Black eye?

Black eye
Black eye

Ouch! Usually a black eye is the result of an accident or fight. This poor sow was born with hers! Not everything is what it seems. In translating a complex thought or word in a language for the first time, the initial translation may not be the best. That is why segments of drafted Scripture translations in Papua New Guinea are taken back to villages where they are discussed in the context where they will be read.  It is not unusual that a new term or word is discovered to have a clearer meaning and the translation is changed. Pray for these “village checks.” Pray that the correct words would be used and the meaning becomes clear.
