Oh, I agree, I ask mainly because it identifies itself as a translation, not as the N2RSV! But you've inspired me to ask another question :)

asked Statistically, how similar is the NIV to other translations such as the RSV?

Interesting, I didn't know the figure (presumably that's 90% by verses rather than words?). OTOH, "Each word and phrase in the ESV has been carefully weighed against the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek" ;)

Do you call them "ESV revisers" rather than translators because they used the RSV as a base, or because an earlier edition of the ESV rendered this differently?

Hi Debby, the other answer has been deleted so you need to make sure this one is self-contained (I'm assuming "But it does help to answer the question" refers to the deleted answer). You've really got to spell out your logic here for an answer to be helpful to others on the site, can you try and join the dots for us?

I'd start with Wikipedia and follow the references - apart from that, I'm afraid I don't know, this is the only site I know well.

I think this question is off-topic because it is looking for a list, and that's not a good fit for this format.

The question is asking about a translation issue, not for the meaning of the verse, isn't it?
