Thanks to Robert Slowly for letting me know he has spent time putting together a comparion of the TNIV, NIV 1984 and NIV 2011, the results of which can be viewed HERE. He would like everyone’s input!
I’ve created these webpages to help people look at the differences between the new NIV2011 and the NIV1984 and TNIV. Below you will find a table with a row for each book of the bible, you can click on the name of the book to see the particular verses in the NIV2011 that differ from the other versions.
I agree with Mark, Robert has done an amazing job and, for TNIV devotees like myself, the results are invaluable and beneficial for all. He has compared every Old and New Testament book and provided a link to the verses where changes have been made and compared the 2011 revision with the TNIV and 1989 revision (the man should be canonized for this miracle!). Indeed! According to his research the stats are as follows:
|All the same||18756||60.3%|
|NIV2011 verse missing||79||0.3%|
Along with Mark, an explanation about what these stats say would be nice. According to the CBT there is a 5% difference between the 1984 revision and the 2011 but these stats don’t necessarily indictae this. Do these statistics say that there is a 7% swing away from the TNIV or….?
