My favorite Bible translation is the MEV or the Modern English Version Bible. Although, there are so many Bible translations out there. How do you choose the right one? I actually have several different translations. I have a King James Version, New King James Version, an NIV Study Bible and a Bible app on my phone and I use them all.
However, the MEV is the most modern English translation of the Bible printed in the last 30 years. It combines the beaty of the King James Version with modern day language and I love it.
More important, many translations actually have whole scripture verses missing that were originally in the King James Version. When I found out about this, I wanted to find a good translation that still had all the relevant scriptures in it.
(You can click HERE for a list of the Scripture’s not in the NIV and other modern translations.)
As I started to do my research, that’s when I came across the MEV Bible’s.
HISTORY OF THE MEV BIBLE
The MEV Bible is a literal (Word-for-Word) translation using the KJV of the Bible as the base manuscript and with references to God capitalized.
According to BibleGateway.com,
“the intent was to translate historical facts and events without distortion while translating in a way that readers of all backgrounds may understand the message that the original authors were communicating to the original audience. Every effort was made to ensure that no cultural or theological agenda was allowed to distort the translation.”BibleGateway.com
BibleGateway.com also said,
“The goal was to translate Scripture accurately without loss, change, compromise, embellishments, or distortions of the meaning of the original text.”BibleGateway.com
My Two Favorite MEV Bibles
Both are excellent and have different features that really help in studying the Bible.
The SpiritLed Woman Bible is designed for the woman who really wants to know God more deeply and to fulfill the plan God has for her life.
This Bible is easy to read and I especially love the prayers at the beginning of each book and inspirational stories about other Women of faith.
- 40 teaching articles from well-respected Christian leaders
- 65+ profiles of biblical women and other heroines of the faith who have inspired others and made an impact for the kingdom of God
- 400+ daily inspirational thoughts and prayers that affirm you as a woman of God and connect you to the power of the Holy Spirit
- Cross-references, concordance, and eight full-color maps
I highly recommend the SpiritLed Woman Bible. I love the inspirational thoughts and prayers and especially the profiles of the different women.
You can get it in Imitation (Leatherlike) lavender at Amazon for only $50.25 right now.
The MEV Spiritual Warfare Bible is also a great Bible. The way the Bible is setup really helps you more deeply understand God’s Word. The powerful inserts from anointed prayer intercessors are great tools for learning how to pray more effectively.
This Bible is designed to help you use God’s Word and the power of the Holy Spirit to stand strong against Satan and break down demonic strongholds in your life.
- More than 250 spiritual warfare declarations and prayers

Learning how to pray and how to overcome the power of the enemy in my life has been huge and this Bible has really helped me in my walk with Jesus Christ. You can get the Spiritual Warfare Bible on Amazon for $199 at the time I am writing this. It has a soft, leatherlike cover.
There is a lot to learn from this Bible
Whether you currently have a Bible right now or not, I highly encourage you to get one of these Bibles. While the MEV Bible is my favorite Bible translation, the most important thing isto have an accurate translation of Scripture that you can understand. Either one of these Bibles will really help you in your walk with Jesus Christ.
