Bible version quiz

It's been quite some time since I've posted any quiz, survey, or poll on this blog. Let's see how you do on this quiz. The winner will receive a virtual crown of glory with a virtual sign on the front that says "I won the BBB quiz."

1. Which two Bible versions specifically followed the CSG (Colorado Springs Guidelines)?

2. List every version you can think of that has the word "Standard" in its title? (a correct answer on this one will be considered to be within one point plus or minus of the "Standard" list that I have)

3. Which version today is marketed as a thought-for-thought translation?

There, three questions is enough. There are three points in many of your (y'all's) sermons. Three is a good number. Feel free to email your answers to:

or answer within the Comments to this post.

ANSWERS (posted June 5):

3. NLT (also NLT2 is OK)

Thanks to each of you who submitted answers. You all did well.

1) TNIV, HCSB, ESV (I believe there's three, not two, though the TNIV isn't an entirely new translation).

2) I suppose one could be pedantic and point out that there are two editions of the NASB ('77 and '95), but I think he's got them all above.

3) NLT above has it.

The TNIV does not meet the required guidelines of the question "specifically followed the CSG (Colorado Springs Guidelines)?"
Whether you agree or disagree with them (CSG), there is no way you can claim that the TNIV followed them.
God bless

There were also two different editions of the RSV ('52 & '71). Sometimes you see the latter referred to as the RSV II to distinguish it from the former. If my memory is correct, the primary differences between the two editions are in the NT, especially the placement of disputed passages back into the main text instead of the footnotes.
