      We speak a lot of translation philosophy. This chart (REVISED March 2,
      1999) attempts to arrange the translations below from the very literal to
      the full paraphrase. Suggestions are welcome. Also, I do not have a NEB
      with me and am estimating the date. Comments on the gender chart are also
      sought.
