(src)="3"> If your religion affects the whole of your life , then [ the Bible’s ] language must be that of everyday life . ”

(src)="4"> So wrote scholar Alan Duthie in his book Bible Translations : And How to Choose Between Them .
(trg)="5"> Duthie li ta slivro ti xi sbie : Bible Translations and How to Choose Between Them .

(src)="5"> Lovers of God’s Word wholeheartedly agree .
(trg)="6"> Mi jkʼanojtik li Skʼop Diose jaʼ jech ta jnoptik kʼuchaʼal laj yal li maestro Alane .

(src)="7"> The Bible is anything but a book of outmoded religious platitudes .
(src)="8"> It is “ alive and exerts power , ” offering real solutions to the problems of everyday life .
(trg)="8"> Li Vivliae maʼuk noʼox jlik voʼneal livro , yuʼun « kuxul [ . . . ] , oy sjuʼel » , tskoltautik sventa stsal kuʼuntik li vokoliletik ta jnuptantik ta jkuxlejaltike .

(src)="10"> After all , the so - called New Testament was written , not in the classical Greek used by philosophers like Plato , but in the common , everyday Greek called Koine .

(src)="13"> The result has for the most part been quite beneficial .

(src)="14"> The Scriptures have been made more accessible to the public at large .
(trg)="14"> Li avie mu xa toj vokoluk sventa sta jlikuk Svivliaik li krixchanoetike .

(src)="15"> Even so , many of these new versions fall woefully short when it comes to unbiased accuracy and consistency .
(trg)="15"> Akʼo mi jech , li achʼ Vivliaetike muʼyuk lek tukʼ jelubtasbil xchiʼuk vokol ta aʼibel smelolal .

(src)="16"> For example , some tend to obscure the Bible’s clear teachings on the condition of the dead , the identity of the human soul , and the name of the true God .
(trg)="16"> Jech kʼuchaʼal liʼe , oy jlom ti muʼyuk jamal chal ti bu oy li animaetike xchiʼuk ti kʼusi sbi li melel Diose .

(src)="22"> While the New World Translation of the Christian Greek Scriptures may be new to American Sign Language - speaking people , it has actually been around since 1950 .
(trg)="22"> Pe li Vivlia taje laj yichʼ lokʼesel ta inglés ta 1950 , jaʼ la slokʼes li Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society , ti jaʼ jun organisasion internasional ti oy xa ta sjabilal slokʼesoj epal Vivliaetik ta jeltos kʼopetike .

(src)="23"> At that time it was released in the English language by the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society — an international Bible Society with a long history of Bible publishing .

(src)="24"> The title of this new translation — a bold departure from the traditional division of the Bible into “ old ” and “ new ” testaments — was just one of many ways in which it was to prove unique .
(trg)="24"> Yuʼun li kʼusi tskʼanike jaʼ ti jaʼuk te xichʼ akʼel ta ojtikinel sbi li kuxul xchiʼuk melel Diose » .

(src)="25"> The Watchtower of September 15 , 1950 , said : “ The men who compose the translation committee have indicated their desire . . . to remain anonymous , and specifically do not want their names to be published while they are in life or after death .
(trg)="25"> Li ta 1961 laj yichʼ lokʼesel sliklej li Traducción del Nuevo Mundo de las Santas Escrituras , ta jlik noʼox laj yichʼ pasel .

(trg)="28"> Jech oxal , kʼalal la jchaʼkʼelkutik li Chʼul Tsʼibetike , solel lek la jkʼelkutik li kʼusi chale yuʼun kichʼojkutik tajek ta mukʼ .

(trg)="29"> Voʼon oy ta jba chkaʼikutik ti tukʼuk xichʼ jelubtasel li aʼyej yichʼoj tale .

(src)="31"> Good intentions notwithstanding , were the committee members qualified to take on this task ?
(trg)="32"> ¿ Mi lek van tajek chanunajemik li buchʼutik la sjelubtasik li Vivlia taje ?

(src)="32"> Some disgruntled scholars argued that without a disclosure of the translators ’ names and academic credentials , the work should be summarily dismissed as the work of amateurs .

(src)="42"> A Translation That Sanctifies God’s Name
(trg)="42"> Li Jesuse xi la xchanubtas ta spasel orasion li yajchankʼoptake : « Jtotik ta vinajel , akʼo yichʼ chʼultajesel li abie » .

(src)="43"> At Matthew 6 : 9 , Jesus taught his disciples to pray : “ Our Father in the heavens , let your name be sanctified . ”
(trg)="43"> Akʼo mi jech , jutuk mu skotoluk li Vivliaetike muʼyuk yichʼoj tal li sbi Diose , sjelojik ta « Kajval » , « Dios » o « Mukʼul Dios » .

(src)="44"> Yet , in most translations , God is a nameless entity , identified only by the title “ God ” or “ Lord . ”
(src)="45"> This was not the case originally , however .
(trg)="44"> Pe li ta voʼneal tsʼibetike yichʼoj tal li sbi Diose , ti jaʼ Jeovae , li ta Tsʼibetik ta Evreo Kʼope yichʼoj tal jutuk mu 7,000 ta velta ( Éxodo 3 : 14 , Ch , kʼelo li tsʼib ta yok vune ) .

(src)="46"> God was plainly identified nearly 7,000 times in the original Hebrew Scriptures by the personal name “ Jehovah . ”
(trg)="45"> Te van jayibuk jabil ta tsʼakal kʼalal tsuts stsʼibael li Chʼul Tsʼibetik ti yakʼoj ta naʼel Diose , li judaetike laj yiktaik stunesel li sbi Dios ta skoj ti chiʼik ta stunesele xchiʼuk ti xchʼunojik ta sventa li labtael o metsʼtaele .

(src)="47"> In later years superstitious fears caused the Jewish people to cease using the divine name .
(trg)="46"> Kʼalal chamik li yajtakboltak Jesuse , li stsobobbail yajtsʼaklomtak Kristoe lik xchʼunik ti mu stakʼ tunesel li sbi Dios jech kʼuchaʼal tsnopik yantike .

(src)="48"> Following the death of Jesus ’ apostles , this superstitious viewpoint infected the Christian congregation .
(src)="49"> ( Compare Acts 20 : 29 , 30 ; 1 Timothy 4 : 1 . )
(trg)="47"> Li buchʼutik la spasik kopiar li jlom Tsʼibetike lik stupʼik li biil Jeovae , jaʼ xa la stunesik li jpʼel kʼop Kýrios ti jaʼ skʼan xal « Kajval » xchiʼuk li jpʼel kʼop Theós , ti jaʼ skʼan xal « Dios » .

(src)="50"> Copyists of the Greek portions of Scripture began replacing God’s personal name , Jehovah , with the Greek words Kyʹri·os and The·osʹ , which mean respectively “ Lord ” and “ God . ”
(trg)="48"> Koliyal ti laj yichʼ pasel li Chʼul Tsʼibetik ta Mateo kʼalal ta Apokalipsis [ e ] , ta smiyonal noʼox krixchanoetik xuʼ xchanik xchiʼuk xuʼ skʼel ta skʼop stukik ti te tsʼibabil tal li sbi Diose

(src)="51"> Happily , the New World Translation has taken the bold step of restoring the name Jehovah to the Christian Greek Scriptures ( “ New Testament ” ) , that name appearing there 237 times .
(trg)="49"> Li biil Jeovae te chvinaj 237 ta velta li ta Tsʼibetik ta Griego Kʼop ti chalbe skʼoplal Kristoe , o Achʼ Testamento .

(src)="52"> This restoration is based , not on the whim of the translators , but on sound , careful scholarship .
(trg)="50"> Jaʼ yuʼun , li Komite sventa Chʼul Tsʼibetike la snopik ti tstikʼbeik li sbi Dios ti bu onoʼox oy li ta orijinale .

(src)="53"> For example , Luke 4 : 18 quotes the words of Isaiah 61 : 1 .
(src)="54"> In the original Hebrew text , the name Jehovah appeared in that verse in Isaiah .
(trg)="52"> Jun skʼelobile , li ta Lukas 4 : 18 te lokʼem tal ta Isaías 61 : 1 , li ta orijinale te yichʼoj tal li sbi Diose .

(src)="55"> * Appropriately , then , in the New World Translation , Luke 4 : 18 is rendered : “ Jehovah’s spirit is upon me , because he anointed me to declare good news to the poor . ”
(trg)="53"> * Jech oxal , li Chʼul Tsʼibetik ta Mateo kʼalal ta Apokalipsis [ e ] xi chal li ta Lukas 4 : 18 : « Liʼ oy ta jtojolal li xchʼul espiritu Jeovae , yuʼun la stʼujun sventa chkalbe lekil aʼyejetik li buchʼutik abol sbaike » .

(src)="56"> Such renderings also help readers distinguish Jehovah God from his only - begotten Son , Jesus Christ .
(trg)="54"> Kʼalal chichʼ tunesbel li sbi Diose chkoltaatik li buchʼutik tskʼelik Vivlia sventa xchanik ti mu xkoʼolajik li Jeovae xchiʼuk li Jesukristoe .

(src)="57"> For instance , most translations render Matthew 22 : 44 as saying : “ The Lord said to my Lord . ”
(trg)="55"> Jech kʼuchaʼal liʼe , oy epal Vivliaetik ti xi jelubtasbil li ta Mateo 22 : 44 : « Li Kajvale xi laj yalbe li Kajvale » .
(trg)="56"> ( Biblia Jubileo 2000 . )

(src)="58"> But just who is speaking to whom ?
(trg)="57"> Pe ¿ buchʼu ti chkʼopoje xchiʼuk buchʼu ti chichʼ kʼoponele ?

(src)="59"> Actually , this verse is a quote from Psalm 110 : 1 , which , in the original Hebrew text , contains the divine name .
(trg)="58"> Li versikulo taje te lokʼem ta Salmo 110 : 1 , ti te chalbe sbi Dios li ta voʼneal evreo kʼope .

(src)="60"> The New World Translation therefore renders this verse : “ Jehovah said to my Lord : ‘ Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies beneath your feet . ’ ”
(trg)="59"> Jaʼ yuʼun , li ta Chʼul Tsʼibetik ta Mateo kʼalal ta Apokalipsis [ e ] xi laj yichʼ jelubtasel li ta Mateo 22 : 44 : « Xi albat yuʼun Jeova li Kajvale » .

(src)="61"> Grasping the distinction the Scriptures make between Jehovah God and his Son is not academic .
(src)="62"> It is crucial to one’s salvation .
(trg)="60"> Toj tsots skʼoplal ti xkaʼibetik smelolal ti chal Vivlia ti mu xkoʼolaj xchiʼuk Jeova li Jesuse , yuʼun xuʼ jta - o jkolebaltik .

(src)="63"> Says Acts 2 : 21 : “ Everyone who calls on the name of Jehovah will be saved . ”
(trg)="61"> Li ta Echos 2 : 21 xi chale : « Skotol li buchʼu tskʼan vokol ta sbi Jeovae jaʼ chkol » .

(src)="64"> Accuracy and Clarity
(src)="65"> There are additional outstanding features of the New World Translation .
(trg)="62"> Oy to kʼusi yan ti mu xkoʼolaj - o li Chʼul Tsʼibetik ta Mateo kʼalal ta Apokalipsis [ e ] .

(src)="66"> The highly refined Greek master text by Westcott and Hort was chosen as the main basis for this translation .
(trg)="63"> Kʼalal laj yichʼ jelubtasele jaʼ mas te laj yichʼ lokʼesel tal li ta tsʼibetik ta griego ti jaʼ yuʼun Westcott xchiʼuk Hort , ti solel lek skʼelojbeik skʼoplale .

(src)="67"> Painstaking care was then taken to render the original Greek as accurately and as literally as possible in simple , modern language .
(trg)="64"> Jech xtok , laj yichʼ kʼelel yan papiroetik , li tsʼibetik ti jaʼ yuʼun Nestle xchiʼuk Aland xchiʼuk li ta Sociedades Bíblicas Unidas .

(src)="68"> Doing so not only preserved much of the flavor and color of the original Bible writings but also opened up a world of understanding .
(trg)="65"> Laj yichʼ lek kʼelel sventa tukʼ xichʼ jelubtasel tal li ta orijinale , ti jamaluk ta aʼiele xchiʼuk kʼunuk ta aʼiele .

(src)="69"> For example , in one American Sign Language translation Matthew 5 : 29 , 30 is rendered : “ It is better to lose your eye or your hand than for your whole body to be thrown into hell fire . ”
(trg)="66"> Taje jaʼ koltavan sventa muuk xjel ti kʼu yelan tsʼibabil li ta orijinale .

(src)="70"> This promotes the false religious teaching that God is cruel and punishes the wicked by making them suffer in a burning fire .
(trg)="67"> Jech xtok chkoltavan sventa xkaʼibetik lek smelolal li kʼusi mu toʼox xkaʼitike .

(src)="71"> However , according to the early manuscripts , the original Greek term is “ Gehenna , ” not “ hell ” and depicts a state of eternal destruction .
(trg)="68"> Li ta Chʼul Tsʼibetik ta Mateo kʼalal ta Apokalipsis [ e ] laj yichʼ akʼel persa ti jechuk xichʼ tunesel li verboetik kʼuchaʼal ta orijinale .

(src)="72"> *
(src)="73"> The New World Translation also endeavors to convey the nuances of Greek verbs .
(trg)="69"> Li ta jeltos kʼopetik avie , li verboetike oy oxtos kʼu yelan ta tunesel , li june jaʼ ta sventa li kʼusi kʼotem xa ta pasele , li xchibale jaʼ ta sventa li kʼusi yakal chkʼot ta pasele xchiʼuk li yoxibale jaʼ ta sventa li kʼusi chkʼot ta pasel ta jelavele .

(src)="74"> In many modern languages , verbs are conjugated to convey the time of a verb’s action — that is , past , present , or future .
(trg)="70"> Li verboetik ta griego eke chalbe skʼoplal kʼusitik ti jlikel noʼox chkʼot ta pasele , ti kʼot xa ta pasele o ti chichʼ - o pasilanele .

(src)="76"> Consider Jesus ’ words at Matthew 6 : 33 .
(trg)="71"> Jkʼelbetik skʼoplal li kʼusi laj yal Jesus ta Mateo 6 : 33 .

(src)="77"> The Greek verb meaning “ seek ” conveys the idea of continuous action .
(trg)="72"> Kʼalal chichʼ jelubtasel li jun verbo ta griego « saʼel » xie , chakʼ ta aʼiel ti chichʼ - o pasilanele .

(src)="78"> The full impact of Jesus ’ words are thus brought out in the rendering : “ Keep on , then , seeking first the kingdom and his righteousness , and all these other things will be added to you . ”
(trg)="73"> Sventa xkaʼibetik lek smelolal li kʼusi laj yal Jesuse , xi laj yichʼ jelubtasel li versikulo taje : « Saʼilanik me baʼyel chaʼa li Ajvalilal yuʼun Dios xchiʼuk li stukʼilale , vaʼun ta me xakʼboxuk skotol li yan kʼusitik taje » .

(src)="79"> Similarly , Matthew 7 : 7 is rendered : “ Keep on asking , and it will be given you ; keep on seeking , and you will find ; keep on knocking , and it will be opened to you . ” — See also Romans 1 : 32 ; 6 : 2 ; Galatians 5 : 15 .
(trg)="74"> Li ta Mateo 7 : 7 eke xi laj yichʼ jelubtasele : « Kʼanilanik , vaʼun cha - akʼbatik ; saʼilanik , vaʼun chataik ; kʼojilanik li tiʼ nae , vaʼun chajambatik » .

(src)="81"> The Greek word psy·kheʹ , for instance , is translated “ soul ” in each of its occurrences .
(trg)="75"> Toj jtunelik li tsʼibetik ta yok vun ti yichʼoj tal li Vivlia liʼe .

(src)="82"> As a result , readers can quickly discern that , contrary to religious theories , the soul is not immortal .
(trg)="76"> Oy junantik tsʼibetik ta yok vun ti chal kʼu yelan ta alel ta junantik variante li jpʼelantik kʼop ta tsotsile .

(src)="85"> The release of the Christian Greek Scriptures in American Sign Language is only a beginning .

(src)="87"> Can readers be sure , though , that the American Sign Language version will have the accuracy and consistency of its English counterpart ?

(trg)="80"> Jech xtok laj yichʼ akʼel yan tsʼibetik ta yok vun ti bu tsjambe mas smelolal jpʼelantik kʼope .

(src)="91"> Bible translation teams were thus established in a number of lands throughout the world .

(src)="92"> A department called Translation Services was set up at the headquarters of the Watch Tower Society , in Brooklyn , New York , to meet the needs of those teams , to answer queries , and to ensure the harmony of the different language editions of the New World Translation .
(trg)="82"> Jaʼ yuʼun , li ta tsʼib ta yok vune chalbe smelolal ti kʼalal laj yichʼ tsʼibael ta voʼneal griego li tekstoetik taje , jaʼ skʼoplal li xtuchʼel nupunel ta registro civile .

(src)="93"> The Watch Tower Society has also developed a very useful tool , namely , a computerized system to aid Bible translators .
(src)="94"> Make no mistake : Translation work still requires much human effort .
(trg)="83"> Li Chʼul Tsʼibetik ta Mateo kʼalal ta Apokalipsis ta tsotsile jaʼ to noʼox yuni likeb , yuʼun nopbil ti chichʼ jelubtasel sliklej li Vivliae .

(src)="95"> But computerization has greatly simplified the lofty goal set for Bible translation teams , which is to render the New World Translation with the same accuracy and consistency as the English version .
(trg)="84"> ¿ Mi xuʼ jpat koʼontontik ti lek tukʼ laj yichʼ jelubtasel xchiʼuk ti jamal ta aʼiel kʼuchaʼal inglés li Vivlia taje ?
