Heb 10:23 & ASV97
- Since my "inbox" has not been directly invaded by messages from the
tc-list lately, I decided to post two questions, which I hope will cause
1) In Heb.10:23 the KJV has "faith" where the Greek has "hope" (elpis).
Some have asserted that the King´s translators simply produced this
rendering due to their failure to distinguish between pistis and elpis in
this instance. In other words, the translators just missed it here. But
this seems very unlikely, in the face of the learning and skills of the
many translators involved. Can anybody give a report on this??
2) Lately I read about a new translation project (which is appearing on
the Net) called the "American Standard Version 1997" (ASV 97). I checked
Matthew 10:8 and found it to omit the phrase "raise the dead" (found in
the old uncials and the TR) which means the "ASV 97" follows a majority
text reading here. Is there anybody out there who knows about the project
and its textbase??
All responses will be appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
