I also read the KJV on top of the OSB. There is another Orthodox Bible version called the Classic Orthodox Bible,which has the OT from Brenton's LXX and the NT from the KJV with slight tweaks here and there. But I heard that the book is too big and the print is too small to read. Other than that, I think the COB is a pretty good bible version for Orthodox Christians. Bible versions with the Majority Text in the NT like the KJV, NKJV, OSB, EOB, and COB are better bible versions for the Orthodox Christian reader.

I use an Aramaic NT (Peshitta) and the Septuagint with Apocrypha.

Oxford RSV with "Apocrypha," Greek Orthodox New Testament, Eastern Orthodox pocket edition Gospels and The Apostolic Polyglot Bible :)

To make it plain and simple, the Orthodox Church officially uses the Septuagint/LXX for the OT, though they respect the use of the Hebrew OT. For the NT, the Church uses the Byzantine-type text.

Another good complete translation would be the WEB. It has all of the Canon of the OT that the Orthodox Church uses and the NT is based off the Byzantine-type text.I prefer the British Edition of the WEB because it still uses "Lord" instead of "Yahweh".
