In the simplest of forwards, the goal of this popular translation is stated as follows: “to adhere as closely as possible to the original languages of the Holy Scriptures, and to make the translation in a fluent and readable style according to current English usage.” The New American Standard Bible, or NASB, is based on the American Standard Version of 1901, still highly regarded for its accuracy. This modern revision has been widely used and appreciated by many since it its publication in 1971. Olive Tree's electronic version of the NASB is the updated edition of 1995.
