(trg)="2"> Toib doctor goniʼbu que pal buñ naquiin la Biblia nacni suusi toib mextra naquiin toib libro ni bireʼ ló íz 1920 par nasuidy mbiox de Química .

(src)="4"> In other words , some see the Bible as hopelessly outdated .
(trg)="4"> Modcuca noʼ buñ ni ná que la Biblia ma godudy xtzúni .

(src)="5"> Why would anyone use such an ancient guide in today’s modern , high - tech world ?
(trg)="5"> Nabanyno ló toib tiemp ro bidza cós copy né noʼ xidal clas tecnologías , ¿ xigony ñoʼ ni ñaiby naquiin la Biblia ni ma xidzúgolu cuá ?

(trg)="9"> Né información ni guirá ór careʼ , ¿ xigony raquiinno xcalrracné la Biblia , toib libro ni cuá ma de goló chop mil íz ?

(src)="10"> Would not skeptics be right in saying that using such an ancient book for guidance is like using an outdated chemistry book or computer manual ?

(src)="1"> PICTURE THIS : You are touring a museum full of ancient monuments .
(trg)="1"> BUNYSI PENSARY que noʼlo lainy toib museo ro bidza palory ni ma xidzú íz goyaʼ .

(src)="2"> Most are pitted , weathered , and eroded .
(trg)="2"> Casi guiráni ma noʼ guʼur láani , ma nibalaʼni .

(src)="3"> Some have great chunks missing .
(trg)="3"> Tipnésni ma biroʼ cueʼ .

(src)="4"> One , though , is remarkably intact ; its intricate design is clear in every detail .
(trg)="4"> Per rabiʼlo que toibticani nasacdxiich .

(src)="6"> you ask your guide .
(trg)="5"> Riendxich ximod goyaʼni .

(src)="7"> “ No , ” he responds , “ it is older than most , and it has never been rebuilt . ”
(src)="8"> “ Has it been sheltered ? ”
(trg)="6"> Ranabdiitzlo buñ ni sané looy : « ¿ Ndeʼ más nicopyni que stipnésca la ? »

(src)="9"> you ask .
(src)="10"> “ No , ” says your guide , “ this one has faced the worst wind and rain .
(trg)="7"> Láabu racapybu : « Yaca , más nigolienni , dipa ma goyoʼ ór góc copyni » .

(src)="11"> And many vandals have tried to mar it . ”
(trg)="8"> Ranabdiitzlo láabu stoib : « ¿ Ragoʼtzaydxichto láani la ? » .

(src)="12"> Perhaps you would wonder in amazement , ‘ What is it made of ? ’
(trg)="9"> Láabu racapybu looy : « Yaca , ndeʼ chonan xi guirá cós ma gosaclóo , ma gonás guiee né buu láani né xidal buñ ná nabann láani » .

(src)="13"> In a way , the Bible is like that remarkable monument .
(trg)="10"> Sigory ranabdiitzlo looyca : « ¿ Xí clas yoo biquiinyibu órni bisaʼyibu láani ? » .

(src)="14"> It is a very ancient book ​ — older than most .
(trg)="11"> Labúu guinino que la Biblia nacni xomod palory ni ma xidzú íz goyaʼ per ná scú nasacdxiichni .

(src)="15"> There are other ancient books , of course .
(trg)="12"> Láani más nigolienni que casiʼ guirá libros ni noʼ .

(src)="16"> But like eroded old monuments , most old writings have been badly damaged by the passage of time .
(trg)="13"> Nanno que noʼ stipnés guiich ni láaca nigolien xomod palory ni bisetlano noʼ lainy museo , per ma biooxni portín ma napni xidal íz .

(src)="17"> Their statements on science , for instance , have been contradicted by new knowledge , provable facts .
(trg)="14"> Tipnés temas ni raniʼ de ciencia ni sieed ló guiich golien reʼ , ma godudy xtzúni portín ma bireʼ temas ni más nicopy .

(src)="18"> Their medical counsel often seems more dangerous than helpful .
(trg)="15"> Remeidy ni rasetlani , xalagary gacnéni buñ más ronyni mal .

(src)="19"> And many ancient writings are mere fragments of what they once were ; parts have been lost or badly damaged .
(trg)="16"> Né xidal guiich golien reʼ ma nosi tiplaʼsi noʼ , portín ma biooxni o ma bixinni .

(src)="20"> The Bible , though , stands out as different .
(trg)="17"> Per la Biblia diti nacni scú .

(src)="21"> The writing of it began over 35 centuries ago , yet the Bible is intact .
(trg)="18"> Ma napni más de tzón mil gaaygayoʼ íz , né diti ma biooxni .

(src)="22"> And though it has been attacked again and again over the centuries ​ — burned , banned , and belittled — ​ its statements have weathered every onslaught .
(trg)="19"> Né desde ló dzú ni see dada ló naareʼ , goyoʼ ni bisaʼij láani , gobierno diti raduidy permís gap buñ láani né noʼ ni raniʼ mal de láani , ná scú diti ma binitlóni .

(src)="23"> Far from being proved obsolete in the face of new knowledge , the Bible says much that shows amazing foresight . ​ — See the box “ Outdated or Ahead of Its Time ? ”
(trg)="20"> Galnan ni noʼ ló naareʼ diti ma buny gan láani , portín antes que buñnan ñan toib cós , la Biblia ma goniʼ láani ( bibiʼ cuadriyen ni ná , « ¿ Ma godudy xtzúni o más nanni que buñnan la ? » ) .

(src)="24"> You may wonder , though , ‘ Are Bible teachings really practical for our modern day ? ’
(trg)="21"> Ná scú , sigory ranabdiitzlo looyca : « ¿ Nigolúpa racné xilitz la Biblia buñ la ? » .

(src)="25"> To answer , ask yourself : ‘ What are the worst problems facing mankind today ?
(trg)="22"> Par ganno ximod rarexa galrranabdiitz reʼ , buny pensary ló guirá galnagan ni racaló buñ ló naareʼ .

(src)="26"> Which ones are the most terrifying ? ’

(src)="27"> Perhaps you think of warfare , pollution , crime , or corruption .
(trg)="24"> Sigory rieed ló xpensarylo guerr , Gudxlio caxinni , buñ ronynaa saʼ .

(src)="28"> Now consider some principles that the Bible teaches .
(src)="29"> As you do , ask yourself , ‘ If people lived by these values , would the world be a better place ? ’
(trg)="25"> Nigoreʼ buny pensary ló tipnés galrrasuidy ni sieed ló la Biblia né , laʼga casuidylo láani , gonabdiitz looyca : « ¿ Más sacró nabésno pal buñ nasob guirá ndeʼ la ? » .

(trg)="48"> Non « ganno mbiox bisapy né gonaʼ viod ló ro cadudyibu ló galnagan » ( Santiago 1 : 27 ) .

(src)="52"> The Bible does not merely list those values .
