About the Translation
Translated by a multi-denominational committee, and based on the original Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic, the New Revised Standard Version is widely used by English-speaking congregations throughout the world.

About the Apocrypha
The Apocrypha is a collection of books found in the Septuagint—the Greek version of the Jewish Bible. Though not incorporated into the final, canonical version of the Hebrew scriptures, it was included in important Bible translations such as the Latin Vulgate and the original King James Version of 1611. For centuries the books of the Apocrypha have had a significant influence on Christian art, literature, and theology.
