This Bible is very close in comparison to the ESV. Like the ESV, the RSV-2CE, stays away from all the inclusive language nonsense. Big improvement over the original RSV/RSV-CE. For example they corrected passages such as Isaiah 7:14. Isaiah 7:14 (RSV-2CE) Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanu-el." I would highly recommend this Bible. This is a very good translation.
