The Revised Standard Version bible is an unreliable translation of the bible. The translation allegedly based on older manuscripts than those used when making the King James bible, this translation fails on virtually every front.
- The bible was translated by scholars some of whom aren't even Christian. Could they be trusted to be unbiased?
- The bible omits some bible verses. This fact can be ascertained when comparing this version against the KJV which still remains the most authoritative bible translation.
When a bible omits verses for any reason whatsoever then that bible translation shouldn't be read for obvious reasons.
For those who use the Revised Standard version or thought about purchasing it, my advice is: don't. There are better bible translations you could buy.
