Pertinent to any discussion of translation and paraphrase is the question of how the Bible itself, when it has occasion to do so, translates …

When the Bible itself “translates,” it does so, not in a literal, slavishly word-for-word manner, but in a broader sense, concentrating on the meaning and intent of the passage.
