Minor Updates to the NLT

Thanks to the website The Bible Hunter, we were recently made aware of some minor edits taking place with the New Living Translation. You can read the entire page at this link. I’ve listed a few samples below, the strikeouts are obviously the removed sections, the italics represent the new additions. It is easier to read at the link, so I encourage you to click through.

Many involve word changes:

Jer. 40:7 The leaders of the Judean guerrilla bands military groups in the countryside heard…

Matt. 1:19 Joseph, her fiancé to whom she was engaged, was a good righteous man and did not want to disgrace her publicly…

Matt. 6:24 …You cannot serve both God and be enslaved to money.

Matt 8:28two men who were possessed by demons met him. They lived in a cemetery came out of the tombs and were so violent that no one could go through that area.

Matt 9: 8 Fear swept through the crowd as they saw this happen. And they praised God for sending a man with such great giving humans such authority.

More than two-thirds of those listed are from the New Testament.

A few involve the paragraph sub-headers added to the text and the copyright page.

Only one verse undergoes a major change:

Hebrews 11: 1 Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.
