For English versions I like the NASB95 and ESV

For Greek I like the GNT.

I use the ESV and NIV, mainly. I use BGT for the Greek.
I am looking forward to the TNIV and hope it will quickly be available in BibleWorks.
My one gripe with the TNIV is the advertising campaign, focussing on 18 to 34 year olds, ignoring us old geezers.

See www.tniv.info (http://www.tniv.info)

I am eagerly awaiting the TNIV OT being available, at least at their website, on 1st Feb.

I suspect that the misinformation spread about this version when the NT was released will be revived shortly.

I do like the NET, but mainly for the notes.

thanks all for replying, I really enjoy reading others opinions and hope that the forum will be used more for communication between all of us bibleworks geeks lol. Regarding the Message, where do I download that from? I went to the website that offered Hollman Christian bible as well as the NWT, but the Message and the rest of the versions aren't able to be accessed when I go there. What do you all suggest?

I went to http://www.tech.com.au/biblewdn/

and downloaded the wycliffe file then went too BIBLEWDN in bibleworks and chose Wycliffe and named the file and pushed enter. This is the response that I got:

Server Returned HTTP response code: 400 URL: http://bible.gospelcom.net/passage/?search=mat 1&version=53;

What should I do?

I use the NAU but am taking a look at NET and ESV. I agree I like the NET notes a lot.
For Greek BGT.

I like to use the NAU and NKJ. The NET has been interesting for me to look at also. I use the BNT for greek.
