As a student of Koine (NT Greek) and soon to be Biblical Hebrew, I am always curious as to what translations of the Bible are most popular. So what is your favorite translation and or paraphrase?

I use the Orthodox Study Bible which is modified NKJV for the New Testament and St. Athanasius Academy Septuagint for the Old Testament.

I especially enjoy NKJV and HCSB, and I also use the KJV occasionally.

I mainly used NIV 1984 until recently when my family switched to ESV. And for church, we use NKJV.

For NT study I am trying to stop using English translations, but when I do, I generally use several translations including but not limited to: the Knox Bible, The New Jerusalem (catholic) Bible, NIV UK, NT Wright's NT paraphrase and the Message.

That's the one I have on my phone and use for devotions because you don't always feel like doing devotions but ESV make them better and I really get more out of scripture by reading them. O, I know there is controversy of what translation (or paraphrase as you put it, I caught that) you use but I really think God can still talk through it. For church, weddings, funerals, etc. we use the KJV but for my personal use, its the ESV.

I use NASB just for normal reading and my Oxford Annotated NRSV for more serious "study," but I almost always look up original greek and hebrew for critical verses and read lots of commentary from scholars about things ... and by scholars, I mean people who have one or more PhDs in this stuff and know more about the language, history and context better than I probably ever will.

I would love to be one, a well. If I ever make it to graduate school and post graduate school... religious/biblical studies will likely be my focus.
