HCSB Revisions (Hebrews 8)

5 These serve as a copy and shadow of the heavenly things, as Moses was warned when he was about to complete the tabernacle. For He said, Be careful that you make everything according to the pattern that was shown to you on the mountain. 5 These serve as a copy and shadow of the heavenly things, as Moses was warned when he was about to complete the tabernacle.

    The HCSB has become my translation of choice for general reading and often for study. But I have found some idiosyncracies in translation that come across like fingernails drawn down a chalkboard.

    I would be extremely interested to see how the following passages have been translated in the 2nd edition (the selected quotations are from the 1st edition):
    Isaiah 53:10 (“and He made Him SICK”)
    1 Samuel 10:27 (How can this GUY save us?”) John 11:39 (Lord, he already STINKS. It’s been four days.”) Thank you for your good work.

    Sincerely,
    Brian Moyer

    Hi Brian,

    Here is the HCSB 2nd Edition text for Isaiah 53:10
    “Yet the Lord was pleased to crush Him severely. When You make Him a restitution offering, He will see His seed, He will prolong His days, and by His hand, the Lord’s pleasure will be accomplished.”

    It is interesting that that even the NASB has a footnote:”Lit He made Him sick ”

    Strongs has the following definition:

    to be or become weak, be or become sick, be or become diseased, be or become grieved, be or become sorry

    1. (Qal) to be weak, be sick
    2. (Piel)
    1. to be or become weak, feel weak
    2. to become sick, become ill
    3. (CLBL) to entreat, pray, beg
    3. (Niphal)
    1. to make oneself sick
    2. to be made sick
    3. to be tired
    4. (Pual) to be made weak, become weak
    5. (Hithpael) to make oneself sick
    6. (Hiphil)
    1. to make sore
    2. to make sick
    3. to show signs of sickness, become sick
    4. to grieve
    7. (Hophal)
    1. to be made sick
    2. to be wounded

    Here is the HCSB 2nd edition text for 1 Samuel 10:27:
    “But some wicked men said, “How can this guy save us?” They despised him and did not bring him a gift, but Saul said nothing.”

    Guy may be more informal than man, but I say guy rather than man 7 days a week, when referring to a guy of course.

    John 11:39:
    “Remove the stone,” Jesus said. Martha, the dead man’s sister, told Him, “Lord, he’s already decaying. It’s been four days.”
    These are changes I don’t understand in the HCSB. KJV uses stink, NAS/NKJV uses stench. Why was there a need to change something that not only ties into the original words meaning, but also something that gets right to the point.

    Thanks for the comments Brian, feel free to run with these as you wish.
