The issue of which Bible translation has been a bit of a challenge.  I’ve memorized so many things in the NIV, but I really like, especially in the Psalms, how the NASB translates.  I’ve already decided to memorize the New Testament in NIV, but I’ve been debating which translation in which to memorize the Psalms.  So far it’s been NIV, but it has been a wrestling match.  I note this as something one should decide on before embarking on the journey.
