Versions / Legacy Standard Bible (LSB)

Version Information

The Legacy Standard Bible is a translation that—at its core—seeks to preserve and advance the aims of the NASB by being a window into the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. The LSB brings out textual connections through consistent translation of words, highlights literary artistry like alliteration, and tightens grammatical structure. By translating individual words as consistently as possible within their various nuances, it allows the reader to discern the Author’s intent. The result of this new level of precision is that the Bible reader is able to see more of what is happening in the original text than ever before.

The Three Commitments of the Legacy Standard Bible

The Legacy Standard Bible aspires to be a legacy preserved—to uphold the work and tradition that is found in translations from the KJV, ASV, to NASB.

The Legacy Standard Bible aspires to be a legacy performed—to advance the commitments of past translations by bringing forth features of the original text relative to accuracy and consistency.

The Legacy Standard Bible aspires to be a legacy passed on—to equip generations to study Scripture and continue the philosophy of being a window into the original text for the glory of God.
