"The ESV is an 'essentially literal' translation that seeks as far as possible to capture the precise wording of the original text and the personal style of each Bible writer. As such, its emphasis is on "word-for-word" correspondance . . ."
"The New American Standard Bible translation team adhered to the literal philosophy of translation. This is the most exacting and demanding method of translation, and requires a word-for-word translation that is accurate and precise, yet easily readable."
About 84% of the King James Version matches Tyndale and was based on it which was a word-for-word translation. The New King James followed the same philosophy in seeking to update the language of the King James.
