Literal Standard Bible (LSV)

The Literal Standard Version (LSV) is a Modern English translation of the Bible with several distinctive features. It describes itself as the most literal translation of the Bible into the modern English language. The first edition was published on February 2, 2020. Work on the Literal Standard Version began in early 2018, with the completion of the first edition shortly before its February 2020 publication. U.S. copyright was obtained in January 2020, but the LSV was released under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license (CC BY-SA). The open-ended licensing allows English distribution and translation to be done commercially and non-commercially by other publishers and organizations as long as sufficient attribution is included. The translation team made the digital version freely available shortly after release. The LSV became available on eBook platforms such as Kindle, Nook, and Kobo in May 2020. As expounded in the preface, the translators have defined their translation philosophy as follows: "The goal of any good translation is to produce a readable text that preserves the original autographic meaning and comes as close as possible to translating, word-for-word, manuscripts that accurately represent the original writings."
