Abstract The New International Reader’s Version (NIrV) of 2005, and the New International Version, as revised in 2011 (NIV 2011), derive from the same stable. NIV 2011 is a “standard” English version, while NIrV is in simplified English, having in mind children and those whose competence in English and/or whose knowledge of the Bible is limited. This study demonstrates the very different approaches these two versions take to rendering the key word-family for Paul’s doctrine of “justification.” It concludes that Paul’s intentions are conveyed more effectively in NIrV (notwithstanding its limitations) and suggests why NIV 2011 fails at this point.
