New American Bible Translation

  • The New American Bible, published in 1970, was the 1st official English-language Catholic Bible to be translated from the original Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic. This fresh translation was born out of the need for a new version of Scripture that would be suitable for liturgical proclamation, private reading and study.

  • This is the official translation of the US Conference of Bishops.

  • The challenge for the translators was to produce a version of the Bible with language dignified enough for formal liturgical use but contemporary enough to be readily understandable to the laity.

  • Used throughout the US and other English speaking countries, it is highly recognized because of its use in the liturgy.

  • In 1978, a comprehensive revision was made to the NAB New Testament in order to incorporate recent biblical scholarship, as well as to reflect the changing nature of the English language.

  • Also in 1978, the editors aspired to produce a version more accurate & faithful to the Greek as closely as possible.

  • In 1992, the ICEL committee approved the Revised Psalms and they were introduced into Catholic Press editions.

  • The text of the NAB is the official text of the Roman Catholic Lectionary used throughout the US. The fully revised Old Testament was formally approved by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in 2010. The 1986-edition of the New Testament and the newly-revised Old Testament were released together on March 9, 2011. This edition includes the Psalms that were again revised between 2009 and 2010 to conform with the guidelines of Liturgiam Authenticam.
