Young's Literal Translation of the Bible

( 5 )

Overview

Robert Young's 1898 edition of his translation. This is the third and last edition that he produced. Translation uses the same Elizabethian language that the King James Version uses. However, being a strictly literal translation, the word order is different from the KJV, so it does read different than the KJV and can be difficult at times to read.

Overview

Robert Young's 1898 edition of his translation. This is the third and last edition that he produced. Translation uses the same Elizabethian language that the King James Version uses. However, being a strictly literal translation, the word order is different from the KJV, so it does read different than the KJV and can be difficult at times to read. Being a strictly literal translation makes it the perfect study tool. You can now see exactly what God said and how He said it. There is no changing of words, no softening of words or passages, just translated strictly as it was written in the original languages. Text is done in 9 point print, which is larger and easier to read than the print sizes used in the past by other publishers. This translation will allow the reader to see exactly what God said and will allow a more precise study of the Bible. How can a reader study a Bible when the translators have have interpreted instead of translated? The vast number of modern translation interpret (tell you what they thought God meant) instead of translate (tell you what God actually said). When Robert Young translated this edition, he was not trying to please or appease someone, he was not trying to be politically correct, he was not translating in an attempt to rewrite the Bible to fit his theological beliefs. With this Bible, you get the word of God and nothing but the word of God.

    Great reference tool.

    This is a great reference to compare against your regular bible. Some of the original (literal) verbage is dramtically different from that customarily found in print today.

    Dear Sirs, I had a copy of Young's Literal Translation of the B

    Dear Sirs,

    I had a copy of Young's Literal Translation of the Bible and the Holy Spirit pointed out a grave error to me in the translation. It was Exodus 22: 20. This scripture cannot possibly be a correct translation, because actually it is idolatrous.

    Look and compare it to the King James Version.

    Exodus 22:20
    Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

    "20 `He who is sacrificing to a god, save to Jehovah alone, is devoted." (YLT)

    This word "devoted" is wrong. It is suggesting that sacrificing to other gods is correct!

    Now look at the King James:

    Exodus 22:20
    King James Version (KJV)

    "20 He that sacrificeth unto any god, save unto the Lord only, he shall be utterly destroyed."(KJV)

    You need to remove it from your website for your own protection. I tore it up and threw it away!

    Sincerely,

    Anita

    good for reference, but not a "take with"

    It's quite bulky and much of it reads exactly like a KJV. Unfamiliar terms are pretty much explained in the intro section. Where passages differ from KJV there is usually no loss of meaning. The word order can be a bit awkward at times, but I knew that going in. King James is still my primary Bible, but this one can make for interesting comparison and sometime shed some light. I would really like a more portable version.

    Okay

    I have simple touch and the print ran straight off the page. Ex. And darkness (where it goes off) the face of the earth. Something to consider.
