The English Standard Version (ESV) stands in the classic mainstream of English Bible translations over the past half-millennium.The fountainhead of that stream was William Tyndale's New Testament of 1526; marking its course were the King James Version of 1611 (KJV), the English Revised Version of 1885 (RV), the American Standard Version of 1901 (ASV), and the Revised Standard Version of 19 (RSV).The ESV® text has been reproduced in cooperation with and by permission of Good News Publishers. Use of either trademark requires the permission of Good News Publishers.
In that stream, faithfulness to the text and vigorous pursuit of accuracy were combined with simplicity, beauty, and dignity of expression.
Our goal has been to carry forward this legacy for a new century.
During early pregnancy, an abdominal transducer with a frequency of 5 MHz or a transvaginal transducer with a frequency of 5–10 MHz or higher generally provides very good resolution while allowing adequate penetration.
A lower-frequency transducer may be needed to provide adequate penetration for abdominal imaging later in pregnancy or in an obese patient.
To this end each word and phrase in the ESV has been carefully weighed against the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, to ensure the fullest accuracy and clarity and to avoid under-translating or overlooking any nuance of the original text.
