Because of the word study programs I have accumulated through the years, the KJV is the one I use the most. For reading purposes I prefer the Holman Christian Standard Bible. I know you asked for a favorite version, but I have two that are equally my favorites.

I've read the Bible through in several different English translations as well as a couple Spanish ones and Greek.

My favorite has changed over time.   A long time ago, I used the Living Bible.

When the NIV came out, I started using that and later picked up a 1901 ASV that became my favorite.   For a time, I used the ASV for OT reading and the NIV for NT reading.

I now do most of my reading in Greek using the Septuagint for my OT reading.

Wow... Very impressive. This would explain for the excellence of your posts. God bless you, brother. I enjoy my Scofield KJV study bible 1967 edition. There are word insert corrections in it, footnotes and side bars, for reference and links to other related scripture passages. Each book has the approximate time line in which it was written, author, and synopsis. A decent concordance, and some historical maps also in the back. One thing that is highly prized, is a Strong's Exhaustive Concordance from the early 20th century. It's huge! And I do have other bible versions for cross-references... NIV, ESV, and a Gideons, etc.  

Shalom, 

David/BeauJangles

P.S. I also started with the Living Bible.

When I discovered The Living Bible, I could not put it down.I couldn’t believe all the great stuff that was in there! After spending so many years in church, Why was all of this “good news” such a surprise?I could not help but smell a rat.Regardless,ever since I read the Bible for myself , I am no longer subject to being fooled— I know what’s in there.

I use Holman  Christian Standard Study Bible right now and I haven't had any issues yet, where they didnt have notes to explain floating verses, other possibilty for translation or found any verses they just plain changed to support doctrin or left out.
