The Purification Process of God’s Word

“The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times” (Psalms 12:6)

Every generation needs to go through the purification process as words change meaning … The best translation of the Bible is of no value if the reader cannot understand what is written. The changing of word meanings can make a majestic translation to one generation a poor translation to following generations. This is why the Psalmist refers to more than one purification.

    Ilook around and see my brothers and sisters of christ disagreeing on what translation to use. i see on church building kjv only.How far have we slipped. We need a translation we can understand to reach the lost and dying of this world.I love all Christians and can sit down and fellowship with him no matter what translation he has,(kjv,nkj,nlt,niv,asv,es,cev etc). The Spirit meaning by the Holy Spirit is what revels the truth to our heart. The english language has changed over 200 times. i thank God for all the translators of the bible. “God told me one time don’t cause a believer to stumble(complain) because of the translation he is using. I will plant the Word in their heart. The mind needs a little help. I can handle my job you handle yours” I thank you again for this dear article.
