Seneca's Epistles Volume I Source: Translated by Richard M. The Loeb Classical Library.
Revised and Containing the Old Testament and the New Testament. Revised in and in The New International Version NIV was a produced by a committee of scholars associated with various evangelical churches in America, who began work on the version in It was not a revision of any previously existing version, but an entirely new translation in idiomatic twentieth-century English.
He brought them to the man. This harmonistic rendering was intended to counter the liberal assertion that the story beginning at 2: The narrative states that a decree issued by Xerxes allowed the Jews to massacre the whole population of any province in which their lives were threatened.
But this was not an option for the NIV translators, who as theological conservatives were bound to affirm that Matthew correctly interpreted the word. Obey me, and I will be your God and you will be my people.
Walk in all the ways I command you, that it may go well with you. Hence the RSV reads: But this command I gave them, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people; and walk in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you.
However, some liberal scholars, who claim that Jeremiah was written before the Pentateuch was compiled, have argued that here the prophet really is denying that the laws concerning sacrifice were given by God.
This is obviously impossible, and in fact archaeological excavations have revealed that the walled city was about three miles across, and so liberal scholars have considered it to be a gross exaggeration. It may refer to the circumference of greater Nineveh, taking in the suburbs this interpretation is supported by Genesis The apparent contradiction between Acts 9: This way of understanding the two statements is probably correct.
This note is well-nigh indefensible, and it seems to be an attempt to harmonize this passage with modern habits of dress. One British scholar, N.
I must register one strong protest against one particular translation. When the New International Version was published inI was one of those who hailed it with delight. Again and again, with the Greek text in front of me and the NIV beside it, I discovered that the translators had had another principle, considerably higher than the stated one: This is a large claim, and I have made it good, line by line, in relation to Romans in my big commentary, which prints the NIV and the NRSV and then comments on the Greek in relation to both of them.
And, yes, the NIV has now been replaced with newer adaptations in which some at least of the worst features have, I think, been at least modified. But there are many who, having made the switch to the NIV, are now stuck with reading Romans 3: This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe….
All words must be contextually nuanced. As if it were a prerogative of translators to present new interpretations in such a way that traditional interpretations are absolutely excluded. It may be that others of the committee did not have any such manipulation of the reader in mind.
It is not that we expect all scholars and translators to agree with every word of the Nicene Creed.

The moderate use of the so-called dynamic equivalence method of translation in the version involved a trade-off in which accuracy was sometimes sacrificed for the sake of readability. For example, in a literal rendering of Deuteronomy The meaning here is that the priests of the tribe of Levi enforced the word of God without partiality, without showing special favor to relatives.
However, some overly paraphrastic renderings do create problems for preachers and teachers who try to use the NIV while focusing on verbal details of the text. And aside from such inconveniences to theological exposition, the idiomatic style seemed to make the sacred text less impressive and less memorable than most conservatives would prefer.
This is a serious problem for the NIV that is not always acknowledged.
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood. He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.
The one who fears is not made perfect in love. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.John Locke (—) John Locke was among the most famous philosophers and political theorists of the 17 th century.
