1. New World Translation (too many theologically motivated mistranslations)
2. Concordant Literal New Testament (too mechanical, virtually unreadable)
3. Contemporary English Version (doesn’t quite sound Biblish)
4. New Century Version (same as above)
5. The Message (what the Bible would sound like if God were Eugene Peterson)
6. Young’s Literal Translation (too wooden)
7. Any Sacred Name Version (too annoying)
8. Good News Bible (HT: Andrew Bourne)
9. God’s Word Translation (pretentious title)
10. The Amplified Bible (Every word has a lexicon attached)
