A Controversial, Thought-Provoking, and Fascinating Quote

“(Bible) Translations, after all, are really a commentary with no notes.”

-Tremper Longman III

You guys can discuss this for a few months until I blog the next time.

  1. By doing it, you come to realize that translation is interpretation. You are figuring out how to say in the target language what you understand the words to mean in the sender language. And that’s an act of interpretation.

  2. I prais God for great translations that are out right now. I am enjoying the New Century Version. You should check it out.

    Hope it doesn’t take a couple of months for you blog again.
    I will miss it. 😦
