The Legacy Standard Bible was completed by a team of scholars from The Master’s Seminary and University. The LSB is a direct update of the NASB 1995 edition and fundamentally endeavors to uphold and honor it. The translators went back to the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek of every verse in order to double check its accuracy. Any changes made revolved around translating words as consistently as possible in English style and within their various nuances considering context and grammatical structure. Sometimes these changes will incorporate what was found in the earlier NASB 1977 edition. However, if no update was needed, then the text was left as originally translated by the NASB 1995. Thus, as opposed to a brand new translation, the LSB is truly designed to be a legacy edition. It is a version that honors and upholds the NASB tradition, and endeavors to implement its translation philosophy.
