I am interested in using some bible reading for study, since I know many of the passages already in English.
Since the primary goal is language study, it is not a priority to have the most academically accurate/rigorous translation or the most literary or "classic" translation. In other words I simply want the translation which most closely reflects contemporary French usage. In English I think the New Living Translation would be one of the best for this purpose in English, versus an older translation like King James or even NIV.
BibleGateway.com has the following to choose from:
- La Bible Du Semeur (BDS)
- Louis Segond (LSG)
- Nouvelle Edition de Genève (NEG1979)
- Segond 21 (SEG21)
Which one fits the requirement best? Are there others which should be considered?
