ECPA Bible Publishers' Statement
As Bible publishers, we are each responsible to market and sell our respective translations. In doing so, we expect to promote the strengths and advantages of our own translation(s), and sometimes it is helpful to compare our translation(s) with others. But we recognize that there are certain parameters outside of which it is inappropriate for us to operate. Accordingly, we, the undersigned, voluntarily accept the following statement of Bible marketing ethics:

In all aspects of our Bible advertising and marketing, we will strive to be truthful in the statements we make and respectful in how we make them. Statistics or other numerical data in Bible advertising will show attribution to the source. When making distinctions about our respective Bible translations and products, we will not make derogatory statements about any particular philosophy of Bible translation, impugn the motives of Bible translation teams, or maliciously discredit any specific Bible translation, scholar, or publisher. Instead, in all our discussions about differences, we will speak the truth in love, try to do what is honorable before the Lord, and treat each other as we would want to be treated.
