I am a BIG fan of the NIV 1984 version. I am. It's what I grew up reading. From fourth grade through senior year--this translation was my primary translation. It was the translation I memorized verses and passages. Before it was available as a whole Bible, however, it released as a New Testament. This is the New Testament forerunner. (There is a whole Bible NIV that came out in 1978 as well. The 1984 revision "stuck" until 2011. Let's not talk about 2011. Some of us are still bitter.)
I got it for around two dollars at my local charity shop. It looked well loved. The condition isn't the absolute best. But I thought for two dollars, it would hold up for at least one read through. (It did. It required extra hand support when reading Acts (the center point) but it held up.)
It is single column. It is black letter. It is definitely out of print. That being said, I think it can be found if you are patient and visit lots of thrift stores and/or search for it online. As far as I know, this 1973 text of the New International Version is not available online.
Romans 3:23-26 (1973)
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forebearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished--he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies the man who has faith in Jesus.
Romans 3:23-26 (2011)
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
