2016 Update - Permanent Text Edition

The 2016 Permanent Text Edition was Crossway's attempt to produce a text that is "unchanged forever, in perpetuity". The revision also sought to improve "the precision, accuracy, and understanding" of the ESV.

In September 2016, Crossway announced that the revision would no longer be permanent. The publisher announced that "minimal and infrequent" updates would be made that "reflect the realities of biblical scholarship such as textual discoveries or changes in English over time". More information is here.
