I didn't want to derail any of the recent threads discussing specific translations of the Bible, so I'll just ask here - I'm looking to purchase another Bible and am totally confused as to which one to buy. I own the first Orthodox Study Bible and generally like it, although the fact that it doesn't contain the OT is unfortunate. I have the Septuagint (Brenton) but for me this isn't what I would read in bed.
So what I'm looking for is a Bible containing both the NT and OT, in the most accurate English translation possible. I'd rather not scramble for a Koine reference every time I want backing for a particular word or passage. It would be nice if it was "poetic" but that's not a big hangup for me. I prize accuracy over flowery prose.
