I think this will really bug some people as it bugs me. It seems that Exodus 22:8-9 is clearly referring to judges but some translations like the NLT, ESV, NRSV rendered elohim as “God“; but TNIV and CSB rendered elohim as “judges“. Yes, technically, “God” is correct; but it seems clear to me that elohim… Read More Exodus 22:8-9 “God” or “Judges”?
Matthew 19:29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother (NRSV) And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother (TNIV) Mark 10:29 there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father (NRSV) no one who has… Read More Luke 18:29 – Is TNIV gender-accurate?
Hopefully, this will be my last post on the TNIV for a little while. There are better things to blog about. As for a gender-accurate (gender-inclusive) translation, I will be going with the NRSV as my main translation of choice; second will be the NLT.

Due to this recent move by Zondervan, I think I will… Read More Zondervan and TNIV: like a father who has thrown out its child after birth
Amongst my most popular tags were “TNIV”. The life support it received from some of us blogger fans of the TNIV just wasn’t enough to keep it going. I know there are many of us blogging about this issue. I’ve just previous blogged about it here earlier today but I think the TNIV needs a… Read More My eulogy and final blessings go with the TNIV. 2001 – 2009. RIP
Thanks to a commenter here I’ve just learned that the people at Zondervan have officially killed the Today’s New International Version (TNIV translation). Christianity Today blog has just released news of this decision which had been brewing in the headquarters at Zondervan within the last ten days. Zondervan’s past and present supporters of the TNIV… Read More The TNIV is now officially a dead translation
Ephesians 3:16 – 18: ESV: that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, NLT: I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit. NRSV: I pray that, according to… Read More Eph. 3:16-18 “I pray that…”
As I was reading John 1:1-18, a Christmas reading related to Christ birth into this world, I came across a word that stuck out for me in John 1:13: 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children… Read More John 1:13, TNIV – It’s man, not husband
I want to thank Zondervan for the wonderful promotional copy of the TNIV Reference Bible in the Renaissance fine leather edition. And I also must say thanks to TC Robinson at New Leaven for his correspondence with Zondervan to get some of us pastors signed up for this outstanding gift. When I opened the box,… Read More TNIV Reference Bible, Renaissance Fine Leather
