Conan on the NIV

Bible translation revisions don't usually get this kind of cultural attention.

News of planned revisions to the NIV made the monologue in last night's Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien:

This is a weird story: The top-selling Bible in North America is being revised for the first time in 25 years to reflect changes in English usage. The language is changing so they're revising the Bible. For instance, the Book of Genesis now includes the line, "On the Seventh Day the Lord chillaxed."

It's 6:11 into the video.
