A Look Into Translational Work

The English Standard Version (ESV) of the Bible is a great translation of the Bible. The process of translation is a very difficult work. The above video gives a bit of an insight into a discussion that the ESV translators had concerning the translation of the word, “Slave.”  It will give you an insight into the difficulty of translation as well as some of the process involved in doing so.

I appreciate the heart of these men to render each word in the Bible as accurately as possible, so that its true meaning would come across.  I also appreciate their humility and their dependence upon the Lord in the process.  You can learn a lot from this video.
