Sometimes the Bible translation The Message gets it right when most or all others don’t in the opinion of a couple of bloggers. Here are two examples:
I do not want to be a biblioidolater so I encourage you to make up your own mind. I am not against paraphrasing in translation (as the KJV does as well, and in fact only a literal word for word translation would not) but I am just not for the loose paraphrasing of the Message.
I could be wrong – maybe, just maybe – but I am not going to claim absolute authority on this issue.
