What version of the Bible do you use every day?  What version would you recommend if asked to make a recommendation?

There are 7000 know languages of those 7000 the Bible has been translated into 2900 as of 2018.   
There are 531 known versions of the Bible published.  Of those 531 as of 2018, the NIV is the most sold and the KJV is still in the top five depending on where you are at.  The survey in 2018 shows the KJV as number three overall.   An interesting side note was the Evangelicals tend to use the KJV more than other major Christian denominations.

KJV is considered still to be the most eloquent translation. King James had wanted readability and eloquence over truth and accuracy. 

Now to answer my own questions, I used the ESV the most daily.  It was what the seminary I attended used in the main and I am comfortable with it.    If I was buying or gifting someone a Bible it most likely would be giving them the NIV.   The difference if they are a student entering into a religious study course it would be the Oxford Bible with notes, commentaries, and the Apocrypha.  This is by far the best Bible for academic use as it is denomination neutral in the notes.
