Not only has the ESV been our personal Bible go-to for over a decade, but it's also where we landed in terms of permissions for Abidible. Crossway is the publisher for the ESV Bible version, and gave us their blessing saying:

We understand many of you may have fierce loyalty to a particular translation of the Bible. That does not exclude you from being able to participate in our Abidible studies. In fact, we hope you'll still stick around.
(Need some more help understanding what Bible "translations" even are? Check out this short article.)
That said, there will be some modifications you'll need to make and a few things you'll need to be aware of before you proceed.
There are only a few places where you'll need to modify your study to accommodate the version you plan on using. These modifications will be necessary in order for you to complete the exercise.

That's it! That's how easy the modifications will be for you if you'd like to continue using your Bible version. We want to honor your preference the best that we can! If you're uncertain about making these changes and not having lettered products that match the version you're using, maybe pray about trying a new version and see if the Lord opens your heart to that idea.
Regardless of what you choose, you are a welcome part of our Abidible community! There are SO many fantastic translations out there and we know that some of you love the versions you use. So stick with it, make a few simple modifications, and jump right in with us.
