NASB

31 July 1970. The New American Standard Bible (NASB) is finally released to the public 7 years after the New Testament was published, and 69 years after its precursor, the American Standard Version (ASV) was put on the market. According to its producer, the California-based Lockman Foundation, over 58 scholars from various denominations -- Assembly of God, Baptist, Church of Christ, Congregational, Disciples of Christ, Evangelical Free, Independent Mennonite, Methodist, Nazarene, Presbyterian, and others -- worked intensively for around 10 years to produce the NASB. The Foundation also reported that 20 translators spent three years on the 1995 edition.
