What is the difference between the NIT and the NIV?


Answer by  luminate (38)

Both NLT and NIV are meaning for meaning translations, which means the main idea of the passage is translated rather than translating word from word from the original text. However, the NLT version is more of a thought by thought translation while NIV can sometimes translate literally, making it hard to understand.

The NIV takes the the New King James version of the Bible and places it in everyday terms so the modern person can understand it. There are no thee', thou's and withersoever's in it. According to my research there is no NIT Bible. I went to Bible college and have searched the internet and have not seen any NIT Bible.

The New International Version (NIV) of the Bible is a translation by Christian scholars from the original languages. It is copyright by Biblica and was first published in 1973. The New Iconoclasts' Translation (NIT) of the Bible and Koran is a translation from the original sources by a group of Protestant and Muslim scholars. It was published in 2010.


Answer by  walter80 (409)

There is very little difference between these two versions of The Bible. The New International Translation and The New International Version both provide modern interpretations of the text which aim to be relevant and accessible to contemporary society. The archaic terms are not used and the language is sometimes colloquial and less formal.

The NIV is one of the standard English translations in the world, generally reflecting modern English. The NIT is a version translated by both Protestant and Muslim critics, more for Muslim usage.


Answer by  LibbyJack (34)

The NIT (New Iconoclast's Translation) and NIV (New International Version) are both versions of the bible. The NIT's recent, translated by protestants and muslims. The NIV was compiled by Christians.


Answer by  Crusadir (26)

Nothing. Both versions are derived from the same new age Alexandrean texts which are NOT the same as the standard King James Version.


Answer by  PeterAaron (408)

They are just different wordings for the same bible. New International Translation and New International Version. Same wording, same page structures, same everything really. I believe it just depends on where you are in the world as to its title.


Answer by  Jess35 (445)

NIV stands for New International Version, and NIT stands for New Living Translation. The NIV is written in the New King James version of the Bible, and is written more modernly. The NIT was translated with both Protestant and Muslim influence, while the NIV was translated and compiled by Christians. Both the same text, but different wording.

The NIV is the New International Version of the bible. The New International Translation is an online version that can be downloaded.

There is not too much of a difference between these 2 different traslations. I believe that they are materially the same.
