For a real paper version that easy enough to carry around, this ESV Bible is translated Word-for-Word rather than Word-for-Thought.
In Japanese, there is a phrase, "Are you energetic?" Which is asked upon greeting someone. Americans would say, "How are you?" in this situation. It can be translated Word-for-Word, "Are you energetic?" or Word-for-Thought, "How are you?" The ESV is more Word-for-Word, while the NIV is a balance of both.
