Screenshot 2013-03-25 at 8.32.40 PMAll scripture quotations and references in this blog appear in the English Standard Version and are linked to Bible Gateway.*

Why I Blog ESV explains my preference for this version, though it’s certainly not the only Bible I read. is the online ESV resource center.

The ESV is one modern version on an ever growing list of translations and paraphrases. Some are better than others. For the record, I hold the King James Version in very high regard, but my personal conviction is that Elizabethan English is simply not the language we presently use to communicate. I have read it several times.

*The Master’s Table is now partnered with the Bible Gateway Blogger Grid. Archived posts, because there are nearly 800 of them, will continue to link to and all future posts effective 4/24/2014 will link scriptures to Bible Gateway. Bible Gateway has many English translations as well as many other languages available. Visit any website you like but please read the Bible.

ESV is now a major translation in China.It is published by the NationalCommittee of Three-self Patriotic Movement of the Protestant Church in China and China Christian Council, in partnership with Good News Publishers and the British and Foreign Bible Society.I have been using ESV for almost three years now.I hope everybody will give this new translation a try…
