What is the difference between NIV and NASB Bible?
Seems to me that the NASB is a “word for word” translation and the NIV is a “thought for thought” translation. Actually, I’d recommend the NRSV. It’s readable, and very accurate. It’s a build-on of the ASV, which is the most literal English translation.

The NASB ’95 is an excellent translation that falls closer to the “word for word” side of the translation spectrum, a bit far from the “thought for thought” style of the Message Bible. I recommend different translations that fall all across the spectrum to get a better grasp of what the Scriptures are saying.
What is NIV and NASB?
