    The ESV Bible (English Standard Version) is an “essentially literal” translation of the Bible in contemporary English. The ESV translation is ideally suited for personal reading, for public worship, for in-depth study, and for Scripture memorization.

    The ESV Bible was created by a team of more than 100 leading evangelical scholars and pastors. Since its publication in 2001, the ESV has gained wide acceptance and is used and trusted by church leaders, numerous denominations, and millions of individuals around the world.

    About the English Standard Version (ESV)

    The English Standard Version stands in the tradition of the great mainstream English Bible translations of the past half-millennium: William Tyndale's New Testament of 1526, the King James Version of 1611 (KJV), the English Revised Version of 1885 (RV), the American Standard Version of 1901 (ASV), and the Revised Standard Version of 1952 and 1971 (RSV). Continuing in the spirit of this great legacy, the ESV is an essentially literal translation that seeks to capture the exact words and phrasing of the original text – a translation philosophy known as “formal equivalence”. Although obsolete and archaic English terms have been revised according to current usage, the strength and clarity of traditional English literary expression have been retained, making this version ideal for both private study and public reading.
