The New American Standard Revised Bible
In the 1880s the King James Version became the basis for the English Revised Version. The American counterpart was published in 1901 as the American Standard Version. The ASV has been highly regarded for its scholarship and accuracy. By the middle of the twentieth century, the Lockman Foundation, a non-profit Christian corporation in La Habra, California, felt an urgent need to preserve these and other lasting values of the ASV by incorporating recent discoveries of Hebrew and Greek textual sources and rendering them into more current English.
The Lockman Foundation published the Gospel of John in 1960, all four Gospels as a unit in 1962, the New Testament in 1963, and the entire Bible in 1971. The NASB represented a conservative, literal approach to translation. While this translation followed the principles used in the ASV, the NASB should be viewed as a new translation rather than merely an update of the ASV.
The Lockman Foundation completed an update of the NASB in 1995. The translation team carefully adhered to the principles of literal translation and made no attempt to interpret Scripture through translation. The result was the most literal translation thats both accurate and readable.
