Literary attributes

Translation

The translation aims to be central between a literal translation and an idiomatic translation, a philosophy the ISV translation team call "literal-idiomatic" (p. xliii of the ISV Introduction).

Version Numbers

The Holy Bible: International Standard Version (ISV) is being produced with identifying version numbers and build sequence identifiers so as to provide tracking of improvements and additions to the text. Current as of 9 May 2008, the ISV's current version and build was v1.4.6.

Dead Sea Scrolls Project

In late 2007, the ISV Foundation of Paramount, California, announced commencement of a collaborative effort with Dr. Peter Flint, Canada Research Chair in Dead Sea Scrolls Studies of Trinity Western University (Langley, BC Canada) to produce a comprehensive set of footnotes for the International Standard Version documenting the variants between the biblical manuscripts of the Dead Sea Scrolls and that of the Massoretic Text of the Hebrew Scriptures. In early May 2008, the ISV Foundation reached a preliminary agreement by which scholars associated with Dr. Flint and his colleague Dr. Eugene Ulrich (Notre Dame University) would produce footnotes for the ISV concerning approximately 90 variants between the DSS and the MT contained in the Psalms and Proverbs. The ISV Bible intends to release an edition of the Psalms and Proverbs containing the variants in mid-2008.
