What Bible translation is used by The Word Among Us?

Last Updated: Mar 19, 2013 11:18AM EDT

What version of the Bible does The Word Among Us Plus the Mass Readings Supplement use?

All chapter and verse citations are from the New American Bible (NAB). The texts quoted are also from the NAB, but more than one edition of the NAB is currently in circulation. That tends to create some confusion. The Word Among Us uses the NAB’s 1970 Old Testament translation, including the Psalms, and the 1986 New Testament translation. This is the same text as used in the Mass lectionary in the United States, but there are some exceptions.
