There are two official Bible translations that one can download from the the e-Sword Download Manager that has kind of grabbed my attention, and as a result of having visited the website of one of these translations, I found to my surprise that it was related to the other. In fact the former is a total update of the latter.


So, did you know that the LSV (Literal Standard Version) is related to the YLT (Young's Literal Translation) Bible?


Trust that this information or bit of trivia is of some interest to you all.


Now I'm off to Supermarket. See yas later, and have a great day.



Stephen (Php 1:21).

Just to add to that

The Literal Standard Version is a major revision of Robert Young's Literal Translation. The Old Testament is based upon the Masoretic Text (MT) with strong influence from the Septuagint (LXX). As an example, the LXX chronology in Genesis is set next to the MT. The Dead Sea Scrolls were consulted in places. 

The New Testament is based upon the Textus Receptus and Majority Text, although the translators consulted other manuscripts: "...in certain, specific instances other manuscript versions and text-types are used where the evidence seems incontrovertible (e.g., the LXX and DSS in the Hebrew and Aramaic; the Alexandrian in the Greek)."


PS - Stephen, I hope you got your shopping done at the Supermarket and it was not to windy for you. We had lots of strong wind our way yesterday.
