Revised Standard Version

The Revised Standard Version or RSV of the Bible was initially published in 1952 (New Testament 1946) as a revision of the American Standard Version, which itself was a revision of the King James Version. The RSV was translated primarily by mainline scholars and was the first modern era English translation to make use of 20th century archaeological discoveries. The copyright of the RSV is owned by the National Council of Churches.
