English Standard Version

The English Standard Version seeks to capture the precise wording of the original text from the Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic, and also the personal style of each Bible writer. Faithfulness to the text and vigorous pursuit of accuracy are combined with simplicity, beauty, and dignity of expression. The translation was first published in 2001 as an update from the 1971 RSV, and is part of the Tyndale-King James Version legacy. Thomas Nelson publishes ESV editions by permission of Crossway.
