An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
A confession: Gotta be honest….in the Old Testament, and The Tanach, I kind of glaze over all the names I can’t pronounce, and the towns that may, or may not, still be in existence. You know, the ‘this was given to that tribe, and all the towns and such. Yep, I am actually reading both, at the same time. I read the NKJV, then the English translation, of The Torah, The Prophets, and The Writings. Obviously, there isn’t a New Testament in there. But it has helped me to understand better what I am reading. I highly recommend it. They are pretty much the same, but there are some words translated from Hebrew into English that are different from the KJV and NKJV. Just one example - Dolphins in one, badgers in the other (Exodus). Seriously, two different animals. Yet, the verses are the same, and I have gained better understanding of what was going on way back when, and find a lot of it, quite pertinent to today’s life.
Just thought I’d toss that in.
