    Glad to see “wounding” removed.

  • 2. Joe  |  March 5, 2009 at 4:51 pm

    Yes, it seems to have stood alone in the rendering of wounding.

    Funny enough the HCSB renders Isa 53:5 “But He was pierced because of our transgressions, crushed because of our iniquities; punishment for our peace was on Him, and we are healed by His wounds.”

    Why did the revision change from “disobeying” to “destroy” in 1 Peter 2:8? There does not seem to be any foundation for that change. No major translation reads that way. The word means “disobedient.”

    I am really not sure what their translation philosophy is anymore.

    Joe,
    I take it by that you are disappointed with the revision?

    I’d like to see the Study Bible enlighten us as to why certain translation choices were made. There are only a couple of places I don’t understand. I still have a bunch more letters to go through 😉

    Hey Joe,
    I was looking for something in 1 Pet 1 on the revision. For some reason I can’t find that post listed anymore. Either I am crazy or you pulled the post. 🙂

    I was looking because I just read through 1 Pet 1 and was really blessed with what they did in the 1st edition. I know they changed “be self-disciplined” to “be serious” I was thinking perhaps that was because of some lexicons saying that the word means, “calm and collected of spirit.” Though I’m not saying anything in favor of, “be serious.” However, I was really blessed with the rest of the way they translated that chapter and was hoping they didn’t change much else in the chapter.

    By the way, thanks for all you are doing with these posts. They are a huge blessing. I saw in one place you mentioned that you wonder if the electronic version is final. I highly doubt it. It seems like there are some obvious things they may have to change. Like that one typo. I’m hoping some of the quirks are caught.

    All things being said, I still like the translation.

  • 8. Dan  |  May 13, 2009 at 2:20 am

    ok. never mind on not finding 1 peter 1.. I found it.

    However, still feel free to respond to my other thoughts.

    thanks Joe

    Dan, I was just about to call you crazy 😉

    I hope to get the rest of these up soon, just been too busy on the work schedule lately.

    I am not sure about how “final” the electronic version is right now, but as you say there sure are a couple places that really need double checked their side.

    HCSB is my main translation, even with some of what I have seen (some of which I don’t really like too much), I can’t think of a better translation at the moment…
