The New International Version (NIV)

The New Century Version (NCV)

The Contemporary English Version (CEV)

These fifty-one words are given in alphabetical order in two sections. The section with the asterisk [*] before each word (*adoption -- *vail) is a section which contains the 29 words of the greatest doctrinal usage. The remaining 22 words (abide -- walk) are samples of other words of general interest and usage. All of the above words (to the best of our sampling process) are words that are NOT found in the CEV.
