Say I want to quote from the bible in something I'm writing (think the famous passage in Pulp Fiction). What bible version should I quote from?
I've done some research but only ended up more confused than before - KJV, NIV, NAB... every website seems to have a different opinion.
What I want is to quote passages from the bible in a way that is recognisable to readers familiar with the different editions. Maybe there isn't that much difference between them (except the one which is in Old English - KJV?)
I'm also interested in knowing whether the answer to this question changes if we're talking about the US or the UK. Ideally I'd like to have the most generic version possible.
Edit: The intended audience would be religious people, already familiar with the bible.
