The KJV Bible is one of the major translation efforts in English of the entire Bible. In order to be a trustworthy translation, this Bible has to undergo extensive revision, and KJV has to make sure that it meets this goal. Because the Bible is more than a single book, it often takes two to three Bible translators to produce an acceptable English version. It is very important that the Bible project is successful because if the KJV Bible is not correct, it will affect the lives of thousands of people around the world.
KJV has to be perfect in order to provide a faithful translation. However, one problem that comes up during the development process is how to find inconsistencies between the New Testament and Old Testament books. The contradictions in the Bible are due to different translators who wrote the books at different times. This means that the people who are currently living cannot be witnesses or they would have contradicted themselves in one way or another.
The Bible translations are considered the source of inspiration for the Bible reader. There are more than forty Christian languages in use today. Therefore, it is not enough for the new translation to translate the same words that have been found in other versions. New Testament translators who did not take this into consideration caused the Bible to have inconsistencies. In order to prevent these discrepancies from occurring in the future, all Bible translators are required to follow a common process of document re-coding.
During the document re-coding process, KJV has to ensure that it ensures the reader is able to understand the message of the Bible. In order to help the reader understand the Bible, the Bible project includes original documents and transcriptions of the Bible for several languages. These documents include the original Hebrew and Greek manuscripts, which can be very difficult to understand at times.
In order to make the Bible easier to read, the translators are allowed to mark in Greek and Hebrew the areas where the text in these languages differs from the original. They then had to create a new version that made sense to the readers. Although the translators tried their best to re-coding their document, it is still difficult to do.
Another issue that most Bible readers face is that of homogenization. While the Bible translators try their best to avoid certain words that might offend some religious believers, the Bible has very specific language that is not easy to understand. In order to fix this problem, it is the translator’s job to re-coding the text in the languages that it is currently used in.
For example, the KJV has an English word such as “man” and it translates it to “mankind”. However, in Hebrew the word is translated as “household” and the word is written as “shinu kerem”. So, the translators are responsible for adding the right words in order to properly translate.
All translations are great if they are accurate, but the Bible has been called the Word of God. Therefore, it is important that people who read the Bible and appreciate its message keep it in its original form. By doing this, the Bible project will continue to achieve the goal of accuracy while being informative and inspiring.
