I decided one day to just read my Bible. I was reading out of the New International Version my grandmother had bought me when I was a kid. It was soon clear to me that I had spent my life time listening to what others were telling me the book said rather than what it actually says. I read the Torah from my NIV. Soon after I purchased a Scriptures version bc I wanted to try it out. I like the Scriptures. It’s a great version. It takes a while to get used to the Hebrew mixed in but it just feels right to me.
That being said, most versions have similar words and the same message. Read what you have, is the best answer to me. It’s more about reading and learning in my opinion.
Hi TexasLocal00 The Torah is generally thought of as the first five books or the 5 books of Moses. The English word Torah means law, teaching or instruction. You will find these books within God's written Word aka the Bible. I recommend the NASB because it is arguably the most literal interpretation that we have today.
Awesome, thank you kindly!
i prefer the King James version myself
I'll probably just end up getting both to see which I like lol. Thanks for the response!
Bear uses The Scriptures from the Institute for Scripture Research, which is in South Africa. I find it very good.
KJV best version, if you really need something with newer word usage, the ESV, be careful though, in the late 1800s the underlying text was rewritten by nonbelievers and it’s a much shorter New Testament.
