I look forward to seeing Edward's NTG collection. I wish I had the space to
keep all such editions. I have a number of different editions, the prize
being the Beza first edition of 1565.

I hope I get to admire your library, Edward, along with that wine cellar,
in November.

Some people on this list without Latin might apprciat e the NA27 with
facing RSV translation, 8th ed., 1994. The aapparatus t o the RSV includes
variant translations from the KJV of 1911, the English Revised Version of
1881, The American Standard edition of 1901, and the Catholic revision of
the RSV (1965).

The use of the RSV rather than the NRSV provides a more literalistic
translation, useful for those who are helped in deciphering the Greek text
by seeing what other translators did.
