teaching them to observe all things that I've commanded you, and see,
I am with you always until the end of the age!"
Matthew 28:19, 20
he NET Bible - New English Translation - is in a class by itself and does not fit neatly into the above continuum. Though available in paper it was originally designed as an electronic translation for use on the internet. It is quite literal, but its striking feature is the extensive notes on translation - well over 1/2 of every printed page. It is an excellent study Bible and can be used as one would use a commentary. I use it often to check on my own exegesis.
