After years of scholarly labor and review, the first major update to the New American Bible (NAB) text in 20 years is approved for publication. The New American Bible Revised Edition (NABRE)accomplishes three major goals in Biblical scholarship: First, a more accurate translation aided by modern archeological and historical discoveries; second, a more consistent rendering of the Greek and Hebrew to more closely express the meaning of the original text; and third, revisions in the NABRE reflect changes in modern English usage of particular words (ex. "burnt offering" substituted for "holocaust").
Note: The Catholic Bible readings used in the current missals & lectionaries & LOTH use an older version of the NAB translation that has now been updated in all the new NAB Bibles currently being printed. For this reason, this NAB Bible will be close (but not exactly word-for-word) to the readings you will hear at Mass. It is not possible to purchase an older NAB translation to exactly match the Mass readings, because they are no longer in print.
