You could try ESV or KJV. They are more 'old-school' versions that draw from 2 different source material. KJV draws mostly from Masoretic, ESV draws from Masoretic and, supposedly the Septuagint (roughly 200BC translation of the OT). So there will be some differences between the two, but SERIOUSLY, the differences aren't a big deal... You need to read the beginning of the book where the scholars who were involved in the translation process outline their philosophical/grammatical approach to their bible translation. This helps you to understand where they are coming from when you are reading. You could also try audio books if that's more your thing. Sometimes it's helpful just to get through all the content as a foundation before you go deeper.

Also, check out 'thenakedbible' podcast, Michael Heiser is a pretty sweet scholar IMO. If you go back to the early podcasts there might be some cool topical and study guide podcasts.
