What do you mean "readable"? Any version of the bible except the Brick Testament or similarly infantilised equivalent is going to have pages and pages of begats which don't make for interesting reading. People usually say the King James version so try that.

KJV - da good shit. poetic and pretty, closest english translation to original german manuscript from martin luther

NIV - da common shit among young folk. a lot of the poetic older style english is simplified to modern speak

NLT - for really dumb idiots. all big words are simplified to one or two syllables

those are the top 3 i hear about. i am sure there are dozens others. have you tried this niche website called google?

What the hell does this mean?

The King James is full of misreadings — they did their best, but Hebrew philology was only so advanced in the 17th century, and as a result there are some absolute howlers (“The voice of the turtle” is my favorite, also the name of a great John Fahey album). It’s also based on the Textus Receptus, when I think a secular reader is better served by a critical edition with good annotations. Obviously if one’s literary interest is the King James Bible itself, then there’s no substitute.

The NIV is very dire. I actively anti-recommend this one because it’s so ubiquitous. A lot of bad Bibles are uncommon gimmick translations like The Message but the NIV is everywhere, thanks to the global reach of US evangelicalism. The NIV is full of sectarian readings, linguistically unjustified translations, and dishonest attempts to textually minimize embarrassing or infelicitous passages. Here is a thorough, but not comprehensive, list of the problems of the NIV by a Biblical textual critic:

So what are the good English Bibles then? This depends on your purpose in reading, and ultimately comes down to personal discretion. I’m fond of both the Jerusalem Bible and the Revised Standard Version.

Robert Crumb adapted the Book of Genesis word for word.
It's very accessible and worth checking out. Now if only he'd do the rest of it (although there's no way he'd finish it as Genesis took 4 years)

just know what you're looking for when you open a Bible. I like the King James Bible, it's all fuckin fire and brimstone and shit. Idk what you mean by correct in it's translation. For the first few centuries of Christianity everybody was convinced Jesus would come back any day now so nobody bothered to write things down. Anything you find is gonna be translated from Aramaic to Greek at the very least, Western Bibles then go from Greek to Latin to whatever language you get the final translation to. You want the old testament stuff, you should look into translations of the Torah. KJB does fine for me.

it is like the game "telephone", where the first person's message is garbled by the time it goes down the line to the last person. and then u throw in people in the game who intentionally garble the message for whatever reason

would u stake ur soul on that message, hell no lol
