New American Standard Bible, information update

Yesterday, on the Lockman Foundation Facebook page, there was this update about the coming changes to the New American Standard Version:

The whole text is being reviewed with more emphasis in the Old Testament.  The primary goal is to maintain accuracy and modernize English. As our base texts we use Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS) and Biblia Hebraica Quinta (BHQ) for the books available and for the NT we use NA28. We don't always agree with the editors of those texts and choose alternate or variant readings when we feel they are more accurate.  Our current estimated publication goal is to have a first release by early 2017.


  1. Lockman's Facebook coordinator said "the NT is still in committee and is not expected to be ready for design and editing till end of summer."

  2. Is there a list somewhere of the revision team and who is overseeing it?

  3. It will be interesting to see the NT updates, since they are using the NA28
