Over at his blog With Meagre Powers, some months ago, George Athas offered his own custom translation of Genesis 1-2. I thought I would offer it here with my own responses to some of the more interesting aspects of his translation. I like how he has done it, and agree nine out of ten times. If you are interested in the translation or exegesis of these pivotal Bible chapters, you may find the text and comments stimulating.
Please forgive the poor transliterations of the Hebrew; I haven’t worked out fancy characters in WordPress yet.
I trust my comments show up!
Thanks to George for his fresh rendering of these fantastic and profound chapters.
