- Checking translations of Holy Scripture

Absent working directly from a Nestle-Aland, you'll want to check certain texts against the Greek. Here's some specific verses I've found helpful for understanding where the biases in a particular translation might be. Translations So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter. Therefore, brothers, stand firm and hold fast to the traditions that you were taught, either by an oral statement or by a letter of ours. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is for you, but you must master it."

—This most difficult verse is capable of a satisfactory interpretation, provided that we refuse to admit into this ancient narrative the ideas of a subsequent age.

Genesis 4:7 Commentaries: "If you do well, will not your countenance be lifted up? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is for you, but you must master it."

Peshitta Aramaic-English New Testament Interlinear Bible - Matthew 6

Peshitta. The Peshitta (Classical Syriac: ܦܫܝܛܬܐ‎ pšîṭtâ) is the standard version of the Bible for churches in the Syriac tradition.


Etymology[edit] The name 'Peshitta' is derived from the Syriac mappaqtâ pšîṭtâ (ܡܦܩܬܐ ܦܫܝܛܬܐ), literally meaning 'simple version'. However, it is also possible to translate pšîṭtâ as 'common' (that is, for all people), or 'straight', as well as the usual translation as 'simple'. Syriac is a dialect, or group of dialects, of Eastern Aramaic, originating around Edessa. Why does Jesus say, “Amen, Amen, I tell you”? In most recent English translations of the Gospels Jesus frequently says, “Truly I say to you” or “I tell you the truth.”

Why does Jesus say, “Amen, Amen, I tell you”?

This conveys a clear meaning, but the problem is that in the Greek text Jesus, in the great majority of cases, does not use the Greek word for “truly” [ἀληθῶς / alethos] or “truth [ἀλήθεια / aletheia].” Even though his conversation is being reported in Greek, Jesus consistently is quoted as using the Hebrew word Amen.

It was used to write the Aramaic language and had displaced the Paleo-Hebrew alphabet, itself a derivative of the Phoenician alphabet, for the writing of Hebrew. The letters all represent consonants, some of which are also used as matres lectionis to indicate long vowels. The Aramaic alphabet is historically significant since virtually all modern Middle Eastern writing systems can be traced back to it as well as numerous non-Chinese writing systems of Central and East Asia.

What about the Majority Text?

Marlowe The "Majority Text" is a statistical construct that does not correspond exactly to any known manuscript. It is arrived at by comparing all known manuscripts with one another and deriving from them the readings that are more numerous than any others. There are two published Greek texts which purport to represent the Majority readings -- Hodges & Farstad 1982 and Pierpont & Robinson 1991.

A folio from Papyrus 46, one of the oldest extant New Testament manuscripts The textual criticism of the New Testament is the analysis of the manuscripts of the New Testament, whose goals include identification of transcription errors, analysis of versions, and attempts to reconstruct the original. The New Testament has been preserved in more than 5,800 Greek manuscripts, 10,000 Latin manuscripts and 9,300 manuscripts in various other ancient languages including Syriac, Slavic, Ethiopic and Armenian.

There are approximately 300,000 textual variants among the manuscripts, most of them being the changes of word order and other comparative trivialities.[1][2] Nonetheless, these manuscripts are copies of copies of copies and maintain a 99.5% accuracy to each other. This fact is unprecedented in light of other ancient texts. Alexandrian text versus Byzantine text[edit] Textual variants in the New Testament - Wikipedia. Textual variants in the New Testament are the subject of the study called textual criticism of the New Testament. Textual variants in manuscripts arise when a copyist makes deliberate or inadvertent alterations to a text that is being reproduced.

Most of the variations are not significant and some common alterations include the deletion, rearrangement, repetition, or replacement of one or more words when the copyist's eye returns to a similar word in the wrong location of the original text. If their eye skips to an earlier word, they may create a repetition (error of dittography). If their eye skips to a later word, they may create an omission resort to performing a slight rearranging of words to retain the overall meaning without compromising the context.

In other instances, the copyist may add text from memory from a similar or parallel text in another location. Genesis 1 Interlinear Bible. Author, Professor, Religious Scholar.
