The Revised English Bible, the latest revision of the New English Bible of 1970, is an idiomatic translation by a broad ecclesiastical cross-section of English biblical scholars. The latest version moderates some of the extreme "Britishisms" of the original version. The REB treats the apocryphal books as a separate class of books rather than inserting them among the OT books as in Roman Catholic versions. Copyright 1989.

This translation in my mind is not only accurate but has a poet nature too it that is only surpassed by the King James Version. This translation is not as gender inclusive as I would like but it is an admirable attempt to correct gender bias not found in the original texts. Accordances implementation of the REB has never had the footnotes and is the only real defect in their implementation of the REB in my mind (and a rather small one at that). This oft ignored translation deserves a spot in every Bible lovers library.

The first review was helpful for me. I purchased the REB because several of the 1 Corinthians commentaries (circa 1980) I was reading at the time refer to the NEB. I have also found that more recent authors will occasionally refer to the NEB because of a novel take on a passage. I assumed the REB (which is all that accordance offers) would suffice for checking references but I have been disappointed. Many passages have been changed from the NEB as quoted in my books and no one ever refers to the REB. The translation is fine but I am more interested in the un-revised version. I would love to see accordance release a module that lets the user see both, or footnotes the changes or something. I was interested in the early, potentially flawed version for research purposes and the REB doesn't solve the problem.
