News on the update to the New American Standard Bible

The following notice was posted on The Lockman Foundation's Facebook page:
From the Translation Committee:
Our primary concern is that NASB remain the best English Translation available. To that end, we are still working hard in the Old Testament and this means that the publication, at this point, will be late 2018 to early 2019. We do not want to rush the update because so many faithful pastors and scholars depend on the NASB and we want to make sure that you have the best translation of the Holy Word that can be put in your hands. Thank you so much for your patience while we work.


  1. Not a fan of the ESV and would rather glean from NASB old or updated on any day

  2. I believe it will be worth the wait. Thank you for your meticulous and enduring efforts. We appreciate your work. God bless you all!
