I have several translations & versions. Those which I use regularly are:
NASB Study Bible
Aramaic Pe#ta (George Lamsa translation)
For King James Version I prefer using the Webster Bible.
Jewish Bible I have is Complete Jewish Bible, I also have the Jewish New Testament Commentary. The Commentary is handicapped by its degree of bias,
however it is informative and offers additional pertinent perspective.
Greek Septuagint and Hebrew Masoretic Texts for Old Testament translations are trustworthy sources. I would not recommend Latin Vulgate translations
and Orthodox Bibles, as although they can be somewhat helpful to those who have read through the Bible in Its entirety, they are also compromised in
many respects for those whom may be the novice or part-time/as-needed reader.
Holman's Christian Standard Bible is decent, but also limited in perspective.
New International Version, meh, it'll do if you don't have anything else, but it can be misleading at times.
Edit to add:
For crying out loud, the Name of a Bible translation was censored by ATS ?? Gimme a break
The "nasty" word that has been edited out above is the ARAMAIC P-E-S-H-I-T-T-A
