Introduction to the ESV Bible

The ESV BibleĀ is an essentially literal translation of the Bible in contemporary English, emphasizing “word-for-word” accuracy, literary excellence, and depth of meaning.

Suited for personal reading, public worship, in-depth study, and Scripture memorization, the ESV is available in more than 200 print editions on Crossway.org and free online through ESVBible.org.

The ESV Bible was created by a team of more than 100 leading evangelical scholars and pastors. Since its publication in 2001, the ESV has gained wide acceptance and is used and trusted by church leaders, numerous denominations, and millions of individuals around the world.

Crossway is a not-for-profit publishing ministry. All receipts from the publication of the ESV Bible are used directly to further the ministry and do notĀ inure to the benefit of any individual.
