Kevin A. Wilson over at Blue Cord (this is clickable) wrote a post about the ESV compared to the NIV and NRSV and how different they are.
Peter Kirk respond saying that if the ESV was compared to the NIV and say the NLT and more dynamic translations, you would find that the ESV and NIV were a whole lot closer than it initially appeared.
I thought I would test that…and here are the results graphed (I really apologize for how very white this picture is against the black…):
I’m providing a few more translations for a better context…but its pretty clear in both of them that the NIV/TNIV are roughly midway between the ESV and the NLT.
From this graph, I’d have to say that Kevin and Peter were each about half right, respectively…
