I like to find signs that strike me as funny. How about this one? I wasn’t quite sure what I was being cautioned about. Nor why it deserved a “thumb’s up!” In translating Scriptures, it is important that great care is taken to get the true meaning of the words into the the language being translated. Strict word-for-word translations can cause confusion and may not always communicate the truth the Word of God is trying to impress upon us. Sometimes a more cultural selection of words is closer to the truth. Pray for translators as they work carefully with God’s word in Papua New Guinea today.
