Best ever exists, some are more accurate, some more honest to the most ancient texts. I am looking for what is the most truthful to the ancient Hebrew, preferably the Dead Sea Scrolls, as they are the most ancient period. I am leaning towards the NRSV I hear it used the DSS but I want more footnotes. I want the Catholic one because it has more books than the non Catholic.
I am about to undertake a year long journey of dedicated bible study and refuse to use the KJV or NIV and I want to know what is the best English translation ever. I am going to buy it as soon as I figure it out and would appreciate any input at all. Also, is there any version that uses the Masoretic texts, the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Greek?

I will not argue the point but my choice is always with what the majority texts will use in translation.
