Bible Translations


Four clergyman were discussing the various translations of the Bible one day. One liked the King James Version because of its beautifully poetic use of English. Another liked the Revised Standard Version best because it was more literal and came nearer to the original Hebrew and Greek.

The third preferred the New International Version because it used the most up-to-date vocabulary.

The fourth minister was silent. When asked his opinion, he finally replied, "I like my mother's translation the best."

The other three expressed surprise. They did not know that his mother had translated the Bible.

"Oh, but she did," he assured them. "She translated it into life, every day of her life, and it was the most convincing translation I ever saw."
