Some people may not be aware that modern Bible translations are sometimes updated. For example…
In 2006 the NLT was updated. And in 2009, the HCSB. In both cases, there was very little fanfare. In fact, I would wager a guess that the average devout Christian had no idea these updates even occurred.
This year two popular versions received updates. First, the NIV. Unlike the HCSB and NLT updates, the NIV was less of a tweaking and more of an overhaul. It’s practically a new version altogether. I recommend sticking with your 1984 edition.
Now the ESV has received its update. Compared to the NIV, these update are very minor. You can see the “tweaking” HERE.
