tries to translate the Holy Scriptures from Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek into the clearest and most precise modern language of today.
There may be some prejudice against Jehovah’s Witnesses as their beliefs and understanding of the Scriptures might be different from other religions. However, they have produced a most accurate and reliable Bible translation to date that all sincere and honest Bible students can benefit from.
In most countries it is distributed at no cost to anyone that wants one. All one
An important and unique feature of this Bible translation is that it uses God’s name, Jehovah, in all places where it should be. If you have an original King James Version published in 1611, this is how Psalm 83:18 is translated:
Psalm 83:18 (KJV) “That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.” Check it out? You can do so online. God's name appeared almost 7000 times in the Hebrew Scriptures alone.
The New World translation is now available in whole or in part in106 languages according to the 2012 Yearbook. You just might have it available in your language. I would highly recommend that you obtain one and use it along with other translations and versions to find the treasures stored within the Word of God. (Proverbs 2:4-6)
Enjoy the rest but use the best Bible translation available to date, the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures.
