I’m not supposed to let a girl feel insecure or weird on our first date? What world are we living in? Those are the only emotions either of us will be feeling for a big chunk of the initial time we spend together.
You just have to come to terms with the fact that God breathed his word in Greek and Hebrew, and he also confused languages at Babel. The result is that we are reading a Bible that was not written in the languages we speak. With that out of the way, “word-for-word” is a bad approach to translation.
