  1. Many of the KJV words were translated correctly in the 1600s but have changed in meaning over the centuries. One of those words is conversation; it meant manner of life back then but today it means a dialogue between people. The Message is not a translation. Neither is the Living Bible. The New Living Translation retains a lot of the words in the Living Bible but tries to make it truer to the text. I am not a fan. The New World Translation is not a translation since the changes were made by a person who does not know the original languages as he demonstrated in a court of law. Likewise, many of the translations produced by the American Bible Society for poorly educated or English second language people are too loosely translated, like Good News. If every jot and tittle was held to by God, it would seem that we need to be as accurate as possible. NIV is good in some areas but some of its translators used too much paraphrase in the portions they translated thought for thought so I trust it less. NASV was a good translation of its manuscript but I personally believe the "earliest" manuscript left out too much. So I prefer NKJV, Amplified Bible or ESV. ESV restored most eliminated passages to the text with a foot note. Amplified adds words other literal translations have used to translate a Greek or Hebrew word; other words added by translators are in brackets so you may understand it is not part of the Greek or Hebrew text. Others that I refer to are: YLT, LITV, Wuest, ALT3.

    Hi Ken, you are welcome here. I had a cat named Spooky. He did the Halloween cat thing when he saw an ant crawling on the wall! 😃
  5. NIV is dynamic equivalent; ESV is literal translation

    What does this verse mean?

    Psalms 56:8 Jamison, Faucet & Brown God is mindful of his exile and remembers his tears. The custom of bottling the tears of mourners as a memorial, which has existed in some Eastern nations, may explain the figure.

    This is an illustration of meekness, according to Vine. Great story.

    Do We Have Thirty Eight Years?

    Welcome to Worthy, Capn. We have friends who used to live just over the border and we would watch the Abbotsford air show from their porch. So we have explored your area a bit. BC is a beautiful Province.

    Greetings from a Newbie

    Welcome, Hector. We normally just respond to the recent ones.
  15. Yes. Jesus answered people according to the requirements of the law which they were still under. The New Covenant was ratified by the blood of Christ. The Old Covenant was ratified by the blood of calves and goats. Heb 9:17 For a will takes effect only at death, since it is not in force as long as the one who made it is alive. Heb 9:18 Therefore not even the first covenant was inaugurated without blood. Heb 9:19 For when every commandment of the law had been declared by Moses to all the people, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, Heb 9:20 saying, "This is the blood of the covenant that God commanded for you."
