I have lost my appetite for revised and updated translations. It's not so much out of suspicion as it is out of general fatigue of keeping up with the latest versions that come out.
As I understand it, that probably isn't necessary. Lockman has said they will allow the continued publication of the 1995 edition even after the 2020 has been released.I'm starting to stock up on the NASB 95's.
I have spent the last day reading a little from the update and doing some "spot checking" of passages. I have to say that I am honestly pleased with it. It still feels like the NASB. I don't see it as a major revision. There are some places where they have tried to make the language a little clearer or more readily understandable, but definitely nothing major. I was pleased to see that they have retained peculiar terminology like "propitiation," "saints," and "predestine." Some of the inconsistencies in the NASB 1995 have been corrected, too. Many of the changes that worried people in the preview passages posted to the Lockman Facebook page early on were not implemented. One thing I wish they would have done is remove the capitalization of pronouns referring to deity. It just isn't a good or helpful convention. I rejoiced when the CSB decided to remove it.
More, and more specific, thoughts to come, Lord willing.
