The New American Standard Bible is considered by some sources as the most literally translated of major 20th-century English Bible translations. The Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia was consulted for the revision. For Greek, Eberhard Nestle's Novum Testamentum Graece was used; the 23rd edition in the original,  and the 26th in the revision. Seeing the need for a literal, modern translation of the English Bible, the translators sought to produce a contemporary English Bible while maintaining a word-for-word translation style. In cases where word-for-word literalness was determined to be unacceptable for modern readers, changes were made in the direction of more current idioms. In some such instances, the more literal renderings were indicated in footnotes.
