The Revised Standard Version (RSV)

In 1929, the ICRE (International Council of Religious Education) which is part of the WCC (World Council of Churches) began work on a revision of the ASV. They decided on an entirely new translation, based on the latest scholarly Greek texts. It was much different than Westcott and Hort although it was scholarly and very readable. The New Testament was published in 1946, and the Old Testament in 1952. The RSV had its praises and its criticisms (theologically liberal at some points).
