Orthodox Study Bible Text
The Orthodox Study Bible is a translation and annotation of the Bible currently in production by clergy and laity within the Orthodox Church. The Old Testament in the new edition, was translated from the Septuagint 1 using the New King James Version as the template, and is accompanied by Orthodox viewpoint commentary. The translation is put in the traditional Septuagint order with the last book of the Old Testament being Daniel in the translation instead of Malachi. The OSB is for those who are unfamiliar to the faith and is used as an aid in worship to those who are members of this ancient faith. The first version, containing the Psalms and the New Testament, was published in by Thomas Nelson. It is currently being published by Conciliar Press.
If one wishes to study the Scriptures, one of the most important things that he must do is to acquire a good translation of the text, unless he just happens to know Biblical Hebrew, and Koine Greek. Especially nowadays, when it seems there is a new translation or study Bible that is published each year, it is not a simple choice to make. Translations range from the woodenly literal, to the fantastically paraphrased. Somewhere between those extremes is the optimal level of literal accuracy. Another popular translation that is more of a paraphrase though not as bad as the Living Bible is the Good News Translation. Many points seem very clear in the NIV that simply are not based on what the text actually says, but rather on what the translators think it means.
