Is a Literal Translation Always Better?

Legacy Standard Bible; https://lsbible.org/
The Legacy Standard Bible has an app for both Apple and Android with as much of the Bible as they’ve completed available to read if you’d like to check that out go the store and type in “Legacy Bible app” and it should pop up.
The Literal Version: https://www.lsvbible.com/
My personal favorite translations:
The NIV and NASB are also good.
The NLT is good for people who don’t read well.
Won’t know about the LSB till it’s all out and I have chance to check it out.
What about the KJV?
If you had the perfect translation and you have a poor reader who can’t read it and so gives up. What good is it then?
What place should readability have in a translation?
Can you over do it on one translation?
As you read it in a different, because the word order is different, and different words are used, you’re going to see things that you missed before.
