Spargo pastor test your Bible knowledge answer True or false answers at Bottom god is not pleased with the modern speech translations of the Bible Uke the living Bible paraphrased and Good news for modern Man True although translation of the Bible into modern speech Are needful we must recognize that some of these Are not translations but commentaries not versions but perversions the two Basic languages of the Bible Are hebrew old testament and greek new testament. Though some loss of shades of meaning can be expected with any translation we should desire that with the closest to the original text. But How can one Tell which is More accurate by Reading the translators note at the beginning and by noticing if the translation is by one Man or a committee. Since the original text is verbally inspired every word-2 Tim. 3 16-17an objective translation is demanded by god. For it is a serious matter to Odd to or subtract from god s word Rev. 22 18 19. Although some Quot one Man Quot translations Are fairly Good his preconceived beliefs often slip into the work. A Good example of this is in Good news for modern Mon romans 1.17 is through Faith most other translations do not have the word Quot alone because it was added by the translator not the holy spirit there is a vast difference Between Quot Faith Quot and Quot Faith alone Quot. Obviously the translator was commenting not translating. The so called Quot living Bible is being sold cheaply and the word Quot por phase Quot should cause us to be suspicious though accuracy is found in some places inaccuracy is found in others which have to do with matters of Faith. For instance in i Peter 1 21. This one Man translation has Peter teaching salvation coming before baptism while every other translation teaches Quot baptism doth also now save us. Gutter language is found in i Sam. 20 30 and in 2 Sam. 112 5, vulgarity in wording is obvious.
