Challenge #3: Day 5

bibletranslationsPsalm 72

What you have read from over the past four days is a sampling of translations that use the word-for-word or verbal equivalence or formal correspondence philosophy. These are the best Bible’s to use for Bible study as they are linked to many study aids such as concordances and dictionaries, and you can also be pretty certain that the English words used come from translations of the original Hebrew or Greek.

Here are a few more translations that use this philosophy that you can try out if you like:

  • Young’s Literal Translation (YLT)
  • Amplified Bible (AMP)
  • World English Bible (WEB)

Go to and type in the reading for today. Choose whichever translation you would like that uses this philosophy.

1. Choose a verse or two to write out in your notebook.

2. Decide which is your favourite word-for-word translation.
