My collection of different bibles in English started in 1980 (a short 34 years ago). Some years no bibles were added but some years many bibles were added to the collection. My reasoning was to enhance my understanding of the bible in general by getting many different wordings or renderings from many different translations of one particular bible verse at a time, randomly as they came up in my bible research. After some time I realized that what I was really after was different wordings of the scriptures, not just different translations. Many new translations come out first with the Christian Greek portion and that is followed by the Hebrew Scriptures a few years later. But in those few years they might update the Greek text wording as well. Instead of discarding the NT when I got the whole bible (NT & OT), I now checked the two NTs to see if they were different. An example is the relatively new 'Voice' translation: The Voice New Testament 2006, 2007, 2008 Ecclesia Bible Society, followed by The Voice translation 2012 Ecclesia Bible Society four years later. 2008: Mark 12:1 ...He planted and staked the grapes;... 2012: Mark 12:1 That entire phrase, above, was deleted. I'm not trying to find fault with any translation, I'm just saying THERE ARE DIFFERENCES and I would like to have each and everyone of these differences for my own edification. I relish every translation or new wording of the holy scripture I can get my hands on.
