    I have not spent too much time with the ISV to be honest. I just downloaded the e-sword module so now I have no excuse. I have liked what I see so far.

    OK, the ISV is just too Yoda’ish for me in some places – for example – 1Ti 3:1 “This is a trustworthy saying: The one who would an elder be, a noble task desires he.”

    I don’t know how much of this there is but we shall see over time.

    Wow. That translation of 1 Ti 3:1 is just awful. It sounds like there should be a song and dance number to accompany it.
