I have KJV but the language is so hard to read. I don't have much knowledge with the other versions (I've used KJV my entire life). Can someone share thoughts on what other versions are okay for reading?

I typically like to use the NIV/NKJV. If I have trouble reading one, I'll go to the other. The other one I've seen used a alot is the ESV

I have a NIV bible! I used to have NKJV but I have found NIV to be easier to read. 🙂

In my experience with the Catholic Church we use either the RSV or NAB. Does anyone know if it is accurate?

Used to use NIV as a kid and used ESV when I went to Bible College but have been recently using both NIV and NKJ recently

Same here! I still like both but it helps to know both because the message is always very consistent but it's so much more better to understand it more
