Overview

The New World Translation (NWT) is published by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. This is the organization that Jehovah's Witnesses belong to. But how reliable is this Bible version This review will evaluate the NWT by looking at select passages from Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians. The standards I will use here are the same standards that I use in evaluating over thirty versions of the Bible in my book Differences Between Bible Versions. Simply put, does the translation faithfully and accurately render the Greek text into English More specifically, are words translated correctly Are words left untranslated Are words added without any indication that they have been added Are the grammatical forms of words altered Are phrases paraphrased rather than translated How readable is the text And how reliable is the Greek text being translated
