"New" Old Bible (1/22/2023)
Reviewed by (Pete Fleming, Spring Branch, Texas, United States) - I have been using the invaluable e-Sword in my ministry for many years. It is the best and most helpful I have found (including several that I paid many dollars for). I just added the old Revised Standard Version (which is worth every penny) to my e-Sword app. It is still one of the best of all modern translations. I have only paid for one other bible version, the New American Standard, which is also a staple. I hope everyone who uses e-Sword will give a generous donation every time they update!
Wonderful Translation for Daily Use (6/13/2021)
Reviewed by (Daniel Juroff, Waukegan, IL, US) - When I study for Sunday School, I enjoy having several versions of the Bible available to me. Sometimes, one will offer just the right translation to make a point most clearly. The RSV is an accurate, faithful translation, and I love having it available to me in e-Sword. I had a version in print, but I think I gave it to someone and never replaced it on the shelf. Problem solved!
A Very Good Bible (1/12/2021)
Reviewed by (David Israel, MACON, GA, US) - This is a very good Bible. It is tried, used and still a standard. I have several hard copies. It is a more readable and modern translation and has fewer archaic variations. I still prefer the King James Version. I often compare the translations. When there are unexplained differences, I proceed with a word study. e-Sword makes that easy! I do see doctrinal influences in all translations. I see many in the KJV but I know them well. The RSV has some but they are not as well known to me. The e-Sword Version helps sort the translation and determine the correctness of the translation. I will always value he RSV e-Sword RSV

RSV review (2/9/2017)
Reviewed by (Anthony Strefford, Horncastle, Lincolnshire, United Kingdom) - I have had a hard copy of the RSV since March 1969 and it has served me well as a second to my KJV. However, as I have gotten older - in my 70's - my eyesight is not as good as it was. Having e-Sword is a blessing and having the ability to now use the RSV for my typed studies is great. Thank you for making it available. Fully recommended!
Good Reading bible (10/19/2014)
Reviewed by (F. Hawk, Salem, OR, US) - Nice Translation, I purchased this for one reason, to compare the verses to ESV and NRSV. Personally, I appreciated good reading. I found myself that I like to check RSV again and again that will help me to understand the Scripture. With this translation, I will definitely recommend this to any one who read ESV or NRSV as nice addition to their studies. PTL
Death and comfort of the young (10/22/2013)
Reviewed by (Otto Lassen, Rushville, MO, US) - I love this version because some of the scripture is easer for people to understand especially when at a young child's death in a family you can quote Isaiah 57:1-2 and it gives them a lot of comfort. Thank you for all the trouble you go through to get the word into many hands.
RSV for E-Sword (6/2/2012)
Reviewed by (Larry Wagoner, Carriere, MS, US) - RSV for E-Sword installed easily and works flawlessly. I use it to assist in writing sermons and preparing lessons. The price was quite reasonable. I have found E-Sword a valuable resource.
Reviewed by (Helen keith, Scottsvile, KZN, RSA) - The RSV isnt bad, but I prefer the NKJV.
Not perfect, but my favorite. (3/2/2012)
Reviewed by (Todd L, St. Louis, MO, US) - Through the years I have found some of my favorite Christian writers quote from the RSV. I actually study several versions and while I have learned of their shortcomings, I find myself returning primarily to the RSV for two main reasons: 1) It really hits the mark on passages that are important to me, and 2) the overall flow of the wording reads well. I originally got mine in a Harper Study Bible back in 1981, and now that I have the RSV inside of e-Sword, I'm quite happy.
Better than hoped for (1/26/2012)
Reviewed by (Gerald Kolf, Washington, District of Columbia, United States) - I find the integration of the different units to be more helpful than I had hoped for. I find it very easy to quickly search for passages and then to annotate and cut and paste into other documents I am working on at the time.
Reviewed by (Linden Proud, Musselburgh, East Lothian, United Kingdom) - I purchased this item to give me a greater depth of study and am very pleased with it. It has given me a new insight into phrases and verses that I was already familiar with and brought out the significance of others. Highly recommend especially with the Vincent Word studies commentary.
Reviewed by (Dorothy Winters, Kennedale, Texas, US) - I was very pleased to get this version of the Bible at a reasonable price. It is easy to read and understand, and the Apocrypha is referred to when some of my studies quote from it.
